I was in Croatia during the fall of 2007 and drank many liters of Ozujsko pivo. Fresh it's quite good and the canned adaptation, purchased at the LCBO and marked for being stale in 9 months, is a respectable representation as well.
It starts with a like-able golden color pour and decent head with typical carbonation. But the joy of this beer is the smell. It's lightly floral with overtones of honey.. and surprisingly the canned version retains this as well. It really just smells good and it's one of the few accessible beers you can enjoy poking your nose in and smelling before opening your mouth.
When you do, the taste is a definitive balance of the floral sweetness you smell and a hop like bitterness that remains a little longer. The can translates a light metallic taste to it unfortunately but it's not overpowering.
Outside in the sun after work, or on vacation, it's a great beer to enjoy. And I might just have another.
