Look: Pours a clear pale yellow with a 1 1/2 finger white head. Decent head retention.

Smell: Dry grasss and corn. Very basic.

Taste: Follows the smell. All corn syrup and dry grass. Too sweet to refresh.

Feel: Light and medium carbonation.

A fitting beer on a day Croatia couldn't get it done against Czech Republic on the pitch. I give it a C-

330 ml can, at RBNAG 2009 in Vatlandsvåg, ABV 5.4%. Pale golden colour, low head. Sweetish fruity aroma, hints of butterscotch, not unpleasant. Fairly bland flavour, but not unpleasant, easy drinking.

Mine came in a red can. Pours crystal clear gold in colour with a small head. Very bland on the smell. Most of these imported European lagers taste very similar to me and hence have very similar ratings. Bready and doughy on the taste, a bit of hops, some sweetness. Average beer

Came in a green bottle, which alarmed me, because green bottles usually equate to skunk. Not so with this! Whew.

Pours an apple cider colour with no head, smell is a malt forward aroma. Taste is sweeter with a nice biscuity flavour, finish is smooth with mild hops.

La birra si presenta di colore giallo paglierino, con un cappello di schiuma non troppo persistente, a grana media-fine.
Aroma di malto, cereali, crosta di pane, solo un filo metallico.
Gusto di malto, miele, biscotto, con un retrogusto equilibrato, ma abbastanza dolce.
Si tratta di una birra leggera, dalla scarsa carbonazione.

It looks of a pale yellow colour, with a not too persisent head of foam , with medium-thin grain.
Aroma of malt, cereals, crust of bread, only a little metallic.
Taste of malt, honey, biscuit, with a balanced aftertaste, but rather sweet and pleasant.
It is a beer with light body, with low carbonation.

.5 L cans in Croatia.
This is a solid but unexceptional European pilsner. It is clean and refreshing, equipped with lively carbonation, and good with food,

From the 500 ml. green bottle with a marking of L8290. Sampled June 28, 2019. Maybe my first beer from Croatia.

Lager looking golden pour with a chill haze and short lived white head. Average clarity.

Green bottle skunkiness comes into play on the nose. But once I have accepted that I find a decent enough toasted white bread crust, barley grain, and floral character.

Light refreshing body.

The taste is a step up as I get a nice breaded sweetness and a clean finish.

Decanted from a 16.9 oz (500 ml) green bottle into a custom taster pint; production code L9253.
A: Pours crystal clear, slightly dark golden color with a three and a half finger, foamy white head, beautiful, long lasting retention and lacing.
S: Was pleased that it wasn't skunked, but light, fairly basic, some pepper, but mostly earthy, grainy, and grassy aromas.
T: Very dry. Slightly malty, but characterized largely by outsized bitterness which starts early and lingers after swallowing. Nicely balanced, flavorful Bohemian Pilsener.
M: Light bodied with very persistent, tiny bubble carbonation. Smooth and creamy.
O: This is a solidly constructed Pilsener. Would love to try it on tap.

Poured from 500ml green bottle into glass. Purchased at a bottle shop in Fargo ND. Date code is 'L8291'.
Clear, pale gold colored body. Pour produces a half finger of white head, which stays around. Has quite a rising bubble show. No lacing.
Aroma of malt and corn. Little bit of sweet honey, and some spicy hops.
Taste is quite sweet, with malt and corn. Subdued spicy hops. The end is like honey bread.
Thin to medium mouth feel. Good carbonation. The beer is very quaffable.
Thankful that the beer was not skunky, being that it came from a green bottle. Okay for the Croatian beer halls, not as good as Czech pilsners.

Pours a pale, clear gold, with a quickly dissipating head.

Smells a little grassy, kind of herbal.

Taste is light, earthy, grassy.

Crisp, light, and refreshing...exactly what you expect from a euro pils.

Out of a 16.9 ounce bottle. Cheers! A little too much corn adjunct or something going on. It's not on par with your heineken and stella artois or your spaten lager. It's worth one try out. Let's make this review short & sweet. It's a little worse in my opinion your average euro pale lager. I agree with some people on this page talking about how overly sweet this beer is. I think heineken and stella artois are better euro lagers than this beer. Hey, at least I can tell my friends that I was able to try a beer from Croatia. Cheers! B-
