On the nose I detected the faint scent of Hobo. The beer had only two flavors, alcohol and water. This beer pretty much sucked on all fronts except one. I am a soldier who just got into the kygyck republic and this is what they serve us. It is almost 9% so it helps to get you drunk. Avoid this disgrace if you have the chance.

50 cl. bottle procured in that quaint (in the same way as all of these kinds of stores are) Russian/East-European store behind the library. Brown bottle was a bit odd considering the colour of the others when this one didn’t pour all too dark. Also don’t really see much if any Russian on.the label – it is hard to read the text – is this meant for export or? Bottled on 29.11.2012. Pours a bright, ligher shade darker golden with little synthetic head. Smells of malt and caramel syrup and additives cover a light, cheap industrial vodka-style alcohol coming through, pure cheap alcohol, citrus and cheap malts. Taste is sweet malty syrup / caramel additives attempting to cover an industrial strength lager, cheap alcohol is all over the place here, medicinal style, cleaning agent, dark sugar, cheap malts, highly processed grains, solvent, citrus. Light with a touch of syrup here. This is some serious industrial swill they tried masking here, harsh bro.

Bright crystal yellow color. Very sweet and malty. Not very robust could use a bit more hops. But enjoyable.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bomber pour to lager glass. Malty aroma; pale yellow. Taste slightly sweet and malty, medium bodied and not boozy. This surprised me since I was expecting a thin bodied, alcohol bomb. I bought it so I could tick a country, but I wouldn’t turn down another one of these if it were offered to me.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cerveza dorada. Muy translucida y transparente. Con espuma blanca que desaparece rápidamente. Sabor sencillo. Como una lager, pero con cierto dulzor que le da sus 8% de alcohol.

I was expecting a beer more complex and balanced. I could feel a astringent palate at the end. A regular beer at most.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
In abottle brought back from a soldier who deployed. Pours a golden yellow-orange color with very little head. Sweet malty aroma. Aromas of leather and cereal too. Taste is very syrupy, thick malt. Very sweet. I don’t like it. It’s like it didn’t finish fermenting. The finish leaves a malt syrup taste that lingers.
