I found this crusty but fresh bottle at Discount Liquor in Milwaukee, it was only 1.29 so i said what the heck. I’m assuming the name of it is Bg, but I couldn’t find it elsewhere on the site, and I know this is the correct brewery.
Pours a pale yellow, the head is bright white and isn’t as long lasting as most, but it leaves some decent lacing.
This product comes in a green bottle, and it is not skunked thankfully. The smell is generic Euro pale fare, with a good bit of malt and a small kick of medicine like hops.
THe mouthfeel seems a tad bit thin, but the beer isn’t too bad, jsut typical Eastern Euro pale lager. It was better than other Balkan green bottled pale lagers I have had.
It is something I would grab if I was on vacation during summer in Serbia. It is nothing bad, nothing really good, just a standard highly drinkable Euro pale lager.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2011 1L bottle, I’ve seen this popping up around Belgrade more and more. A shame, its knocking slightly better beers off the shelves. Off-yellow, wattery pour with minimal foam head. Nose is sour-bitter malts, taste is chemical, metal bitter. And bad sour. There is a lot better out there in town. ganache (5903) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 13, 2010
Green-glassed bottle. Heavily carbonated, clear golden with a creamy white head. Very sweet nose, just a little dusty. Taste is very sweet, loaded down with metal, dirt, sour grass, alcohol, straw, soap, rancid butter, christ, this is revolting! Seriously, holy crap, how many impurities can be shoved into a single 11.2 oz bottle? Easily the worst beer I’ve had this year and probably bottom-five for the 2200ish I’ve had in total. estpiwo (1319) - ESTONIA - OCT 26, 2009
Bottle. Golden color. Drinkable, but nothing for interest. Watery, little bit sour. NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2009
Golden colored brew. Aroma is a bit sour, strange. Flavor is cardboard and dishwater, some vinegar. Very unpleasant.

0,33 l bottle. ABV - 5%. Very pale colored, fast disappearing head. Unpleasant, weak taste. Lemon, vinegar and metallic aromas. Sour finish. Not recommended. LeopoldT (90) - Lazarevac, SERBIA - APR 25, 2008
Very weak pale watery lager. Unpleasant smell and very short lasting thin head are first bad impressions. kozzak1 (70) - Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2004

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2003 Bottled (cheap looking 1.5l PET bottle).
Pale golden with firm airy head. Vinegary nose. Watery with very poor malt structure and a bucket full of butyric acid. Terrible.
