Warning! Early amateur rating! Bottle in Ljubljana. A straight down the line lager with a long dry hoppy finish. Okay.

Eructoblaster (3640) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2010
On tap et Pivnica Trnovski Zvon (Ljubljana, Slovenia). Limpid golden body with a thin white foamy head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma. Its hoppy taste is boring but not too bad. Ends with a short bitter/herbal finish. Decent East European Lager.

inbirraveritas (1444) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 27, 2009
0.5 l can from Ljubljana. Golden colour, lively sparkling, quickly collapseing foam. Sweet-sourish, grainy nose, sweet taste, medium body. Flavour’s grainy and sweet, finish’s hoppy and tiny dry, sourish. Nothing special, but a good drinkable and pleasant lager, especially in the summer.

armando629 (2455) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 25, 2009
0,5 l can, bought at Auchan, Budaörs.
Poured clear golden with a smalllacing white head. Aroma of bready malt, sourish, typical bottom-fermentation yeast, minimal hop. Medium bodied one with a mild malt based flavor, some sourish yeast, light hop in the finish. Average one..

Jasa (6) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - NOV 20, 2009 does not count
Bland european lager. Chrispy, fresh, some malt flavor, nothing remakable though, can be skunky in bottles and stale on draught. Go for a draught in one of the bigger pubs in Ljubljana.

Muggus69 (1901) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 9, 2009
500mL bottle, Ljubljana, Slovenia Standard Euro-style lager, probably expecting more from my first Slovenian beer, but quite a clean balanced and drinkable beer with subdued hop character.

3fourths (8982) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2009
can at the nova gorica train station. nose and flavor of sour grains, medium to low sweetness, more metallic with a soggy grain/stale bread character... tastes like old malt extract syrup. syrupy texture, medium to thin body. weak carbonation.
