1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
I wonder how different brewers from the former USSR manage to get those similar malt brews that look like something between pale lager and dark lager beer. I had the liquid of this way many times from different producers. Anyway its not worth of being seriously reviewed. Poor and sad.

Pours an orange colour with a tiny white head. Aroma is sweet malt and grass. Taste is sweet caramelly malt with some straw leading to a lightly bitter finish. It’s ok.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
I found this at some really weird liquor store in Wheeling, IL. First, let me tell you the most insane thing about this beer. The packaging, which caught my eye instantly. This came in a gigantic, green, PLASTIC bottle with a screw-top, not unlike a 2-liter bottle of soda. The bottle says "2 QT., 1 PINT, .5 FL OZ." That’s right. This was an enourmous, 80.5 OUNCE plastic bottle of weird Russian brew. And it was only $4. I could not resist the opprotunity to buy something so bizzarre. As for the beer, it was a musty corny lager. But man, you should see this wild bottle this shit came in. Most insane thing I’ve ever seen. Good god. Walk into a party with your 80 oz. beer and watch everyone gape at you in complete awe. I drank the whole thing and woke up the next morning feeling like Soviet guards beat the shit out of me.

2L plastic bottle. Poured golden color with a thin head. Aroma is malt and hay. Flavor is malt and caramel, sweet, but not overly sweet. Better than I had expected it to be. Not much bitterness or hops detectable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
As Arsenalnoye Lager in Jumbo, Santiago de Chile. Pours clear golden with an average sized white fizzy head. It decreases quickly and leaves no trace of foam.
Aroma is typically malty, rather crisp but uninteresting as expected. Notes of cereal, bread and a slight trace of vanilla.
Flavor is sweet-ish and soft. They’re trying to go the safe route here and create a highly drinkable, simple and crisp lager. No aftertaste at all, even when you eruct.
Light body, medium carbonation. Kinda watery. The finish is rather short and tasteless. Wouldn’t die to drink this but I don’t think it has many defects. It’s simply very boring.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the giant plastic bottle. Light amber with a small white head. Faint apple aroma. Thin body. Taste is slightly sour and cidery. Dry finish. These ciderish Russia beers are pretty refreshing and good for the price.
