4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Christ, what an amazing beer. My friend and I taste-tested the entire Chernihivske line-up on an overnight train to Kamyanets-Podilskiy from Kyiv, and the Bila Nich was the winner by far. Basically a Blue Moon-esque ersatz wit with some dunkel elements. Unique and awesome.

500ml bottle. Hazy brown color. Small off-white head, stays. Oranges, cake, sweet, minerals in aroma. Chocolate cake with orange essence dominates flavor. I kind of like it.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle (?, Tallinn) "You Want Some Of This, Beach" tasting
Super treacly sweet cakey aroma, some gentle raisins and mixed peel. Very dark, tight tan head. Kinda papery and thin malts, some sweetness, but not as full as I expected from the supersweet aroma. Malt centered, obviously, just a hint of the mixed peel, and all the raisinís gone. Slightly slick palate. Didnít like this most of the time, but as it warmed (?!?! It was 6C out, it should have stayed cold) it did fill out a little, and wasnít so watery and bad.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle from Vyborg, hazy dark brown colour, medium beige head. Aroma of coriander and bread with notes of caramel, resin and plum, taste is kind of sweet & sour. Sour finish, not more than a hint of hops, thin body. Aroma is decent, but didnít really like the taste or feeling, probably wouldíve been decent overall if made using actual dark malts instead of a combination of light ones and dark colourant and way less sugar.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark brown. Brief beige head. Light watery body. Aroma of caramel & spice. Mostly sweet taste. It leaves a poor impression. Ever more if you would study the chemicals that they put into it. The average rating of its beer is really absurd.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown with small off-white foam head. Aroma is kind of funny, smelly sock with caramel. Taste is strange to, cannot quite place this, but did not drink the bottle. aftertaste is like eating swetty socks. Strange beer. (St. Petersburg 201305)
