Cheepo bottle from B&M. Pours ruby with an off white head. The taste is malty with light spice. Not much else to report. Very bland.

veceo (1362) - Pula, CROATIA, - JAN 20, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2015 Clear reddish brown color, average sized off white head. Light to medium body, average carbonation. Aroma of malt, caramel and metal. Not very pleasant actually. Taste is somewhat better with burnt caramel, some red fruits and hops presence, soap, rubber. It has adequately balanced bittersweetness and thats not nearly as bad as the aroma. Still, very light, flat and, overall, not that good.
