500ml bottle (Kasisaba, Tallinn)Bierkrug (2129) - - OCT 27, 2008
Cold. Bugger all aroma. Simple grainy taste, some husks, some muesli. Anna gets those and honey too in the aroma. Finish a touch hoppy. Competent pale lager.
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2009 33cl Bottle Bagdad Iraq. Golden colour with a white head. Malty, straw aroma and a sweet malty, straw taste. Medium body with a sweet finish.
Not that it is a great beer but you can’t find much better than this in Baghdad.

Pale golden coloured, medium sized white head, salty grainy nose. Light malty, weak hoppy and grainy with salty notes in the finish. Expected watery palate, boring lager. Had far worse beers, also far better.
Bottle. Golden color with white head. Sweet aroma. Flavor is empty, something sweet, without aftertaste. heavy (2890) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 21, 2008
0.5 l can, had it directly from it. Aroma of sweet malty flowers and some herbal hoppiness. Flavor quite similar to austrian marzens, malty, sweetish, pretty bland, but still pleasant and drinkable. Had medium carbonation with quite long industrial sweetish finish. Not bad, not good either. But...as Doggythedog said, we have more than enough pale lagers...and why not, we deserve it when we live in a country where people like "pale beer" not "dark beer". That’s our mass’ only classification.

The bottle looks really good. The beer in the glass normal. Very zippy, not much foam. Starts dry and hoppy, then a bit vapid. The finish is dry and sourish. Drinkable. One of the best Oettinger-beers. Marko (5928) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 19, 2008

Pale yellow-golden colour, big thick white head that went away at a medium to slow pace. Slightly grainy nose. Dusty, eggy taste, some sourish hopiness. Grainy maltiness. Typical, boring industrial German lager, nothing to write home about. And now, the rant. This is imported by Daruvarska Pivovara and their owners, Durata (a company that fills beers in cans and plastic bottles). They do the bottling (Daruvarska) and the canning (Durata) for some reason. Odd but it wouldn’t be bad if not for the fact that they’ve increased their portfolio (consisting of a pils and a bunch of supermarket pale lagers) in the last few months with 2 other useless pale lagers. I mean, what the fuck. CROATIA DOESN’T NEED MORE PALE LAGERS. We need more styles, at least black beers. NOT PALE LAGERS, IMPORTED OR LOCALLY BREWED. Please make something else. Please.
clear and bright golden colour with a little white foam; nice lace; gentle herbal aroma, sweet and medium-bodied, late and decent bitterness; long herbal finish - not bad oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Pours a nice light golden yellow. Aromas of hops, grass, and maybe corn. Taste is crisp with a nice mellow hop flavor. faroeviking (11086) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - APR 10, 2008
