500mL bottle purchased at Corti Brotherís in Sacramento. It says this beer is a product of Montenegro on the bottle, so I am not sure what that exactly means. Best by 11/15/14. The aroma has some cereal and a little dough-like qualities. Some fruitiness, too, and a bit of a metallic hop note. Transparent yellow body with a smallish, rapidly dissipating small white head present. Starts with a good cereal and milky malt blast. Fair sweetness throughout this beer, with perhaps a trace of diacetyl. Finishes with a nice, spicy, mildly bitter hop kick. This is fuller-bodied than most pale lagers, and itís not too shabby.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Andrew. Pours a clear copper color with a large white head. A light grainy honey nose. Smooth sweet malts, earthy, cereal. Pretty good. Drinkable.

ippopotamo36 (626) - Rome, ITALY - AUG 28, 2014
0,33 bottle in Serbia, after Matt and Marko reported that its quality has improved. Pours a pale yellow, extra filtered and clear, white foam which dissipates fast. Nose of malts, metal, some citrus. Mouth: sweeter than the previous one, bit malty, round overall body but still watery. Lemon feel. I would not mind drinking another one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330 ml bottle. Pours a clear, pale yellow with a fully disappearing, thin, white head. Sweet aroma of malt and corn. Sweet flavour of malt, corn and grass with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation.

Bottle from a Maxi store in Kotor, Montenegro. Country #105. Pours a golden yellow colour with decent white head. Aroma of malt, grain, yeast and hay. Average carbonation, medium body, slightly slick texture. Quite enjoyable.

Best beer in Serbia, medium bitterness, light sweetness, maybe itís not one of the best beer on the world but itís one of my favourites i have good memories thanks to Jelen.

Ixwhyzed (13) - Belgrade, SERBIA - AUG 7, 2014
To sum it up - an extremely cheep and rather uninteresting beer. In case youíre on a tight budget while visiting Serbia, this is probably your best choice.

BREWMUSKCLES (2342) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 28, 2014
aroma of light alcohol and caramel. seemed a little flat in the mouth but not so in the glass. corn and some burnt grass and ivy? some barley syrup. it has a clean pilsner character within it that just muddles things.
