2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light yellow colored, little white head. Aroma is standard Russian: buttery with lemon and sweet fruits. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is nicely crispy with also this butter, can’t decide whether this is good or not... Some cardboard in aftertaste with lemon.

Pale blonde color. Light creamy, grainy aroma. Medium bodied. Grainy flavor, rather bland. Some fruity esters in the aftertaste. This beer is bland, but not too bad.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours golden yellow with large head. Foam disappeared quick and left a lot of skunk. Of the three I tasted, this was the worst. I was surprised that the alcohol was only 5.3, must have been the corn that made this taste stronger.

50 cl can. The can says golden lager, and I won’t argue about that. It also says premium, I don’t know about that. Full malty flavour, some serious hops could have made this more interesting.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Strong malt taste, like most lagers should be. Finishes dry and thick malty on tongue. Nothing to write home about.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle, pours a clear golden colour with quite a lot of carbonation with a white bubbly head. Aroma of grassy hops and a sweet malt aroma. Very carbonated in the mouth - difficult to get any flavour. Sweetish, but bland.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Found this one bottled in Belvidere, Illinois. Fizzy, yellow pour with a nose of alfalfa grain and mown hay, a bit of maltiness well balanced with bitterness of noble hops, sweetness carries through. This was decent.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle... Clear yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Although this beer is filtered, the nose is extremely breadsy. Smells like biscuit dough with hints of cereal grains. Decently balanced flavor. Light sweetness and a lot of yeasty bread dough. Lightly tangy with no crisp hop bitterness. Medium-bodied with modest carbonation. Watery finish. Odd how yeasty a filtered lager can be.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rating from Aofoxxy’s Labor Day Gathering ’06. Pretty sad eh? Just now getting to these. Nose of cereal and yeast. Pours a sparkling golden straw. The quickly diminishing head is fizzy & white with no lace. The toasty flavor is light cereal. The palate is light, dry and soft.
