look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: 500 ml green slender Euro style bottle, no freshness date. Sediment on the bottom of the bottle was not compact and some of the beer was left behind so the dregs would not spoil the beer.

Appearance: Good heady foam that sticks in broken rings of lace, faint chill haze with a deep golden colour.

Smell: Light sulfur, fusel alcohol and an odd peppery aroma that could be phenolic. Other than that just down right grainy.

Taste: Medium body with a slightly creamy mouth feel and a moderate carbonation. Hop bitterness is straight, strong and prominent with a lingering mildly astringent leafy flavour. Some malt sweetness that resembles raw honey, graininess is near metallic and the malt character lacks in any kind of complexity. Bit of earth and fusel alcohol to make thing interesting in an odd way. Grain, leafy hops and remnants of the fusel alcohol make up the end.

Notes: A not so clean beer from the Ukraine, but interesting to say the least. Interesting is good to a point a bottle or even a sip is enough for this one.
