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.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
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]

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled. Straw gold-low head-low condition. Unpleasant chemical aromas, sickly sweet and fruity flavours and adjunct aftertaste

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
One of the most popular Russian beers with very common standard taste: very light in color, pleasantly refreshing and a bit bitter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not much to say here. Very flavorless. Hops flavor was pretty weak. Body was very pale.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
My first impression from the look and aroma was that I had popped open a MGD. Then I tasted it and confirmed my intial thoughts, tasted like a MGD, Bud, or Coors lite available at the local bar.
