Fľaša. Tmavo jantárová farba, pena okamžite padla. Vôňa sladká karamelová, medová, toffiffe. V chuti pražené slady, karamel, prázdne telo a prílišná sladkosť.

YantarCoast (133) - Moscow, RUSSIA - OCT 22, 2014
0.5 litre bottle from a local Moscow grocery store. Surprised to see Ukrainian beer on the shelves. Probably just cleaning out inventory. This one pours dark brown with a tan head that disappears pretty quickly. Aroma of caramel, doughyness. Taste of caramel, vanilla. Very smooth. One of my favourite Ukrainian beers so far.

zvsn (634) - ISRAEL - OCT 15, 2014
Bottle (500ml). Slightly hazy amber-brown with a small head that disappears in a minute. Aroma of caramel, honey, toffee, light roast. Sweet but not cloying, caramel malts, toasted bread, mild hoppy bitterness in the finish. Rather light bodied, watery texture. Not bad.

beer4eternity (206) - Tauranga, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 12, 2014
500ml bottle. Good looking clear, opulent deep amber hue, with a large light beige mostly diminishing head and light lacing. Strong malty caramel, brown sugar, leather, raspberry aromas. Moderately sweet, very light bitterness. Oily texture, prickly carbonation, medium body. My first Ukraine beer, thanks to Marcia & Brendon for the gift

heyden (45) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 6, 2014
Light nose, slight maltiness.deep velvet colour. Interesting taste, not what I was expecting. Sweet and sour. Cherry fruit, somewhat barnyard funk and sharp. Minimal bitterness. An interesting beer, not my favorite however.

waiake (110) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 28, 2014
500ml bottle, pleasing malty caramel aroma, medium bitterness, lively semi sweetish taste that is sort of flat but still satisfying, much better than expected

Bamsen78 (3234) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle.Pours clear dark ruby copper brown with small off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel and some other sweet stuff, with notes of yeast. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, with bitter, hoppy notes and estery touches. Rough, estery finish with sweet-sourish touches. High carbonation. An OK Dunkel but nothing really special.
