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

Pale yellow/gold with a decent white head. Light grassy & grainy aromas - similar to other Ukrainian and Polish beers. Rather bitter. Light-bodied. Has a bit of a metallic taste.

Dacrza (693) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - NOV 7, 2015
DATE TASTED: November 7, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: 22 oz. pilsner... OCCASION: catching up after a whirlwind two days in Bloomsburg... APPEARANCE: a mostly clear, highly effervescent, golden body--the strange haze that misted in the bottle has been dispelled at the pour; the white two-finger head simmers to a frothy, half-finger, bubbly ring... AROMA: amazingly powerful--detected well away from the table--and beefy, with some funky warehouse and yeasty dough that overpowers the soft hops... PALATE: initially fizzy and active, but the buttery end softens the contact and resolves into an oily exit; light to medium-bodied... the finish fades apologetically... TASTE: due to the rice, not much of a profile...what does exist is a grainy, malty bitterness that is more pronounced than the label suggests; buttery notes also soften the experience... more likable than anticipated... OVERALL: as lagers from the Soviet bloc go, this is agreeable though uncharacteristically soft --the often harsh bitterness from this style is absent, and in its place is a slightly floral, reasonably satisfying lager...consider me pleasantly surprised ...

Cervesa lleugera i fàcil de beure, la seva funció és refrescar. Cerveza ligera y fácil de beber, su función es la de refrescar.

Pudelek (201) - Gůrny Ślůnsk / Oberschlesien, - AUG 31, 2015
Kolor ciemnosłomkowy, klarowne. Piana niewielka. Aromat prawie niewyczuwalny. W smaku bardzo przeciętne z niewielką goryczką - ot, można wypić, lecz nic specjalnego.

cmacklin (516) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 22, 2015
500ml bottle. (5% ABV) Pours a clear yellow with a large, long lasting white head that laces. Sweet malty aroma with fruit, grain and hay. Mild fruity flavour with malt, bread, grain and a mild, grassy, bitter finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Boring but thirst quenching.

rikstar (1646) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2015
05l.blik in tallinn bij de supermarkt. Pils met graan en ijzer smaak, minder zoet dan verwacht, toch had er wel wat meer diepgang in de smaak mogen zitten.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. This is another green glass skunk smelling/tasting beer from Europe. The best part of this beer is its appearance. It is a pale euro lager color with a medium body.

Pdubyah (553) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 19, 2015
This is summer up as ’soft and medium’ by the brewer and who am I to disagree. It’s just quaffing beer with little taste and not a lot of things to trip up the unwary.

soltys (91) - POLAND - JUN 10, 2015
W zapachu lekki miodzik, bardzo lekki słód, i alkohol. Smak - strasznie wodniste, jak jakiś light, wyczuwalny też taki jałowy słód i ta miodowość, kolor - badosłomkowy. Piana znika błyskawicznie jak w Pepsi, chociaż... zostaje na parę minut grubopęcherzykowa obrączka. Nie wiem jak to piwo może nazywać się Premium - to jest jakiś rozcieńczony typowy lager.
