UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 This stuff is awful. Has some flavor to it, but I wish it didínt. Tasted like skunk, metal, and water.

Bottle. Small white fizzy head that mostly diminished with poor lacing, carbonated, transparent, and a pale yellow hue. Aroma was malty, skunky, and some hops. Flavor was malty and some light hops. Tingly palate. Light body. Nothing special with this one.

Iíve tried all three Obolon pale lagers now and although quite similar to one another, I liked this one the best I think. Clear gold, moderate head, decent lace retention. Grassy hop aroma. Classic european pale lager palate with mild grassy hop notes and a dry finish. I like this style of pale lager, but there is nothing extra-special about this one.

Pour is a clear yellow with a white head. Aroma is non-existant with nothing jumping out at you. Flavor is very sour and bitter with some malts in there. Ok for a eastern Euro lager but nothing to go out and look for.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pale beer, light head. The aroma is quite malty, dry and slightly fruity. The flavour is quite refreshing, dry and slightly sour. Overall not half as bad as the other ratings suggest.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Golden colour with a frothy, fast diminishing, white head. Aroma has corn and hops and is a touch metallic. Nothing much going on in the taste department; some fruit, some hops, slight bitterness. Thin mouthfeel, but pretty crisp and clean.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2006 Very similar to Obolon Premium, but this oneís got a better smell and more solid head. Tastes almost identically, maybe more smooth. Pretty decent, well balanced.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The third in a very moderate trilogy of lagers from this Ukrainian brewer. Pale gold, 1cm head. Nothing especially offensive or commendable in the aroma: lemony hops and lots of buttered corn.
Thin and sweet intiially, developing a tangy bitter finish. Typical lager body. Iím not sure which hop they use, but it has delivered the same astringent note in all three lagers. Quenching, sessionable, forgettable. (500ml bottle, IBS, Perth)

(Bottle 50 cl) Clear, fully golden with a small, white head. Rather dry with a somewhat ashy, short bitterness. No real pleasure. 300805
