2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2005 Sampled at a bar in Kyiv. Ths is exactly what you would expect. Just a light amber coloring with a corn flake aroma and some slight hops. The taste is pleasant enough with bread and some weird grassiness.

What the hell was this?
It was probably on of the skunkiest beers that I have ever had the displeasure of drinking. And I only got half way through before I through it away. Bad aroma, taste and the overall impression is two thumbs down!

poured a light amber color with a very crisp look too it. Had a frothy head too it but if fadded fast perhaps i shook the bottle. Taste was initally sweet with some hops flavoring. beer was very mild but still enjoyable. Better then some other pale lagers.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
(Canned) Pale golden color with almost no head. Slightly sweet-honeyish aroma. Slightly sour flavor with little malt and no hops to speak of until the short, bitter finish. Light to medium-bodied, medium-carbonated, quite watery palate. A below average pale lager - especially by the looks of it. Sure, it will be drinkable after a few cans...

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?
