Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Very popular brew at Wob. Aroma of grain and corn. Sips light to medium..Crisp and clean and surprisingly fresh with little adjunct flavor or green bottle skunk which I was expecting. Middle and finish is slightly weak. Decent liveliness, little lace and white foam.

Franzen (397) - SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2015
Fresh lemony aroma with hints of honey. Taste is malty sweet with some canned corn, pretty medioker taste which is a pity with the nice aroma. Refreshing beer with nice aroma but should be more bitter and better brewed to avoid the canned corn flacvours. Also could be drier with more carbonation.

luser2000 (135) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 13, 2015
Nagyüzemi sör, így is kell kezelni. Ha a nyaralás során lehet kapni Ozujsko Pivo-t is, akkor az jobb választás. Ez egy igen átlagos készítmény.

Piw (400) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - JUL 12, 2015
330ml Flasche. Klar und golden. Kleine Schaumkrone. Lager der besseren Art. Gut trinkbar, ohne den typisch metallischen Geschmack vieler anderer Industrielager.

Alengrin (3221) - BELGIUM - JUL 10, 2015
Croatia’s national standard lager, from a green bottle, which often spells certain doom in terms of skunkiness... Cristal clear yellow golden colour with very little visible fizz, still bearing an off-white, irregular, moussy head retaining very well. Simple, blandly sweetish macro lager aroma of lots of cooked corn, melting plastic and eventually even a sulphuric smell of burnt rubber, hand soap, a faint whiff of iron, hard mineral water, stale white bread and old powder sugar, but almost no sign of hops apart from a faint hint of onsetting lightstruck skunkiness. Dull taste: sourish grains, lightly oily but otherwise thin mouthfeel, spritzy carbo more effective than expected based on the looks but clearly artificial; corn sweetishness dominates the middle, very bland, somewhat metallic but not exagerratedly so, leading to a watery, fading finish of lingering corn and cheap grains along with a vague chemical wryness and, all the way at the back, still a weak trace of grassy hop bitterishness, very simple and brief. A plastic-like chemical effect resides deep in the finish and will be the last impression you’ll get from this cheap macro industry lager. Way too chemical and way too cornish to be anywhere near enjoyable, this is poor even for its style - this feels very artificial and very cheap even for a macro pale lager. The only good thing about it, is that the lightstruck effect was still limited - clearly this bottle was fresh and has been kept in dark storage conditions. Otherwise chemical, wry, unpleasant and a beer to avoid at all time.

jamestulloch (2113) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 4, 2015
Keg at Dionysus, Dubrovnik. Clear golden body with a faint white head. Steady carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of grain, boiled rice and paper. Flavour of lemon peel, grass and cereal. Thin body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Soft fizz. A standard mass market Lager.

kalervo (853) - FINLAND - JUN 25, 2015
Hvarilla 6/2015. Drinkable pale lager, light body and short finish. Nothing special, nothing to remember (except the situation).

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2015 Bottle 0.5l. Croatian beer brewed in Karlovac. Its good if you want to drink more of them. But the quality of beer is not so high.
