3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 mL bottle: Another great pale lager roasted by beer snobs. Come on! Not as good as Svytury’s Ekstra (Lithuanian) but still decent. Tastes more crisp. Hops not strong, malt is little stronger but very clean in mouthfeel & finish. This is a really smooth beer. My pint almost disappeared! Drink it fast (or pretty much dead after 20 min) and in hot weather or washing down those salty chasers.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
50cl bottle, Shelburne. Surprisingly cloudy for the style, very little head. Smells similar to low quality american lager - corn/rice. Very thin in the mouth, very little carbonation, sour (not bitter) with a lingering sourness. Not great.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I kind of like this beer, but I’m Ukrainian, so I might be biased. It is a relatively light beer with a little bitter flavor. Not really big on the palate thing. Clear body, one complaint I have though is that it goes flat far too fast. 15 minutes later you will have a completely and worse beer. Drink it quick.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Smells like . . . not good. Hay and mildew. Hay with mildew on it. Quite pale in colour. Voluminous head. Not a lot of taste - Pale lager, so I guess it’s not supposed to. Malt is the most obvious flavour. Corn? Didn’t get much bitterness. Not offensive, but nothing special. Better than most macro pale lagers, I suppose.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small white head; pale yellow body with some ongoing carbonation. Grainy, smoky aroma. Taste is deep smoky grain with strong grassy notes, quite bitter. Harmonic, with fruity, citric notes. Chalky, bitter aftertaste. Quite a lot of taste, but still light, drinkable and refreshing. Good! (0.5l bottle.)

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle on a boat trip in Kiev, Ukraine. Pale yellow with a fizzy white head. Faint corn and grass aroma. Flavor is light but there is some clean grassy noble hop essence to it. Could have been worse, considering it was given to us warm.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale yellow, little head. Not much in the way of aroma, taste is a bit hoppy, little wheaty, but not very strong. Not great but perfectly drinkable.
