500ml bottle in Fetiche, Ljubljana (€3.00):
This was a really basic effort from Union, I was quite disappointed really since this is one of the most widely available beers in the country but it didn’t do much for me sadly. There was some basic adjuncts & corn, a faint sweetness & not much else really; it’s not one that I’ll seek out again I don’t think.

Derek881 (1175) - Kiev, UKRAINE - SEP 4, 2015
Had a couple cans of this beer while in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The beer had a standard gold-straw color with an average foamy white head with modest retention, cling, and lacing. The aroma was an underdeveloped blend of grainy and some earthy hops with a bit of corn and mash. The beer was modestly bitter and grainy with light touches of malt. A fairly lighter, thinner mouthfeel, a touch on the dry side, with mild carbonation.

paulvanpelt (408) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2015
Bleek, witte kraag. Weinig duidelijk aroma. Wat gist en gras. Licht bitter, lekker fris in de mond. Prima voor een pils.

slawek (253) - Kraków, POLAND - AUG 5, 2015
Green bottle 0,66l. Yellow, clear, no head. Aroma: Skunky with some corn. Flavor: Some bitterness, bit grainy. Drinkable, refreshing. Pretty good for nothing beer, but green bottle destroys the effect.

This ain’t a great beer but it was fucking hot 37 Celsius when we were in Ljubljana and it was thirst quenching and quaffable.
