3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl can from mix markt, lisbon. Ok, this is quite a moment, my first kvass ever. Let me breathe before I taste this. Color is very dark copper to black. Head is very thin. Carbonation is not that high. Taste is medium sweet and salty. Aroma is rye, caramel, sugar, bread and butter toast (jeeeeezzz).

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of rye bread, but not very intensive. Minimal head. Lightly sour, light sweetness. A bit watery. Not bad, but a bit disappointing compared to for example Khlebny Krai 7 Zlakov - too watery, too sour, aroma is not very rich. PET bottle, expiry date October 18, 2013.

500ml bottle, 1.8 % abv, from the store that sells East-European beers in Rethymno, Crete. Beige head. Slightly cloudy brown coloured body. Smell of sweet malt and bread. Sweet malty taste with the support of figs and raisin. Soft drink impression. Refreshing, but a tad too sweet (hotel room 13.09.2013).

I shared a can of this with drabmuh at my house last Sunday. Thanks Matt! This was one of the coolest, most thoughtful, worst tasting beer gifts I have yet received.
The appearance is brown with a thin head that quickly fades, leaving no lacing. The aroma is sweet malts with sugary caramels. The taste is just overbearing. Ridiculously sweet and instantly cloying, I just couldn’t get more than a few ounces down. It was really cool to try a kvass for the first time, but I did not find this beer, or perhaps even this style, to my liking.

Canned (thanks CueSheet). Deep amber colour, small head. Aroma is sweet malts, some caramel, raisins and mild smoke. Flavour is quite much the same.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Haket during Gothenburg Beer Festival 2011
Sampled on Friday September 2, 2011
Clear brown color, tan head. sweet sirupy scent. Sweet raissin taste. Smooth mouthfeel, no bitterness.
Some at the festival cursed this and called it disgusting, I mainly call it sweet, like liquid raissins, even I with my sweet tooth couldn’t drink too much of this one, but for sipping it wasn’t bad at all!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sample @ Gothenburg Beerfest 2011. 2-9-2011
ambre claire, beige
Arôme est super doux et sucré avec note biscuité rappelant un sucre caramel dans le style cassonade.
En bouche, bière basse alcool axée sur le malt et caramel, léger biscuité avec une pointe de houblon.
Pas mauvaise pour ce niveau alcool reste sucrée, mais sans plus.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from can at Gothenburg Beer Festival 2011. September 2, 2011
Pours dark brown, thick and syrupy, almost like oil, no head. Aromas of plums, jam, syrup, honey, nots, grains and malt. Very bread-like malt character. Creamy and thick, very sticky. A nice interesting low alcoholic that I imagine would go great with deserts. I look forward to trying more Kvass!
