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

Pours golden, a tiny bit hazy, with a tiny white head that lasts for a while.
Smell of grains, cooked corn, some faint hops and a faint hint of sourness.
Weird cereal taste, but not bad, with cooked grains and corn, faint butter and lactic sourness, swept away quick by some skunk and grassy bitter hops with a small metallic note.
Medium body and carbonation, kind of a bad aftertaste.
A bit more interesting than the usual Eurolager, but damaged by some big bad elements.

A: The beer is clear light straw yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high bright white head.
S: Moderately strong aromas of corn and the liquid butter that is pumped onto movie theater popcorn are present in the nose.
T: The taste isn't that flavorful and has light flavors of corn adjunct malts. The faintest hints of bitterness are present in the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied and a somewhat watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer had a really unusual odor that wasn't horrible but just had a strange semblance to buttery popcorn.

Foamy head that dissipates slowly leaving thin lacing, a clear yellow color. The aroma is weak and mildly acidic. There is bitterness in this beer, there is also malty sweetness, perhaps too much sweetness. This is the most popular beer in Sarajevo. I used to avoid this beer, but for some unexplainable reason I'm even enjoying driniking it now, from time to time. The majority of beers available here are bland pale lagers that taste alike, and those are what people here consider a beer. More complex beers, like pale ales, IPAs and such are unheard of here. To be honest, this is much better than American macros like Budweiser or Coors, but it’s a far cry from even the modest craft beers.

Gotta love a beer that opens like a grenade...

Pours a brilliant straw color with minimal white head that dissipates immediately, leaving no lacing.

Aroma is sweet and grainy, with notes of corn and minerals. There's a hint of herbal hops, and a bit of skunkiness.

Flavor is very sweet and malty, caramel and toffee, and very bready throughout, with a bit of a toasty finish. There's an overlapping tangy flavor, which is somewhat minerally, that does not belong. As it warms, cardboard and bitterness emerge.

Body is moderate, as is carbonation.

Overall, a very malt forward brew. Did not expect this much malt flavor. The finish us fairly cracker-like and dry. The tanginess is offputting, though, as is the oxidation.

Light, golden straw colour with a thumb sized, bubbly white head that slowly reducing in size to a fairly thin lacing.

Sweet, syrup like aroma to begin with along with some corn and basic lager hops. There is some lager malts too and hints of grain but this one is fairly standard with nothing too exciting going on.

Lighter than a typical pale lager with a sweet flavour lingering in the background along with some bread and before rounding it off with some lager malts, a touch of grassy hops and a little citrus finished with a mild bitter tang.

Smooth with a touch of stickiness right at the end, there is also strong carbonation from this one and a light yet refreshing finish to it. Quite sweet but nothing sickening.

I enjoyed this beer more than you would expect from a pale lager, even straight from the can this was a good beer but its main selling has got to be how easy it is to drink and how refreshing it is.

The beer has a ring tab pull top and pours a pale yellow golden in color.

The aroma is malty, grain, straw in a barn.

The taste generally follows the aromas and finishes semi-dry with a light bitterness.

There is an off tart note in the aftertaste. This beer has a nice maltiness, but would be well served with a more pronounced bitter finish. As Euro lagers go, it is unexceptional.
