1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Rather metallic aroma. Corn and some dry carbonated feeling. Not bad, but not very interesting either. Pale light yellow colour, low head.
Besides, I think Carthago should be destroyed.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma of corn, malt. Pours a dirty golden yellow, thin head, carbonation high. Corn flavour dominates. Metallic aftertaste. I thought the Ukraine was the breadbasket of the region. Don't they grow any barley or hops there?

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.
