1715 Lvivske Premium Lager
1715 hails from Kleparivska, Ukraine, where it is brewed by the Lvivska Brewery. This pale lager is sold in 500mL bottles and has 5% alcohol. Ontario's liquor stores have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to Eastern European pale lagers. When making my selection, I look for things that set a particular brew apart. For 1715, I was persuaded by the badass cap that featured a crowned lion hoisting a beer stein. Simple things...
1715 is an ordinary Eastern European pale lager. It is extremely drinkable and refreshing--a good sunny day brew. However, it is thin and lacking in distinctive character. Lager fans will enjoy this one, but beer snobs might be less impressed.
Rating: 6.5 out of 10.
