Kita (1913) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 26, 2011
Canned, 0.5l. Pours clear golden with medium sized frothy white head. Not very pleasant aroma of wine marc. Sweet malty taste with mild grassy hops at finish. Light bodied with thin texture and average carbonation in palate. Slightly plain mouthfeel as expected for mass produced Slovenian lager. On the other side, refreshing and drinkable.

Kristall-König (2726) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2011
Union - diesmal nicht aus Dortmund, sondern aus Slowenien. Im Geruch überwiegend hopfig mit einigen Malzflocken. Der geschmack präsentiert sich ordentlich herb mit leichten Fruchtnoten. Das herbe Niveau wird ganz gut gehlaten. Im Abgang zunehmend bitterer. Soweit ok und trinkbar. Test vom 9.2.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUL 18, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2014 Bottle. Golden with a frothy head of modest sustain. Weak aroma, watery taste, mainly malty, low on hop bitterness but high on the presence of metallic aromas. But it’s still ok and quite refreshing. Re-rate: the metallic aromas seem to have been dealt with. It has a slightly stronger bitterness than its macrolager counterparts. Decent for what it is,

Martinus (4537) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2011
Light golden colour, white head. Rather standard lager. Malty, but sweet. No real hop bitterness. OK for quenching thirst if you happen to be in Slovenia. (Draught in a pub in Ljubljana, Slovenia)

Koelschtrinker (17704) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 3, 2011
Sehr sehr milder und weicher Getreideantrunk. Positiv ist, dass das Bier trotz der Milde nie wässrig ist, die Aromen sind aber sehr beschränkt, Außer dem Getreide kommt noch die Herbe, weniger ein Hopfenaroma zum Tragen. Das Bier ist in Teilen etwas muffig. Dies ist in soweit relevant, als dass es einen bei solch einem Bier wichtigen Punkt zerstört: Die Süffigkeit bzw. den Erfrischungsgrad. So ist das Bier ein trinkbares Helles, weitab von Besonderheiten. 7/6/7/6/5/6
