A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Beer – #619 – Obolon – Premium

Ukraine! so exotic beer, exotic music, usual numbers and members of the party.

“It is highly stable beer with special freshness and saturation,  It has a distinct taste”

500ml bottle of beer of 5.5% ABV so about 156 calories a serve size, an there are the equivalent of 2 standard drinks in this bottle

Brewed by Obolon in the style that is of a  Pale Lager and they are in Kiev, Ukraine

Especially refreshing and effervescent, high-stability beer with a pronounced taste and pleasant bitterness. In addition to traditional ingredients, rice is used in the production of Obolon Premium.

This is one the most popular beer brands due to its mild taste and average solids content.

It has a distinct taste and nice bitterness.  Due to its soft flavour and medium content of solids Obolon Premium is one of the most popular beers.

So what could possibly go wrong?

Well it’s in a lovely shaped and tactile bottle, which I’m always a fan of.

Gosh that’s a strong aroma of hop and malt. Pour is a that lovely pale yellow, and there is a small white head of head, I’m doing well so far.

Obolon PremiumWhat can I tell you about a taste that isn’t remarkable or different in a way that I can tell.

There is an overarching taste to this that has a lot of linger, that in itself is unusually pleasing, it is veering towards sweet.

Unremarkable, when they say mild taste they hit the nail on the head. I can imagine that this is popular because it’s just cold quaffing beer.

And in the spirit of not saying anything if you can’t say anything nice I’m done.

The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 5 of its things from the thing. There is nothing scary or daunting about this, there is nothing remarkable, unusual, different or quirky either, aside from the bottle which is lovely. You could hardly be offended if someone turned up with this, unless you like lager beer with a bit of a hop bite in there somewhere.

The double dip review

Am I enjoying it? It’s quaffing beer, quaffing away nicely.
Would I have another? It would be easy not to have another, it’s quaffing beer.
Would I share with a friend on a porch and set the world to rights? Possibly if it was bring something from somewhere I’ve never been and not likely to go to day.

Music for this, there’s only two kinds of music.. Country and Western… but I digress… tonight though James Vernon Taylor is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist.

This is a track called “Today, Today, Today” from a new album ‘Before this World.  Of course you can listen most of the places or here on Spotify 

It has crafted lyrics but is a bit muzak.

PALE LAGER

The colour of pale lager ranges from light bronze to nearly transparent and the alcohol anywhere from 4-6%. Adjunct usage may be quite high, though in some cases the beer is all-malt. Carbonation is typically forced, though not always. One thing that doesnt vary is that neither the malt nor the hops make much of an impression on the palate. These beers are brewed for minimum character, though faint traces of hop or malt may show through. More likely though is that adjuncts like corn will show through, or you’ll find notes of higher alcohols (fuel notes) due to the use of high-gravity brewing. The body will be thin and watery, and the finish is typically non-existent.
