2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled (BB 10/2005)
Pale yellow, small white head. Malty nose, light alcohol, kind of harsh but not unpleasant. Malty, a bit sweet, medium-bodied with a strong alcoholic touch. Anyhow tasty and clean European strong lager.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
I’m usually not too picky with my beers, but for some reason this brew rubbed me the wrong way. Perhaps the bottle had been open too long - I’m not sure. Anyway, it was a bit sweet. And very strong. I can’t complain, though: I paid $1.49 for like 1 pint 7 oz or something. It was a cheap crunk. Russia forever!

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
A: The pour is a very pale straw/yellow color with a thin layer of white foam.
S: Smells damp and moldy with some possible fecal notes. Rotting vegetables and a bit time corn aroma. Sickly sweet and cloying. Lots of butter, because we couldn’t have a truly excellent beer without that.
T: Cloying sugar and corn sugar. Oh goodness is this bad. Grape juice, cooked vegetables, butter, just awful. Some definite booze flavors, too.
M: Pretty heavy, unnecessarily so, with a moderate level of carbonation.
D: Jesus Christ.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pretty much of a honey sweet corn aroma. Sturdy white head that left slight lacing. Bright gold color. Medium bodied, fizzy, almost creamy carbonation. It’s corny sweet, maybe a touch of honey. Instant heat. The hops must have gotten lost. There’s a light astringency, but the finish is not really dry. After awhile I can imagine there might have been some hop bitter.
