Drank this more than I wanted to last time I was in Serbia - it was okay as far as mass-produced beer, but you literally cannot avoid it. The taste is really uniform and to be honest pretty bland and tiresome quickly. It'll get the job done, but if you're eating in Serbia and want a drink ask for the house wine or rakija (domestic brandy, if you're up to it); those will always be preferable. Staroprommen or Erdinger are also usually available, and are significantly better.

Not what I expected,...

A- nice retention and seafoam lace.

S- sweet malt backbone.

T- has a nice malty backbone.

M- balanced, overcarbonated, smooth

D- Very easy to drink. and it looks like many other "powder" beers who are produced without real and natural grain

A: Light golden, typical euro lager/pilsner style. White foam, nothing remarkable about the foam.

S: Little sweet pale malt.

T: Watery, sweetnes. Little white bread. No aftertaste at all.

O: Unintressting, taste to little to drink again (if I ever will se this again).

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

Logged on in Nis, Serbia where I am eating a nice chicken dish with the only beer on the menu, Jelen.

Poured from the 500mL bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pretty typical - gold and pale. Nothing too interesting here. Head doesn't last very long, but then again that's typical as well.

S: Grainy.

T: Watery and kind of twangy. Hint of grain and maybe something vegetal. Not a fan of this beer.

A big avoid from me. Another run of the mill eastern european lager

Golden appearance, white, average foam. Quite carbonated in appearance,
At the smell, almost nothing interesting. It is a macro lager.
Honest taste, without any strange adjunct. Quite bitter, too. Nothing to remember, but also, not undrinkable.
Some bitterness in the aftertaste.

I had out of a can while in Belgrade.
A. It's clear gold, with some streams of bubbles. It has a small head that dissipates quickly and only leaves a bit of lacing.
S. Mild metallic scent.
T. It tastes like a cheap American Macro beer, cheaper than a PBR. The after taste is sour. There is a bit of a lemony flavory. A slight malt taste. But to be honest, after a feel sips, it just become androgynous.
M. Sllight bit of carbonation. Leaves a sour aftertaste.
D. It's light, but has no redeeming quality to want to keep drinking.

I picked this one up in a gas station in eastern Bosnia Herzegovina. It comes in a tall 1/2 liter yellow can with a big antlered deer or elk below the name. It poured a clear pale yellow under 1.5 fingers of white head that fades very quickly, leaving no lace as it settles to film across the top of the liquid. There are lots of slightly off malt grains in the nose, with a hint of rice as one of them. The mouth is light and very prickly. Another plain Balkan lager, this one has a bit less malt, a bit more ear wax bitter hops. The carbonation is so harsh that it prevents the tongue from noting much flavor. Just a touch of lemon emerges as it warms, but this one isn't worth keeping around.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Clear, pale golden in color with a good sized white head that unfortunately doesn't last very long
Smell - not very aromatic, I get light malt and some citrus notes.
T/M: Not so good,not so bad,with huge taste of hop bitterness. Crisp, largely watery with medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Easy to drink first few,but after 3th or 4th it goes harder and harder.
