flying_pig (1544) - SCOTLAND - SEP 1, 2015
500ml bottle from Billa supermarket, Zagreb (11.99 kuna):
Quite a nice dark style lager with plenty of caramel malts & nice, darker malts & fruits in there that keep things balanced & interesting. There was a pleasant hint of coffee to proceedings & I was surprised at how easy it was to drink with help from the creamy palate. Definitely one well worth seeking out if you ever find yourself in the north of Croatia & one Im glad I stumbled across.

hrabren (1173) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 11, 2015
This was my favorite beer from Medvegrad since 2004., rating it only now. Dark brown with orange tint, off white to tan lasting head. Lagerish aroma, hay and malt, hints of roast in the background. Roasty character, malty, caramel, nuts and some chocolate in the finish. Medium carbonation, medium body. A proper example of style.
