1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. A gusher producing a clear, golden body and a minimal white head. Can’t complain about the gushing, the salesman said it was to expect and that it should be like that. Strange. The aroma has a buttery, wort-like dominance, with some hoppyness and a good dash of hay. The flavor is quite buttery and sweet, some fruityness too, and with a good dash of hay. Medium body. Sort of dead in the end, with hay and some wort. Well, not my favorite bee, not even my favorite Ukrainean beer. A strange one indeed. 110420

Hazy blonde and with a fair amount of carbonation. Pillowy head. Aroma is fairly clean yeastiness. This is a fairly yeasty brew with a light maltiness and a hint of juiciness in the finish.
