2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
My first Ukraine rating. Funky, skunky monkey smell. Pale goleden/yellow with a Ukraine sized snowdrift of a head on it. Watery and vaguely cereal laced. Nice steady gas release, but not much flavor or body. Yet I could see it being a good warm weather quencher lawnmower beer.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled, now brewed by Chernigivskiy Pivokombinat (4.7%).
Bright golden. Neutral aroma. Sweet with notes of cereals and peas. Clean, hard mouthfeel. Useless.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Good label, nice big bottle, gold. Brown bottle, not green like the pic here. Tart and grainy lager aroma. I agree that you should drink this cold. Tart malty flavor with some astringency. Has some character, but not the best beer in the world. Zippy carbonation with some ale-like qualities in the finish. This is a marketing dream-name: Bartender: "What'll it be?"
Patron: "I'll have a Taller Beer, please."
Announcer: "They always go for the taller beer."

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A non-dry, yet crisp pilsener that's a touch rough. It's flavor smacks of the Eastern European/Soviet taste that's rather malty for a lager. Moderate fizz. Lacks the delicious yeastiness of some of the Baltic States lagers.
