2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Dark brown, almost black. Loose light brown head which dissipates quickly with little trace. Aroma is malt and dark syrup dominated, medium strong.
Taste is light, almost lemony from the start. This changes into a light fruity bit malty flavor with an alcoholic tone. Basically no to low carbonation. No aftertaste, but theres a bitterish oily film left in your mouth.
Definetly more character than your generic lager typical of this area, but I cant recommend this nevertheless.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’m reviewing this beer on memory from a trip to Croatia, since I had never heard of RateBeer.com when I was there. I clearly recall that it was the best beer I had in country and I tried many. In fact, it was so good that I brought some home to Moscow with me (where I was working at the time) and shared it with a beer-loving friend, who shared my enthusiasm. I remember the alluring malty aroma and dark pour and the very hearty flavor. Basically, I recall it as a very satisfying ex-beer-ience and I recommend it to you! I wish I could find some in the US.

Bottled, 0.50l. Clear dark brown color with large creamy brownish head and lively bubbles. Aroma of caramel, coffee, dry fruits and with light smoky notes. Taste starts with full and rich roasted barley malt, while followed by sweet fruitiness, coffee, caramel and light alcohol warmth. Finish is decently bitter. Full body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. For now the best Croatian beer...

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
18.10.12(Flasche):dunkelbraun, cremefarbener Schaum. Sehr malzaromatisch, Lakritze und Trockenfrüchte. Der Geschmack ist leicht leer. Im Hintergrund ist es sehr malzig aber leider auch sehr eisenartig. Ziemlich rezent. Habs in kroatischer Sonne mit geilem Meer besser, macht wohl wieder mal das Feeling.
