Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2004
UPDATED: APR 21, 2004 A clear golden (urine) yellow with a large diminishing white head. Mostly sweet, slightly sour aroma of cereal, honey, and soap with hints of straw and peach. Light-medium watery body with lively carbonation. Flavor is mostly sweet with honey, light bread, pepper and straw coming through. The sweetness is kind of odd and unfamiliar (adjunct related?). Somewhat astringent. Not really offensive, just not good. At least now I will have the 'Malt Liquor' style category filled.

Togda-to ia zhe pil i napil eto pivo, i dumal chto eto bylo takoe kliovoe. Akh, chto ia ne znal. . . This beer is strong, that’s about it. Tastes like it was strained through a newspaper.

emartell (253) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - FEB 2, 2013
Aromas a maltas, grano, lupulo y alcohól. Agradable aun que no tan intenso. En cuanto a apariencia, color muy ligero, casi pálido. Carbonatación alta. Corona de espuma ligera de media retención. En boca sumamente dulce y alchólica. Al paladar, las sensaciones en boca no cambian mucho. De inicio una suavidad y ligereza importante. Posteriormente el dulzor de la malta se sobrepone ampliamente en toda la boca. No se percibe la carbonatación alta ni amargor del lupulo, el cual brilla por su ausencia. En general una cerveza poco equilibrada, sumamente dulce por la malta utilizada.

After definitely favorable reactions to the Baltika lager and dark beer, I regret to report that this one totally does not work for me. However, as Meat Loaf once said, two out of three ain’t bad.

16.9 oz bottle at Russia House. Probably should have had good Russian vodka instead of this one. Average macro aroma. Only thing working for it is high alcohol content.

Stuedmaster (235) - Vista, California, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Aroma of honey and corn syrup. Pours clear gold with a decent soapy white head that leaves lacing. Flavor is syrupy sweet, not enough balance, very grainy and sweet. Has a nice alcohol kick, some Russian hooch for your gullet. It’s better than most American macros, at least it’s neither a dirty fermentation nor dominated by adjunct grains. Cloyingly sweet, like a corn syrup bomb, don’t think I will repeat.

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.
