Pours golden 8-9 ebc, malty aroma, absence of hop aroma was slightly dissapointing. Medium body with some bitterness. Not bad but not very good either.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, purchased and consumed in Serbia. Pours a semi clear amber colour, kind of nut skin very nice. Great tick off-white head. Nose: a bit nutty, roasted malt beans, dusty, just a hint of dust, not that much of hops but some grassy floral here and there. Quite clean and nice. Mouth: soft carbonation, nutty full bodied, a very peppery and distinctively herbal (almost chicory) elegant finish which stays in the palate after. Quite tasty, really.

Whee, another "classic" I finally get to try. At the Ožujsko Bar in Tkalčićeva street, Zagreb. Darker amber body, misty with a lasting head. Vaguely dusty sweetish aroma, dried apricots, very light cardboard. Simple taste, peachy, malty, with a short stab of herbal hoppy bitterness. Solid body. Yeah, drinkable, will get a chuckle for being called an IPA by today’s standards, but not something I’ll likely be returning to much.

0.5l bottle. Amber color. Aroma is fruity, earthy and herbal. Taste is sweet with hop character. Overall it’s interesting beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A copper coloured beer with a thick white head. A light nutty malt aroma, dusty and a touch bready. Dry mouthfeel. A medium bitterness starts the taste off, pithy citrus fruit and grassy, which is followed by a dry, nutty malt flavour, this brings forth a ripe fruit vinous taste. A well rounded finish, of both hop and malt elements.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear deep amber color, average sized white head. Aroma is full of sweetness, red fruits, maybe raisins, biscuit... IPA? Hmmm... Taste is, again, sweet. Red fruits and raisins, dominantly malty, some caramel touches. Some hop traces in finish, at last. Citrus notes, maybe even some exotic fruits, but very vaguely. Nevertheless, clean and fresh, very drinkable stuff, just not for me.
