2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma is slightly grainy, slightly appley. A little sulphury and a little malty. Pretty bland. Nice golden colour, but that’s about it.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
500ml bottle provided by Gaute and shared at a drinking session with Finn. Comes with a golden neck and pours a frothy white head and pale golden body. Good spotty lacing. Lightly toasted grain to the nose. Clean tasting of sweet malts and sweet wheaty fruits. Mild and short-lived bitter endnotes. Watered impression on the swallow. Clean tasting. Drinkable (Tromsø, 11.09.2012).

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Biggish coarse white head leaves coarse lacing. Cloudy yellow body. Yeasty, mealy perfumy aroma with malty notes. Mild, soft fruity grassy hoppy taste with mealy malty notes, and a kind of dryish edge. Dry, fruity aftertaste. Nice, and extremely drinkable. (0.5l draft at Robert Doms beer house, Lviv. I think this an unfiltered version of their Premium, served at special locations in Lviv only. Dzyga in Lviv also has it, on tap.)

Flaske 0,5l. Spandert av og delt med Rune og vasken under ratesammenkomst hos ham 11 Sep 12. Lys gyldenbrun. Høyt kremaktig skum. Beskjeden aroma av høy&gress. Smaken er søt frukt. Lite kullsyre. Litt kjedelig.

Mittelgelbe Farbe, trüb mit ordentlich Schaum. Hefig-malziges Aroma. Dünner Antrunk. Malzig, hefig, leicht säuerlich-fruchtig, verhaltene, bittere Hopfennote. Ok Pivo!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Hmm. Let this one warm a bit and poured with a huge, fluffy, frothy, foamy, billowy, off-white head that slowly settles and lots of lace ( foaming agents?). Color is a clear yellow with a few bubble trails that slowly give up. Aroma is some skunk, spice. Flavor’s like nose, a little grain, sweetish, slight carbonic tang, little bitter, no hop flavor per se. Body is a tad thin, carbonation a tad flat. Finish is like flavor, too long for being as inconsequential as it is and forgettable.

Bottle from Kiosk near Billa- Kiev. This is another decent Ukranian live beer. They do these pretty well.
