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.

How funny -- I go all this time without rating a malt liquor, and the first one I happen to try isn't one of the Americans, but a Russian one. Crystal clear straw body with large white foam. Aroma is grainy, sweet, alcohol, light herbal. Taste is medium sweet, grainy, finishing alcohol and light herbal. Undercarbonated mouthfeel, fairly light body for 8%.

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.

Bottle. Golden colour, average fluffy head. Skunky and malty aroma. Sweet and alcoholic flavour with some skunkiness, malty and some hoppiness. Little bitter-sweet aftertaste.

Week head, bitter flavour, and a surprice citrus-finish. I was positively surpriced of this beer.
