luttonm (5268) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 27, 2008
500ml from Big Star in Seattle. An old standby from my times in the Balkans... one of the better ones there (though Peja from Kosovo is by far the best!). Golden lager look with thin/cream head. Malt/honey and creamed corn nose, taste of alcohol on the mouth, still sweet. crisp enough, fudgy finish. Great for a nostalgia trip

Finn (6824) - Troms, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2008
Bottle 0,25l. Pale golden colored. A small creamy head. Modest malty aroma. Watery impression. Some malty hints in the finish.

mmmbeer (1399) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 16, 2008
16.9 oz bottle poured into my insomniac stein- poured transparent thin golden yellow, medium carbonation, I had high hopes in the head that started at one finger but quickly bubbled away in one minute. Aroma of powdered sugar, corn, and rainfall (it’s not the stein- poured into 2 different containers from bottle- same result). HIts the mouth with a thin body, I say hello to the malt and the malt says goodbye, one single hop used in the whole barrel on the finish- good for the hop crisis I guess. Good thing- another country. Bad thing- still wide awake.

DandyWolfFloyd (1200) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2008
Very pleasent. It’s aroma is of a well balanced lager, not to bittered, nor to malted. It’s a clear yellow color, with a nice fluffy white head. It’s flavor is very balanced, with a nice hint of mild sweet malts. It’s a very smooth lager. A nice simple brew.

DruncanVeasey (8060) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2008
Tap, konobo Jerko, Primosten. The best beer in Croatia according to the waiter. Hmm. Bright and spritzy. Metallic, faintly grassy aroma. Popcorn, grass and metal. Washes down grilled shark with garlic and spinach very nicely, hvala. Lick of card. Refreshing (5.4%?!) with a pleasant bitterness. Sensible, industrial/international type pivo with no off-notes and nothing to distinguish it.

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 28, 2008
Avarage lager with a pale yellow body and a small delicious white head. Bottom fermentation in the nose with some floral-grassy hop. The flavor is all the same. An other beer to the croatian beach.

Todeon (325) - SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2008
Bottle. Pale lager. Really sweet and and filthy malty taste. May taste better on a superwarm day at the beach but otherwise nothing great here.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 8, 2008
Bottle, tasted 4 months after the "Best by..." date. Slightly dark golden pour, minimal head that doesn’t last long. Not much to smell on the nose. A little malt, a grain/corn aroma. More malt on the tongue, and more grain... almost bready. For a lager, hell, this was pretty darn good.

Pours pale lager like, nose is pale lager like, flavor is a bit bland and cardboard like.
