This is an excellent pislner/helles type, a characterful, well-rounded pale lager in the traditional German/Czech vein. I had if repeatedly in bottle and on tap in BiH. It is golden with a big white head, lasting, some lace. Aroma is nice grain, grass, herb. Taste is excellent light grain-bread sweetness, hint of apple, lots or herbal, grassy hop. Sweetness is light but firm with good hop bitterness to balance out nicely. I had numerous beers on my travels on this trip through Bosnia, Montenegro, and Albania, including Efes (which I first had in Turkey in 200 and have always found enjoyable),, Niksicko, Korca and other Albanian beers, and some others from BiH and this was the best of the pale lagers by far. It had the strongest hop character and the best complexity. It is an excellent example of a helles or Czech pislner genre.

Probably a prototypical bland lager. It's in a green bottle and mine was obviously light damaged so it tasted like skunk.

Marketing guys who push green bottles should be strung up by their toes.

This is another European standard lager. Clear and light bodied, with a more pronounced bitterness than usual. Decent and easy to drink.

Bottle from Tres Bonne Cuisine. Musty, yeasty aroma, pale golden body with slight creamy head. Taste is bread, flat and uninteresting. Typical pale lager, no finish, some sour, yeasty aftertaste.

Contains a little more of a gas and it is very tasty and nice color.

Pours golden, a tiny bit hazy, with a tiny white head that lasts for a while.
Smell of grains, cooked corn, some faint hops and a faint hint of sourness.
Weird cereal taste, but not bad, with cooked grains and corn, faint butter and lactic sourness, swept away quick by some skunk and grassy bitter hops with a small metallic note.
Medium body and carbonation, kind of a bad aftertaste.
A bit more interesting than the usual Eurolager, but damaged by some big bad elements.
