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

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!!

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

Pale golden colour with a thin white head. Malty and sweet aroma with hints of some grain. Malty flavor with a grassy touch.

50 cl can. Pale color and short head. No shouts of joy from here. Tastes a bit of metal...

Bottled. A grassy corny smell to this pale golden lager. The taste is grassy and malty with a lager bite but a bit smoother than some lagers. Relatively refreshing and drinkable.

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?
