50cl plastic bottle.
Clear ruby color with no head. Aroma of rasins and malt. Thin body, strong carbonation. Taste of fruits with some malty hints. Nice and drinkable, but does not really feel like a kvass.

Dark brown colour, almost no head. Aroma of caramel, malt and fresh bread. Taste is sweet and a little sour, flavour of caramel and rye. Not a beer, but quite nice kvas drink, perfect for summer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Ruby red, small of white head. Nose is bready, malty and sweet, so is the taste, but with some sour notes in the background. Wold be better with less sweetness and more sourness. Not bad when cold., quite refreshing actually.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Both - 0,5L glass bottle for estonian market and 1L PET bottle Lidskoe Kvass in Belarus. Same drinks. This beverage is far better than artificial so-called Kvass or Kali. Refreshing, little bit sour (only little bit). For summerdays.

0.5 l bottle, thanks SaintMatty! Reddish brown color, sparkling appearance. Dry nutty aroma with rye malt. Sweetish rye malt flavor. OK low alcohol beer, I could drink this with food.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle (Stockman, Tallinn)
Sweet rye-bready aroma, some raisins. Crisp carbonation, sweet palate. Tastes a bit water, but has all the rich fruity buttery bread pudding that I like in a kvas. Alas the wateriness wins , but this makes it less sticky. And thank goodness it’s not just a chemical coctail unlike many other Estonian kalis now are.
