3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sehr milder Getreideantrunk, hell. Trotz der Milde ist hier betonenswert, dass das Bier nicht wässrig ist. Ganz leicht herb, erfrischend. Es geht mit wenig Änderungen weiter, die helle Getreidigkeit ist weiter führend, auch wenn ein milder aber durchaus ausdrucksvoller Hopfenton auftaucht. Im Abgang dann doch noch wässrig, spät etwas hopfig herb. Mildes aber gelungenes Helles.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can be hard to find locally in Belgrade, but was the standard at my local. Spicier malt blend, sharper hops maybe but more cutting overall to local lagers. Funky sharp nose and sip were interesting starts to a spineless lager body. Not bad, some intentions here perhaps.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pale golden with small white head. Light grain and weak hop notes. Flavour is the same. Mild bitterness. Fizzy finish. Nothing exciting.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
2L PET and can. Pale yellow color. Grainy aroma. Grainy flavor, maybe over-pasteurized. Nothing for interest.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle shared by KnutAlbert. Coarse white head, mostly diminishing. Body is brilliant pale yellow. Sugary grains and nothing else in the aroma. Taste is rubbery and unfresh sweet. Notes of stale bittering hops. Watery. Sharp metallic finnish. Poor stuff.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Some flowery hops. Sweet malt, some perfume, thin and watery. A very boring beer.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
330 ml bottle. Very pale golden. Tall white fine-laced head that clings to the glass. Papery and with a sweet sugary aroma. Smooth texture. Fairly low carbonation. A little unbalanced and artificial. Little, if any, bitterness.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.5 l can from a store in Herceg Novi, Montenegro. It had pale yellow body with medium sized, ugly industrial frothy head that went down slowly. Smells artificial as well, it’s malty reminding flowers with notes of fake honey. Flavor isn’t nice, too...an initial touch of cardboard turns into some better flavors like sweet malt. Some undefined sourness, besides just a bit lemony hops here, as well as in the finish. Medium bodied and very simple brew. Notes of metallicity in its finish. Didn’t like it, it was just a boring pale lager, however, it was strange to see how it was getting better with every sip.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Well, hate to be the odd man out here; but so far, I’m not picking up much in the bitter department. Course, I’ve been munching on some a the local cheese, smoked meat, fresh bread, and onions. Any way, the best part was the big, foamy, frothy, sudsy head and lace. The aroma was slightly sweet, grainy, and a bit beery. Light yellow color. Flavor was bland and a bit sweet. Some body. A few locals told me that it’s not bad, but not one of the best. This review is based upon this, my first sample only from a can bought last night at Maxi mart. It’s ok. Forgettable.
