2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
650 ml brown plastic bottle. Thin and dense mostly lasting near-white head. Body is clear and straw yellow with lot of carbonation. Aroma of dry pale malts and grain. Scents of raw and earthy hops. Medium sweet malt flavor with citrussy notes and mild bittering hops. Light-bodied with a rather watery texture. Dryish and spritzy finish. A decent and quenching macrolager.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Plastic bottle. Pours a golden yellow colour with hardly any head. Aroma of grains, bit sweet and some hops. Flavour of hops, malt and some sweetness. Short hoppy finish. My thanks to Ognjan.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled, drunk in Budva, Montenegro.
Bright yellow, with a bright shiny head that petered out quickly. Wet, stodgy cardboard aroma. No strength or quality of flavour, nasty finish on the palate. An unimpressive pale beer. The MB brand is quite well marketed here in Montenegro although the full selection has been elusive.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Serbian twist-off bottle --> should likely be worried. Clear dark straw color with a moderate white head. Fairly sterile looking. Hints of pale grains ala white bread behind a mild herb and flower bouquet. More bohemian in scent. Clean dry grains with a minty finish. Light pepper in the linger. Spicy and interesting. Laking in the malt sweetness and flavor, that would help balance things out a touch.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.65 L plastic bottle, ’bbe’ Dec 06. Opens with a timid ’sssst’. Laces rather well. Rubbery and slightly honey-ish aroma with some hops and diacetyl. Dry, tannic and edgy taste with a peppery harsh bitter aftertaste. Drying mouthfeel.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
clear golden-orange colour and a fast disappearing foam; discreetly herbal with notes of almonds; some tartness and a moderate malt body; moderately bitter and very dry finish; clean and short aftertaste - not bad at all

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2006 bouhgt it in switzerland in a 0.33 liter bottle in lucerne,in a food shop speciallicised on eastern european food and beverages.
rather large head,very white,but looks artificially, a bit like some soap-foam
light yellow color
first,just by opening a bit of sulphur
smell (smell of rotten eggs,that is growing less rather quickly,but a part of it remains!)
smells hoppy,malty,a bit sweetish,a bit metallic
really bitter in mouth(bitter but not very aromatic hops) you must keep it very long in mouth to find something other,somethiing a bit sweetish-sour?and some artificial seeming alcohol
aftertaste malty ,really bread like(almoust like eating a slice of bread), bitterness and alcohol
would be better without that strange back-ground-smell!!then it would taste like a really bitter,but boring lager.
bitterness in taste don’t fits to the bready aftertaste,is like having aftertaste from a totally different beer in mouth,only at the end of aftertaste,,bitterness rules again.
