COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Note (important!): Despite the generic name, this was an occasional release from the brewery, different from the regular Union Pivo and apparently ONLY in 0.5l plastic bottles, in the early 00s. If you think that you’ve had it recently, recheck what you’re having and see other entries from this brewery.

I believe I sampled this on tap at Bailey’s Pub, Ljubljana. Pretty good and had a certain freshness in the fizzy, peppered mouthfeel. Refreshing Lager.

Pale orange-yellow. Firm head. Toasted malt aroma with hoppy tones. Flavour of diluted tea. Velvety.
