3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A typical European lager. Bitter taste, and a slight aftertaste. Better than many imported lagers, and certainly better than most east European beers, with the exception of Czech beers. Not quite as good as the other well-known Ukrainian beer, Slavutych.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thin head which dissipates quickly. Ok carbonation. Typically skunky, malty aroma of european lagers. Color is a medium gold and is slightly hazy. Flavor is strange. Some malt with a decent amount of hops. Has sort of a stale cornbread taste. Who knows. Finish is probably the best part with an ok bitter bitterness and a slight hops aftertaste. Not really worth the trouble but better than some imported lagers.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Crystal clear golden colour with trillions of small bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass and a thin white head to top the beer. Arome of metal, peaches, canned corn, light hops and even a slight grassyness. Light-bodied; Strong assertive metal character mixed with the usual malt and light hop character of the style. Some slight sweetness comes out later in the taste, but not much. Aftertaste fairly bland and common for the style, nothing profound but a bit of malt and some metal. Overall, not really worth drinking, unless you wanted to try something from the Ukraine, which is what I wanted to do! I bought this 500 mL bottle from Beers of the World in Rochester, New York and sampled it on 08.December.2003.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma is very sweet with notes of yeast, hops, and grass - somewhat weird. The color is orange and it has a beutiful head. The flavor is sweet and somewhat like the aroma yeasty, malty, grainy, and hoppy. It has an OK bitterness. The body is somewhat thin. This is an international lager with a little more taste than most - but still boring.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours with a one-finger white head that fades slowly and leaves good lace. A golden color. Nose has a hint of skunkiness maybe it is because of the green bottle. Starts hoppy/bitter, finishes even hoppier and bitter. Very good carbonation. Light to medium bodied. Remarkably similar to the lager$1.90 for 500ml. The ABV is 5.2%.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
There is nothing all that special about this beer as nothing really stood out about it in my opinion. It had a small sized white head with fine-large sized bubbles that fully dissipated. The body was clear with lively carbonation with a gold hue. The nose was malty with a tangy and fizzy taste to it. The mouthfeel was smooth, thin, somewhat watery, and it was light-medium bodied. There was no lacing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
malty and slightly woody aroma, golden hue with white head, rich and sweet malt flavour, woody and nutty notes, has a syrupy and medicinal feel to it, malty finish, quite interesting.
