3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in the hotel room in Bologne. Breakfast beer! Pours clear, yellow-gold with a weak, foamy white head. Pretty standard aroma, light cereal, metal, faint grass. Light sweet flavor with some grainy cereal, sugar, wet hay, grass. Light bitterness. Light bodied with fine, fizzy carbonation. Sweet, crisp finish, mild metal bite, faint caramel, light grassy bitterness and a bit more cereal. A very decent pale lager.

International Green Week, Berlin 2012: Hall 18 is a real mix of nations (Gambia, Ghana, South Africa, Spain, Peru, Malta, Thailand, Belgium and Holland to name but some) we find a tall standing table by a Belgian bar and leave the women folk to keep the space while we men bomb burst to find something to drink. I got the wife a South African sparkling wine and I noticed a small area dedicated to Slovenia and came back with a 0.3 litre glass of this beer. The other blokes just hit the Belgian selection (all of which I’d had before) for themselves and their ladies, food and drinks were available from all sorts of countries if they’d looked hard enough.
My beer could have been a lager/pilsner/helles from almost anywhere: it had the regular golden, clean looks, snowy white head and no smell. The taste was thin, some hop bite, but very little of anything worthy of note, most likely the worst beer I had during the whole day (although the Russian lager I had was pretty poor too. So this is just a run of the mill, bog standard pilsner, a pity because it is the only thing I’ve ever had from Slovenia that I know of, and it hasn’t left a great impression on me.

Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Schöne leicht dunkelgelbe Farbe, grobporiger, jedoch stabiler Schaum. Der Geruch ist leicht süßlich und hopfig. Der Antrunk ist genau das Gegenteil: malzig und würzig. Schmeckt auf jeden Fall mal sehr lecker! Zum Mittelteil wird’s etwas hopfiger. Einziger Nachteil des Bieres: Es ist nicht allzu süffig. Aber ansonsten ein durchaus gut trinkbares, vollmundiges würziges Lager!

.5l Can, another old timer that I haven’t rated yet for some reason, bought at Super Vero in Belgrade. Rich yellow lager pour, minimal head, perfume and something like alc. deadened flavors but quite respectable macro for these parts. Would enjoy trying in bulk instead of the normal availabilities to see how that balanced out. Tastier and more appealing than most
