1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle in Mostar. It’s hard to find--it was available at a super restaurant called Hameli Han (or something similar). The gold is fairly rich. But its got no head. Smells like standard macrobrew graininess. Isnt sour and has no overt problems except for the lack of hops and general boringness.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
0.5 l bottle thanks to lutonm for bringing two of them to Zagreb! It poured pale yellow body with medium to bigger head. Weaker funky aroma, hay, grains, slightly eggy. Flavor was somewhat sour, seems to contain corn no matter what label says, herbal hops were in here but not much. Thin in body with shorter, only little acidic and watery finish. Not utterly bad, but not really good, somehow, I expected more.

Bottled 500ml. -Courtesy of luttonm, shared with him and Marko. Very nice label. Pale golden coloured, small to medium sized white head, whiff of cereals in the nose. Slight acidic malty, cereals and light herbal with bitterish/acidic finish. Not so good and boring lager.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle in Mostar. Golden colour with big bubbles. The aroma is a little grainy, maybe with alcohol off-notes. Full-bodied, with lots of malt and a gentle hop note. Actually not a bad macro.

Bottle, brought from a friend of luttonm’s from Mostar to Sarajevo, then by Matt to Zagreb. Yay, thanks! Poured a golden body with a small white head. Eggy nose. Slightly creamy and herbal bitterish malty taste. Just another random lager.
