3.06/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Format: a big brown 500mL bottle with an average macro label.

Appearance: pours out a light straw yellow with plenty of visible carbonation. A thin white head lasts the distance.

Aroma: grass and floral hops with some of those standard grains and adjuncts. A bit too light.

Taste: pretty much the same - those adjuncts with some decent hops. Not a bad macro lager.

Aftertaste: some hop bitterness with those grains poking their heads in.

Mouth feel: light in body with a moderate to higher carbonation, a bit dry on the finish.

Overall: not a bad macro lager - a cut above most other dodgy Euro Lager nastiness. Very drinkable and good on a hot day.

Brewed with mountain water. The Coors of the Balkans?

Big øl can .5l plus 13.6% free Football Edition can.

Looks like typical fare for the style. Leaves some nice lace.

Grass, hay, bread, grain aroma.

Wasn't expecting as much grassy hop on the flavor as I got from a beer like this. Bready malt.

Lively carbonation and light bodied.

Much more than I expected. Not many options in Montenegro so go for this.

Green 33cl bottle from Ambrosetti (Berlin) purely for the tick.

Poured at home on 5th Feb 2014, two weeks after it’s BBD.

Sat in a Duvel glass it soon lost it’s white head. Golden, clear and clean though.

Sweet and grainy feel to the aroma and taste.

This isn’t a great beer at all. I struggled to finish my little bottle and even offered the wife and daughter a sip.

I’ll not be seeking another!

Another typical Euro lager, perfect for a hot day at the beach.
Pours a golden color, clear, and a couple of fingers of white head.
There are sweet malts in the aroma, as well as some grains. Nothing special.
The taste starts slightly sweet, but turns into a very refreshing bitterness. Finishes with a nice hoppy bitterness.
Refreshing, drinkable, nice.

A; Pale yellow, like the urine of a moderately hydrated person. Little to no head.

S: Like stale frat party beer

T: See above, and add in a small amount of metallic aftertaste, like you'd just put a 9 volt battery on your tongue.

M: regretful

O; I wish I could say this bottle was skunked, but honestly, I can't be certain. For all I know, it's exactly how the brewers intended it to taste - bad. I'm certainly glad I didn't pay $ for this - a coworker gave it to me, but I'm bothered that they had to give up any amount of money to obtain it. This truly is one of the worst beers I've ever had,

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.75

Nearly as pale a yellow as I've ever seen, it's not quite the lightest. There's a bit of a bright gold hue to the straw yellow. A soapy pure white head foams up on the pour to a craggy two fingers or so and drops down quickly. It does leave a steady foam, helped along some by continual bubbling from the bottom of the glass. A touch of spotty lacing is left behind.
First off on the nose is some sulfur / skunk. After that, there's a bit of grass and a metallic note.
The flavor offers a bit more, some pale malts and a slight herbal note to the grassiness. There's also a sweetness to the grains and some corn husk.
Crisp and very light-bodied, there's a slickness before the effervescence leads into a watery finish.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Pours a crystal clear medium straw yellow in color with some very light amounts of visible carbonation and some light golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy white head that slowly reduces to a medium patch of thin film with a very thin film covering the majority of the rest of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of cereal grain malts with fairly significant amounts of corn and grain sweetness. There are also slightly lighter notes of floral and grassy hop aromas.

T: Light to moderate flavors of cereal grain malts and bready malts and there is a light amount of sweetness upfront. The grassy hops contribute some light amounts of lingering bitterness.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Very light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: The smell is all American Adjunct Lager but the flavors are better than that with some more notes of a Pilsener. Overall, not a horrible beer (my expectations were pretty low) and pretty easy to drink but don't think I will be seeking it out again.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

A: The beer is crystal clear straw yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, but consistently left a thin head covering the surfaced and moderate lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of corn and grainy malts are present in the nose, which also has some hints of floral and grassy hops.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that that the adjunct malts aren't that noticeable and there are also some hints of sweet, bready malts. The hops contribute a light amount of bitterness that lingers through the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied and a little dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer smells like a typical adjunct lager, however the taste isn't that bad since the flavors of corn are mostly masked from the taste.
