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.

I guess this is not Pilsener but Lager. Not a heavy beer but has a very good balance between aroma and palate, I find it one of the best beer in the Balkans, I drink a lot when I was in Beograd.

Not sure what flavors would emerge from the 'original recipe'. Thin head, medicinal hops with minimal bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Can during a flight between BEG-ARN, May 2014. Clear golden/yellow with a large white head. Light with grass, bread and some boiled vegetables. The fnish was dry and with some bitternes. Drinkable.

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.
