hrabren (389) - Zagreb, - JAN 12, 2013
This beer was known as one of the first Croatian microbrewery products, produced in a small brewery in a town of Pazarište, near Gospić in Croatian mountain region, famous for its clear spring water, which is also used in production of this brew. It was considered as one of the best Croatian beers, due to the fact it wasn’t pasteurized and produced in small amounts, being also rare and hard to find until fairly recently. Quality of this beer fell with use of additives for preservation so now it tastes more similar to macro Dunkels. Nevertheless, it is still good. I’ve had it many times since 2005, but I’m only rating it now. Pours dark brown with orange tint and quickly diminishing beige head. Weak aroma of malts and nuts, you won’t notice it if the beer is to cold. Medium body, but a full malty taste, not many hops here, low carbonation, well balanced. Ends with a dry finish. Highly recommended.

flying_pig (1251) - SCOTLAND - SEP 7, 2015
500ml bottle from Spar, Zagreb (7.99 kuna):
This one was a very nice dark lager, there was a good roasted malt taste & plenty of sweetness throughout as well as some nice bitterness to help balance things out. The beer had plenty of flavour but thankfully didn’t overpower & it was easy to drink, part of the reason I picked it up more than once whilst in Croatia.

Dark brown color, medium size and long lasting brown head. Malty and caramel aroma, but little light. Sweet aftertaste. Not bad, I remember it different.
