First ever Serbian beer for me. Found this from local grocery store in Zakynthos Island, Greece. This is better than Finnish bulk beers. Nothing special thou. Malty but would need a bit more of hops.

Barwa złota, piana biała, dość długo się utrzymuje. W aromacie nuty słodowe ale też chmielowe. W smaku dużo nut słodowych ale też bardzo przyjemna chmielowa goryczka się pojawia.

Enjoyed a can of this beer poured into a glass in Belgrade, Serbia. The beer had a standard gold color with a good-sized foamy white head with modest retention, cling, and lacing. Its aroma featured a mild mixture of earthy and grainy hops along with some lighter straw and barley. The beer had a modest grainy bitter flavor with notes of straw and barley and a slight sour effect. It was a lighter, thinner beer with average carbonation and was a touch dry.

BOTTLE (steinie) 33 CL at 4,6% abv. Clear straw, white head. Smells sweetish, even fruity. Dusty grains and spicy pungent light bitter finish. Not bad.

500ml Can in Bar Pausa Caffé, Trieste, Italy (€2):
This one was a terrible introduction to Serbian beer, definitely one of the worst lagers I’ve tried in a while & not one that I could recommend. There was way too much skunk showing & the taste lacked on pretty much everything, the beer was watery & bland making it a real struggle to finish despite the Italian sun making me thirsty; the fact that it was my first Serbian beer was the only positive I took from this one.

Virpazar 3/8 2015. 1,5 liter jug from the local supermarket. Label with braying stag tries to convince you that this is a manly beer. Pours clear yellow with white head. Settles as 0,3 cm layer of foam. Aroma is of sweet malts and a little murky. A little wet cardboard in there? Medium carbonation. Taste is sweetish, grainy and malty and with a strange aftertaste which is sweet and sour at the same time. When you burp afterwards you get to enjoy the sourness once again. I do not know if this is a manly beer - then again I do not know if I am man enough for 1,5 liter of this.
