0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
the first time I had something like this was in 1988 in a mountain suburb of Kocise Slovak Republic. The World Cup was going on we were also drinking shots of some lighter fluid they called "rum". good lord.
Anyway, this was poured out of a big bottle warm, into a tumbler. No head, big infrequent bubbles. no lacing, smell corn, dandelion, dry wine. Taste sour corn, cheap Chardonnay, white pepper, almost no carbonation. gaggy corn syrup. Yuck. A ton of hops would make this a perfect triple IPA substitute...yuck

Golden color,small white head.Aroma of corn and grain with the alcohol definately showing itself.Flavor was kind of sweet and sort of hung on the pallate a bit.Corny for sure with a bit of graininess and the hops are faint,gives a slight burn on the way down but not to bad.I love Malt liquors and this one is decent but not great but,better then alot of American versions iíve tried,it works for me.

Bottle has EXTRA LAGER 8% ABV. Pours a golden yellow with a short lived head. A sweet lght flavor of malt, this goes down well for a strong lager.

This horrible abomination of mankind came in a single, 51-ounce plastic bottle purchased for $2.29. We drank them while wandering the cold streets of Chicago in order to get liquored up before the Dead Milkmen concert. This beer tastes like industrial waste, rotting raspberries, swamp water, molten PVC piping, caulk, and sugar syrup all mixed together in a mildew-covered bathtub. We decided to ditch these awful beers and just waste all our money at the bar instead.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
OK, most people donít seem to like this very well, but I donít mind being in a minority. I like the design a lot--the brown bottle with the big 9 is unforgettable. It poured with a thin, foamy head that sank quickly. The body was a clear yellow-gold, nicer than your average pale lager. The aroma was sweetish and yeasty, quite nice to my nose. The flavor was a lot richer and more interesting than most lagers: fruity and a little wheaty, almost hefeweizen-like but without the bloatiness I dislike in wheat beers. The palate was OK, not too watery and some warm tickles going down. The 8% ABV is definitely present; this stuff packs a wallop, but I found its other qualities worthwhile too. The dregs were unpleasant, but overall I liked this quite well and will definitely get it again. Itís good value where I am, $2.05 for more than a pintís worth.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
I was curious to try the beer after a recommendation from a friend. Poured a golden color with a reasonable white head that left a lace which remained for a short time. Overall, not a great beer in my opinion, but the price of it was good.

Sampled in Russia. Tastes much better when compared to the other beers available in Russia. Did you know that the only American beers available in Russia are Miller Genuine Draft and Budweiser? This is definatly better than those two. Kind of like a malt liquor. Marginally acceptable. Try it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is the kind of beer that I REALLY shouldnít like, but thereís just no helping me sometimes; this tastes just fine to me. Tastes and smells like honey kvass with hops added. It finishes a bit like a bourbon whisky; corny, grainy and a little woody- bracing, but it invites you back in. Nearly amber in color- looks like cheap maple syrup straight from the microwave. This is what I buy when I want to get VERY drunk VERY quickly and not have too much to complain about as far as taste (itís a little like drinking a loaf of bread, soggy with hard liquor). It warms you up like no other. Gotta be good for that Russian winter.

Jet fuel labeled as beer - a hangover waiting to happen. The worst commercial beer Iíve ever had - and Iíve traveled the world.
