Bottle 0.5l. Hazy yellow color with huge head. Nice sweetish and fruity aroma with dry finish. Really a beer that you can enjoy in it.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaska @ Konoba Korta, Split. Guldfärgad öl med ett stort skum som vore det vispad äggvita. Det doftar inte mycket, men där finns en pepprighet och örtighet och en citronsurhet som känns fräsch. Samma återfinns i smaken. Väldigt trevlig beska som gör detta till en drickvänlig pilsner.

Excellent natural non filtered blonde beer. Drunk at trilogija in Zagreb. One of best and most original Croatian beers drunk.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 0,50L. Slightly hazy, golden colour with lively visible carbonation. Huge head comes out right after I start to sip it in the glass and it sits a little, but stays there until the end. Malty aroma of straw and hay, hoppy citruses and some yeasts. Taste is a bit acidic for two or three seconds at the start, but quickly turns into moderate bitter. Body is medium to full, with dry texture. Many thanks to Kita for this one.

From bottle in to "proper" glass at Magic Beer Room in Zagreb. Gushing head, light hazy unfiltered yellow. Sweet yeastiness, big bottle refermentation. Odd setup, dry body yeast, faint grain. Lager topped up to resemble Duvel with yeasty sweetness and huge head. not amazing, quite sticky, but interesting.

Bottled 500ml. -Courtesy of and shared with Marko (thanks!). Hazy yellow/golden coloured, small to medium sized white head, grassy hoppy nose. Malty, grassy hoppy and mild fruity with slightly too watery finish. Pleasant but could be even better.

First off, huge thanks to the one and only Milić for bringing this all the was from Buje (yaaay!). This is a new setup -> the guys brewing it don’t have a web page, not even an e-mail address, and they just serve this in a pub in Buje and a pub in Rovinj if I’m not mistaken. What they apparently have is, however, special glasses and a special pouring ritual, which is quite cute, but... hm. The beer comes in former fliptop bottles that just got a regular cap on top of them. Which is cute again. Well, all that aside, it’s brilliant to try a new beer from a new Croatian micro. An unfiltered lager refermented in the bottle. But is it any good?
Yeah, better than the competition. Poured a misty yellow-golden body, seems overcarbonated (wonder how it would’ve ended up without refermentation), fizzy even, the head was gone fast though. Hm. Watermelon, melon, slick maltiness in the fresh aroma. The taste is however quite dry, slightly overatennuated, bitter, ashy, papery, with very light lemon. All in all, not a bad beer at all, you can see a touch of craft that just about everything available in said area lacks, so it’s a plus, and I’d be glad to see a wider release of that, without the seemingly excessive price maybe, but still... Worth trying, but unfortunately, due to price and distribution restraints, it’ll take awhile before it becomes anyone’s go-to beer.

the best croatian beer. 100 % natural. Easy to drink. Not pasteutized beer, unfiltered and re-fermented in the bottle.
