A- very thin lace on a deep gold clear body with medium carbonation.
Smell: A slightly musty scent, not very strong. Fresh barley and maybe a slight note of hops.
Taste is simple, some pilsner malt & grain with a touch of floral hops
M- it's not highly carbonated, and not a terribly substantial mouthfeel.
D: Solid, average and down the middle.

Serving type: can

Had on tap in half litre glasses in several locations in Slovenia and Croatia while touring, at fair price of around €2.50 in most places.

Bright gold colour and crystal clear, fair head to start but dissipated quickly. Aroma was laid back, grassy and dry as in most European lager/pilsner styles, though not as strong as some.

Very clean crisp taste, slightly more malts at first, then hint of bitterness from hops comes through at the end, though no great lingering aftertaste. Did not have that "metallic" aftertaste that some mass produced beers suffer from. Very refreshing and easy to drink, I enjoyed this - especially on a hot sunny day, though nothing outstanding, very pleasant in the 'on tap' form I had and recommended.

2.6/5  rDev -14.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Big 50cl can. All red with a "so-standard-I-could-cry" ellipsoid crest on the front, rather like a red version of Heineken that says "Karlovacko" instead of Heineken. displays medals it has won on the front, along with a proud "Product of Croatia" legend.

Now to the real stuff:

Pale gold body, with lots of carbonation, and a good rocky crown of white foam. Pretty good lacing too, and the retention is great.

Slightly sour, slightly tinny aroma. Some sweetness, some carbonic seltzer water flavour. Not entirely unpleasant, but to be honest it's pretty weak. Not a lot to it.

Taste is initially flat with a little sweetness. Late on the palate arrives a coppery bitterness and a residual husky, grain flavour. Mouthfeel is lightly spiky but otherwise dry. It's not as clean and smooth as some of the other easy-drinking Euro lagers, but it does have some character.

It's reasonably easy to drink, and reasonably unoffensive. It's not a great beer though, and I'd be loath to call it an above average pils-style lager. Don't count on winning too many more medals, guys.

This was a decent beer. Pretty simple and straight forward. While it is certainly drinkable, it is also in my opinion somewhat forgetable. Nothing really stood out while drinking this beer. Certainly a bit better than the american alternatives, but still nothing to get excited about.
