2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Looks and smells pretty bad. The bubbles rise for a very long time in this brew and may give it that little extra flavor that makes in an above average lager in taste - the most important area.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Golden lager with a light head, the aroma is malty and dry and the flavour is metallic and malty. Overall a reasonable refreshing beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale yellow/golden body with an average white head. Light resin hops in the taste, also some grainy malt, light in body and not a lot of anything else.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(bottle) Clear and pale golden colour with a small, fast diminishing frothy white head. Weak malty aroma. Light bodied, sweet grainy taste and a short slightly grassy hoppy finish with notes of cardboard.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Ok for a pale lager, but a bit dull. Low head, goes off quite quickly. Flavor a bit sweet.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crystal clear, yellow, with massive airy head. Very light on the aroma, but there is a hint of a Saaz-lick. The flavor is surprisingly light for a Eurolager ... light malts, but grassy and a tad earthy, despite its more watery consistency. Side by side, this and the "lager" are good examples of some of the better main-line beers in Europe.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Strong, hoppy aroma. Taste is hoppy and pleasant but a little dissapointing from a premium lager - little kick to it and not very carbonated.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is actually not that bad. I get some malts and hops in there. Flavor is smooth and bland but the adjuncts stay away from this one. Very easy to drink. Of the 3 Obolon’s I have had this is by far the best. Stay with the premium!!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Quite pale with an impressingly huge and stable head. Very pronounced bitterness making this quite a fresh experience. But the body is very light and watery and hence you end up with a somewhat unbalanced lager. 061004
