This is the second or third Slovenian beer that I'm having now in Croatia and I'm surprised to find how much Slovenian lagers are similar to the American Adjuncts. Of course clarity and purity perhaps can't be compared with the A&B's but that smooth, light taste is definitely alike. No bad overtone, no corn, no sickening yeast like the Euro Pale Lagers - this is definitely something better. Hardcore lager lovers would stone me for this but when it comes to lager I would choose something like this. I would rate it up to a good B+ lager, wonder if it would taste this good the next time if I had it again.

Pours a typical golden pilsner color, but head quickly dissipates and leaves no lacing. No detectable aroma. Taste started out sweet, but overall bland and watery. Dissappointing in general.

Lasko Zlatorog is a good commercial beer. I would call the taste and feel like a lager. In most places in Slovenia, you will have a choice of Union (more like a Pilsner) or Lasko. As of 2014 a few Micro brewers are available. But you will have to find those at a liquor store. : Extra note the Lasko Dark is better (imo) if available.
