Can. Thanks Ognjan. Pours a slightly hazish yellow colour with a big short lasting bubbly white head. Sweet aroma of grains. Sweet waterish flavour of grains corns and some maltish touch. Sweet rather uncomfortable aftertaste.

rlgk (10254) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2004
Light golden with an ok head. Sweet, malty aroma with some caramel and dark sugar. Hoppy, grassy flavor with sweet tones and some bitterness in the finish. I saw that this is the cheapeast croatian beer, I wish the cheapest swedish beers were as good...

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2008
It’s light golden with a small head. The aroma has a bit of acetone, but also a little malt. The flavour is slightly dry with a somewhat crude bitterness and light hints of malt. An odd one.

Marko (3904) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 17, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2005 New review: I’ve always felt that I was too biased whit his beer (because of what my friend said), so I decided to rerate it.

0.5l (green) can from Getro. It poured an enormous, fluffy but thick white head. It was quite fizzy, and of a pale yellow colour. Not promising. The nose was sourish, slightly metallic, yet somehow "fresh". The taste... well, it beats Osječko. It’s watery, sure, but everything but offensive. There’s a nice lemony hops touch and a mild hoppy aftertaste. Lacks malt (only some extremely faint traces). Easy drinking.


Old Review:Hmm, yes, this is the cheapest Croatian beer (but I think K plus comes close), and while this is certainly a lot less offensive than its Konzum counterpart, this isn’t anything special. Light golden colour, no head that I remember, watery, and bready taste. I tasted it because one of my friends said it was the worst beer he tried ever. While it’s not the worst, it’s far from good, and even from average.

heavy (2127) - Split, CROATIA - OCT 7, 2007
0.33 l can. Poured pale yellow body with tiny head. Aroma is slightly citrus hops and some weak malts. Bitterish flavor, not watery as I expected it to be, medium bodied. Quite lot of carbonation...finish is medium long, bitterish, just a bit dry. Good for a supermarket beer, but still boring average pale lager.
