This is also known as Zhiguly Beer in the USA and says Zhiguly Beer in ENGLISH. If it says Zhiguly in RUSSIAN, that is Zhiguly (Russian Label). It is light, pale lager beer which recipe depends on the list of essential ingredients as clear and treated water, pale malt, granulated hops, its extract has been produced by the main bottom – fermenting yeast. All ingredients are inspected and belong to the best quality. While Zigulinis is being brewed, it is not allowed to use any unusual brewing materials that could artificially increase beer. Zigulinis is a refreshing, hop – tasting, a little bitter, light wheat beer, passing through strict fermentation process. This beer is also characterized as a firm froth where carbonic acid comes off slowly by small bubbles.

Look at my comments for Becks. I don’t think I could tell the two appart if I was blind folded.

Nose : Lightly sour with golden malted , dusty , oxidized aromas.4-
Flavour/Palate : Medium bodied , flat thin bready malts with raw hop bitterness. Chewy following , hint of dough. Bitter but with out crispness and aromatic refreshing feel, weak malt base does not fulfill formula.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Bottle - Labeled as Zhiguly: A light yellow golden with a slight haze topped by a quickly fading white head. Odd papery esters in the nose. The flavor is extremely sweet, yet never seems corn syrupy or adjunct-like. There’s also a late grassy bitterness that saves it. Not altogether a failure.

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - APR 23, 2007
Bottled. Golden yellowish in colour with a medium sized white head. Sweet and malty with notes of straw, metal, bread, alcohol and a somewhat fruity sweetness.

Ungstrup (34653) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 2, 2007
Bottled. A yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of straw, and so is the flavor. Nothing special.

faroeviking (10295) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 13, 2007
Goldenish. Short bubbly white head. Aroma of some malt and grains. Weak flavour of malt, bit sweet with a slight hoppiness. Thin brew.

BelgianBeerGal (3856) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2006
Bottle/Tap. Every bar/resturaunt in Siauliai serves this beer. I honestly thought it was refreshing but this was one of my only choices. I would not put a ton of effort into trying to get this beer unless you just want to say you drank a beer from Lithuania.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 7, 2005
Sampled from bottle. Pours clear yellow-gold with a thin, scattered head. Pour carefully - there is much sediment. Aroma is dms with faint spicey hops. Flavor is balanced and mostly flavorless with just a hint of adjunct-layden maltiness and a bit of hop spice. Light-bodied and well-carbonated. No need to import this crap pale lager to the US - we have plenty of our own.

shrubber85 (10756) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 13, 2005
Bottle. Sour, slightly skunky aroma. Orange yellow color with small quickly collapsing head. Sour malt flavor- moderate carbonation, little hops. Not offensive but nothing special.
