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.

Can sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond Shop. Thanks DSG for a superb 2K rate!!! Clear pale gold with white wave. Sugary and a little metallic aroma, nasty metallic taste with some artificial chocolate. Light-to-medium body with some sweetness in the end.

I'm not a lager fan and this is a lager. Fun to try a Russian beer but don't need it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear pale yellow with a weak white head. Aroma of corn, mild sugary something, and honey. Tastes sweet and grainy with some booze. Medium, syrupy body.

Senka (345) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 15, 2014
From the archives: beer full of ABV. Hoppy and malty, but watery and has an aftertaste of vodka. If you are on a budget - get wasted with this one.

(bottle) pours a clear golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of alcohol, pineapple juice and burnt sugar, with a hint of pale malts and chestnut honey. flavour is mostly the same, heavy alcohol and pale malts, some caramel and a hint of herbal hops in the dry finish. heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

For a "strong" beer this is a mild one! U can taste the alcohol but everything else is subdued, a decent beer but nothing special ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MRMedellin (169) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - MAR 1, 2014
Clear tanned golden beer with small white head. The malt aromas are more evident, some grain, syrup, corn notes are felt. The taste has a lot of malt flavors, but also the alcohol make is sweet and maybe because of that the hops don’t make a significant change at the end.

500ml bottle into tulip. Minneapolis Appearance: pale yellow wih big white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma: sweet, stale beer, strong alcohol/menthol smell. Taste: sweet. Palate: thin body. Slick texture. Long aftertaste. Overall: really not great. Terrible in just about every category.
