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.

Not a bad lager, but nothing special either. Kind of bland and unexciting, but easily drinkable. Medium gold with lazy carbonation and thin off white head. Lagerish grain aroma, and mostly grain taste, just a pinch of hops at the finish. This could use a little bit more bite....

500ml Can in Bar Pausa Caffé, Trieste, Italy (€2):
This one was a terrible introduction to Serbian beer, definitely one of the worst lagers I've tried in a while & not one that I could recommend. There was way too much skunk showing & the taste lacked on pretty much everything, the beer was watery & bland making it a real struggle to finish despite the Italian sun making me thirsty; the fact that it was my first Serbian beer was the only positive I took from this one.

Pours clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is corn, grass and hay. Flavor is light plus sweet and light bitter, a touch of green apple. Light body, fairly high carbonation.
