500ml can - Pours a clear yellow with a quickly dissipating head. Sweet malt aroma. Taste is too sweet with an off flavor and alcohol. Ugh
500ml can. Clear yellow beer, small white head. Nose is grainy with a hint of honey. As far as ESL goes, it doesn’t smell too bad. Flavor is grainy and slightly sweet, with honey and more grain in the finish, mild alcohol warmth. Skarecrow (1113) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 11, 2016
500ml can BB 8/4/2017
Fruity aroma with alcohol background note.
Poured golden straw with OK head.
Ok-ish bitterness followed by wet cardboard and nothing else - very thin.
Didn’t even get the 6.8% ABV.
Got the Ukraine tick though :-) DSG (15519) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 29, 2016
Can shared at a tasting at Max’s place. Clear yellow with a white head. Grainy aroma with a bit of corn, a bit of malt, a bit of honey, a bit of hay. Sweetish grainy flavor, with a bit of malt, a bit of corn, a honey hint, a bit of alcohol, and a slightly bitterish finish. Quite light-bodied. A bit alcoholic, but pretty clean. Pretty classic European Strong Lager. waiake (606) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 31, 2016
500ml can nothing flash but better than expected generally more sweet than bitter malty background with standard strong lager flavours happy to break up the estonian monopoly here even with great memories of my brief stay in Tallinn 1995

Sweetish malt aroma, taste of malt and industrial runoff and alcohol burn--brings back fond Ukrainian memories, indeed. Quite nice overall, if lacking too much subtlety Senka (1097) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 5, 2015
50cl can as pictured. Velvety strong lager. Maltines is ok. No hops. Not the best water. Did not like carbonation at first, but it gets velvety and smooth towards middle of the glass. Start is weak, finish is weak, but it is ok overall. One can is enough. Marduk (8840) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 2, 2015
500ml can. Dark golden color. Alcohol, acetone, malty, sweet, cardboard in aroma. Doesn’t smell good. Sweet, malty, alcohol, slightly rough in taste. Tastes better than smells. Slightly improves as it freezes. FatPhil (17513) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 29, 2015
500ml can (Shop next to the real Tommi Grill, Tallinn)
Paleish. Quite a classic mocne aroma. First sip is scary harsh. Second more bland. Third a bit malty. Fourth quite OK, for a strong lager. Fifth almondy. Interesting strong lager.
