3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice lager, but taste largely varies from barrel to barrel. Sometimes the taste is excellent (especially from tap), sometimes it’s very plain.

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.

Can sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks DSG for being so selfless and helping me achieving the 100oth rating milestone in such a respectable and appropriate way! Clear, golden with bubbly white head. Artificial malty and a little H2O aroma, faint corn too. Sweetish, malty taste. Refreshing, light-bodied, softish fizz, sweetish finish. Not bad at all.
