A very nice light golden pils with great clarity and a fizzy white head. Very crisp and refreshing the whole way though with spicy hops and a long dry finish.that is my beer,drinking every day

On draft in Ljubljana, Slovenia. If this Pils is the best Slovenia can do, I am going to Croatia. Well, actually I was on my way anyway. Not bad brew but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pudelek (319) - Gůrny Slůnsk / Oberschlesien, - JUN 18, 2016
Puszka 0,5, prezent. W aromacie to niewiele poza metalem. W smaku bardzo niedobre, wręcz paskudne: kwaśne, wykrzywia gębę, posmak metaliczny, nawet jak na lager to ciężko to wypić!

The local piss lager. Perfume aroma, maybe a hint of honey. A drinkable lager, but still piss ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Arek (927) - Zielona Góra & Wrocław, POLAND - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle 0.5 l, Astra, Wrocław, Poland.
Jasnozłote piwo o puszystej i gęstej pianie oraz przyjemnym, świeżym zapachu. W smaku lekkie i orzeźwiające z łagodną goryczką na finiszu.

Cthulhu (935) - MARSHALL ISLANDS - MAR 22, 2016
Slovenia must be the most boring country to drink beer in Europe. Perhaps I was looking in the wrong pubs and supermarkets but all I could find was this one and Lasko.Ordinary macro lager and Laslo is still better.

fiulijn (18577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle from Bier-Advent Kalender, Switzerland
Blond color, clean. Boring industrial dry Lager; the usage of unmalted barley creates a feeling of corn; ordinary bitterness.

Rating #1347 03.12.2014. 500mL Can #3 from the BeerAdvent Calendar (Costco). My 2nd slovenian tick, albeit reluctantly. Clear, goldy-yellow colour with a bubbly white foam, medium retention. Smell is metallic hops and grains. Taste is grainy, lightly hopped quiite smooth, with light carbonation. Not bad, but nothing to distinguish it among the plethora of "pilsner-esque challengers from Eastern Europe.
