2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2006 A drinkable summer quencher from Slovenia. Poured bright gold with a tall souffle head that left dabs of foam and showed fair length. The drab Eurolager aroma promises a fairly metallic hop and soap. Nothing there to get excited about. The palate is the best thing about it. At 4C it has a nice soft mouthfeel with inobtrusive carbonation. The hop isn’t as dire as the aroma implied, providing some late bite in an otherwise sweetish brew showing butter and soap in the mid-palate. It’s nothing to write home about but I quite liked this.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Lightly hazed golden lager with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet corn and faint malt. In mouth, crisp sweetish malt with a sickly sweet finish, light hops in beginning daing away. Another EE wonder lager.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear gold, moderate head with decent retention. No real aroma other than a bicarbonate tang. Bland palate with a hint of grassy hops and a dry finish. Unremarkable.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a bright yellow with rapidly diminishing white head. Aroma of light malt and flavour strikes first as being undercarbonated and faintly citric. This one is pretty unremarkable but unskunked at least.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml can. Gold with a decent frothy head although only half an inch rather than the giant in the picture. Very carbonated with steady streams of tiny bubbles maintaining the head. Nice looking for the style. Aroma of salt, fish and cookies. Flavour seems to have a werid salty hop flavour. Has a bit of chewy malt. A bit rough but you could get used to it.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Canned) Clear, paleish golden with a minimal but lacy head. Mild, neutral-malty, cowdung-earthy and fishy, somewhat hoppy aroma. Buttery-grassy-hoppy, neutral-malty flavor with toffee notes. Somewhat aromatic-hoppy, slightly astringent finish. Light to medium-bodied, very carbonated palate. Hoppy enough to be classified as a pilsener. The style would be something between North-German and Czech. Quite smooth and drinkable, although a bit raw.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly orange tinted. A little malty with a spicy hop finish. This is a decent Bohemian-style pilsner, certainly not a "pale lager"
