Dark bottle - 500ml. Limpid golden body topped with a decently thick bubbly head. Aroma is fresh, herbal and dominated by hops. No skunkiness at all... Taste is malty and carries evident bready notes. Mouthfeel ends with a fair bitter final. Neither bad or exciting...

Pours a pale yellow with a thin white head.Heavy malt and corn tastes.This was a light bodied beer with some bitterness.No wow factor here.This was no fun beer.

Bottle. Slightly better than most lager-in-green-bottle-from-country-not-particularl beers, but the only real claim to fame that this one has with me is that I now get to add Croatia. Some recognizable hops, a halfways decent malty backbone. Slight skunkiness and not very flavorful. Guess Id have one or two more if I should find myself in Croatia.

i tried this beer last summer, and though well of it ... it is better than most of the stuff coming out of canada, getting up there with some of the czech and russian pilsners.

Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. It did have the typical Euro lager aroma, but a better appearance than I expected. I poured the contents out of its brown bottle and into my tall Pilsner Urquell glass. Some large bubbles, but overall the head was slow to diminish. Flavor was unassuming with a slight corn/rice aftertaste. Light enough on the hops to pawn off on a macro drinker. If I was at a disco in Dubrovnik Id be drinking a Karlovacko.

This beer was very average with a slightly skuny flavor. Fresh Im sure its quite crisper, but the flavor is not that great in the States. Pale Lager seems to be a fairly tough style to do well.

The bottle that Chaz and I drank from was brown, unlike the one in the picture here.....I think the brown bottle kept the skunk levels fairly low. Aroma was sweet, notes of corn. The flavor was rather bland, but it sort of grew on me as I drank it....sweet malts, subtle hops in the finish, a bit dry.....acceptable.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2004
Bottle- Yellow/gold body with little to no head present after about 10 seconds. Aroma is slightly skunky and corny. Taste is apples, and hops with a little too much water in there. Tastes almost like a light cider. Great for a hot summer day I imagine.

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 2, 2004
My bottle was brown. Very little head and is a decent gold with few bubbles. I had a hard time gaining any aroma from this. The flavor is equally difficult to discern. Ther eis nothign bad here, just nothing here. Too light.
