1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hmmm so this was fun! Apple nose, sweet flavour, vegetal aftertaste. Drinkable, but not good at all, sucks that it’s the only Russian beer I’ve seen for sale here.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep golden brew that smells pretty much like most European lagers from a green bottle. A bit more flavor than the typical lager making this pretty good. Not overly priced but a tad more expensive than most other lagers. Will look at getting this one again if it is on sale.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
One of the better EU lagers. Underestimated here. Nice look, fast vanishing white top, good on nose, which is not so often among lager beers. Excellent carbonation. Aroma and taste also fine. Another good product from the monster Russian brewery.

hay, touch of grass as it warms up. Throw basic grains in there. Simultaneous hay and grain taste, sweetened palate, slightly drying? Light carbonation. Supreme drinkability

Bottle at Russian joint in Brighton Beach after aquarium visit. Standard pale gold. Nose is grainy. Tastes of grains, corn husk, malty, slight herbal. Land palate. But food was delicious and this washed it down well enough.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
50cl can bb?, drank in accompaniment to Polina Gagarina’s snow bunny rendition of a Russian peacekeeping mission at Eurosong 2015. Metallic corn and powdered starch clogging the nose, old grass piecing through - mercifully the fridge had this chilled at near-Vodka temp. Tastes like an ice water diluted invasion of a Eurolager: sweet corn husks, remnants of coarser bittering hops, starchy pancake, spent apple peel, hollowcore emptiness.
