Clear gold little head. Sweet aroma with some vanilla, malt and a touch of diactyl. Sweet, dirty, watery, astringent. Not clean in flavor. Not good.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
This bottled brew marked bottled on 5/30/06 and best before 5/30/07 from a bottle shop poured a head of foam with a frothy top fine to large sized white colored bubbles that was mostly diminishing and left behind a transparent softly carbonated light yellow colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was malty astringent and dough. The smooth mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt and astringent. A horrible one that I would not buy again.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Small white head that mostly diminished with sparse lacing, minimal carbonation, transparent, and a yellow hue. Nose was skunky, hoppy, malty, and some corn. Not very inticing. Flavor was corn, malt and very little hops. Again, not inticing at all. Smooth mouthfeel.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured with a medium gold body and a thin white head. The aroma had some sweet carrots and some tomatoes. There was also some light pancakes. The taste has some light potatoes with a little apple core and some grass. Actually, this is not too bad, just a bland pale lager.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Yellow beer with fizzy white head. Odd chemical baked bean nose. When had with food it is okay, but on its own the flavors of corn, overcooked green beans and old lemon peel take over. If you drink this, order the pizza ahead of time.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Despite being in a clear bottle, this was easily the best of the 2,5, and 7 we just got in here. Doesn’t look particularly good but the flavor is pretty smooth and tasty for the style. Not hoppy like a pilsener, but nice nonetheless.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
I think Zolotoe is Russian for Miller. This uninteresting and insipid beer was had at a ecclectic 30th b-day party for a Romanian friend of mine...somehow, this too was invited. I had it in a bottle but I’d classify the aroma as bready and subtle and not in an appealing way. Ther may have been a slightly grassy taste to it as well. the appearance was golden and full. This was a light, uninspired taste that went down unbalanced with a poor aftertaste. It will be a cold Russian winter when I sample this again Хуйня beer!
