A good free alcoholbeer I thougd but after inspection I found out it is a light beer with 5,3 percent alcohol. It tastes good with a bit bitter after. Drunk it on my daughters Leonie anniversary.

Good full flavor with a slight malty aftertaste. Moderate head that sticks around for a while. Very good with seafoods. Bestb when served icy cold.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2007 Rerate Accidentally purchased this again - might as well rate again - a bit better this time around - notice some sweet honey notes - bump up a notch or two. Original 2.0 Killearn Liquors, Tallahassee, Fl - 500 ml bottle. Pours a pale golden with good bubble action and a thin but lacey white head. Aroma is musky and industrial-like. Flavor has some spritzy Saaz hop notes, a little bit of corn and not much else. Turns a bit metallic near the end. The mouthfeel is dry and leaves you thirsty. Not great.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a pale yellow with a small head. Aroma is of malty sweetness. Tastes like a typical light lager. Body is slightly thin. This beer is relatively easy to drink, but it is not my favorite.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Toasted malt, slightly skunky hop aroma. A decent embossed label, green bottle, generic gold lager. Slightly metallic, maybe a bit briny, grain sweetness, a bit of burnt malt. A lingering grain bitterness, medium bodied. Not worth shipping overseas, but it grows on you as you get closer to the bottom of the pint. Wouldn’t want to drink it warm though.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
"High Quality Ukrainian Beer" is the proud claim on the label, and below the logo, "Exclusive"...huh? Okay, so only Obolon makes a Magnat? that’s if we ignore Poland’s Dojidy Magnat, but why would we ever do that? Let’s drink the thing and see how quality and exclusive it is...
Bright golden color, small, thin, quickly diminished head....
Aroma: blase’. comprised of the flavors of cooked corn and nothing more. Blandness, meets awfulness...boring, and not exactly bad, but achingly icky.
Taste: ih...uh...huh...heh...a big bunch of nothing. grainy, and empty. You can drink this, sure, but if you have taste, you’d be easily bored, if not immensely offended. Very light body, little finish, not anything you want sticking on your palate, that’s for sure. Not a substantial beer, and not really a pleasurable beverage at all. The Ukrainian Miller High Life. There you go.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2005 Bottled. Golden colour. Sweet and raw with harsh, fizzy mouthfeel. Adjuncts are obvious, an after a few sips the butyric acid is getting near unbearable. Crap.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
As Eastern European lagers go, this could have been a lot worse. Fizzy gold, head faded away rapidly. Very grainy nose. Flavor consisted of grainy but sweet malts, and a faint but definite floral and grassy finish. Rough palate from carbonation. Not good, but not horrible.

Light gold with small head. Malt extract with faint hop profile. malty start with dry lightly hopped finish. Some nice body and crispness. Not bad.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2007 A yellow beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is sweet malty and so is the flavor leading up to a dry end.
