My introduction to Serbian lager
On pour we get a lovely clear golden colour, with a nice frothy white head forming, bubbling along, good retention.
Some great carbonation and a decent head, this really is a good looking beer
Some lacing. Excellent on view…..
Smell was very slight, couldn’t really tell you much about it as it was so faint, nothing!…….
Taste: Don’t believe it, absolutely NO TASTE!! No bitterness, no taste of the malts or hops, nothing. Quite amazing really. Very watery with no character
Its definitely smooth and light, but has a very flat taste. Just bang, nothing. What a poor excuse for a beer. Basically mineral water with minute traces of alcohol, I guess!
