Choos (738) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - NOV 4, 2005
Aroma: hints of sulphur, gives way to some herbally/grassy smells with a touch of grain. Appearance: tiny bubbly white head, crystal clear pale gold. Flavour: sweet pale malt balanced by some gently hop notes. Palate: thin with reasonable low carbonation. Kinda cookie cutter with the Obolon Lager but even not as good.

DuffMan (9920) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 20, 2005
Yellow gold, lacy head, sweet malt and skunky/grassy hop aroma. Unbalanced palate. Sweet malt and quite a bitter finish are poorly integrated.

Looks like Corona, smells rather bad. Tastes ok though, less harsh than Polish lagers, slight bitterness & herb notes. Very light in general. OK

<img=http://markmcdermott.home.mindspring.com/B align=right>500 ml. bottle purchased at <a href=http://ratebeer.com/Place/illinois/oak-forest Liquors, Oak Forest. My first Ukrane beer. Hope this isnt the best they can do. <img=http://markmcdermott.home.mindspring.com/B align=left>BIG skunky smell when I open the green bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with at least a deeper color than other pale beers. But taste is a little better than appearance: grainy and corny. Bitterness sits on the tongue like curdled milk.Very alcoholic. Another import that shouldnt be shipped halfway around the world in green bottles.

ALLOVATE (2962) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2005
I dont know how this one became labelled the Premium, the standard Lager was easily a more flavoursome and balanced offering. Poured into a weissbier glass, a short soapy white head formed atop a clear, pale gold body, and left a little legs. Very soft and slightly unclean, egg yolk and honey malt nose, with little else. Very subtle and almost delicate palate, very light bodied, but not watery, with a medium level of carbonation. Corny, tonic water and cordial flavours with a mix of grainy malt, powdery, grassy hops and brine. Finish is crisp, salty and has only a little husky malt for length. Not the Premium I expected, and it really didnt excite the taste buds, even as a light refresher. I would stick with the Green label over the Gold (50cL Bottle, 23/08/05, Intl Beer Shop, W. Leederville)

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2005
A much better beer than the same brewers lager. The finish isnt as metallic and the hop-malt balance is more integrated. Bright gold with a skinny rim of foam that quickly departed. Generally malty aroma also has cereals and faint lemony hops. The mouthfeel is rounded and the finish doesnt jar the way the lager did. Theres nothing terribly remarkable about the flavour profile - sweetish malt initially followed by a fairly sharp bitterness - but overall, this is a much better pale lager. (500 ml bottle, IBS, Perth)

Looks and smells pretty bad. The bubbles rise for a very long time in this brew and may give it that little extra flavor that makes in an above average lager in taste - the most important area.
