3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer is very strong with an alcoholy taste and palate which is actually a preference of mine. I got the impression that this strong beer was heavily geared towards the Russian palatte and that they would appreciate its strong vodka overtones. I liked it alot. It was light brown with an average head and a strong alcohol with good beer flavorings.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tasted 12/4/15. BB 25.04.15. Poured a crystal clear amber with a few white bubbles for a collar. Lacing virtually nil. Carbonation very low and medium. Aroma of grain/corn and a hint of spices; no obvious hops; alcohol hidden. Taste dominated by earthy grains; no real bitterness; alcohol comes through as it warms; gets sour as it warms. Light body. Sweet with a syrupy mouth-feel. Strong alcohol on the finish. Best drunk cold as it gets virtually undrinkable as it warms.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A heavy beer in the style of eastern lagers. This is an optimal beer for meat dishes and for anything heavy. A good tasting beer with some sweetness. All in all a good Russian beer.

Russian import bottle - Malty malt malt taste with little but malt to describe. There's a faint whiff of hops but not much of a taste.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
500ml can. Pours light gold with a small white head with low retention. Sweet aroma of alcohol and grain. Taste is the same, its like they’ve added vodka. Finish is bitter and alcoholic.Gets worse once it starts warming up. Its only redeeming quality is the low price.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates completely. Aroma is full of cookie, sweet grains, and a sweet corn note. Flavor has musty sweet corn and sweet grains with an odd sweet fruit note.

Kveldens siste i Baltikasuiten, alle fra den døgnåpne russiske sjappa ved hotellet. Klar lys gyllen med hvitt skum. Her har de spart på aromahumken men tatt det igjen i smaken. Til å være en lager på 8% er den elegant pent avrundet med en deilig, mild smak og ettersmak med blomster og honning. Farlig.
