Pours morning urine yellow with big foamy white head. Sickeningly sweet. So sweet I couldn’t finish a 16.9oz bottle. Most of it went down the drain.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2007 Light medium gold yellow pour with little white head. Smell is an odd mix of Alcohol, yeastiness, and a chemically smell, so in other words, not great. Taste was similar with a bit of bitterness, sort of malty sweetness I guess, and a bit alcoholic. Not very good, and wouldn’t get again.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2012 Bottle from Matt Geyer at CAH. the plastic bottle looks like a giant but plug. Pours dehydrated piss color. Nose of floor cleaner and morning after a frat party. First sip is spoiled cider with boozy formaldyde. Finish is least offensive part. Russian Colt 45. Prrobably the worst beer I ever had.

If a Malt Liquor and a Strong Cider were to have a baby, this would be it. Sweet alcohol and malty notes along with a gross cardboard flavor is pretty much all you get with this beer. Along with the flavor, the carbonation is way too intense and feels really bad on the palette. It’s a Russian Malt Liquor calling itself a "Strong Pale Ale", avoid this at all costs!

Very light gold color. Small head. Aroma is slightly malty and sweet. Its very sweet, lots of corn added?. The corn flavor is balanced by a strong alcohol flavor. No hops to speak of, yet there is some bitterness whose origin I don’t really want to know. This stuff is really awful. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is chemical and bitter.

Very very light in colour, with a white head. Almost no aroma, but some detectable metallic smell. Somewhat sweet taste, but thats about it...Nothing more than a flavourless, colourless bottle of russian water....with eight percent alcohol squeezed in somehow!

Pretty terrible. The first and possibly the last russian beer I will try. * Had this at a beer club meeting with many other beers, hence I don't remember all my comments - only the ratings which I wrote down at the time.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2005 Light golden color, sweet alcoholic aroma and taste, light thin body, light thin alcholic finish. Sh*t

Bottle. Far too malty (burnt), no head, and a crap hoppy finish. Rus is not known for her master breweries... just her wodka!

Pours golden with thin head. Grassy, dusty aroma. Flavor is sweet, alcohol, grainy, not good. Coats the mouth in a bit of an awful way. Texture nearly invokes the gag reflex.
