Karlovačko has a very thick, foamy, white head, a clear, bubbly, golden-straw appearance, and some splotchy lacing left behind. The aroma is sweet, biscuit, barley malt and a touch of hop oil, and the flavor is the same, with pleasant, grassy hops to round it out. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Karlovačko finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and dry. Overall, this is a delicious beer. RJT

The nose does show some Saaz hop character, as well as a light doughy malt backdrop. It's all so slight, though, and could stand to be a little stronger. It falters even more on the palate, where the hops mostly show up as a clean bitterness. The malt becomes more toasty than it promised at first. They do get some things right, it's definitely a clean beer and nothing becomes annoying or cloying, but there is just a lack of complexity that ultimately dooms it to also-ran status. It's really only about toasty malt and lingering bitterness in the finish, and that gets too monotonous by the end of the bottle.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A nice soaring head of white crowned this beer after the pour. The color is a very pale golden straw color. That beautiful head doesn't stick, nor stay.

Smells like barley, corn, and Euro must. Has that Danish lager appeal, like Heineken. Perhaps, a little sweeter, but not offensively so. Lager grains, slight honey, and yeasty fruit.

Drinks a lot like the nose smells. Fruit rot, lagery grains, corn syrup, backend bitterness, and a generic sweet/stale carry-through. Has a note of light green apple and faint caraway. Some fusel and mintiness. The body has a decent shape, but it's not a game-changer. Carbonated averagely. Better than your average Euro Lager, but that's not saying too much. Especially, because it's listed as a Czech Pils.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.25

Pale straw colour, big white head, foamy and unhealthy looking.
Skunk smell from a distance, bit of grain, low hops.
Sweet malts, grains, bit of corn and honey, but skunked and big metallic bitterness in the finish.
Light body, very fizzy.
Bad, a gas station lager.

I tried a beer from Croatia, Karlovačko. It was horrible, really. I'm not sure how it was possible to make a beer that was simultaneously too bitter AND too sweet. It was so bad I could only stand 3 sips before I donated to a local tree in the park.
