A - Pours a light golden colour, finger of head, some retention and no real lacing.

S - Mild on the nose, bready grains and sweet corn.

T - Mild flavoured, bready malts, grains, biscuit notes, toasted crackers and a grassy finish.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and wet.

O - A tasty lager, easily sessioned with no real aftertaste that leave you wondering if you've even drank a beer.

A thin head on a clear, golden body.
The aroma is a good grain scent with a bit of lemon.
The taste is a sweet/bitter lemon with a long honey finish. Really nice.
The texture is crisp and clean with moderate carbonation and medium body.
Aside from not having any head, this is a great beer. The taste was an almost perfect balance of bitter and sweet.

500mL bottle, code of "L3206" on label, unclear what that means.

clear golden color, big foamy bone-white head. great head retention. mild aroma of pale malt and grassy hops. taste is fairly similar. sweet grainy corn flavor and earthy mild hops. thin body, higher carbonation, but something actually feels sorta grainy on the tongue. weird.

overall - my first Croatian beer, but nothing special.

clear, golden yellow color with 1cm white head that disappeared before my very eyes.
skunk, cereal grains, a very classic light beer smell and as many have said, it smells a lot like Heineken. very, very flavorless. there's some cereal grains going on, but not much else. thankfully there wasn't any of the skunk flavor detected in the nose. the finish was dry and again, very flavorless. i didn't get any of the yeasty and spicy notes that others have spoken of. high carbonation. Not that good
