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.

500ml bottle in Fetiche, Ljubljana (€3.00):
This was a really basic effort from Union, I was quite disappointed really since this is one of the most widely available beers in the country but it didn’t do much for me sadly. There was some basic adjuncts & corn, a faint sweetness & not much else really; it’s not one that I’ll seek out again I don’t think.

Had a couple cans of this beer while in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The beer had a standard gold-straw color with an average foamy white head with modest retention, cling, and lacing. The aroma was an underdeveloped blend of grainy and some earthy hops with a bit of corn and mash. The beer was modestly bitter and grainy with light touches of malt. A fairly lighter, thinner mouthfeel, a touch on the dry side, with mild carbonation.

Bleek, witte kraag. Weinig duidelijk aroma. Wat gist en gras. Licht bitter, lekker fris in de mond. Prima voor een pils.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Green bottle 0,66l. Yellow, clear, no head.
Aroma: Skunky with some corn.
Flavor: Some bitterness, bit grainy.
Drinkable, refreshing. Pretty good for nothing beer, but green bottle destroys the effect.

This ain’t a great beer but it was fucking hot 37 Celsius when we were in Ljubljana and it was thirst quenching and quaffable.
