Wow. Second Canadian to first to review this brew.

Very pale amber yellow colour. Actually matches the colour of the can nicely. Bone white head, decent retention, impressive lacing.

Meh, Slight sodium bicarbonate & lemon tea aroma

Taste was slightly sweet lemon tea. Finish is slightly off-puuting with a strong weedy bitterness.

Pretty average. light body,decent carbonation

Ok..It ain't German, but it's still better than most macros.

Does not look special, yellow with some carboration.

Taste is better if you are already drunk. Is a little bit bitter.

Smells not that good, but not awful.

Mouthfeel, nothing special. You can feel the bubbles but it's ok.

Overall, it's one of the most famous Serbian beers. Because I drank a million gallons of it already and because it's my daily beer, I will give it an OK mark.

Switzerland

2.16/5  rDev -18.5%
look: 3 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

pours a straw to golden liquid, not very firm head

nose: fruity, tainted with some quite aggressive artifificial notes

palate: almonds, rose hip, peanuts
starts a bit bitter, then turns sweet and ends bitter again

this is a very average lager - perhaps best drunk in the country of origin or by the serbian diaspora around the world

Serving type: can

2.7/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

A: The beer is crystal clear deep yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of skunk are present in the nose.
T: like the smell, the taste is skunky and has a light amount of bitterness. As the beer warms up, hints of grainy malts become noticeable.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little prickly on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I didn't have much expectations for this beer after smelling it, but fortunately the taste was slightly better than the smell.

2.6/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

A: Pours a crystal clear pale to medium yellow in color with some significant amounts of active visible carbonation and some light golden yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall bright white head that quickly reduces to a mottled thin film covering about 75% of the surface of the beer with a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of adjunct malts including some sweeter corn and grains as well as some light amounts of grassy hops. But the dominant aroma in this beer is that of skunk.

T: The overall flavor of this beer is extremely light in flavor with just some very light flavors of cereal malts with a touch of grain and corn adjunct sweetness. Very light notes of grassy hops and moderate skunky flavors. Light amounts of lingering bitterness.

M: Just heavier than light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation.

O: The smell of this beer is all American Adjunct Lager but the taste is slightly better than the smell would indicate. This is not an excellent beer and I would not likely try it again. There is a skunkiness that I would have expected from a European beer in a green bottle but that was not the case here.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Picked up a bottle at EuroMarket out of curiosity. No surprises here though, just a clean blonde macro lager. There's a tiny bit of toast, and a little hops spice in the finish, and a slight earthy aroma. But overall this is a bland, inoffensive lager, perfect for washing down a pljeskavica. Aside from the pasteurized, industrial lager character, there's nothing to complain about. But there's also absolutely nothing to write home about either.
