It is highly stable beer with special freshness and saturation. It has a distinct taste and nice bitterness. In brewing of Obolon Premium rice is used beside traditional beer components. Due to its soft flavour and medium content of solids Obolon Premium is one of the most popular beers. 12P

It is a refreshing beer but not so much taste.

Gold colour. Slightly darker colour than the Obolon lager but otherwise pretty much indistinguishable. But then it was the end of a very long day. Moderately malty. I agree with Dan on the vaguely Marzen-like character. Bottled at the Gateway, Leicester (RB Leicester pub crawl). Good work by Dan to identify which Obolon beers we had.

Bottle at the Gateway, Leicester (during RB Leicester crawl). So here we are, in the very dregs of the evening if you will, and faced by 3 bewilderingly foreign Obolon products. This (I think) was the first - certainly it was a 5.2% lager. Golden, with a frothy head, and a clean malty aroma. Strong malt flavour - some Marzen qualities, notably baked bean. Clean with plenty of crystal water flavour. I have a score, but no prose verdict.

Medium yellow in colour with aromatic notes of light malt, lemon, and sulfur. It has a slightly grainy flavor and a light texture. Easy drinking and not too bad, but definitely not worth the "imported lager" price tag.

Hazy yellow, nice head though. Nose is dust and cobwebs with a hint of continental hops. A little bit of sweetness with a touch of hops in the finish. Not wretched but definetly a bit on the old side. What can you expect from the Ukraine though?

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JAN 3, 2005
Bottled. Pale golden colour, small head. Slightly sweetish, grainy aroma. Grainy, slightly hoppy, sweet taste with a slightly metallic tinge. Not a drain pour, but I could do without it.

Little dense and enough evanescente foam. Yellow color, limpid but little moved. No particularitity. Drinkable and in the sufficient complex.

Iím not that fond of eastern euro lagers to begin with-compared with some of the Baltic lagers Iíve had this is not bad. Reading other reviews i have concluded that quality control is a problem in some situations, my bottle was quite good though. Malty,grainy,somewhat hoppy, refreshing and not too demanding.

Very pale gold, totally clear; fluffy white head, as whipped eggwhite. Nose: chaff, chalk,... Precious little nose. Ever so slightly sourish taste, surrounding grain/pale malts. Finish is a bit toasted and grassy-hay. Watery texture, light bodied, empty, gassy MF. If this is Premium, compared to the Lager, I dread the day they bring out a Luxus...

500ml green bottle. Not too much different than their Lager. Poured a shade darker, cloudy gold. A bit less grass/skunk aroma, more sweet malts, a bit fruitier, otherwise itís the same.
