2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
19th June 2014: to celebrate England’s defeat in the world cup again I decided to have a Ukrainian lager. 500ml green bottle from ’Beers of Europe’. Poured three times into an old Schoss Brau stemmed tulip. Looks like a Pale Lager, smells like a Pale Lager and tastes like a Pale Lager. A bit sweet and almost odourless, just like a Pale Lager. Dry slightly bitter finish, almost refreshing, just like a Pale Lager.

Sorry Ukraine you’re getting a bad deal with the Russian assholes raping your tturf and this beer is pretty damn lame and soulless. I bought this 500ml @ a crappy eastern Euro food store because I live in a free democratic country. This beer smells of ass, it’s been in a green bottle so that is gonna happen. Some bready Malt sweeteNess. A very boring palate too

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks kerenmk. Hazy straw color. Aroma of hay, cereals and light grassy notes. Sweetish corny flavor with drier finish with faint bitterness. Rather light-bodied.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours yellow, clear,medium durable white head, good lacing. Aroma: malts and grass. Typical to industrial lager beers. Not much taste in this one. Slightly malty with light bitterness.
Too high carbonation and too watery body makes it nothing else, than another boring and rather weak pale lager.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
500ml bottle from supermarket in Vyborg. Clear gold colour, medium fizzy white mostly dissipating head, fair lacing. Aroma of bread, grain and floral hops, a hint of alcohol. Taste is initially fairly sweet and slightly acidic turning into a short bittersweet finish with a slightly alcoholic feel. Pretty basic East-European lager that should have a bit more taste so that the alcohol is covered.
