2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12/11 A 0.65 l bottle courtesy of ogivlado, thanks for sharing! It poured pale golden body with medium sized head. Aroma of lemon hops and sugary notes. Flavor was slightly sweet, grainy, bread malty and citrus hoppy. Medium to thin in body with long, slightly acidic and peppery finish. A bit weird and unimpressive, but not really bad.

Bottled 650ml. -from random gas station in Ukraine, shared with Marko and heavy. Yellow coloured, few big bubbles of carbonation, medium sized white head, discreet grainy citric nose. Malty, slight hoppy herbal and odd hint of spices (vanilla) in the finish. All in all nothing special but drinkable.

Ok, continuing with adding the beers from the huge tasting session with ogivlado and heavy (and Maja and Krešimir who aren’t on RB). Let’s see, ah, here we are. This poured a medium sized lasting white head on top of a yellow-golden body. Slightly fishy salty nose, some light pine. Hmm, slightly piney, vaguely bready taste. Ordinary, slightly hop driven lager and yet it ended up better than a string of other lagers we’ve had before. Great.

Quite pale. A little bit cloudy. Ugly. Plastics and random phenols all over the nose. The taste is mainly watery, with some sourness.

This beer is definetly better than most of other Ukrainian beers. It has more taste than average light beer, but the earlier issues were better than the recent ones, as they have started to make it in Kyiv too.

1,3 l PET.
Clear yellow beer with a small fizzy white head that disapeares quickly. Nothing to talk about...Some yeast and some malt, weak body, overcarbonated one, cardboard and some grass. Not my beer...
