2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Štajerc brewpub. Pours a clear emerald green color, topped with a decent and quite lasting white head. Aroma is almost non-existant; there are just some mild bready notes. Taste starts slightly sweet, a bit bready with mild bitterness in the finish. Slightly metallic aftertaste, but still easily drinkable and fresh. Nothing special, but nice.

2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Green colour with tiny white head. Unbealivable but almost without aroma. Taste is sweet with floral notes and dry little hoppy finish. Medium body, soft carbonation and medium bitterness. Interesting but not superlative.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Deep green/emerald body, white head. Aroma and taste of grains, bread, earthy and floral hops. I guess it’s the same brew as their pils, but with a different color. It’s an OK beer with a quite suprising color. My first green beer ever.

This beer is basically the same as their svetlo. I can not discern any difference except the colour.

<!-- b -->Why green? Green beer gets its colour by adding emulsion of hop in already made Štajerc Svetlo<!-- /b -->

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 0.5l from a 3l bottle ozujsko got from Slovenia (thanks to him, yet again).
When ozujsko called me to try these, he mentioned that I should really come and check out one of them. He kept any info about it from me, to surprise me. And man, was I surprised. This poured a beautiful emerald green colour. Yes, green colour. Beautiful too. And no, it’s not from food colouring (another surprise), it’s achieved through...err..... I forgot. Something about young hops and emulsion. I’ll let ozujsko explain it. All in all, I guess the green is from chlorophyll. Now that’s a first. Glad to see at least one brewpub around these and those parts not going for the "unfiltered pale / unfiltered dark / mix of those two / and if you’re REALLY lucky a wheat" approach. Anyway, back to the beer. It was apparently better fresh, but this was ok like this too. Almost no traces of the head (maybe some white remains), but this beauty didn’t need it. The green looks just so damn perfect. The nose... hmm... some grass and a touch of malt. Nothing too special. The taste is a bit grainy/bready and hoppy, a bit grassy (in a positive way) and lemony, with a long bitter aftertaste. Like the dark, this is a bit watery, but pleasant. From what I’ve heard, it was a lot better fresh, with the hops running the show nicely, and I hope to try this again.
