Roger Wilco in Pennsauken, NJ was out of Baltika 6. While searching the other Eastern Europeans beers came upon Obolon for two bucks in a half liter embossed bottle. Palest Lager, wisp of lemon aroma, corn, grass, and overall clean non-flavorful beer . Adequate thirst quencher while mopping a basement.

Cabbage water aroma which settled to stale cornflake/carboard with hints of brown pears. Taste is the same with some lemon, light bitterness and metallic.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a solid Euro-lager on the lighter side of things. It’s straw yellow w/ a short-lived head of soapy foam. This has a pretty typical array of grassy hop and husky malt flavors. It’s very light bodied and bordering on watery but still has more flavor than most American light beers w/o sacrificing in the way of drink-ability, finishing w/ a solid bite of earthy bitterness. I can get behind a beer like this, light but still fairly flavorful.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500 ml can. A malty nose under the pop tab, nothing wrong with that. Pours a respectable pale lager yellow, under a short fizzy head. Taste starts out pleasantly malty and fizzy, with a bit of bitterness on the tip of the tongue. But then I noticed a growing presence of corn adjunct. In fact, a bit like candy corn. The further I got into it, the less I was able to shake the off taste. With a bottled import, I try to be gentle given the likelihood having sat around for months, getting lightstruck, but in a can, I think I’m closer to the brewer’s intention, and the intention here was clearly another cheap Soviet lager.
