This is a drink for real enjoyment. It is distinguished by a delicate golden color, a pleasant malty flavor and hoppy aroma.

500ml can. A typical pale lager; pleasantly malty aroma, and a grainy flavour. Head disappeared almost immediately, leaving a rather flat looking body.

(500ml can) Basic pale lager, unfortunately. Lacks of character. Has much same elements as Finnish ones.

courtesy of oh6gdx - translucid pale golden colour, no foam remaining; aroma of corn and plastic, sweet and slightly oily, short corny finish with some residual sugars - quite tasteless and very modest

Can (BB 02/2008)
Very bright pale yellow, almost green, decent white cloudy head. Grassy, a bit vegetably and malty aroma, some sweetness and paper too. Light palate. Slightly harsh malty flavor. Clean but boring light bulk lager. As sayravai mentioned, not far from Lapin Kulta.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2007 Pretty decent lager, not much character (cannot pinpoint anything the day after without notes), but very drinkable indeed. Color was actually a bit greenish. Second tasting: It’s light, but actually seems to have some hoppiness and grassiness lurking around. It’s fresh and even tasty.

Canned. Yellowish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is malts and hops. Flavour is malts, slight syrup and some hops. Flavour is malts, some sweetness and a nice hoppy peak in finish. Not very interesting, but quite clean.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2007
(Canned) Clear, paleish golden with a smallish head. Very mild, clean but boring aroma with hints of malt and grassy hops. Grassy-hoppy, neutral flavor with hints of pear and lemon, and a mildly acidic finish. Light-bodied, almost watery palate with medium carbonation. Another boring bulk lager, but at least it’s neutral and clean, and without harsh hops. A Russian version of Lapin Kulta?

I love the Russians,there beer is not the greatest but there very friendly and hospitable people.Golden color,small white head,Aroma of malt and graininess with a faint hop side.flavor was decent enough but not great,mildly sweet with a decent malt side and some graininess with just a bit of hops in the end to round it out.Nice enough for once in awhile,and in some cases better then some of the American choices in the style.

Sampled at the beer festival. Did not taste any different than any of the other beers. Nothing distinguished itself from the other beers. Bland but drinkable.

Bottle. Metallic taste I find with so many boring pale lagers. This one was surprisingly drinkable though! Slava Rus!
