Thanks to ghawener. Drank it in El Flor. Same as No.7. Can you say maize!! Brewed with many adjuncts which gives it the maize aroma and taste. Skunky.

Golden yellow, minimal white head. Mild fruity aroma with some orange. Quite nice taste with slight sweetness. Soft mouthfeel, mild carbonation. Pretty good for the style.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2004 Medium gold in color with a moderate fizzy head and an aroma that was somewhat fruity and boozy. Light to medium bodied and sweet, with a doctors office alcohol presence and a few hops in the background. The finish was slightly bitter and the alcohol lingered. I read somewhere that for health reasons the Russian government is trying to encourage the populace to switch from vodka to beer, and that may be a reasonable goal, but I don't think they're going to solve anything serving this stuff.

Poured at tasting with 2 others and I was the only one brave enough to swallow. Pale yellow with a weak white "head" little to no aroma and taste was same. Terrible, drain pour.

Not too bad, though I had expected something really terrible. Tastes a bit like Budweiser but with a slightly richer mouthfeel and more hopping.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a nice creamy head that lingers very well. Great clear golden color. Little aroma of malt and aromatic esters. Taste is weak, almost all alcohol with nothing up front and behind. Alcoholics dream. Not really hot on the palate as I expected. Very smooth actually. Interesting, but not very good.
