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 with compact white head. Almost without aroma, you can smell hops. Carbonation is evident, also lightly bitterness. Hard drinkable.

Pours a clear golden body with a thin head. Faint hoppy aroma. Boring taste with a little bitterness at the end.

Rob_D_UK (1149) - Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2014
Pours a clear golden colour with a fast falling white head. Light honey maltiness up front with a faint hop finish. Mildly crisp, nothing offensive, but nothing that stands out as a nice lager.

On draught somewhere in the Soca Valley. Looks like nothing, smells like very little, tastes of not much. Like a plain white room. Useless review as I only like reviewing good beers.

Pindoc (120) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 8, 2014
Der Schaum ist weiss und kompackt. Das Bier ist klar und hat eine goldgelbe Farbe. Ein Hopfenduft steigt in die Nase. Der erste Schluck fliesst leicht bitter und samt weich die Kehle hinunter. Der Abgang und Nachhall sind ebenfalls leicht bitter. Ein ordentlich gutes Bier.
