1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from vending machine Helsinki station in St Peterburg. Consumed at breakfast time... It pours deep brown with a decent fizzy beige head. The nose is rather sweet and pungent..... loads of cheap brown bread, malt extract, malt loaf, cake, earth and marmite (although that is a disservice to marmite). The taste is a bit better thankfully....sweet, tangy dark malt, caramel, malt extract, cola, dried fruits, fruit cake, earth and cheap candy. Light body, moderate carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. I really disliked the aroma. Fairly basic Kvass...

Last sample May, 2014. A decent KVASS. Suits very good to make traditional dish Okroshka. Drinkable as is. Better than water or fizzy drinks. Not beer in general. Refreshing and energizing. Loads of sugars.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2L PET bottle (Jaamaturg, Tallinn)
Pleasant sweet malt extracty aroma, a little bit sodawatery. Pours dark, briefly fizzes. Taste as per the aroma, but does have some nice raisins. Palate sweetish, but refreshingly carbonated, a little watery. Nothing jumps out and says "yum", I’m missing the citrussy buttery breadiness, but it’s a fine re-hydrater on a hot day.

Thanks to Mora2000. The smell is very caramel, butterscotch like, sweet, and candy. The look is amber in color. The taste is really sweet, and candy like. Better than expected.

Plastic bottle from Seymour, Summer Secret Santa 2012. Pours dark reddish brown color with no head. Fruity and malty aroma. Tastes like a diet fruit drink. Light, watery body with no carbonation. Weird stuff. Thanks Seymour.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Another weirdo Russian beer from a plastic jug- thanks, Seymour! Pours a dark brown amber color with a small tan ring for a head. Aroma of sweetener, dairy, chocolate, and toast. Flavor of sugary diet cola, artificial sweetener. Light-bodied, with a sweet mouthfeel and low carbonation. Weird. Not the worst thing ever, but weird.
