Smell ia very aromatic. Pleasant sweet with a touch of koriander. Pours with medium head, very nice golden colour. Taste is very good. Low carbonation and a full lasting sweet sensation. A very very good Slovenian beer!

pitch992 (115) - SLOVENIA - JUN 1, 2016
On tap at st.patricks pub lj. Aroma: gentle tropical fruits, some gentle grass, floral, some caramel. Quite low aromatics really, but nicely balanced. Appearance: pale, golden, clear, white head with ok retention. Taste: similar to aroma, bitterness in the low medium levels. Pleasant, but a bit low malty backbone. light body, a bit thin,average carbonation, medium finish that is slightly sweet slightly bitter with a gentle dryness. Overall: pleasant, drinkable but nothing really exceptional.
