Medium amber body; thick, fluffy white head; sheets of sticky foam down the glass. Light cereal grain scent; toasted bread crust; slight herbal hop presence. The taste follows the aroma; well-balanced malt and hop flavors; clean. Relatively light body; crisp with a moderately dry finish.

I don't understand the poor rating for this beer. It's balanced and nuanced, delivering a refreshing and flavorful Bosnian lager experience.

A perfect example of todays greedy "brewing" world.Brew something that will be called and that looks as beer, so you can make profit.Who cares about taste.What a disrespect of consumers.

Poured from a 0.5L brown bottle,that is about 2 weeks old.Old gold color with small head and smell of yeast.A bite in mouth from carbonation.A taste of cardboard ,caramel malt,grass,diacetyl.
As time is passing, it gets harder and harder to swalow it.Dirty palet of sensation.Last sips taste like corn water and sour cabage that is turning bad.

Had this first a couple of years ago so I had to try it again to make sure what it's worth. Now I am impressed (with myself) how I could drink this at all in the first place...
Thin, watery, overcarbonated... tasteless, slightly bitter. The best thing is its color - but even that is below mediocre. Not the WORST beer in the world though, so I could back it down again if I had to - just I hope I won't. Zajecarsko or LAV were much better from Serbia.

Review: Can of Jelen Svetlo Pivo: ABV: : 5%

My introduction to Serbian lager

On pour we get a lovely clear golden colour, with a nice frothy white head forming, bubbling along, good retention.
Some great carbonation and a decent head, this really is a good looking beer
Some lacing. Excellent on view…..

Smell was very slight, couldn’t really tell you much about it as it was so faint, nothing!…….

Taste: Don’t believe it, absolutely NO TASTE!! No bitterness, no taste of the malts or hops, nothing. Quite amazing really. Very watery with no character
Its definitely smooth and light, but has a very flat taste. Just bang, nothing. What a poor excuse for a beer. Basically mineral water with minute traces of alcohol, I guess!

Poured from a 16.9 OZ bottle into a mug. Crystal clear golden color with a small white head. A very mild European flavor. Very enjoyable, good with food.
