If there is one thing I can say about this style of beer and that is “I don’t expect very much, and I’m never disappointed”. Not that it’s a bad style, just seems I can’t find one that hits the “B” spot, but if nothing else I’m persistent and I keep on trying and trying. The archetypal lager color a transpicuous golden yellow, the head portly in size, bright white in color, frothy in texture, the lace a thin covering sheet. Nose is crisp fresh and clean, all malt, start is lightly sweet and loaded with malt, top skinny in feel. Finish has a perky acidity, the hops apropos to the style, dry aftertaste.

Big bubbles with a disappearing head. Pale Yellow, a bit hoppy. Nothing overly notable for or against the flavor.

Slight let down after trying the porter. I will say this, it is crisp and clean, almost watery. I had it in a bottle, between tasting even worse Russian brews, so this actually was a slight reprieve.

SilkTork (5297) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2004 On draft, quite a few times, at the hotel bar in St Petersburg. A beer often tastes best in its home town. I found this a consistent and enjoyable lager. Soft, creamy and with some delightful butter flavours. [2.4]
Bottle. Once away from Russia this beer is a mess. Almost disgusting in fact. [1.0]

Very light in color. Stale aroma. Quickly diminishing head. Pretty non-complex taste. I would be willing to bet that this isn't too bad on a hot day when served very cold.

rauchbier (3637) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2003
Bottled. Straw gold-low head-low condition. Unpleasant chemical aromas, sickly sweet and fruity flavours and adjunct aftertaste

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 6, 2003
Straw color with a white stable head. Floral soapy aroma. Light malt and floral hops flavors. A decent lager.

One of the most popular Russian beers with very common standard taste: very light in color, pleasantly refreshing and a bit bitter.

johndoughty (4114) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2003
My first Russian and surprisingly decent.Golden appearance and pleasant hoppy taste.Not too gassy and easy to drink. It seems that I am the only person in the world to like this one bit i would recommend trying it-or perhaps I was just in a geed mood.

Not much to say here. Very flavorless. Hops flavor was pretty weak. Body was very pale.
