Sweet aroma...some caramel, but mostly sugar. The flavor was sweet also, but with much more malt. Nice brown color with a good off-white head. Not bad.

Pours a clear reddish color with a thick, fast fading and lacy head. The malt character is sweet, but not very full or complex. There is a weak hop flavor and subtle bitterness. The alcohol, although its not very high, is not masked very well. Still one of the better Russian beers on the market.

Fruity, little alcohol aroma. Amber colour, off-white head, good lace. Initially sweet and light, but becomes after a while fuller and stronger. Hopbitter and some raisin flavors as well. Long lasting bitter finish.

I was suprised by this beer too. Dark red with a lot of head. No real strong flavor of anything specific, but the beer has some body to it. No hop bite at all. Definitely better than most of the American Macrobrews. All in all not too bad.

Really awesome ruby red color with a nice head. Caramel and nut, perhaps a touch of raison in the finish. A surprising find, considering what Ive heard about Russian beer.

Vimto appearance with a frothy head. The slight cherry flavour makes the drink a pleasant package. Hardly a dunkel though.

Well I was expecting utter rubbish but I was actually somewhat surprised. Pours a gorgeous ruby amber clear under a light tan head. Light fruit and faint caramel roast aroma. Delicate smooth roasted fruity sweet start. Then I was waiting for something, bitter would have been nice, but it never arrived. The palate then stayed sweet and everything got even weaker all the way through to the unbitter end. A pity as it showed a lot of potential.

Red-golden with a medium head. Weak aroma, some sweetness though. Very smooth, slightly sweet malty taste. Sweet finish. Maybe a bit un-balanced.
