3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. Pours copper with a fizzy, slightly off white head. Good retention and some lacing. Aroma of malts, caramel, slight grassy hops and liquorice. Taste of caramel, toasty malt, slight bitterness, some dark fruit, hints of spice and a medium to strong sweetness. Medium carbonation, thin body, very sticky. I found it hard to finish because it was quite sickly.

This dark beer has a nice caramel taste, with some unusual overtones of flavor. It is medium hopped, It has a good dark malt taste, and I think the rye gives it that taste overtone that is pretty interesting.

From the archives:You do not see this beer outside of Russia that often. Closely resembles Märzen. Easily drinkable beer. Good to have alongside freshly grilled meat. Good mass produced beer.

0,5l glass-bottle. BB 03.06.07 Rating from 2007
Schön rot-braun im Glas, beiger Schaum. Das Bier als solches ist leicht röstmalzig-herb, schon leicht alkoholisch. Die malzige Bitternote wird im Hauptteil intensiver. gerade so nicht zu süß. Der Nachgeschmack ist mittellang, etwas weniger herb und röstmalzig-süßlich. --> Vielleicht doch etwas zu süß und etwas zu alkoholisch - aber durchaus trinkbar.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, 500ml from Grosik European Supermarket, Banbury. Reddy brown with short lived off white head. The first impression is of syrup, almost like a treacle syrup, mouth-coatingly so with a boiled sugar background. Fortunately a fruity, malty flavour shows through eventually offering a little redemption, making it drinkable. Not one to return to for me but finished much better than it started.

It could be worse I guess, and this brew is by no means intimidating or deterrent. It just a little too little.. Kind of flat and malty. Hops used are cheap grain, so there’s a risk of that metal taste in your mouth. Malts are indifferent and more likely to be overruled by some light sirup. If you do enjoy this style of beer, go for the Pizza Port Junkle if you can get your hands on it. This is pretty much a low end Dunkel.
