I'll keep this short - this really resembles Obolon Lager for me.

It pours a pale yellow with a finger of porous head. Beer is really skunked.
The taste is a little better than the Lager, but still really unspectacular. Really carbonated.

As I said before : If you're going for Obolon, you should really go for the Svitle. It's the best of the bunch, and certainly the most popular in Ukraine.

A: Pours a clear bright lemon to golden yellow in color with heavy amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a quarter finger tall fizzy white head that reduces to an extremely thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: This beer had a fairly strong aroma of apple cider with some lighter notes of a spice that I cannot quite put my finger on (maybe it could be cinnamon). Then there are some light notes of grassy hops as well as a small amount of corn adjunct malts as well.

T: Based on the smell, I was expecting the flavor of this beer to be sweeter but was pleasantly surprised that it was not too sweet. Flavors of apple cider (though not overly sweet), some cereal graininess, and some lightly metallic notes. The beer also has some light grassy hop bitterness that lingers.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with heavy amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin but a little dry in the finish.

O: Wasn't really sure what to expect when this one was found at a convenient store out in Brooklyn - the entire label on the can was in Russian with a single small nutritional information sticker on it in English. This beer was very easy to drink and quite sessionable.

A: The beer is clear lemony golden yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that eventually completely faded away.
S: There are aromas of apple in the nose along with some hints of spices (possibly cinnamon) and some hints of malty sweetness.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has flavors of apple cider and malts. There is a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn’t that difficult to drink, but the apple cider aromas and flavors make it seem a little strange.

A: Golden color and clear, with many bubbles streaming in the glass. Head is white and stands at 2 fingers. Retention is fair, with little in the way of lacing.

S: Aromas are of hay, grasses, and noble hops, but overall are weak.

T: Light breadiness with a touch of hop bittering. Also some metallic off tastes.

O: Serves a role as an uninspired thirst quencher/lawnmower beer.

Out of a bottle this beer was a clear golden color with a light bronze tint to it. The white head displayed decent retention but left little lacing off the collar. The aroma was of cereal grains, sweet malt and a hint of ‘skunkiness’. Not sure if this was a freshness problem or an execution of the recipe problem. The flavors were also off and not much to speak of. Cereal grains, a little corn, hints of metal and a hoppy bitterness on the finish. Not altogether pleasant. The mouthfeel was a bit slick, the body medium and the carbonation good.
