Karlovačko has a very thick, foamy, white head, a clear, bubbly, golden-straw appearance, and some splotchy lacing left behind. The aroma is sweet, biscuit, barley malt and a touch of hop oil, and the flavor is the same, with pleasant, grassy hops to round it out. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Karlovačko finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and dry. Overall, this is a delicious beer. RJT

33cl Bottle: BBD 27 Mar 2014, poured into a Konig Pilsner stemmed tulip three times on 12th Feb 2014. Obtained from Ambrosetti in Berlin and drank at home.

Huge white head on a bright golden body, clear and clean looking on each pour.

I so wanted this to be wonderful, my first ever beer from Croatia: actually it wasn't too bad. Usual Pilsner/Lager aroma, meaning almost odourless, this had a few hints of a grainy sweetness to be fair, but not enough to get excited about.

The taste was leaning towards a malty sweetness, but again nothing huge or exciting. This was another European Pilsner/Lager than doesn't try to upset anyone and could have been one of many such beers from anywhere around the world.

Just above average in it's style and class: a country tick, no more and no less.
