If Iíve ever had a Ukrainian beer before, I canít remember it. I guess itís time for me to go check my Untappd archives. Iíve never been impressed by Euro Lagers. As a matter of fact, I recall disliking most of them. This 7% monster pours a beautiful, bright golden color with about 2 fingers of head. The aroma is very sweet and citrus-like. Much more pleasant than I would have anticipated. The head dissipates quickly with very little lacing left behind. On the front, the sweetness comes through the second it touches your tongue. There is a faint booziness to it in the middle and back, but at 7% it should definitely be stronger. There is definitely a very strong malt backbone with very little on the hops, which barely make an appearance at the very back. Notes of wet-grain, wheat and honey all throughout. I am still surprised at how sweet this beer is with very little bitterness. There is very little to no aftertaste. And what little there is feels sweet and pleasant. I typically dislike these beers because I canít shake the aftertaste bitterness for a while. This beer definitely does not have that issue. This is something I could drink a few ofÖ quickly, which makes it a pretty dangerous beer! An issue Iíve always had with European beers is that they always seem to be very old when I grab them off the shelf. Because of this, they always taste stale and flat and unpleasant. But my bottle tastes fresh, so I can only assume this is not a problem here. According to Beer Advocate this is discontinued but it is a new product in the areaÖ so who knows. I donít think I would buy this again but it was nice to try it. Probably one of the better examples of a European Lager Iíve had. https://agrainoftruthblog.wordpress.com/20

As my wife pours this down the drain, I no longer wonder why she wanted me to try this first. From the aroma, I should have known not to go further. The appearance is pleasant enough, golden yellow with thick white head. The taste....well, the other reviews say it all. I think my favorite was infected musty stale corn. If your taste buds had nuts, this would be kicking them. Oily, greasy excessively sweet palate. May be good to have in your trunk during the Ukranian winter to refill windshield washer fluid. Do yourself a favor and drink stella artois or dos equis instead.

Fairly thin body and a bit watery but itís not the industrial-runoff, boozy brew that other Ukrainian strong lagers can be...
