COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ozujsko Pivo, a blond beer, is Croatia’s leading brand, dating from 1893. The selection of hops and barley gives Ozujsko (5.2% ABV) a refreshing taste and fine bitter aroma. It should be served at 3°C with compact foam.

Note: Dropped from 11.5° and 5.2% to 11° and 5.0% in late 2009/early 2010.

Golden yellow with a bit of a fizzy white head. Sweet aroma and grain and grass. Flavour is sweet and lightly grassy. Easy drinking and uncomplicated.

Den minder lidt om en helt almindelig Dansk Pilsner fra Fakta, men det sydlige udseende og det kroatiske flag gřr den spćndende og vćrd at smage. Desvćrre synes jeg personligt den er lidt for bitter, og den mangler noget smag..

TheJester (1866) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2008
500 mL can. Active and yellow gold with a small white head that gradually recedes to a film. Medium aroma is quite sweet, with some corn and earthy hops. Flavour is mild, and light on the hops. I really can’t even pick out the pilsner malt. Thin body is not dry enough. Having said all of this, it’s at least drinkable, which is more than I can say for most of the other beers I’ve tried from this part of the world.

Bottled.One of the best beer produced outside "standard" countries

Eructoblaster (2999) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2008
Can - 500ml. Boring golden body with average carbonation and a diminishing white bubbly head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with bready hints. Taste is fresh and well balanced, but it lacks complexity. Ends with a short bitter finish. Fair Euro-Lager.

DruncanVeasey (7160) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2008
Bottled. Vegetal nutty fizz on snout, joined by the merest rub of musty hop, lemon, grass. Whispers of citrus, conifer, cardboard. Solid bitterness and cornflake softness. Maybe I’m just pissed, but this seems like a half-decent Czech-style pivo with no glaring off-notes. Tap, Caffe Bar Smokvica, Trogir. Polite and biscuity, with a pleasingly woody snout almost like a hefe. There’s wheat or maize here, but a clean and refreshing lager.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - JUL 31, 2008
Pours a thin yellow with a foamy head that quickly disappears. The aroma is lightly grassy and bready. The flavour is light and bready with an uncomfortable herbal hoppy dry bitter finish. That taste at the finish may be for some, but not for me.

JesseM (1151) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2008
500mL can from the LCBO. Pours a nice gold with a large and frothy white head. I like Balkan beers for some reason, and this is another good one. Not much on aroma, but a great biscuity malt flavour backed up by a dry hoppy ending character makes it a tasty brew. A slight lemony aspect to it too, almost fruity in the afertaste. Sweet mostly, but very well balanced by the hops. Very well done IMHO, and I wouldn’t mind having a few more of these! (not tonight though, as I just donated blood) Not really much else I can say about this one. In summary, just a nice, good delicate Pils.

MrManning (2006) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2008
500 ml can from the LCBO- Pale gold pours a one finger froth of white fizz. Decent retention with some lace. Nose is quite grassy, with some straw and pale malts. There’s also an herbal, almost mild mint like aroma as well. Kinda reminds me of the locally brewed Brickman Pils in that respect.Tastes of sweet grainy pale malts, sweetgrass, some lemon, mild bitter hops come in at the end to provide some lingering hop presence. Tasty and quite light bodied despite the slightly higher gravity for a beer in this style. I wouldn’t be angry if I had to have this again.

500 ml can from the LCBO. pours nicely golden with a tight white head and steady carbonation. almost no aroma. the slightest trace of grassy hops eventually shows up. flavours are clean and crisp. not really very pilsnerish more of a pale lager but not a bad one. ok summer patio brew.
