Braudog (5627) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAR 28, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2007 Bottle: Very pale and slightly hazy yellow with a poofy white head that very shortly faded into just some lumpy remnants on top. Lightly gristy aroma. The flavor surprised me with a bit of a smoky tinge. I guess the predominate sense is of sweet malt, but that odd peaty smokiness keeps coming back despite and additional presence of lemon.

6 Mar 06 - Light sweet hop aroma. Clear amber colour, OK head and suds lacing. Sweet light malt and simple hop flavour. Hoppy and slightly tangy finish.

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

hotstuff (4069) - Indiana, USA - JAN 20, 2006
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.

DuffMan (6641) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 18, 2005
I’ve 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.

thegreenrooster (3189) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 4, 2005
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.

RichardGretton (4237) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2005
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.

JonMoore (1851) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2005
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.

D (577) - Gdynia, POLAND - SEP 23, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2006 Very similar to Obolon Premium, but this one’s got a better smell and more solid head. Tastes almost identically, maybe more smooth. Pretty decent, well balanced.
