Can. Clear golden color and a small white head. Corny aroma and a hint of hops in the taste, light sweet. light body and a light dry finish. CQC (224) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 12, 2004
Inoffensive, low taste beer.
slight hanging tang.
Light fizz to it.
Looks very golden thou, so that must be worth something BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2004 I cannot drink! Stop shipping crap to America in green bottles - don’t need to hear any more sob stories about skunk beer and the economy. This is horrible - totally skunk for $2.95 - had to dump it! Sorry, no more Western Generosity! [Since this bottle was so horrible I have this beer slated for re-rating from another liquor store’s inventory, as I may have simply gotten a very stale product.] eraserhd10 (226) - new haven, Connecticut, USA - OCT 26, 2004
Back in the U.S.S.R.? Well, sort of. A pale, watery lager. Light and almost vanilla tasting. Nothing special. Strong skunkiness. This ranks very similar to a Heine or Becks. pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2004
Big green bottle (0.5L) at the UACA club for the NLNA Talent show. Decent swill: good barley, water, hops, and yeast lager.

Sampled at an outside bar in Kyiv. Has a very small head topping a light body. Ah, what do I smell? corn, baby! Soemthing that is hard to find in many Ukrainian lagers. The taste is not pleasant, slight sour with some hops. A dry finish. JoeM500 (1909) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - SEP 12, 2004
Bottle (green): Very grainy yellow with a huge corn nose. lager yeast dampness aroma as it warmed. Quite harsh and grainy, but a solid haylike hopped finish which, thankfully, got rid of the rest of the tastes. Drew (2470) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2004
Pale yellow, small head, no lacing. Smelled not too bad, but not much smell at all really. Streaming carbonation up the glass. Taste was soapy, lightly sour, dirty. Could barely finish this one. imdownthepub (15513) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2004
Bottled, pasteurised. Sl Hazy pale gold with white fizzed head. Sweet, sl stale, some dry tea, fairly standard lager. There is a taste of a maize adjunct and not much else. I didn’t appreciate that this was from the Ukraine until now. MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2004
A very boring brew. Nothing interesting. Corn in both aroma and flavour. Dry and carbonated in both finish and aftertaste.
