2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle, best before 19/06/16. Has the same barcode as Arsenalnoe Premium. ABV is 4.7%. Pours dark gold with a small white head. Aroma is caramel malts, grass. Taste is more caramel, lots of water, low bitterness. Quite underwhelming, but probably better when fresh (this one was almost a year old). Glad that it wasn’t anything more than half a litre.

I tried this at a resturant the other day, 500 ml bottle for $5. Pours a standard yellow body with a wispy cap that left some ok lace. Aromas and flavor of hay, and overly sweet malts. Its about what you would expect.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Golden beer with an average white head that doesn’t last. Aroma is malty with bread and straw notes. Flavor is sweet and bitter leading to a dry bitter long end. Body is medium and carbonation is low.

500 ml bottle. Bought it in a supermarket in Chile and it says it’s imported from a Russian factory. I didn’t find any like it, so I added it. Strong grass smell with terrible looks, very carbonated with an ugly with head. Taste is kind of wheat, but very waterish, bad. Metallic aftertaste dint help neither. Bad supermarket lager. For some reason this beer is really cheap here in Chile and you can find it everywere. Weird Russian treaties must support this one.

1.42l plastic bottle. Golden colour, fluffy head, quickly collapsing. Sweet nose. Malty with a grainy touch, hints of cardboard and a strange sourness in the background. Strange mouthfeel.

Classic dark Lager with loads of malt and syrup. Tough to drink with that sugar in the back and that skunk in the aftertaste. Well, got that one in a liter bottle. Tough fight. I won.

Pours out of the bottle (delicious 1.5 l out of a plastic bottle) in a clear light golden colour with low head and thin body. Aroma of grains and hops. Taste of bitter hops, grains, light malt and grass. Hints of citrus. Not a nice beer.

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.
