nearly clear with frothy head from bottle, slight grassy nose. Nearly no taste, but lively carbonation. Something wicked on my tongue, like gasoline or other fuel. Really off-putting.

hrabren (568) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 26, 2016
Special bottle edition, I never even poured it in the glass. Dominantly malty, but not unpleasant, hops in the background. Typical bitterish-malty. Very drinkable, light lingering hoppy finish. Drank it very quickly, not bad.

Arek (854) - Zielona Góra & Wrocław, POLAND - APR 25, 2016
Bottle 0.5 l brewed at Trebjesa Pivara (Montenegro), 101 Piw, Wrocław, Poland.
Złote piwo z puszystą i trwałą pianą na dwa palce oraz słodowym zapachem. W smaku pełnie i słodowe z lekką goryczką na finiszu.

I really can’t drink anything from this brewery. I get headache after one glass of this beer. It’s better in bottle (glass) than can. Corn on taste. Too much corn. Not my pint of beer.

mariuszek (910) - Gdynia, POLAND - APR 3, 2016
Clear golden, rich head. Aroma of malt and hay. Taste is similar, malt, hay and wort. Belgrad Airport pick. Better than Stella anyway.

Dobro pivo, jake gorcine i dosta gazirano. Lijepog izgleda i postojane pjene. Posebno dobrog ukusa iz staklene ambalaze, dobro ohladjeno. Zivjeli

nephirem (110) - CROATIA - MAR 2, 2016
Pours clear golden color with medium white head. Typical lager smell. Thin body with high carbonation. Watery texture. Not really sure what to say about this one. It’s your usual lager. Taste is slightly bitter while aroma is somewhat lost due to the watery nature of this beer. It lacks definition, so to say. However, I wouldn’t mind drinking this as a quick refreshment during summer. Smooth and refreshing despite being a bit boring and generic.

0.5 l can. Pale golden color with no head. Medium bodied, softly carbonated. The usual lager aroma & taste. Boring.

koshack (1131) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JAN 23, 2016
Złote, klarowne. Piana biała , drobna, ale szybko pojawiają się duże pęcherze. Szybko opada, ze śladami na szkle. W aromacie po otwarciu butelki pojawił się chmiel, ale szybko zniknął. Po przelaniu do szkła tylko słód, który tez szybko zszedł do mało wyczuwalnych nut. W smaku lepiej, jest słodowe, ale nie słodkie. Lekko wytrawne. Gdzieś w tle nawet lekka goryczka. Typowy, przeciętny lager.

Alengrin (4076) - BELGIUM - JAN 22, 2016
Standard pale lager from a 33 cl bottle claiming it contains 5% ABV and having been brewed at Trebjesa (property of SAB Miller) in Montenegro; either this beer should be updated, or I have a slightly different version, but since I cannot be sure of either and the label is the same, I’m going for this one. Medium thick, only very lightly lacing, fairly stable, off-white head over a cristal clear and pure golden blonde beer with no visible fizz. Unexpectedly strongish aroma of sourdough, damp kitchen towels, old and moist newspapers, green apple peel without its refreshing effect, iron, rotting garden weeds, stale sweat, soggy corn. Sourish grains and sweetish corn in the onset, strong carbo with minerally and souring effect (the latter reinforcing the graininess), light and supple, metallic yet oily mouthfeel, while the grainy sourishness and corny sweetishness continue with the first being prevalent over the latter; finish is neutral, with only a very faint and brief amount of simple grassy hops added, but low bitterness, so that the play of dull sourishness and dull sweetishness can go on, fading to nothing after a few moments, though I can still taste a light grassy bitterness of the hops all the way in the end. Light metallic and minerally effects linger too. Feels very industrial and the sweet-and-sour graininess bothers me from the beginning onwards; clearly a macro pale lager of low class, probably not the absolute worst one I ever had in this style, but certainly not among the better ones either. Poured most of it down the drain.
