1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Boks 500ml. Gave fra djoeye. Veldig lysegulbrun. Lavt skum som raskt blir helt borte. Eplejuiceutseende. Aromen er sřt malt med tillřp til gress. Smaken det samme. Kanskje et hint av eple. Var det eplejuice allikevel? I sřteste laget med en anelse bitterhet i avslutninga.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Another child of modern shameless marketing. Looks like it should. The aroma is very bready of dominant malt. Some hop note at finish. The body is OK though. Could really be worse. Still totally unremarkable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0,5L green bottle, abv5,0, 12’, (bottle and tap too), Obolon-product, supermarket Poltavska Oblast UA.
Pours a white head vanishing with few dots inside the mug.
Golden yellow fine body. Very rich scents of hops, herbs, grass, malts, meadow.
My wife got this on tap at Pusata Xata in Poltava, and I envied her, because I was the driver that day. But I got bottle and can the day after. Gentle taste; hops, grass, malt, well balanced bitterness, sweet malts. Smooth mouthfeel. Moderate aftertaste,
breads, roasted malts, roasted almonds, chestnuts, hints of chocolate.
Overall very nice beer, the only one from Obolon I may buy often.
