Karlovasco is one of the two market leaders in croatia. It is a pale larger beer with a bit stronger taste. By far the best of croatia, but unfortunately it is loosing popularity. Comparable with lasko in slovenia.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Yay for rate whoring, now I have Croatia. Pours a regular yellow with a white head. Really light, empty honey and grain nose. Flavor of sour or moldy honey and light grains, similar to the aroma but the flavor is much stronger honey. Not bad at all, pretty good for a pale lager. Very thin though, I don’t like that.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Semi-fruity, watery, light mouthfeel - boring but drinkable. A small step above some of the standard lagers.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2006 The bottle poured a crystal clear pale yellow liquid with a rocky head that lasted less than two minutes leaving no lacing. The aroma was primarily of sweet malt with a dry-dirt nuance lingering in the background. The mouthfeel is light, smooth and refreshing while the flavor is unobtrusive. There is quite a bit of malt sweetness with well rounded clean hop bitterness. The middle is quite pleasant and the end lasts a long time with little to no bitter aftertaste. Quite nice.
