hrabren (706) - Zagreb, - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle, 0.5 l, 7.5% abv, gift from Medvedgrad Brewpub. Thanks! Pours nice orange-yellow color with average, frothy, off-white head. Hints of acid in the smell, like sauerkraut, maybe some corn. Well balanced hoppy bitterness and malty sweetness with some pine in the aroma. Medium body, average carbonation, malty finish. Sincerely recommended.

klukas (29) - Rijeka, CROATIA - JUN 6, 2016
Enjoyed: poured from a bottle into a mug. Rich but short-living foam. Blury red, brownish colour (unfiltered). Pleasant taste, easy, drinkable, low carbonation. Though it has a lot of alcohol, it’s hard to taste it or smell it. In the beginning it’s very aromatic/fragrant, but later intensity is lost. Nice labels, both old and new.

nephirem (138) - CROATIA - MAR 5, 2016
Pours hazy dark amber color with medium and creamy slightly off-white head. Lovely smell of caramel and toffee. Full body with medium carbonation. Smooth and oily texture. Taste is bittersweet, with bitterness present mostly in the aftertaste, probably due to alcohol. Aroma of toffee, caramel, bread, biscuits. Very rich and tasty. Overall, loved it. This was sampled from the new 0.33l bottle and it feels like an improvement over the old 0.5l Grička. Excellent.
