Beer fans will fully appreciate the excellent taste of Bochkarev Light. The combination of several types of malt gives it unique nuances, a soft aftertaste, and a light bitterness of hops.

Bamsen78 (4388) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear pale golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of hos and yeast. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with estery and (sparse) malty notes. Sourish overtones but the bottle was 3 months past the BBD. Not that bad, though, for a Russian Pale Lager.

Bottle, 4.4%. Metallic aroma. Clear golden colour. Small unstable white head. The flavour is slightly bready, but clean enough. A bit anonymous, but does have a bit of malt.

The beer starts very watery. Nearly no carbonation. The mainpart is watery as well, Slightly malty, a bit bready, but mainly watery. The aftertaste is water as well, Some bitterness, but only subtle. Highly drinkable, but malt with water…

MarkoNm (1419) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 8, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2015 A nice Russian lager, which feels light in taste, but still offers enough taste to really enjoy it. Pours with a typical golden color and a very weak white head. The aroma is hoppy, not strong but neither too weak. The taste starts between sweet and neutral followed by a generous hoppy bitterness. A nice combination of bitter and sweet which will freshen you and is easy to drink.
