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

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2005
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.

piscator34 (2152) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 24, 2005
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.

Frank (3470) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2005
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.

Dorqui (2148) - Brescia, ITALY - DEC 30, 2004
Little dense and enough evanescente foam. Yellow color, limpid but little moved. No particularitity. Drinkable and in the sufficient complex.

I’m not that fond of eastern euro lagers to begin with-compared with some of the Baltic lagers I’ve 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.
