.5l Can, another old timer that I haven’t rated yet for some reason, bought at Super Vero in Belgrade. Rich yellow lager pour, minimal head, perfume and something like alc. deadened flavors but quite respectable macro for these parts. Would enjoy trying in bulk instead of the normal availabilities to see how that balanced out. Tastier and more appealing than most

Kita (2017) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 26, 2011
Canned, 0.5l. Pours clear golden with medium sized frothy white head. Not very pleasant aroma of wine marc. Sweet malty taste with mild grassy hops at finish. Light bodied with thin texture and average carbonation in palate. Slightly plain mouthfeel as expected for mass produced Slovenian lager. On the other side, refreshing and drinkable.

Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2011
Union - diesmal nicht aus Dortmund, sondern aus Slowenien. Im Geruch überwiegend hopfig mit einigen Malzflocken. Der geschmack präsentiert sich ordentlich herb mit leichten Fruchtnoten. Das herbe Niveau wird ganz gut gehlaten. Im Abgang zunehmend bitterer. Soweit ok und trinkbar. Test vom 9.2.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche
