2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle from duty-free shop at the Vaalimaa Finnish-Russian border crossing, clear deep gold colour, small rocky white head. Aroma is bread, hay, grass, grains and notes of fruit, floral hops and citrus, taste is somewhat on the the malty/sweet side, fairly balanced anyway, bitter and not very long finish, medium body, soft carbonation. Not much difference to a very good bulk lager aside for a bit more depth in the aroma, quite refreshing and very drinkable nonetheless, from the huge Czech companies stuff I do prefer Uruquell a bit more as it has more significant amount of hops. On the other hand 16€ for a carton at the duty free and not much else worth getting, so I always make a point of buying one or two when returning from Russia.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
The color of this beer is a clear golden with a large foamy white head that fades rapidly. The aroma is a fusion of caramel and bread malts with dough yeast, and I’m glad to say that it is not skunked. The taste is slightly sour and a touch sweet, but this lightness combined with the palate (medium body, soft carbonated bite, thick yet slick texture, and abrupt finish) makes this beer quite enjoyable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: Discreet cereal aroma. hay and barn notes with little hoppy scent.
Appearance: Blond, very sparkling and clear. Little half creamy head lasting quite long. A little lacing showing up on glass.
Taste: Attack is malted, thin, with a slightly hoppy finish.
We can find some discreet notes of hay, earth and little caramel, but generally the taste profile is small. North American pilsners are generally more aromatic. Mouth feel is thin and and slightly sparkling.
