Full original name is: Persha Privatna Browarnya Svitle.
Extreme light yellow, unresistant head with big bubbles, no lace at all. Mild malt aroma with tones of lemon & apple. Mild malt taste with apricot & "dichlofos" (or another kind of disinsectant spray) aftertaste, hop is well hidden. Light, but not very pleasant liquid.

Served in a Walter Payton shaker pint glass.

Part of a shipment of random Ukrainian beers found at my local Binny's. It pours a clear straw topped by a finger of short-lived white foam. The nose comprises wheat, corn, and glass cleaner. No, scratch that, it's more like lemon-infused wood cleaner (I think I have a bottle o' that stuff somewhere...). The taste holds notes of acrid wheat, bad lemon rind (not really as cleanser-like as before), grass, flowers, and some sort of strange, dull sweetness in the back. The body is pretty light, with a light moderate carbonation, a watery feel, and a crisp finish. Overall, a pretty bad brew all-around here. Boo this.

500 ml bottle, got it in some shop in Lviv.

Golden colour, very fizzy head which disappears within seconds, no lacing. Aroma is mild malty, with hints of apple, maybe citrus, some hops far in the background. Taste is mild hops, a bit yeasty with some not very pleasant and slight malty aftertaste. Feels fizzy and very thin.

Overall, I am quite disappointed with this one, others beers from Persha seem to be much better.
