Lviviske Svitle (Light) is a light lager with pure taste and aroma of fermented malty beverage with pleasant bitterness of hop. It has great energizing properties and perfectly slakes thirst perfectly.

seymour (1830) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JAN 9, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2013 Tasted from 1 pt .9 fl oz brown bottle into nonic glass. It poured a perfectly clear golden color with everlasting white fluffy foam and sticky lace. Aromas of grainy pils malt, maybe some adjunct corn but not unpleasant, faint resiny hops, finer quality than most mainstream lagers, but still weak overall. Flavor was light, refreshing, surprisingly smooth, higher than expected noble hops bitterness, mostly neutral but balanced and easy to drink. Light body, high carbonation. Still tasted decent as it warmed. Can’t find an complete online description, but it’s definitely a finer beer than their typical "Premium."

Rune (10649) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2012
500ml bottle, by the courtesy of Gaute. Frothy white head leaving spotty lacing behind. Clear, straw coloured body. Very modest smell of skunky hops and grainy malts to the nose. Sweet hops in flavour added by a grainy touch. Mild bittersweet endnotes. Clean in the mouth. Thin. About drinkable (shared with Finn, Tromsø 18.07.2012).

Really not too bad. Poured cold from my friends fridge here in Kyiv. Has a nice, large, foamy, frothy, off-white head that lasts a long time and lots of lace. Color is a clear yellow with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is super mild, beery, and not much else. Flavor is lots better with some malt, bitter, and carbonic tang nicely balanced up front but a little slightly unpleasant lingering sweetness. Body and carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, clean, and drinkable. I’ll have another.

Flaske 0,5l påspandert av og delt med Rune under middag i WC74 18 Jul 12. Lysebrun/gul. Høyt kremaktig skum hvor mye henger igjen på glassveggen. Forsiktig søt fruktaroma. Smaken kunstig frukt. Svakt syrlig ettersmak.

bunget (769) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2012
500ml bottle. Pale yellow body, medium white fluffy head with low retention. Kinky aroma: grassy-watery, cereals and some hops. Light flavor, pretty dry, grassy. A little too sour at the end.

tomer (2733) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - APR 28, 2012
Bottle, medium long lasting head, clear golden colour, strong honey aroma, flavour of honey drops with a light herbal bitterness and just touch of fruity sournees. Well made and quite drinkable but much too sweet.

Benzai (12338) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2012
50cl bottle @ home. Gift from a colleague, shared with Joes. Clear goldeen color, decent sized white head that dininishes fairly quickly. Smell some malts and a weird sourness in the background. Taste is malts, lightly bitter and again some sort of sourness. Low body, low to medium carbo.

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.
