Tall can. Thanks Henrik! Pours a pale gold with an average white head. Mild aroma of malt and grain. Taste is malt, corn, and metal. Nothing else going on.

Very thin beer. Just not much of anything. Maybe Serbs don’t bother with beer tasting much as the aircraft fuel they drink the rest of the time kills off their tastebuds? I had this a couple of times in Montenegro and it works as a typical Southern Europe beer, no flavor, drink it cold in the sunshine.

Can during flight from Belgrade to Copenhagen (Air Serbia). Clear golden with white head. Malty and hoppy citrusy aroma. Sweet malty, light fruity and light bitter taste. Light to medium body, average carbonation.

I found this to be a little better than other Balkan pilseners. It pours average enough--yellow/golden with a thin head. But I liked the sweetness and the slight sense of corn notwithstanding, the flavor profile is reasonably decent. Light hop finish, grassy but still sweet. Bottle in Skopje, Macedonia.

StefanSD (2190) - Lakeside, California, USA - FEB 22, 2014
330ml bottle courtesy of Erzengel. Thanks. Pours a clear gold color with a small white head that has poor retention. The aroma is sweetened canned corn. The taste is more sweet d\sron, cereal grains and some spicy hops on finish. The palate is thin with watery carbonation. Finishes short and dry. Overall: meh--but its good for the Serbia tick.
