Gurthnar (2136) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 6, 2014
Tap at the Brewpub. Aroma is mostly hoppy, citrusy and grassy. Mostly clear orange colour. Taste is again mostly hoppy. Pleasant moderate bitterness complemented by light fruity flavours. I like it. Easily drinkable, refreshing, really good.

Hazy ruby, offwhite medium-sized head. Light aroma, malts. Sweet malty backbone with strong saaz-hoppied palate. Hoppy aftertaste too.

heavy (2161) - Split, CROATIA - OCT 30, 2007
27/10 0.5 l draught with and after pizza. A bit murky reddish brown body with medium bigger ebony head. Aroma again is dominated by unpasteurized sourness, some hops, too. Flavor quite mild, hoppy, pleasantly bitter and sweet a bit. Very easily drinkable. Finish is short, follows the flavor, not bad. Something between Zlatni Medvjed and Crna Kraljica, but I really doubt it is half of each mixed. Not really much of schwartz character inside. Good one.

Nice to drink, refreshing and most important, it was a dark one, I just love the sweetness of the Southern Slavic beers, reminds me the Canadians.

tderoeck (5112) - Gent, BELGIUM - SEP 22, 2010
31/08/2010 - 30cl from tap @ Medvedgrad Adzijina

Note: this beer is a mixture of Zlatni Medvjed (+-70%) and Crna Kraljica (+-30%) and is mixed from trap in the glass. This means that the beer is never exactly the same.

A slightly clouded amber coloured beer with off-white rocky head, disappears quickly. A very prounounced yeast aroma with hints of caramel and hops. Mouthfeeling is round, full body. Taste is malty, a little hoppy, some caramel and spices like cumin. Aftertaste is fresh malty, not sweet. Some acidity.

Yes, this is definitely a mix of Crna Kraljica and Zlatni Medvjed. I loved the other "bear", but this wasn’t close. It looked good though, brown, thick persistant head that left tons of lacing (a legacy from the "queen" I guess), fizzy. It tasted exactly like one would expect it to taste. The "parent" beers are great in their own ways, but this isn’t as good. Faint hoppy aroma (Medvjed), hoppy taste (Medvjed), with some malty/liquorice hints (Kraljica), slightly bitter aftertaste (toned down version of the Zlatni Medvjed aftertaste). It’s well rounded, but, as I already said...twice, it’s not as good as the others.
