So, this review may not be completely objective, because I have been drinking this beer for ages now, it has been my first beer I have ever tasted, and so far my last one (since I just finished one). The glass was full of golden delight topped with a decent and foamy head. It had the typical aroma of the bready malt and some grassy note as well in there. The taste was sweet, finishing with a slight bitterness. All in all, a nice and refreshing beer, perfect for a night drink with the guys.

2.45/5  rDev -21%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Light looking and clear pale amber to straw colour with plenty of bubbles. It is quite a light looking beer, even for a pale lager although the head retention isn't the worst at least.

Very light grassy hops to begin with, along with some skunk and grain. There is some vegetable adjuncts and a touch of cheap lager malts but overall the aroma is on the poor side.

Light on taste to begin with, however there is some corn, grain and cheap adjuncts along with some sweetness. It's not a great taste at all and is rounded off with some bread and lager hops.

Light, thin and cheap on the palate with some grain but other than that a mainly smooth feel. There is a touch of skunk and it comes across as being quite bland and watered down meaning it wasn't all that refreshing either.

A very poor offering and not how I wanted my introduction to Slovenian beer to go. It was at least somewhat drinkable but not great or refreshing really, which is all you want from a cheap pale lager in a foreign country. Cheap, unexciting and not worth trying, give this one a miss.

when i first had this it was ice cold on a 100 degree day, and i thought it was sensational. every subsequent drinking ive thought less and less of it. now im to the point where i cant really stomach more than one. call it beer fatigue, but this doesnt really work for me anymore. smells like a standard euro adjunct, with a crispy hop presence in the nose that doesnt quite make it to the flavor. it also has a decent malt profile in both aroma and flavor, not at all heavy, but not watered down either. flavor is pretty standard, a little mineral rich, but quite drinkable at a cold temperature. feel is way too carbonated, but the body is fine for a hot day. its the after taste that i think is the nasty part, i try to ignore it by drinking another sip before it sets in. im sure ill have this again, but i likely wont be too enthused.

Continuing my goal of reviewing all the random import cans at the local LCBO comes this brew...

A - Pours a pale golden colour, thumb of head with little retention and a little sporadic lacing.

S - Mild on the nose, grassy hop notes, musty cardboard, paper mache and a metallic finish.

T - Mild again, musty grassy notes, hints of sweet corn, buttered bread and wet cardboard.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and wet.

O - A mild and unadventurous pilz. I have a feeling I will continue to be underwhelmed by these import cans, but here's to hoping I will discover a hidden gem. This unfortunately, is not it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A-Golden color,nice white foam,staying for couple of seconds,but stay with one finger till the end. Medium carbonation.

S-Extremely awful,very unpleasant smell,don't know what it is,like bad brandy.

T/M- Taste is below average for lagers. At the first,it is refreshing,but as you drink it,it tastes sorrow. Some bitter aftertaste.

O-Expected much more from this,Lasko produce nice beers,but this one is above their standards.

3.15/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a familiar golden-yellow colour, topped with a thin white head that lasts a few minutes before fading into wisps upon the surface. A thin collar follows the edge of the glass, but there is little-to-no-lacing. Carbonation level looks appropriate. The aroma is nice but highly generic; grainy cracker malts and grass.

Clean, crisp taste, but nothing especially interesting as far as flavour goes - those same doughy, grainy malts provide a bit of sweetness, with some light hay-like hops rounding out the profile. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Feels a little slippery on the tongue.

I can't really work up much enthusiasm for this, but it's a perfectly drinkable lager. I bought this mostly because I've never had Slovenian beer before, and I doubt I'll get it again.

500ml Can

Appearance - Clear gold/yellow colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is a fair amount of lacing. The head lasted for around 3 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Grains, hops, floral notes, lemon, corn

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation. I can taste grains mixed with light hops and some lemons. There is also a little bit of a metallic flavour mixed with corn. As well I picked up on a bit of a fruit sweetness.. perhaps pears or apples. The beer finishes with a grainy aftertaste with a fair amount of a spicy bitterness.

Overall – A highly drinkable beer that was unremarkable. Just another Euro lager..

2.85/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

330 mL can from a small store in Sarajevo. Can says 4.9% ABV.

A - Pours with a loose, soapy white head of two fingers. Bright gold or yellow colour with alot of carbonation. Bright. Lacing is quite good with chunks around the sides and a retention that is better than it should be.

S - Sweet corny malt. Some hay like hop notes.

T - Sweet malt, less corny. Grassy, hay hop notes. More sweetness than I would like.

M - Medium carbonation and light to medium body. Creamy. Not crisp.

D - Meh. A Euro lager less sweet than your typical stuff but not good by any means. Worth it if the only thing available is less interesting but otherwise a pass.
