4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Interesting. Quite an indescribable un-lagery flavor, reminding me perhaps of a lighter blond ale. Bitterness around the edges of my tongue. Tastes like maybe it’s more than 5%. Classic lager appearance, pale gold with a magnificent pile of head that unfortunately dissipates rapidly (but not completely.) And another Cyrillic label for the collection.

Nice head, but of a skunky smell. Smooth flavor with very little after taste. Nice and smooth, but nothing particularly notable.

Dry taste with a subtle hint of hops. Actually a good beer with foods. Very satisfying on a HOT day!

very tasty brew with a subtle ’dry’ taste that is an excelletn accompaniment for seafood & fowl. Good with pizza as well. Good color & body.

big head that dissapates quickly and leaves little ’head-islands’ floating at the top. very slight hops, and there was a kind of sourness that was not unpleasant.

Huge head from the pour. Slight maltiness in the the body, and I mean very slight. Little to no hoppiness throughout. Drinkable.

Big and frothy at first. No real taste to speak of. At least it didn’t taste bad. Smooth, I guess. Mine was a few too many months old, but, hey, Ukraine is a distinct country for my countries stat.

Hops, yeast scent. Light gold, frothy head, at first. Strong bitter taste. Not very pleasant.

Not to bad. The bottle that I had had a smell that I can’t even describe. It wasn’t a good smell. Overall it was a nice pale colour and it had a very unique aftertaste. A decent beer that I probably won’t rush out to buy again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light gold. Slightly hazy. Fat, pocky, tight white head. Light carbonation. Light grainy aroma, some grass and floral hops. Crisp body, lightly sweet and nicely hopped. Bitter and herbal with a spicy kick. Solid lacing. Easy drinking. Light metallic edge fades. Tasty but loses some oomph as it sits and warms. A very decent brew.
