2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Pours a golden color. The head fizzes away quickly. There doesn't see to be much carbonation in my bottle. Mild aroma of hops and malts. Nothing distinguished stands out. Taste is Fairly mild, with a bit of malts and a slightly bitter finish. Seems to be kind of smooth.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malt, hop aroma, golden, with a finger of white foam. Pleasing malt at the front, good bitterness follows, malty after taste. Fresh, crisp, nicely carbonated. A very nice version.

Whatever ... it's a beer, and not a particularly impressive one, but pleasant enough flavour and aroma. Grassy and not very bitter, not much body at all ... nothing to call home about, unless it's to say, "Mom, I just drank this really average beer."

(500ml Bottle) 5% Import to Canada courtesy of the LCBO. Sadly this may be the best beer I get from the Queen's Quay location. Lively body of carbonation. Thin, golden. Medium, white head. Mild hop and corn aroma. Clean, slight hop flavour. Slightly above average Pils.

A decent beer. A clean fresh lager with a mild hop aroma and flavour. Quite refreshing if uninspiring.

This was a common beer in the Kyiv kiosks. When fresh its clean and mild. The velvet revolution took some hop presence away I am sure to distinguish it from the Czech beers.

A pretty good dark gold color and white head start this one. Nose is typical pils, though a little more bitter than usual. There really isn't too much to the flavor. Kind of bland and flat, unlike Czechvar, for instance, which has much more bite to it. An alright beer, though nothing special.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a medium head of fine and medium sized white bubbles. it has a transparent dark yellow orange body. I sensed a nice smooth hoppy flavor that finished dryly. It was smooth and very nice for its style.
