2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
11.15oz. bottle. This pours a clear golden color. Mine had minimal head, even though there was moderate carbonation. The aroma is actually pretty decent. There is a bit of a pleasant malt sweetness to the beer. The taste is not as good as the aroma. It is a bit thin, with a mild malt flavor. It doesn’t taste light, however. Definitely lacking in the hops department. I suppose this would be good if I were in Croatia, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy one here, except to add another country to the list.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Quite thin. Pours loght yellow with white top. Short taste. Neither very hoppy nor very malty. Not the best beer I’ve tried this year (not the worst either I suppose).

Clear light amber body. Pretty thick off-white head.
Sweet corn malt aroma,
Slightly astringent corn malt taste. Sweet well water caramel.
Okay… the sweetness is entertaining.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared with and courtesy of tupalev. Pours a clear pale gold with an average size lasting white head. Aroma of sweet grain and some light hops. Flavour’s the same. It’s decent enough for what it is, your average Euro Lager.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I think this is the same bottle (shared with Blankboy) - it is the one available on LCBO shelves, but is brown featuring a red label. No mater. Very light yellow, small white head. Very faint aroma - slight grain. Taste actually features some light hops, but also that not so good pale grainy taste. Bland, but not bad - best swill of the night so far (as we go back and forth from swill to decent). Likely a new country for me.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Differant bottle than pictured. Musty aroma. Golden yellow pour with a white head that diminishes. Fairly bitter, lightly hoppy. This is crap.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: If it looks like a macro, smells like a macro, and tastes like a macro it probably is brewed by Heineken. Standard pale lager.
