MoritzF (9094) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - OCT 1, 2007
(33cl can) Clear, pale golden colour with a foamy white medium-sized head. Sweet and a bit milky malty nose. Light-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied, crispy mouthfeel. Soft malty taste without any specific character; slim finish with a faint bitterness. Plain but still somewhat drinkable Lager.

thewolf (11847) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2007
Bottle @ ChristianScheffel tasting. Bought in ’Yugo Market’, Nijmegen. Pours a little yellow-golden with a small frothy whipped egg-whites white head. Aroma is hay, malts, dough and slight citric bitterness. Relatively okay mouthfeel. Flavour is limited, a bit too malty sweet in my opinion.

jerohen (2133) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2007
Clear golden coloured, dying head. Somehat grainy nose. Malty sweetness in flavour, almost no bitterness. Watery, but imho better than Ozujsko.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 21, 2007
Pours a clear gold that holds almost no head after a few seconds. Nose is slightly cereal sweet. Bitter acrid tone to it. Slight fruity tone to it. Man. This tastes...funny. I want to say it almost tastes like apple juice beer. Which is interesting on the first sip. Then the whole flavor profile just jumps off the edge of the cliff. Turns bitter and metallic and has no good quality to it really. Feel is standard with minimal carbonation. I doubt I am going to get through this whole thing. So bland. So...just...so...not that worth drinking. Oh well. Add another country to the list.

LinusStick (3137) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2007
Typical Eastern pale lager. Aroma of skunk. Pour a light gold with no substance. Taste was skunk, corn and grain. Very thin and very boring.

jonas (6482) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2007
Bottle. Golden, heavily carbonated, off-white foamy head. Grainy, ok hop aromatics. Very lightbodied, hay, light nut and marzipan. Forcecarbonated mouthfeel. Wheat aftertaste.

heavy (2356) - Split, CROATIA - AUG 29, 2007
UPDATED: APR 9, 2008 New review:
OK, the old rate was quite optimistic. 0.5 bottle which poured pale golden body with medium, quite short living head. Aroma is with citrus hops and some sourish apple. Bitterish flavor, can be mettalic sweetish if near the BB date, but this one was fine. Quite lot carbonated with bitterish, more like average lager finish. Of course, still my favorite Croatian macro lager
Old review:
One of the few good lager beers in Croatia. Pale golden with moderate white head. Average carbonation. Really nice aroma of citrus or something similar with some wheat. Relatively bitter flavor. Feels quite well in the mouth, medium body and finish.7/4/5/3/13
