Golden color,well carbonated,small white head that faded pretty fast.Malty sweet smell with mild hints of hop's.Malty taste with a strange taste that almost seems a bit metallic,mild hopping.the after taste is mildly malty sweet with a slight hop taste.The after taste is hard to describe malty for sure but theres an almost medicinal side to it as well.Could just be a bad bottle.This is definately nothing special.

Memoroes of my time in Kyiv. The best of the lot of them and actually harder to get than the others. It has a clear and fresh finish with medium hop character. Not a bad lager.

After trying rather boring bottled and canned versions I finally tasted the draught one, which turned to be a real classic pils: ideal foamy head, golden color, malty palate with hoppy dry aftertaste.

Murky looking yellow. Quarter inch white foamy head sits on top. Some dough in the nose. Interesting taste for a lager. Pretty much the tastes you would expect to find but with more sweetness and less off putting bitterness. Highly fizzy.

My grandparents were born in the Ukraine, and being of Ukranian stock I had to try this one. It smelled like skunk cabbage and tasted like it, too. Ukranians can't brew beer. This stuff should stay in Kiev.

Simply a horrible beer. I tried it on the whim of a Ukranian buddy. He wouldnt" admit it but he didnt" even like it. It"s a smelly, slimy tasting beer. It"s flavor is gagging. On a side note, it gave me the shits the next day.

Tastless and very carbonated. Kind of bitter. Almost not drinkable. It is the only Ukrainian beer, I sampled. If it is one of the best, then...

Pretty boring and tasteless. I didn’t like it too much.
