2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Macro-yellow in appearance, long lasting, frothy white head. The aroma is somewhat sweet with malt, lending to sugar and some grass too. The body is sweetish at the beginning but moves into a pleasant grassy bitterness that last well into the finish. I don't know, I kind of liked this beer, I thought the sweet malt worked well with the subtle hoppiness. Not bad.

Fizzy, white head ... pours scarily pale, with a greenish twinge. Adjuncty, vegetable nose. Thin hoppiness and sweetness in finish. Phenols (?) in there somewhere. But it's another country on my list.

I don't know, I like beers from this region. This one is crisp and refreshing, a pleasant summer lager. That said, the colour is very pale and unappetizing. Wheaty aroma, slightly bitter with a bit of corny sweetness.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nothing to overwhelming. Large puffy whitehead. Yellow and pale. Slight malt and slight bitter. It's all slight and just not there. Thin body. Classicaly poor.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(5oo ml bottle) Big, white, foamy head... enough to shave with. Body is a pale yellow. Light carbonation. Bland corn nose. Bitterness that bites the back of your mouth. Rather light and fizzy. Thin and crisp. Slightly below average.

This Russian brew tastes a lot like rolling Rock. It's not all that bad, considering Russia really isn't known for its beer.
