3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33 l bottle from a random bar in Livno. BB just a couple days ago, but likely stored in cool and dark all the time. Seems to be much less common than their dark beer. It poured nice hazy orange body with medium sized head. Weak biscuit aroma, some herbal and paper hops, peach and salt. Bitter flavor, herbal and only a bit papery hop, biscuit, slightly acidic from lack of pasteurization. Medium to thinner body with long bitter finish. Summer thirst quencher, not bad, I liked this more than their dark, although, same story, missed some malt to make it tastier. And I have to dispraise locals for negative attitude toward their beers, as well as brewers for making it 50-70% pricier than ordinary macro lagers, which won’t help the first problem.

Bottle 0.33. Probably best bosnian beer that I’ve tried. It has golden orange color with small white head. it has herbal and malty taste with very refreshing effect. Very solid beer.

Poured a remarkably nice misty dark golden body with a small but persistent tick white head. Appley nose - not a good thing. Fresh though, slightly herbal and malty. Appley malty taste, actually refreshing, ending in a slightly too simplistic bitterness... quite papery. Light, bitter finish. Has some faulty, but none that can’t be attributed to the fact that it’s past its BB date... Ok and the slightly simplistic hop sort (though generously used). This is probably a pretty good beer fresh. And the locals kept on trying to convince us that it was really bad BECAUSE it was local (and apologizing). "Support your local brewery" doesn’t seem to work there. And it’s definitely better than the macro crap they ARE drinking.
