2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Really hides the alcohol well. Very smooth drinking. Mildly carbonated, and somewhat sweet. Not grassy or skunky. I would rate higher if it had any flavor, but it was very plain. Overall not bad at all.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Serving type: bottle
Apearance- Pours a golden yellow with a nice white foamy head and good lacing
Aroma- A crisp smell of malt and hops
T/P- Taste is like a standard lager with a bit more bitterness to it mixed with some sweetness.
Overall- It is drinkable, not the best around pretty average a very typical lager with slightly more flavor.

Golden colour. Basically an explosion of malt ,sweetness and alcohol .All of them not really balanced.

Bottle. Golden body, light bittesweet taste, not offensive. Medium to heavy carbonation, thin to medium body, watery texture. Nothing special.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This grew out of a partnership between Efes and Baltika. So this is similar to Efes Extra, a very good strong lager. Pours pale yellow like a good pils. Great foamy white head, fades slowly with some nice lace. Aromas of alcohol, apple, yeast. Tastes of apple, light hops, sweet fruit and malt. Good all-around lager (by the way, it’s bottom fermented). I’d have it for a daily drinker -- beats hell out of Bud and Miller.

Was debating today, new beer or Stone RIS, new beer, or Stone RIS . . . went with the new beer, bad choice. Aroma is nasty with hints of sweetness and yeast. Pours clear and pale, little head. Flavor is dominated by a sweet fruitiness and an alcoholic finish. I mean, it has some aroma and flavor to it, it is just nasty. Ugh, gonna be tough to finish.

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.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.
