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

I don’t know how this one became labelled the ’Premium’, the standard ’Lager’ was easily a more flavoursome and balanced offering. Poured into a weissbier glass, a short soapy white head formed atop a clear, pale gold body, and left a little legs. Very soft and slightly unclean, egg yolk and honey malt nose, with little else. Very subtle and almost delicate palate, very light bodied, but not watery, with a medium level of carbonation. Corny, tonic water and cordial flavours with a mix of grainy malt, powdery, grassy hops and brine. Finish is crisp, salty and has only a little husky malt for length. Not the ’Premium’ I expected, and it really didn’t excite the taste buds, even as a light refresher. I would stick with the Green label over the Gold (50cL Bottle, 23/08/05, Int’l Beer Shop, W. Leederville)

A much better beer than the same brewer’s lager. The finish isn’t as metallic and the hop-malt balance is more integrated. Bright gold with a skinny rim of foam that quickly departed. Generally malty aroma also has cereals and faint lemony hops. The mouthfeel is rounded and the finish doesn’t jar the way the lager did. There’s nothing terribly remarkable about the flavour profile - sweetish malt initially followed by a fairly sharp bitterness - but overall, this is a much better pale lager.

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.

RichardGretton (4614) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2005
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.

bluevegie (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 2, 2005
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.

MoritzF (9286) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUN 22, 2005
(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.

Ok for a pale lager, but a bit dull. Low head, goes off quite quickly. Flavor a bit sweet.

Braudog (6253) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2005
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.

kwik-lime (1647) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2005
Strong, hoppy aroma. Taste is hoppy and pleasant but a little dissapointing from a premium lager - little kick to it and not very carbonated.

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!!
