Ožujsko is a pale lager brewed by Zagrebačka Pivovara in Zagreb, Croatia. It contains the standard 5% alcohol and comes in a 500mL can which proclaims Ožujsko to be "Most Favourite Croatian Beer".

A crystal clear brew, Ožujsko is moderately carbonated. It has very little head, which is a bit disappointing for an otherwise attractive beer. However, this beer was within a couple of days of the best before date listed on the can, so it might not have been at it's best. It had the standard grass and grain aroma. The flavour is grainy, but also pleasantly bitter. Really, it's fairly full-bodied for a pale lager.

I'd like a bit more carbonation, but again, I suspect that might have had something to do with its rapidly approaching expiry date. It still tasted pretty good, but I bet a fresher can would have been better. Not a particularly memorable beer, but good if you're thirsty and craving a lager.

Rating; 6.5 out of 10.
