1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
One of the worst croatian beers. Almost like chinese beers but without that much rice flavour. Overall quite poor hop grassy taste with some slight sweet notes. Corny. Medium bitterness. Moderate carbonation. Not pleasant bitterish aftertaste.
And a poor label design.

500ml bottle - thanks Marduk and friends! (2:2-:2:2:5=1.3-)
I can smell this a metre away. Nasty limey fake aroma hops. Corny too about 20 cm away. Closer, there’s plastic and even somehting rubbery. Exceedingly watery. Carbonation doesn’t help. Starch, cardboard, paper glue. Some sweetness, but not caramell or sugar, if you take a big gulp. Ugh chemical acrid dusty finish. This is an utter abomination. Extremely pale.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
500ml bottle (thanks Pitsu & co). Pale yellow color. Medium size, white head, stays. Rotten vegetables, hop extract, sweet, corny in aroma. Stench is stronger than Xymelin. Should have used that to cure my running nose. Starchy, cardboard, malty, sweet, artificial hops in taste. Bloody Hell! People actually drink that?! Not good not good at all. Never again!

Bottle from Konzum supermarket in Bol, Brac. What a waist of time producing this beer. The question is why. The Croatian marketing already has a bunch of pale lagers so why this watery and soooooo boring? Leave this one, talk a walk to Ivana Trgovina in Split, if nearby, and find some interesting micros that starts to show up in Croatia. This one is just for your bladder.

Cheap beer with bad taste and bad appearance. Undefined taste. Not for recommendation.

Medium foam, but it fade too fast. Clear yellow color. Although this is average lager there is no bitterness. But it doesn’t feel water-like.

Couldn’t taste the beer because of very strong carbonation. It eroded my stomach. Don’t want drink it again.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2014 (Aroma 1; App 1; Taste 1; Palate 1; Overall 2
Clear yellow with fast disappearing white head. Sour and metallic smell. Taste is the same. Long very sour finish. Undrinkable. Won’t buy it again. Ever.

Guess what, I did buy it again; new label = new taste. Slightly better taste, or should I say less disgusting taste? Still extremely carbonated. Other than that, it’s not that sour and metallic as it used to be. Now it is more watery, which is good in this case. Because regular water is better than awful sour sewer water, isn’t it?
