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.

500 ml. Can. Pale straw gold color. Little head to speak of. Aroma is of corn syrup and cardboard. Ugh, light corny sweet flavor has little redeeming value. No body or hop character. Pathetically inept. Avoid this at all costs.

Towey1989 (313) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2015
Bottle at The Wye Valley House, Buxton (JDW) Pours a clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of sweet grain, cereal, maize, bread and a slight citrus hint. Taste of sweet grain, cereal, slight vegetable, bread and floral hops. Light bodied and fizzy carbonation. A crisp bitterness in the finish. A decent lager, sweet to begin with and a nice, clean bitterness to end.

TATE (341) - Lubec, Maine, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Can. Pours a gold color with a thin white head and lots of carbonation. Vegetable aroma. No taste at the beginning ending with some cardboard and more hop bite than I was expecting. Super carbonated. This taste like any other cheap beer. Just wanted to tick off my first (and maybe last) beer from Russia.

WillemsUrenkel (804) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAR 13, 2015
Tall 0,5 l bottle. Penetrative straw with citrus on the nose. Clear golden with a big white head in the glass. Taste starts like dishing soap, later a little bit malt with low bitterness. Thin structure. High carbonated. Not recommended.

massingasetta (361) - München, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2015
That Russian beer can taste well is shown thru this international pale lager type beer. This is truly a good character beer of the drinkable sort. I was surprised that the ratio of bitterness and drinkability works so well.

Fľaša z Metra 0,5 l. 12.5° stupňové ruské pivo zo St. Petersburgu, určené na export. Zaujímavá fľaša, perfektný uzáver, pivo sa dá ľahko otvoriť aj bez otváráku. Vôňa jemná, príjemná, farba svetlá, pena hustá, ale "jarová" a rýchlo opadá. Chuť nevýrazná, ale pivo je prekvapivo piťeľné.

ordybill (483) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Poured from a 16.9 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a malt and citrus smell with a hint of that Euro Lager skunkiness thrown in. Appearance- A transparent yellow with a small white head. Taste- Has a nice malt and fruit mix not what I was expecting, a pleasant surprise. Palate- A light bodied beer with heavy carbonation,. Overall- Better than average, had a fruity taste than I expected. I would drink this again.
