Poltavpivo Bochkovoe
Fairly insipid Euro-lager, not the worst beer ever sampled, but not the worst. Utterly forgettable.

*Bottle from a Eastern-European supermarket in Wuppertal. Grainy smooth nose. The beer starts fresh and quite full bodied. Hints of sourness in the background, easy to drink with a grainy body with dusty hints. Malty smooth with not too much bitterness, a bit bitter-harsh in the end. Not too bad.

Poltava Rigas Alus
Most notable for the truly unexpected name/label (who would have thought, a Baltic-and not just Baltic but Latvian--city held up as an example of good beer anywhere south of say Jelgava?), itís got a bit of an off-hop aroma and a slightly yeasty, slightly funky, slightly hoppy finish; in other words, perfectly undistinguishable beer qua beer.

Poltavske Dikanski Vechori Temne
Really attractive and unique ruby-amber-sepia appearance, straightforward malt taste, some caramel notes, and a fairly (alas) dull finish. (Main problem is that the body is too thin, but that doesnít get in the way of enjoyment.) Best of the three Iíve had from Poltava, at least, and worth drinking.. (16.9 oz bottle, Silpo, Mykolayiv)

Poltava Zhigulivske Svitle (Shigulewskoe Svtloe)
Pretty terrible rust-malt aroma, and the rest isnít much better, with the skunky taste I associate with the zhyhulivske/zhigulovskoe genre definitely present. This one is however much yeastier, which improves things, though I wouldnít necessarily return to this one

Perfectly drinkable and slightly enjoyable, though thoroughly unremarkable, svitle. Great malty aroma and surprisingly creamy though still thin body, average-to-low CO2, abrupt finish. Would easily session it though (Сільпо, Миколаїв)

500 ml bottle. Bought in a random supermarket in Kiev. Malty roasted smell, very good! Vainilla in there has well. Low white head with kind of transpartent black, sorry guys from Poltava, but this look like a Coca Cola. Taste is also great, vainilla ending in a chololate matly cereal experience. Great beer for sure! Nice suprise with my first ukranian beer.

Poltava Rigas Alus
Bottle. Beer straw color with a surprisingly abundant and persistent foam. The featureless flavor: weak malty tones and light floral and herbaceous notes. Body moderately dense, in a rather bland taste: presnovato malty tones and light notes of water. Lightly oiled taste, which quickly replaced the fading malt component comes expressive acidity and mild, slightly harsh hop bitterness. Aftertaste with pronounced acidity and rough hop bitterness.

PET 1,5L. Clear golden, white frothy head. A bizarre non-alco aroma - worty, tomatoes. The flavour, however, is fine - a rustic but clean grainy slightly sweet maltiness, with a touch of acidity. Very soft smooth body and a moderate spicy bitter finish. Decent.

Pale pale golden beer, white big head. Aroma; sweet pale malts, but also grassy notes. A mild beer, but still with taste as a beer. Very pale malts, sweet grains, lot of bread notes. Clean and easy feel. Not diluted. Finishes on grains, and fine bread, and finally hoppy notes appear. Better than expected from a 3.5-er, also when not well chilled.
