3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from Café Bar Cedar in Pula, Croatia (20kn):
This was a fairly easy beer to drink & nothing really put me off it other than it being slightly thinner than I’d have liked & was expecting but it wasn’t a weak beer at least. Surprisingly there was little sign of an alcohol though but the hints of skunk and the grassy hops reminded me of the pale lager version of the brewery too much for me to fully enjoy this one.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beer made of a very good water, other qualities are pretty much average. Roasted malt thin aroma, carbonation is good. Nice tan head, almost transparent. Not so bad, nothing special.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle in Doubrovnik, Croatia. Roasted malt aroma with hints of toffee and caramel. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head with no retention or lacing. Starts with toasted malt flavors with a hint of toffee sweetness and a light, drinkable body. Finishes smooth and pretty refreshing with some caramel and a slight nuttiness to it. Good, but nothing special.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Konzum, Dubrovnik. Clear brown body with a thick beige head. Lively carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of builder’s tea, brown sugar and maple syrup. Flavour of flat Coca-Cola, caramel and weak coffee with a sour finish. Thin body with a watery mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Sweet and thin. A bit odd.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma and taste are the same mass lagerish which dont tempt u . Palate is surprisingly nice, soft carbonation and a bit of body to the beer but in the end nothing to recommend

Birra che non ha nessuna pretesa, poco saporita, alla fine comunque bevibile.
