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.

Drank this more than I wanted to last time I was in Serbia - it was okay as far as mass-produced beer, but you literally cannot avoid it. The taste is really uniform and to be honest pretty bland and tiresome quickly. It'll get the job done, but if you're eating in Serbia and want a drink ask for the house wine or rakija (domestic brandy, if you're up to it); those will always be preferable. Staroprommen or Erdinger are also usually available, and are significantly better.
