Not wholly terrible, with typical rusty/grainy/malty E. European PL notes throughout. Nice label and concept for a "local" feel though DoctorHU (621) - UKRAINE - FEB 21, 2016
500 ml bottle. Golden-amber in color. Flowery, bitter, fruity the taste is similar, baked apple sweetness and some alcoholic harshness and phenolic bitterness. Not bad Ascelja (1958) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 29, 2015

Bottle 0,5l. Clear yellow body, medium white head. Malty aroma with some apples, alcohol and spice. Taste is sweet. Malts, bread, hints of alcohol on the finish. Medium body, soft carbonation.
Above average of Ukrainian pale lagers, not bad.

Look; white big head, clear straw golden body, dots n spots as lacing. Aroma; malts, straw, bread, floral fruity scents. Taste; sweet malts, straw, bread, cardamum, faint twist of coriander - leading to a sweet malty strawy floral finish with some alcohol notes. On palate ok with soft carbonation, average body.

Really not bad, for pale lager from Ukraine.
Thanks to djoeye for sharing a 500ml bottle. 5.8 % abv. Fluffy white head over a clear straw-golden coloured body. Dotted spots on the glass. Bread-like malts on the nose, lightly spiced. Sweet grain malty flavours, some citric notes added by a touch of cardamom. Noticeable alcohol. Mid-sweet ending. Accepted (Tromsø 09.10.2015). mansquito (7277) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 21, 2015
I had my doubts seeing a pale lager rated this high, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was well deserved. Pours golden with white head. Aroma is frain mosty. Taste is pretty clean and grainy. Bready. Very inviting. Will bring one back to the states for sure. dnicolaescu (2802) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 12, 2015
BOTTLE 50 CL. Clear golden-amber, frothy white head. Start rather harsh with sulfur, band-aid. After a while the malts come through, apple pie with raisins and a touch of cinnamon and alcohol. The taste is similar, baked apple sweetness and some alcoholic harshness and phenolic bitterness. Some astringency and no hops. nickel (1265) - UKRAINE - APR 21, 2015
Aroma of malt. Really cool and unexpected. Just open the bottle and let your beer loose some amount of carbonation (aprox 30 min)
Taste of grain and malt. Not bad overall but rather sour aftertaste hopscotch (11486) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 23, 2009
Bottle… Clear, light golden lager with a large, frothy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is a mingling of warm bread, an herbal root (?), biscuit and sake. Medium to full-bodied and a touch astringent with modest carbonation. Sweet, vinous, sake-like flavor. Odd, but not entirely unpleasant. Finishes crisp, lightly sweet, and then super abrasive and dry at the very end.
