500 ml bottle, best before 09/10/15. English label says "Lager Beer with Caramel coloring." Is that so? Yet it pours as straw pale as any Lite. Still, it looks alright for a light lager, with its sudsy head and all. Slight skunk and oxidation is bearable. Taste was going all right as a bowling alley beer at the start, then took a detour with a mouthful of sugar. Slight note of noble hop pepper saves this being a wreck. If I were near the brewery, I’d sure try this fresh. I guess even though the label says "Montenegro," looks like RB will count this as my first Serbian beer instead. The things I do to keep up with the former Soviet and Yugoslav republics.

500ml can into shaker. Very faint metallic nose. Crystal clear amber beer with thin solid white head. Medium carbonation. Harshly carbonated on tasting. Strong herby, earthy taste which dominates everything. Pretty unpleasant. Eventually a little bubblegum sweetness is noticeable but it doesn’t last, the taste of dirt soon returns.

It is a classical beer from the Ex-Yougoslavia. The colour is clear and yellow, weak foam and average carbonation, typical for the lager beer. We can feel a bit the hop. It is a beer for the summer, on the beach with friends.

500 ml can. Bought in a Coop in Lausanne. Malty grass smell, some cereals. Golden color with white head. Sweety taste, some cereal notes, one of the cheap lagers from the good side, in the end have kind of a strong taste. Good for me.

The best on this beer was a small bottle. At least this gives some exclusivity to the beer. Nothins especiall in nose and taste. A standard pilsener. B@BanjaLuka

Saw this in a Supermarket in Croatia and was surprides how good it was. Its a good example that big brewerys can produce unique, special beer if they want too. Would definitely like one again.

500ml can - thanks Marduk and friends!
Sweet cornflakey aroma, maybe a little wheaty sweetness. Taste has that too, some orange, some paperiness - tastes a bit old, but BB is 3 months away. Extracty metallic hoppy finish. Pretty poor pale lager, but not a horror.
