50 cl bottle from a random corner store in Zagreb, served in a tulip. Dark brown, clear, with medium tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is predominantly skunky, with roasted malts, caramel, and hoppy grassy undertones. Body is medium, carbonation is soft. Taste is low to medium sweet, low to medium bitter, with medium long finish, texture is watery to oily.

Dark red to brown color, almost no head. Aroma of caramel, fruit. Taste caramel, very light body ending bitterness, too harsh. According to style this beer isn’t Oktoberfest/Märzen. This is mix of Velebitsko and Velebitsko dark, so the style should probably be polotmavy.(?)

Sour milk chocolate. Not so well balanced. Unappealing and def didn’t think it was an Ocktoberfest.

Beige head, dark brown clear liquid. Aroma is roasted malts. Taste is roasted malts, nuts. Fizzy on tongue, thin to medium body. Small bitterness, woody aftertaste. Refreshing, maybe because of that water they use. And what the heck means that this is "The first trotter’s beer"?! Okay beer for that price. It’s sad that Ličanka doesn’t make better beers, they make them just to be better than macros.

This beer is special because of the water from which it’s made of. The spring is in the hart of Velebit mountain in Croatia and it posseses one of the most quality waters in entire country. I’ve been drinking that beer for many years now and it’s unfortunately, today is not good as it used to be, due to commercialization, but it’s still one of the croatians best beers. Maybe the best! Unfortunatelyit can be found only in bottle.
