The skunk hit me like a ton of bricks when I opened this one. Rocky but quickly diminishing head. Nearly clear yellow. Skunk smell wanes once poured. Lively carbonation but nearly flavorless.

Light and crisp. Slight fruitiness. Has a hollow, plastic-like flavor in the malts. Slightly foul, vegetable bitter-sourness in the aftertaste; somewhat musty with a wet hay flavor. Overall, not too bad up front, but it gets bad and becomes worse.

Hard to describe, grainy aroma - kind of peppery. Clear, golden appearance. Nice, even white head that sticks around for a bit with a bit of lacing. Strong, balanced, even lager flavor at the beginning. Sours near finish.

Aurelius (4109) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2002
Seedy, straw aroma. Decent pint bottle suitable for homebrew. Gold lager, formidable head. Easy drinking, not hoppy, with that sweetish malty east European lager flavor. Bready, chalky finish. Washed down meatloaf fairly well.

bierkoning (10138) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2002
Creamy head, disappearing slowly. Slight hoparoma. Just a little sweetness in the flavor. Vegetable-like flavors, some hops and a hint of citrus. Bit skunky aftertaste.

Colorless, with lively carbonation and foam. Sweet malt aroma and flavor. Slight hop bite at first soon turns sticky and sweet in the aftertaste. You’ve tasted this beer before even if you’ve never had it. Two or three sips then drain pour and onto the next.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2002
Quite a reasonable lager, this makes up for my previous bad experience with Russian beer. It’s a picture-perfect gold with a nice head, and the hops come through in a rather Czech way.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - OCT 1, 2002
Pouring rather thin with a weak head, the Ruskies didnt impress me from jump. (quite unfortunate given all the hype Ive heard about the brews from the motherland). The initial bouquet was not much in the first 1/3d of the beer but gradually picked up speed developing a nice tame maltiness with a slight hop presence. All and all, a decent brew good for the pedestrian drinker, but I think I shall search for greener pastures.
