Koelschtrinker (9999) - 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

Average Slovenian beer. Nothing really special but anyway for it’s price, it is not that bad :). Good especially in hot summers.

kappldav123 (4700) - GERMANY - FEB 2, 2011
0,5l can - thanks to ogivlado for this one! Can looks very simple, beer in the glass very zippy, small head. Starts mild, fruity like lemon, hoppy background, not too dry. Finish still mild, modest sweet, quite drinkable. Surprisingly good!

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

Eructoblaster (2949) - 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.

Embrouille (2819) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 23, 2010
Canned 33cl. Courtesy of ogivlado. A lot of boiled milk throughout. Watery and slightly sour. Not good. Thanks ogivlado!
