From tap at the central Belgrade location. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is mild grassy and light cornish. Bitter, light butterish and cornish. Simple bitter and persisting cornish to butterish finish.

Draught at Black Turtle, Decanska 23, Belgrade. Hazy golden, small head. Grassy and fruity. Medium bodied and mid sweet with soft mouthfeel,. Slight winegum and grass, fairly low bitterness. Nicely drinkable with some interesting flavours. I like it.

Travlr (21440) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Draft at BT II. Cloudy yellow color. Aroma of orange peel and raw bread dough. Taste is bright citrus, rising bread. Good body. Tasty enough, but a bit strange for a pale lager.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 29, 2012
Slightly hazy dull straw. The aroma is fairly strong diacetyl with herbal hops, possibly saaz. The taste is more of that diacetyl with a hint of bitterness...just way too much butter.

gyllenbock (7771) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2014
On tap at Black Turtle Pub IV, May 2014. Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma and taste of grass, some corn and butter. Simple and with a low bitterness. Drinkable but nothing to write home about.

ogivlado (7215) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 12, 2015
On tap at The Black Turtle Pub IV - Prešernova Klet. Served in Jelen glass and a way too cold, pitty. Clear golden coloured, small white head, mild grassy nose. Moderate malty, grassy, brewing cereals and light herbal hoppy notes in the finish. Quite fresh brew.

Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2012
At Black Turtle 3. Slightly hazed gold with small lasting head. Aroma is apparently diacetyl with saaz, in a true working combination. Also light perfume and sweet yeast. The body is mainly doughy. The flavors are alright, its certainly not refined, and has some band aid, which i dont find too offensive. And the hop seems fresh. Flawed and funny but drinkable.

Marko (4948) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 27, 2010
Draught at the Black Turtle pub in Gospodar Jovanova. Hazy golden body with a big, thick white head that went away slowly, quite lovely. This had a sweaty herbal hoppy? nose, light soft malty body with the same wall of passionfruit, again from the hop, but without much bitterness. Didn’t think it was as drinkable as the other one. They share the same mistakes and some work is definitely needed.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2013 Draft at Black Turtle pub. This beer is tasting a lot better lately. I assume because they’ve updated the recipe, or at least their techniques. Most consistently good beer that they have, clean bite and flavor. Hoppier now too. (Original Rating from 2011: 2.0, Metallic, sour mess. Almost no head, honey and clear. Creamy body, sour mashing. bit of bitter alc bite, but otherwise very plain. )

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 7, 2012
The head is ok, the body light brown-yellow. The taste is barley, malty, hoppy. Overall nothing special but ok. 11/9/10/10/-/10
