larsga (7670) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2007
Biggish coarse white head leaves coarse lacing. Cloudy yellow body. Yeasty, mealy perfumy aroma with malty notes. Mild, soft fruity grassy hoppy taste with mealy malty notes, and a kind of dryish edge. Dry, fruity aftertaste. Nice, and extremely drinkable. (0.5l draft at Robert Doms beer house, Lviv. I think this an unfiltered version of their Premium, served at special locations in Lviv only. Dzyga in Lviv also has it, on tap.)

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2013
Mittelgelbe Farbe, trüb mit ordentlich Schaum. Hefig-malziges Aroma. Dünner Antrunk. Malzig, hefig, leicht säuerlich-fruchtig, verhaltene, bittere Hopfennote. Ok Pivo!

ogivlado (8167) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 9, 2012
Bottled 500ml. -from Billa Kiev, Ukraine. Golden coloured, medium sized white head, low carbonation, herbal nose. Moderate malty, slight herbal and pleasant hoppy with bitter finish. Simple, nice and one of the better Ukrainian beers.

ectuohy27 (1279) - ESTONIA - SEP 16, 2017
Not terrible--not particularly zhyve-like though (it is indeed a yeasty, traditional style in this part of the world) esp. at cold temperatures, but it's still a smoothly-brewed inoffensive, not overly thin pale lager (16.9 oz bottle, Billa, Kyiv)

Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 28, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2012 Draft at Robert Doms Lviv. Clear gold, stable head. Clean and bland throughout with neither malt nor hop character. Light and brisk and drab...Re-rate from bottle. Gold slight haze
Mild and thin, bland but clean
About same quality as at brewery

Как и "Дубова діжка", чуть лучше, чем 1715. А так — обычный лагер.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 4, 2013
The head is ok, the body blond. it smells malty, yeasty. The taste is mild, yeasty almost watery, a bit strange. Not that interesting. 10/7/8/7/11/7
