Palme (4127) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 23, 2012
0.5l can from trade with ElDesmadre. This one pours a near-clear golden body, lots of unfiltered particles in this one, and it has a small white lager head. On the aroma it’s light malty and sweet, some vegetables (carrot) that has been boiled, watered down lemon zest, hints of dust and perhaps even some hints of sweet corn. Not horrible or anything, and well within the accepted-pilsner aroma-genre. It’s surprisingly OK tasting with a decent mouthfeel as well. Average carbonated with a nice oily texture. Malty and light sweet at first, but also a mild bitterness from the hops here. I was not expecting this at all, I mean a pale lager from Montenegro that actually tastes quite nice? By all mean pleasant surprise! 04.04.2012

badhack (519) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 18, 2012
Pours a clear pale straw, head that doesn’t last and light carbonation. It’s a very light beer and dry on the palate. Aroma is grass and malt. Flavor is malt, floral hops, and salt.

Can @ home. Thx Jasper! Aroma is grass, hay, some malt and hops. Flavour is watery malt, some hay. Meh.

Vaiz (4281) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2012
Can. Grainy with quite some hops. Pretty standard pilsener, but quite clean and easy drinkable.

visionthing (4800) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 25, 2012
Draught and bottle in Montenegro [JUN, 2008]. Golden colour with a white head. The usual pale lager, pretty drinkable, especially in the summer months. Not too sweet. OK lager.

greenclansman (905) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - FEB 6, 2012
Nothing more than a pale lager. Limited aromas and taste. Easy going, watery and not at all interesting. Nice for warm days and bbq

POLK (2219) - Hřrning, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2012
Clear pale golden color with a white fluffy head. Sweet aroma. Flavour is very typical Czech in style, and thats good :-).

500 mL bottle: Appearance is golden brown with minimal white head. Aroma is of stale malt. Flavor is a bearable maltiness with no off flavors.

Bottle
The only good thing I can say about this is that it was marginally better than the last beer. Even so, much like the Cantina, 80% of it went straight down the drain. Another country tick, there is really no good reason to choose this. Even the macros give you more bang for your buck.

Aroma / Appearance - This body has some life but the result looks like fizzy ginger ale instead of beer. A stark white head is far too excitable for the quality of the beer beneath. Wet leaves, grain, and soured lemons are as bland as it gets. Imagine any Eastern European pale lager and it could fit the bill.

Flavor / Palate - Lemon and grain are as bland and forgettable as it comes. Just a second after taking a sip it fades away. There aren’t any glaring flaws (like skunk, popcorn, or other off flavors). There is just nothing. This is like a black hole of good taste in the way it turns every sip into mediocrity.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Bottle (country tick). Pours with a pale yellow body with hardly any white head (vanishes quick). Aromas of wet and slightly burnt dog hair. Grainy, sweet adjunct, uric acid. Even a slight ester. All sorts of mistakes. Flavors are sweet, rotten fruit, corn, and then the magically fade to some oxidized paper and nothingness. Light metal as well. Very thin with medium to low carbonation. Characterless.
