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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A night out almost always includes a beer, this time Union.
It comes with a clear, golden color and a semi-generous white head that settles down relatively fast. The aroma is mostly grainy and malty, perhaps slight smell of hops (although somewhat dusty). The taste is nothing special: sweet at first, followed by a grainy body and finishing with a nicely bitter finish. But don’t let it stay out too long, because if not ice cold, the bitterness becomes slightly unpleasant. A nice, average beer for everyday’s drink.

0.33l can from trade with Misow. Yeah, no big surprises on the looks here. It’s clear, crystal clear actually with some lager unfiltered particles floating and a big white lager head. Sweet and corn infused on the lagerish nose. It does not smell bad at all, but I have to say that there is not much originality put in to this. Corn and a little sour hint in the background. Let’s taste it! Hmm.. Yeah, no resistance there what so ever. Again an example of a brewer that unfortunately hop doses his batches with a tea spoon instead of a bucket. Well, it’s not a bad lager at all, but my oh my it’s so dull and boring! 30.08.2013

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl glass bottle. Thanks to kevnic2008.
The beer is bright golden in the glass, nice malty nose. The beer starts mild, not too hoppy. Highly drinkable. The main part has a bit more flavour, nice malts, not too bitter, typical for a pale lager. The aftertaste is medium, a slightly bit malty-grainy, slightly hoppy.
--> typical and good pale lager --> 12/12/11/12

Overall just another light larger, not much to add. Watery I’m afraid, no mega characteristics.
