Small creamy lasting white head. Clear orangey body with ongoing carbonation. Sweetish vaguely apple-like aroma. Faint and neutral. Bitter, acidic faintly hoppy taste. Some grain and paper. A bit empty. Not bad, but could be better. (0.5l on tap.)

On tap at some little tent in Kiev, Ukraine. Poured golden yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma of some corn, butter toffee, and grass. Flavor has a surprisingly strong grass hop flavor that betrays the fact that this is no ordinary Ukraine swill. It’s almost-drinkable Ukraine swill. Wow. Much better than expected.

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

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...

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 @Őlletorn, 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.

Rather disgusting one. A beer should not be allowed to taste from salmiak. But the potato-waitress was in a bad mood...

Golden color. Perfume aroma. Some plastic flavor with notes of..."salmiak". Tends to have some smikiness.
