Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours a clear bright golden colour, with an initially creamy white head. Aroma of grain and malt. Slightly oily texture, and medium/low carbonation. Nothing revolutionary, however quite enjoyed this.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Typical lager nose with grain, cereals, a bit of corn and slight sugar cane accents.
Visual is gold / straw with an extreme transparency. Thick creamy head, long lasting, sticking well to glass and leaving some traces.
Taste: A light and watery texture is surprising the taste buds to start with; but the liquid has a good carbonation though. The taste profile is located within a cereal sugar fermentation basis but somehow too discreet. Dispite it’s lack of taste, it is indeed a very refreshing beer mainly because of it’s good carbonation.
Manque évident de saveur mais facilement buvable et rafraichissante.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It has been over nine years since I rated a beer from the Ukraine and I said to myself that it’s high time I got back on that bandwagon so here I am with a bottle of Lvivske 1715. I don’t know why it is called Lvivske 1715 but I presume it is the number that the letters in the name of the town the brewery is in would come out to in Roman numerals. (The town is called LVIV. If ever a city was to be mistaken for a Rocky sequel, it’s this one.) My bottle is thankfully brown glass rather than the green pictured here on RateBeer and therefor the scent hitting upon my nose as this bottle opened was legitimately non-terrible. The beer itself is a crystal clear orange color and is headless aside from a few errant bubbles here and there. I’d say this beer is more or less a Pilsner style with some elements almost veering towards an American craft brewed lager. It is plenty hoppy and even has a small bit of a citrus character. This is maybe just ever so slightly too sweet but is still rather nice to drink so no major complaints there. It finishes with a lingering bit of hops that seems to beg another sip. I am no expert but this is definitely the best Ukrainian beer I’ve tried.

My expectations for this beer were pretty low. Typical euro lager? Check. Green bottle to let the sun in? Check. Slightly sour aroma? Check. Watery flavour with a sprinkle of hops? Taking shelf space at my local liqour store that could’ve been put to better use? Check. Avoid.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Clear golden, first fluffy then filmy head. Yeasty aroma with notes of grain. The palate of medium body & thin texture. A remarkable amount of sourness & some sweet notes in taste. The finish shows soft bitter. So does the aftertaste. Not bad at all. A bit too sour to me.
