2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Found in Montenegro. Bronze colour with gentle carbonation. The aroma is malt-forward with light hop. The taste is something approaching a helles, with a lot of clean pale malts, but with a hint of caramel as well. Not a bad beer, if a bit boring.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Side by side tasting. Croatian version from the bottle 500ml, and Serbian version from the can 500ml. Dark golden coloured, medium sized white head, light malty nose with hint of grass. Sweet malty, hoppy and light caramel taste with hint of spices. Moderate bitter finish. Ok brew but overall nothing special. There’s no significant difference between these two beers, Serbian version has higher level of carbonation and probably not so quality water.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle in Kotor, Montenegro. Dark gold with tight, dense, white head. Aroma is very clean, as are the flavors. The hopping is earthy, and peppery but dull, and the malts are straightforward, certainly not sweet, but unexciting. I like that it’s dry, and I like that the body is sturdy. It’s not swill. I have a feeling when this is fresh out of the brewing kettle, it is better. Uninspired but solid.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Side by side tasting of the Croatian and the Serbian version with ogivlado. Thanks to Hrvoje for bringing the Serbian "version" from Belgrade! Anyway, they both poured the same brownish-golden body with a white head. Quite nice looking. Sweet orangey malty nose, some dull floweriness, maybe a bit dusty. The Serbian version has just a tad more pronounced light caramel notes, and the rest is the same. The taste is sweetish, relatively pleasant and malty, maybe a touch yoghurty, a bit flowery. They taste almost the same, the differences being the slightly higher level of carbonation for the Serbian version, leaving a "harder" mouthfeel. Ok beer overall.
