2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle pours a clear golden color with average white head and a bit of lacing. Aroma is skunky: grains, boiled vegetables, hay and bread. Taste is on the bitter side with a slight metallic finish. Body is light with average carbonation. Overall not as bad as I thought it might be (given some other eastern European lagers I’ve tried), and OK for the style.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear pale copper with a 1" head that lasts awhile and low swirls of lace. Aroma typical of low-key lagers: straw and dry earth. The taste is small, but correct: malt cut by straw hops and carbonation. No change through finish. Drinkable.

INteresting. Some poeple may beliueve or say Obolon beers are simple or regular within the eastern countries in Europe. Is not that they are real issue but taste decent and are easy to drink. This one was kinda sweet and soft.
