1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden colour, uninspirinig, slightly offness to the finish and lacking in character. Surprised by its comparitively high rating here.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml. Heavier maltbase version of the popular Niksicko. Frankly I’d prefer to spend less and have the friendlier original. This is stronger in flavor but at the cost of a heavy, rich mouthfeel that does not befit a beer of this caliber. Very metallic, grassy and honey. Syrupy as can be for a normal pilsener. Not worth effort.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.33l (ugly) bottle courtesy of and shared with heavy (thanks!)
Poured a yellow-golden thick medium sized white head that went away at a medium pace. Slightly dusty hop nose, light sulphur and cabbage. Sweet candyish taste (reminiscent of Cool) but this time lighter and surrounded by some oily, dusty hopiness. Ok beer, nothing more than that.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml bottle at Tivat Airport, Montenegro. Thin, white layer on the top of a straw coloured body. Plain mild malty aroma followed by a satisfying sweet malty taste with a touch of herbal hops towards the ending. Smooth and thirst-quenching there and then (30.08.2008).

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to jjpm74. Pours a clear golden body with a medium white head that quickly goes down. The aroma is lots of sweet malt, some butterscotch and apple. The flavor is nice; tons of sweet fruity flavors, a crisp malt, some sweet butter, straw, and overall a smooth and very easy to drink beer. Not bad at all. Thanks John for a nice brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
01/10 0.33 l bottle. Poured nice golden body with tiny head. A bit buttery and sourish hops accent in the aroma, nice. Flavor very pleasant, bit bitter like a Pilsener should be. Quite full bodied beer. Long, dry and bitterish finish. Very good one, nice relaxation of those bad Bosnian beers. Also a surprise as ordinary Niksicko wasn’t nearly as good for me.
