2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pour is a bland yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma is not a skunky as i thought it would be coming out of the clear glass bottle. Flavor is clean and slightly malty but hops are not present. Bland overall.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Killearn Liquors, Tallahassee, Fl, - 500 ml bottle. Pours a light golden with decent bubble action and a sad excuse for a head. Aroma is industrial and soapy. Flavor has traces of corn, cardboard and alcohol. Ever so faint traces of honey to sweeten it up. Not the most pleasant expoerience. Thin mouthfeel. Overall, a typical subpar Russian lager.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Musty, starchy aroma. Sulphurous, eggy. Very clear, specimen-colored lager. Finish is quick and bland. Not very hoppy, a little bit sweet. Some vegetable broth.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep golden colour; just off-white, collapsing head. Rather fresh, grainy nose, herbal-smelling hops. Sodden-sweet taste, vaguely malty; almondy surrounding, corn(?). Bit slick MF, more than light bodied. If there’s anything special going on, it’s too subtle for me. Sweet, slick and boring.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Canned) Golden color with small and vanishing head. Sweetish, clean and reasonably malty aroma. Fruity, malty flavor with a nice, bitter finish. Medium-bodied, quite carbonated but refreshing palate. This is the perfect beer to drink on a hot day after sweating on a motorcycle - right now, that is... :)

A golden beer with a fine but collapsing white head. The aroma is sweet malty. The flavor is also sweet malty - with hints of caramel and rather carbonized.
