3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (2 litre plastic bottle from Dubrovnik):
Clean with some corn and light syrup coming through along with some sweetness and touches of grain. There was some bread as well as some lager hops.
Golden amber with a foamy head about the size of two fingers at the top of the glass. This turns to a soapy lacing.
Grassy hops to begin with along with a helping of corn and some sweetness that matches the aroma.
Clean, crisp finish to this one and a rather refreshing feel as well. There is a good lager like feel to it.
Although nothing special this one was a solid lager and quite refreshing to boot with a nice crisp finish. It was basic but done well and is probably one I would pick up again.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Best beer from a 2l plastic bottle. Usually I dont drink from 2l PET bottle but this is pretty OK.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Available previously as 1,5 l plastic bottle, now in 2 l bottles only. Obviously misses "original" in the name as it is probably not brewed under Reinheitsgebot and definitely different recipe than original. It pours pale yellow body with big head. Grainy, lemony and weaker bread malty aroma. Herbal, lemony hop, slightly sourish corny and bread malty flavor, thinner in body with somewhat sweetish to sourish finish. Not bad for a cheap pale lager. Since i initially rated it, Lowenbrau remains my top choice when drinking, giving best ratio of quality over price, while it’s widely available.
Old rating, Sep 03, 2007
Yellow body with moderate white head. Not strong aroma, hoppy. Flavor quite bitter, but it somehow fades soon, as the palate get used to it. Not so good finish, bit soapy. Better than average lager.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
big green plastic bottle 2000ml. -It can be found in almost every shop or supermarket in Croatia. Pretty cheap (not more than 17kn or 2.30€) so it’s wide spread here. Yellow/golden coloured, small white head, weak hint of grain in the nose. Light malty and grainy with bready notes in the finish. Boring but ok for cheap "every day" beer.

.5l can. Fizzy white head on pale orange-yellow body. Slightly sweeter and yeastier nose than most macros here. Tart, dry fizzy bitter over normal wattery sour lager. Could do worse here for sure.
