Flaske på RB samling hjemme (takk til Odd Gunnar): kveldens fjerde nye land, og den beste av disse (pilsvariantene) til nå.

minutemat (886) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2013
A can or two during my visit to Serbia last year. From memory, this was a somewhat dull, grassy lager compared to recent tastes but satisfactory and thirst-quenching nonetheless. Wouldn’t say no to another ’pon my return to these parts.

Drinkable, just. Golden straw colour with low carbonation. Watery and pretty dull lager type soapy taste.

ThirstyBird (1198) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2013
Thanks to Tinus! 50 cl. can sampled @ RBBSG II. pours a clear golden yellow with a small off-white head. The smell is corn, grain and sweet malt. The taste follows the smell. Light in body with average carbonation yet soft.

Fredis23 (480) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2013
GP;d Color, Huge White Head, Some Lacing. Grainy, Corn Aroma. Taste about the same, grain, corn, sweet, not even a hint of a hop bite. Refreshing and drinkable, otherwise unremarkable and forgettable. After long day, It was quite OK. It reminds that pretty much every beer might have its time and moment, when it is smoother tastier and more enjoyable than most of the time. In search of good and complex brew, look some place else...

MiP (13047) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle, 5.0%. Malty, perhaps even sugary aroma. Clear yellow colour. Unstable white head. The flavour is mildly malty, has a little paper. Hint of bread in the finish. Medium bitterness, a little rough, but no more than many other lagers. OK mouthfeel. Not unpleasant, but a tad boring.

Bamsen78 (2413) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear pale golden with small white head. Clear aroma of yeast and hops. Bitter, hoppy flavour with estery and skunky notes. Bitter aftertaste. Another average non-German Pilsener. Drinkable but far from enjoyable.
