Clear yellow with a white head and some sediment(?!). Malt aroma. Taste is sweetish malt with a decent bitterness for a eastern-euro lager. Dunno about the sediment though.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2013 I had another Lvivske beer earlier and I was astonished at the curious satisfaction it brought me. This one comes in a brown 500ml bottle, my bottle is simple "Lvivske Lager" Pours a pale golden, really like any other Euro Pale Lager, the head is large and white and leaves some very elegant lacing. The smell is rather bland, a subtle inkling of hops, mostly malt and mineral water, still clean and refreshing. The taste is surprisingly good for the abv. It basically tastes like a EPL but it has a lot less alcohol than most, and it goes beyond that by being a subtly tasty beer. It is mild, refreshing, there isn’t a sign of corn. Very nice.

0,5 l bottle a a gift.
Superpale yellow beer with a minimal white fizzy head that went away fast. Minimal beer aroma and flavor, minimal malt and grassy hop. Dull.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2009
Bottle. It pours a clear, golden body under a small, white head. A bit weak on the nose, grainy with quite nice hops. Grainy flavor with a nice hoppy bitterness. Decent bitterness in the finish too. Medium body. A decent beer, easy drinkable, but also rather boring. 090829

dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2008
hazy yellow color, slight white head that quickly dissipates, very fizzy looking, with tiny bubbles lacing the side of glass. nose of grain, corn. good corn flavor, not syrupy, bolder than expected in a 2.7% abv beer. light bodied, fizzy mouth feel, dry finish. enjoyable for a light beer. single bottles of this availablr from ’binny’s beverage depot’ in orland park. my label calls this beer "lvivske pale beer", which is not listed on the brewer’s website as a variety....based on the 3.7% abv, i deduce that this is the same beer brewed as ’svitle’ by the brewer.

Medium coarseish white head. Yellow body with carbonation. Light mealy malty aroma. Dry light malt and apple taste with mealy grassy hop notes. Chalky mouthfeel. Dry grassy papery aftertaste. Not bad. (0.5l bottle in an outdoor cafe next to Palats Pototskiy, Lviv.)
