UPDATED: JUN 6, 2014 Bottle (50 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear golden, medium fluffy head. Grainy, hayish malt aroma with some herbal hops. Medium to light in body, with prickly CO2. Well balanced with a good bitterness in the finish.

Pours golden in color with a thin white head. The aroma is malty with hints of grain. The taste is just like a pilsener. Very easy to put down.

I enjoyed this beer. Aside from the slightly sour aroma it’s a very refreshing brew. Flavor is well balanced and slightly favors sweetness. It won’t wow you with its complexity, but this beer is a solid choice, especially during these summer months.

Bottle. Slightly skunky smell. Thin head and slight carbonation typical of the style. A slightly sweet malt flavor. Would make a pretty good session beer.

bottle. clear golden color. Nothing too exciting about this one. I can taste some corn, little sweetness at the end. Not terible though

Russo (1719) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - APR 28, 2007
Bottle 500ml. Very nice beer, looks like a golden color and a little head. The aroma is good and flavor is dry, but nice palate. I prefer drink at Hofbrauhaus in München! :) Cerveja muito boa, com uma cor dourada e uma camada certa de espuma. Com um aroma bom e um sabor seco e amargo, mas deixa um gosto bom após uma boa golada. Eu ainda prefiro beber no canecão na própria HofBrauHaus em Munique. :)

I really didn’t like it. Was very very skunked. Not enough hops for me. I would never get it again. Way too sweet.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2007 12 oz. bottle. Pour is clear golden with a nice white head. Aroma has some inital skunkiness, but this passes quickly to a nice malt aroma with a hint of hops. Taste has a balance of malt, hop and a nice grassy - bitter finish. You need to pour this one with a big head to get the skunk out.

slippery slidey and slight astringent finish. weak barleygrain taste. and this from the tap! malty earth flavors that are one dimensional. kinda veggie taste (i hate that) but not offensive. there’s a balance of sweetness to smooth it out.
