3.65/5  rDev +20.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a stein glass.

Look – light golden color, clear, with good steady carbonation and about a finger and a half’s worth of off-white foam, slightly frothy, that dissipates somewhat slowly.

Smell – very Czech pilsner-like. Hoppy, but also with higher malts. There’s a drier essence to it as well.

Taste – very much like the smell. It tastes like a pilsner, hoppy, but with a slight dry touch that gets sweetened out by the malts in the finish.

Mouthfeel – not too badly balanced actually. Better balanced than I would have guessed. Still leans more toward the watery side, but less so than I would have expected.

Overall – not a bad brew at all. Not my favorite beer type, but still in and of itself, it’s quite good and true to the style.

3.45/5  rDev +13.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pale golden, clear, two finger white head pour, with ok-ish retention.
Smells skunky, a bit fruity, stewed hops, sweet grains.
There's an interesting note in the taste, like sweet grapes, a juicy fruitiness that's nice, but touched by a bit of "corn" sweet malts. Grainy malts, white bread. Herbs and grassiness, with a bit of a bad off-note in the finish, but not a deal-breaker.
Light to medium in body, "wet" and crisp, quite a refreshing lager.
If you're in Ukraine, pick this one up when not sure which "Premium lager" to choose, it might even surprise you.

500mL bottle, shared with my dad. Pours pale golden with nice clarity; frothy, white head sticks around leaving some sparse lacing as it fades. Aroma is fresh, with yeast, grass, but seems to have some mild UV exposure (green bottle). Modest flavors are hay, sour-ish, and has a dry grassy finish. Thinner bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, I found this one to be odd. Not crazy over it and wouldn't buy it again.

Purchased on sale for 99 cents at Premier Gourmet in Buffalo NY on my way back from Michigan two weeks ago, just to try.

Poured from the 16.9 oz. bottle into a British Nonick pint glass.

a: A clear lager gold. A white head built to more than an inch and then faded to a spotty surface foam film and some light lacing which eventually disappeared..

s: Mildly fruity-herbal.

t: Very pleasant white grape notes which became less noticeable as it was consumed. Hop bite increased somewhat as it warmed but remained on the light to moderate side.

m: Refreshingly light, but somewhat watery. Body feel improved as it warmed. But then, doesn't that apply to us all? ;-)

o: Not as bad as I feared, not as good as I hoped. The initial pleasing white grape flavor seemed overshadowed later by the lack of body.

I would probably not buy this again, I can get almost as much Genesee Light or Cream Ale for half the price and be no less pleased. But it was nice to try once.

Great looking 1 pint bottle but after drinking it I was not happy with the taste. Its like a crossover between lager and pilsner beer. Only 4% of alcohol does not make it better.
It has nasty muddy taste and after few sips you want to stop drinking it. Its probably
the worst beer from former USSR.

Bought a bottle of this 1 Pt 0.9 Fl Oz (Vol. 0.5 l) @ Ava Sofia in St. Louis, MO for $6. Poured from the Green/Gold labeled bottle into a 16oz Pint Glass. Had no sign of a freshness/bottled on date.

Aroma- A similar aroma to a pils comes to mind here. Grain and sweet malts both are present and can’t find much else. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Appearance- Pours a 1 finger, bubbly head that is short lived. The body color is a pale golden color and has perfect clarity. Leaves a few suds behind.

Flavor- Malty, sweet, and the average grain tastes come across. Then a dry finish approaches with a decent hop presence. Soft characters all around and very well balanced.

Mouthfeel- Light Medium Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Smooth, and then bites with malt at the finish.

Overall Impression- Once again, I was seeking out foreign beers while at dinner. This one was a bit on the sweeter side and had more of a crisp taste with sweet malts included. Paired nicely with the hummus and pita chips I ordered for an appetizer.

When visiting Lviv, of course you have to have Lvivske 1715. Served in a branded mug, it was an average lager. Light and clear in colour, aroma of grain, not strong but definite. Actually did not finish as dry as I expected, but undeniably a lager. Solid representation of its style, and a good showing from Ukraine, but nothing special in the grand scheme of things. More of a local brew to drink when visiting the area, not something to seek out as an export.

I tried this beer in October 8, 2011 after purchasing from the Queen's Quay LCBO outlet in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent light gold colour with a generous white rocky head. The aroma was grains, metal, and acid. The mouthfeel was crisp, medium bodied, with medium carbonation. The flavour was grainy and awful!

A random I picked up at the LCBO...

A - Pours a pale golden colour, thumb of light soapy head with some retention and sporadic lacing.

S - Light on the nose, musty grass notes, hint of skunkiness, touch of bready malt.

T - Much like the nose, rather mild and unoffensive, grassy notes dominate aside a biscuit malt and a hint of graham cracker.

M - A tad thin, smooth and finishes wet.

O - A tasty, easy drinking pale lager than accomplishes its goals... Unoffensive and thirst quenching.
