Quack-Duck (9060) - Down South, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2011
bottle from a local Mix-Markt. Clear golden yellow, small white head, sizzling sound while the head collapses incredibly quickly. Aroma of dust. Shy malty base, slightly sour and dusty. Oh dear.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2012 (Bottle). ABV 5,2 %. This was something of a surprise. Aroma of malt and fresh slightly spicy hops. The taste is malty with a fine hops aroma, spicy and dry. A real nice and tasty Pilsner-like Lager!

StueyD (1549) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2006
A rather cloudy, yellow amber coloured beer with a weak white head. The nose is a clean dry hoppy aroma with a hint of citrus and a tiny touch of spice. The taste, is again of a spicy hop flavour with the hint of citrusy lemon tone from the nose. has a dry finish on the tongue.

I think this is a better beer than the car of the same (similar) name. This one was not a common denizen of the kiosks like some of the others but was a good beer when available. This had a bit of the premium lable to it, compared to the svetle and other blander versions.

johndoughty (4619) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2003
I was pleasantly surprised by this one-for some reason I expected a bland pils.What I got was a sweetish bronze coloured beer. Quite tangy with a slight biterness. Life is all about surprises and this was one of them.Not a great but worth trying. Like other writters mine was a 5.2 not 4.5.

SilkTork (5467) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2002
Ukraine’s most successful brewery, Obolon is largely owned by the brewery workers, though the Sarmat brewery has recently been forcibly buying up shares. This is decent beer, slightly sweet but with a good malty tang. It’s 5.2% ABV.

Bov (11163) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 8, 2002
clear pale yellow colour, nice foam and lace, malty, grainy and herbal, sweet with a dry slightly bitter and quite unpleasant aftertaste

leaparsons (9271) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2002
Not a bad beer. I was quite surprised really. This pilsner has some taste! Not much in the way of the dryness expected but this is still a relatively pleasant sweet beer. My Zhigul was 5.2% not 4.5%
