Good vodka is something I’d expect from the Russians, but good beer wasn’t, until I tried this. You have to finish the whole bottle to appreciate it though, because the finish is better than the start somehow. It’s a sweetish beer, but pretty well-balanced, and light enough to be enjoyed by itself, but also the body allows for consumption with food or tobacco. It’s not the absolutely best I’ve had, but pretty good beer for sure!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear golden color, topped with a decent white frothy head, slowly settling down. Malty aroma, slight sweet grains. Taste sweet, light (a bit watery) with some minimal bitterness and a slight metallic feel in the aftertaste. Exactly what you expect from a macro. Not unpleasant, though.

Beautiful foamy lager with good aroma of hops. The taste is rich of pilsner malt and has a small tang of fresh grass, which certainly appears from the hops. Very typical European lager in its lager style. By that I mean that this beer is like most European mainstream lagers, all brewed to satisfy the average beer drinker and therefore leaves no room for challenges, for example malt fullness or experimental hopping. It is very clean in taste, but in no way a lager that will be recalled in the future.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
To be fair I wasn’t expecting much and it seems my expectations were justified. It appears much the same as many Eurolagers - pale, frothy, lots of bubbles. It smells the same as Eurolager - grainy, indistinct. It tastes the same as many Eurolagers - bland, innoffensive, grainy. It finishes the same as Eurolager as well - innocuous, anonymous, indifferent.
