From a bottle into a Pils glass. Pours gold with head and lace. Aroma of grains, cereal, hay, straw. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of grains, straw hops, slight caramel malt, minerals. Overall light and refreshing...nothing offensive or particularly special, but fine for the style.

I didnt know Croatia made beer (stupid me, eh). This was a pleasant surprise, one of the better swills. Not much to object to, head, colour, aroma, and taste were all better than Id expected. Would have it again.

Gold color very clear white head not alot of lacing but good head retention. Aroma malty grainy earthy very slight skunkyness to it with some mild Carmel corn Bread, honey comb notes. Taste is very interesting has a herbal earthy hop and malt balance with a very unique slight nuttyness and some Carmel character and some lingering hop bitterness. The taste is hard to figure out but I really like this beer. It does not have the adjunk big macro brewery taste. Crisp and refreshing. Very diffrent and unique taste. Mouth feel is medium to light with good carbonation. This is a very good beer. Poored from a green bottle. Great lager/pilsner beer. Much better than Stella or anything like that.

Purchased at "Jungle Jims International Market" in Fairfield, Ohio - Alright, this one poured a fizzy, white headed brew with a grassy aroma. Tastewise, it was hoppier than most Eurulagers, with a sweet malty body.

Bottle (500ml, tried in Split, Croatia):
Lager malts to kick things off along wih some mild, earthy hops and a very slight hint of grain. There is some bread and corn.
Golden amber in appearance with a giant, foamy white head on top that settles at about two centimetres tall and stays well.
Earthy malts, lager hops with a hint of mild citrus and some bitterness along with it. There is a gerneral sweetness and the usual mix of bread and corn but all of these work well and it is quite a refreshing taste from this one.
Smooth & light bodied as you would expect from a pilsener, there is also good, strong carbonation without being too strong or off-putting. There is a nice fizz to the beer and it is very refreshing.

Nothing really spectacular or ground breaking but a very nice lager and one that I kept going back to day after day, this was excellent whilst sitting in the sun.
