3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear amber with huge fluffy white head that stays there forever! Mostly hoppy and fruity but malty in the background, with the aroma of sugar being caramelised on lemon and fresh orange juice. Also some pine and grass. Medium bodied and not that good balanced. Bitterness is a bit rough. I don’t mind heavy bitterness but this one is just not that nicely bitter. I have to say the bottle was a bit old so maybe that was the issue.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
At the Loop Hotel with Hrabren, visnja666v and Goran (thanks guys!).
Murky dark yellow body. Distinctly lemony aroma, slightly malty, but basically, somehow, like lemon juice with the acidity removed. Actually kinda nice and different. Nice, light peppery taste, mild soft malty background, again light lemon, soapy notes though. Fine but subdued... Low to mid bitterness, like hell this is 40 IBU. Might have been once, perhaps, but this was more like 25... OK, nice in a way, but all 3 Croatian commercial APAs are better so no, I won’t be trying it again any time soon.
