2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
One of the most famous Slovenian beers, the other one being Zlatorog, brewed in the capitol city, Ljubljana. I never liked Slovenian macro lagers, but I have to give this beer at least some credit for not being exactly awful. Pale in color with thin white head that disappears almost instantly. Aroma of grains and cereal, quite hoppy. Thin body, carbonated, no finish. The only good thing about this beer is that it has some aroma, and some nice bitterness from hops, other than that it is as bad south European lager as any.

golden colour, notable white head; nothing special in the aroma, some corny sweetness and significant hoppy aftertaste (which is quite positive); nothing extra, but OK lager

500ml can. Pours large white head. Colour is pale gold. Aroma of lemon and some winey notes. Taste is dry and crisp with medium sweetness and light maltiness. Some lychee and exotic fruit in the aftertaste. A run of the mill, standard lager.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml can, as Union Svetlo Pivo, shared by abemorsten. ABV is 4.9%. Golden colour, moderate white head. Dusty and grainy aroma, hints of over-cooked vegetables and wet cardboard. Soft mouthfeel. The flavour is moderately malty without any off-flavours, very moderate but noticeable hops. Easy drinking, must be an acceptable refreshment on a Slovenian beach.
