Nice lager, but taste largely varies from barrel to barrel. Sometimes the taste is excellent (especially from tap), sometimes it’s very plain.

oh6gdx (23000) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 10, 2006
Plastic bottle. Dark golden colour, mediumsized bubblyish foamy head. Aroma is like stomach acids (the stuff you start puking after having puked everything else out). A bit mash and malts in aroma too. Flavour is extremely strong for a beer with 4,4% alcohol. At first very metallic, then into harsh grassy malts. A bit hoppiness in finish, strong grassy malts in aftertaste. Extremely full, too bad the aroma and flavour are not that good...

mabjork (677) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 10, 2006
Plastic Bottle. Medim sized bubbly and foamy white head. The aroma is acidic with hints of mash. The flavour has a very strong taste of metal and it has a hoppy presence. Much more than i epected from this beer, still I do not need to drink it again. Thanx tbone_

(listed @Õlletorn, Tallinn as: "Chernigov Svitce")
Golden lager color, creamy small white head. Lively carbonation. Hoppy aroma. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, slightly grassy and hoppy (saaz hops?). Light late bitterness.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 25, 2003
ABV crawled down from 4.6% to 4.4%. Pale yellow with medium head. Pleasant malty and sweet flavors, hoppy aroma and dry finish. Good standard lager.

larsniclas (6148) - Billdal, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2003
Rather disgusting one. A beer should not be allowed to taste from salmiak. But the potato-waitress was in a bad mood...

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2003
Golden color. Perfume aroma. Some plastic flavor with notes of..."salmiak". Tends to have some smikiness.

Good color with a tasty body. Slightly dry after-taste. Good with foods!

Oddly for a Ukrainian beer, this has no off-flavours. Especially odd considering that this is not the most modern brewery on earth. The beer does has some haze issues, but otherwise has a full, malty, grassy-hoppy palate - surprisingly good lager.
