Pours dark ruby, almost black colour with medium, creamy beige head. Smell of roasted malts, yeast. Subtle chocolate presence. Medium body with average carbonation. Smooth texture. Taste is nicely balanced, slightly bitter. Aroma of roasted malts and yeast with toffee and caramel present in the aftertaste. Finish is short and mostly dry. Overall, pretty good and refreshing. I’m definitely picking this one up again.

500ml bottle from Billa supermarket, Zagreb (11.99 kuna):
Quite a nice dark style lager with plenty of caramel malts & nice, darker malts & fruits in there that keep things balanced & interesting. There was a pleasant hint of coffee to proceedings & I was surprised at how easy it was to drink with help from the creamy palate. Definitely one well worth seeking out if you ever find yourself in the north of Croatia & one I’m glad I stumbled across.
