Had this one in Montenegro. Was drinkable, and better than their Euro Pale. I would have ordered it at more bars, but not many places carried it and mostly had to be picked up in stores. It could have had more flavor, but I am not complaining, I was just happy to have something with some flavor.

I actually had this out of a 2-liter plastic bottle. Apparently, in Serbia, this is how they sell beer in the supermarkets. Very odd.
A. It was dark with a hint of light sneaking through at the bottom. Some head and lacing, bubbly tan, that went away quickly.
S. Slight malty scent to it.
T. This reminded me of a poor man's Newcastle. It was actually pretty solid and smooth, had a slight nutty maltiness to it. Nothing too potent, but very solid and was refreshing.
M. Bit of a bubbliness to it. Very mild sourish aftertaste.
D. Very smooth and since it isn't too intense, it's easy to drink.

From a bottle, pours a thin cola brown color with a small fizzy off-white head that looks alot like soda.

The nose is light roast, caramel, toffee, a bit nutty. The flavor is sweet caramel, chocolate malt, a little tart and some earthy notes and crisp hops. The mouthfeel is fine, clean and crisp.

Overall, I had low expectations and this passed them. Not bad at all.

Appearance: Cola black,with head on,lasting for less then minute.
Smell: the aroma is subtle. It is biscuit,caramel.
Tasty, drinkable.
M- The medium mouthfeel with low real alcohol heat noticed. Maybe some coffee tastes. Medium carbonation.
D - Not hard to drink.
Interesting is that this beer is official Montenegro beer from Niksic made only in Apatin brewery in Serbia.

Can from a corner store in Belgrade. From notes.

A - Poured an amberish colour with a 2 finger, cola like head. No visible carbonation. Bright. Head gone fast. No lacing.

S - Very mild. Brown sugar and plums I think.

T - Brown sugar, plum, dark malt. Quite sweet.

M - Medium body with light carbonation. Dry finish.

O/D - Meant to be put back fast. Lacked any real malty qualities or flavours. Like a thicker sweet drink.

Not bad; drinkable. Hair on the sweet side. Pretty smooth. Poured with a fine tan head and lace. Opaque brown. Burnt sugar, roasty, no hop aroma. Fresh characteristics. Bittersweet tang in the finish. Decent, but not great body. Perhaps session. No hint of alcohol.

Finals are done again, so I finally have time to drink beer again.

An interesting selection this time as this beer really isn't available in my home province of Alberta. My Father was kind enough to bring back a couple of cans of this brewery's beer from his recent trip to Europe, and it's about time I tried it out.

There aren't a whole lot of dark euro lagers available in these parts, but I have tried a few, and in comparison to those, this one is actually quite good. The pour isn't really outstanding- the head is very modest at only about one centimetre in height. Still, the dark colour is generally more appealing to look at than a yellow one of a crappy beer.

The aroma is very faint - a little bit of dark malt and not much hops. Standard kind of stuff.

The taste is great though - it's refreshing with a mild bitter taste, and a finish that sort of resembles a weak espresso. No bad aftertaste, no nasty adjunct notes, just a fine beer taste.

The feel is silky with a moderate carbonation. Very nice.

I'd drink this again if AGLC starts to import it.
