Iznogud (3801) - CROATIA - JUL 10, 2017
Bottle, 500 ml, from Vrutak. Pours orange, short lasting white head. Malty, watery, sweetish, very light caramel, some bitterness in finish. Light bodied. Pretty much awful.

From old tasting notes. Cloudy, copper red color with small bubbles and a tan head. Light malt aroma. Light fruity malt flavor has a nice hop character. Lovely dry finished aftertaste of long duration.nvery good.

23rd June 2017. Found a 500ml clear bottle of this (BB May 2018) at the back of my fathers fridge. Really surprised I have never rated it before, cask yes, bottle format, no. Anyway it’s a reddy amber in colour and has a fast fading beige head. Malty molasses (mostly caramel like) rule the nose and taste, slight herbal twist in both the aroma and flavour. Bog standard English Bitter really, not the best, but certainly not the worst.

Amber color, small white head. Malt and earth aroma. Taste light caramel, bitterness.

Hermod (7879) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2017
50cl bottle from Lidl. Poured amber color, white head. Sweet toffee, caramelly aroma. Mild bitter sweet, toffee, caramel flavor. Sweet but I kinda enjoy the fudgy caramel malts here.

Nurmis (687) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2017
500ml bottle from local lidl. Clear amber. Caramel malts with herbal hops. Decent bitter.

ogivlado (7810) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 7, 2017
Bottled 500ml. -from local Lidl Zagreb. Clear amber coloured, medium to big sized off-white head, dusty caramellish nose. Sweet malty, light dry caramel, light herbal hops and mild nutty notes. Rather dry bitter finish. Usual bitter.

nephirem (540) - CROATIA - JUN 1, 2017
Bottle, 0.5l. Clear amber pour with two finger slightly off-white head. Surprisingly decent retention. Minimal lacing. Nose is mostly herbal with some earthy notes. Subtle bitter orange in the background. Medium body with soft carbonation. Texture is smooth and surprisingly thick. Aroma and taste pretty much typical for the style. Moderately bitter with slight metallic acidity. Earthy hops. Grassy. Peppery. Ashy. Usual cardboard-like aroma. Surprising amount of aroma for the low ABV. Short finish, a bit dry with metlic acidity. Overall, not bad. Unimaginative but drinkable nonetheless.

FireGlider (590) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 31, 2017
Clear amber color with small white head. Malt and grain aroma. Bitter and sweet taste. Dry aftertaste. Not particularly good.

kovica (285) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 29, 2017
0,5 l. Bottle. Amber color with small head. Malt aroma. Bitter taste. Bitter finish.
