Pours a light golden color color with a nice head. Smells sweet and floral like. Taste is just like it smells except with a slight bitterness and goes down pretty smooth. Overall one off the best Czech Pilsener I've had.

Format: a standard 330mL green bottle with a standard macro label.

Appearance: pours out a solid amber colour with light carbonation across the profile. A fluffy white head drops down to a thin cap.

Aroma: light grains with some grass hops. Nothing special.

Taste: the grains again with a light bread malt. The hops are pretty much unnoticeable.

Aftertaste: slight hops and those bread malts lingering through. Ho-hum.

Mouth feel: medium in feel with a moderate to higher carbonation. Reasonable.

Overall: an okay pilsener but certainly not the best I have ever had. I'll definitely take another option for the AU$52 a case mark.

Review: Can of Karlovacko Pivo Beer, 5.2% ABV

My first Croatian beer The aroma was a good grain scent with some malt sweetness, nice. A nice thick, foamy, white head appeared after the pour, that stuck around. A bit of lacing noted.

The colour was a bright clear golden straw appearance. Had a bitter taste, and I felt it was a strong beer. No doubt a few of these under my belt and I would be ready for a good party.

A good clean Pale Lager, with a nice decent aroma.

A mild tasting, low body, clear looking and clean pilsner. Some bready characteristics and light hops flavor. Not ordinarily something that I would have on a regular basis. However, being that I was at a European style tavern run by and patronized by people from various parts of the former Yugoslavia, the mood was perfect. Furthermore, the spicy sausage I ate with it was the perfect counterpoint.

Clear dark golden body and a thin soapy white head that leaves some lace.

Herbal and grassy hop with some biscuit malt.

Light hop notes with the bigger malty/grainy contribution. Not the best of flavors.

Light bodied with some nice little scrubby carbonation.

Decent enough beer.

3/5  rDev -1.3%

Light golden, with the typical thin head.
Grainy nose, like a first pressing of grain.
Taste of apples. First mouthful sifts into a bitter afterbite that is the primary reason I don't like pilseners to begin with.
Second mouthful, not so bad. Maybe I should have cleansed better beforehand.

Same thin, limpid pilsener feel in the mouth. Nothing much happening.
Not bad for a pilsener, but I probably should have tried it in on a sunny May or June afternoon, instead of a rainy October evening.
