Quite a reasonable lager, this makes up for my previous bad experience with Russian beer. Itís a picture-perfect gold with a nice head, and the hops come through in a rather Czech way.

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.

Good light lager. Golden colored, hinted at the soapiness you sometimes get in Euro imports, but it wasnít in the flavor. Not bad.

Not very impressed with this beer at all. The fact that russian cant pour it properly either doesnt help

Plesently surprised. I didnít think this one bad at all. Better than a lot of lagers anyway.

Panzuriel (1310) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2002
Weaker and slight version of an american standard beer. A little too light for my liking. A little weak and old tasting as well.

A rather unpleasant Russian lager thatís really not recommended. Sadly, it comes in really big bottles so youíre generally in for the ílong haulí when you buy this brew. Odd, somewhat unpleasant taste.
