1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Even in Niš this is hard to come by. Dull light amber with no head. The aroma is plastic, maybe some diacetyl. The taste is watery, light caramel, light graininess. But too many phenols in the finish.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle, acquired with difficulty in Nis...smells dreadful. A chemical sludge of massive proportion, obscuring any possibility that there is a heart of beer in here at all. Acrid finish. You name it, it’s wrong with it. Phenols, butter, sourness. This is putrid. I can’t believe we spent 40 minutes of our day trying to track one of these down. No wonder no one in Nis carries this crap!

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled 500ml. -Courtesy of Marko (thanks!), shared with heavy and him.
Yellow coloured, small white head, dusty bready corny nose. Light odd meaty and bready taste with sweetish watery finish. Nothing special here.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
20/08 0.5 l bottle a friend gave to Marko, thanks to both of them! It poured yellow body below smaller head. Weaker grainy and honey/flowery malt aroma. Sweetish flavor of cornmeal with some sugary sauce, touch of herbal hops. Thinner body, watery finish. Utterly strange, kind of boring, yet interesting and possibly easily drinkable.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
0.5l bottle brought from Niš by a friend (huge thanks Milan!)
POured a shiny yellow-golden body with a tiny white head. Light odd sweetish nose Empty, odd sweetish malty taste, light bitterness. Definitely... different, but we couldn’t exactly place what it was. Again, strange, but harmless.
