Pivo prosto z Serbii. Jasno słomkowy kolor. Klarowne. W zapachu wyczuwa jedynie zielone jabko. Może delikatnie słody. Goryczki brak. Dalikatnie słodowe. Silne nasycenie. Piana ładna ale krótkotrwała. Ogólnie najlepsze serbskie piwo jakie piłem - chyba dla tego, że jedyne.

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
0.5l can poured into a chalice. Standard Euro Lager. A: Pale golden-yellow color with a 1 to 2 fingers white head which dissipates quickly leaving few lacings S: Light grains smell a bit of hop perfume. T: Malt and hops are evident. Taste is not bad for a beer made with corn. Nice bitter end M: Very light body. Notable carbonation. Very light taste D: Not bad I suppose that I can find better beers in Serbia, right?

Grzesiek79 (3255) - Radom, POLAND - OCT 8, 2014
Dosc dobry lager, przypominal smakiem i troche aromatem Czeskie pilsnery. Srednia piana kolor zlocisty, Pachnace subtelnie chmielem, w smaku czuc ze to dobrze odfermentowany lager, malo slodowy wyrazisty i tresciwy, a przy tym orzezwiajacy.

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 (439) - 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.

mzaar (1640) - Varberg, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2014
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.
