0.5l bottle. Clear golden color with small, fast disappearing white head. Aroma of lemon. Taste is light sour and light bitter. Very drinkable.

Pours gold with a nice head. Aroma doesn’t match the color at all - smells chocolatey. Flavor is chocolate and metal with a hoppy bitter aftertaste. Interesting but I don’t want another.

"This is the "brewer’s description", huh? "Pretty good beer, but in poor looking package." OK. Actually, for a questionable country of origin pale lager, this was not as bad as expected. Picked up for me, so no financial investment on my part. TYpical straw yellow with light efervescence and some grain, with a mild hop bitterness on the back. Pretty generic, but non-offensive."

Zarkam (532) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2014
500ml bottle from a supermarket near Beograd. Clear yellow colour, small fully vanishing white frothy head, hardly any lacing. Light to moderate malty aroma of hay and grain with light floral hops. Taste is initally lightly bittersweet turning into a lightly bitter finish with an acetic feel. Light to medium body, lively carbonation, dry texture. Fairly standard but far from the worst pale lagers.

Flaska från Ivana Trgovina, Split (om i närheten, Ivana Trgovina är ett måste om du vill ha annat än de vanliga blaskölen). Klar guldfärgad med ett medelstort vitt skum. Säd och malt i doften. Smakinslag av malt, vitt bröd, lime och säd. Mjuk munkänsla. Maltsötman är för en lager nästintill perfekt.

500mL bottle purchased at Corti Brother’s 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 it’s 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 (775) - 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.

Grumbo (874) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2014
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.
