2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark gold with aroma of cooked peas. The scent also has a little bit of honey. The taste has some metallic carrots. There are also some flowery hop notes coming through. Surprisingly, this has some character. Fairly nice.

A bad beer. A beer brewn with no respect for the consumers or beer for a complete different market. ;-)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Considering it’s mountainous country of origin, this one turned out to be quite a thirst quencher. Tasted from the bottle and poured into a stem glass. Crystal clear pale-gold body with a high amount of fine carbonation holding up a decent tight white head. Slightly earthy aroma with a lot of resinous spicy and grassy hops coming through, quite clean. Hops dominate the palate, grassy, sour and floral, very light in body and flavour with a short bitter quenching swallow and little length. A little grain became noticeable after I had downed half of it but everything remained tightly in the background. Passable light lager, nothing spectacular.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Somewhat yeasty, fruity aroma. Quite a dry taste with some hints of fruitiness and flowery hops. This beer was certainly interesting given that I expected it to be nothing more than a normal crappy international lager. Therefore a pleasant suprise, though if I´d compare it to pilsner or real premium lagers this will do not so well.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Pale golden colour, but long lasting foamy layer; slightly hoppy nose, combined with some hints of unmalted barley; initial malty sweetness switches over to a light bitter flavour and a short bitter aftertaste; in some qualites similar to czech Lagers; nothing special, but quite well drinkable.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Different from the Lasko Zlatorog Club (GoldHorn) as far as I can tell from packaging.
Pours a clear deep yellow with white bubbley head that dissapates rapidly. Smells like...well just smells like beer, with a hint of mown grass.
Tastes typical of an Eastern European lager. Malty start with a bitter finish.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma is quite soapy, herbal and leafy hop aroma. Soft carbonation, but the horrible sulfury, soapy flavour is disgusting. Like drinking a bottle of dish detergent. From a 500 ml can, so it isn’t skunked... just gross. Down the drain with this one.
