Tmoney99 (10091) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2007
Bottle from Belmont Beverage in Fort Wayne, IN. Poured clear pale color with an average frothy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Moderate sweet grainy aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture and soft carbonation. Light sweet flavor with soft sweet finish of short duration. Worth trying once.

Bottle 0,50L. Clear golden colour with small, frothy white head. Aroma is mainly hay, straw, some grain and cardboard I think. Moderate bitter taste and aftertaste with lively carbonation. Kinda watery. Regular lager, nothing special.

Bamsen78 (2413) - 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.

MiP (13047) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2014
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.

Erzengel (1923) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 20, 2013
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 (244) - SLOVENIA - DEC 8, 2013
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.

Zarkam (341) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 20, 2013
500ml bottle from a supermarket in st. Petersburg, clear gold colour, small soapy head. Aroma of grain and hay with notes of floral hops and grass, balanced taste. Light body, short bittersweet finish with a hint of starchiness. An ok fairly balanced lager, not too great anyway and some typical shortcomings.

Idiosynkrasie (3249) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2013
500ml bottle [4.4% abv]. Clear golden colour with small to average, fading, minimally lacing, white head. Grainy and minimally fruity yeasty aroma, ester-like with a cautious touch of pear and apple. Taste is monotonously grainy, minimally strawy; light, slightly watery.
