Nuffield (3637) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2014
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 (2015) - 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.
