drtbrewster (40) - Arizona, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Standard lager, more hearty and skunkier than a Heineken, a decent ABV for a pale lager.

phfyysik (366) - Tartu, ESTONIA - APR 24, 2016
Pours golden clear with light head. Aroma is malty, grass, some hay, and sourness. Taste is dusty, paper, some grains, sweetness, hay. A lot of carbonisation. Typical macro lager.

Ollemies (52) - - APR 7, 2016
UPDATED: APR 24, 2016 Average macro lager. You get either this or O?ujsko when you ask for a beer in Croatia. Not much else to say. Refreshing on a hot summer day.

bartlebier (3167) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 4, 2016
33cl (BL sampler 1). So far among the more featureless - whether good or bad - emanations of the bland international pale lager style: cooked corn thaw water is given a hue of thin, metallic quenching lemonade using hop extract. Clean like filtered thaw water. Expert level blind tasting twin for Heineken.

nephirem (107) - CROATIA - MAR 8, 2016
Pours clear golden color with small white head. Smell of yeast and grass. Thin body with medium carbonation. Taste is plain, generic. Slightly bitter but in unpleasant way. Aroma of yeast, malts and a bit grassy. Weird metallic aftertaste. Overall, pretty poor.

adamnowek (1418) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2016
Bright yellow. Little carbonation. A bit sweet on the finish. Nothing special.

blutt59 (6409) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 19, 2016
Bottle from DandyWolfFloyd in trade , Croatia tick with bonus of 1001 beers tick, golden yellow with big foam, sweet malty aroma and flavor, almost tastes cola like with an Alec Bradley

seymour (1827) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 3, 2016
500ml green bottle into a snifter, it poured a crystal-clear golden colour with sudsy white foam which faded fast, but swirling would kick-up a new head each time. Typical pale lager traits: grainy, grassy, hint of DMS but not too corny, hint of black pepper spice, classier hop balance and drier finish compared to most ubiquitous Euro-Lagers. Decent for a sip, but the remainder was even better in my beer cheese soup. C’mon guys, this beer deserves better than an 8 rating!

midovark (222) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - JAN 25, 2016
0.5 l can in Croatia & on tap in Sopron, Hungary. Nothing outstanding, in any way, what’s more, the tapped one was even more disappointing. I wouldn’t consider it cheap for its ordinariness.

Bottle Aroma-bread, grass, Appearance-golden, clear, white foam, Taste-light sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, Palate-light body, thin feel, lively, abrupt finish Overall-poor
