Average lager, smooth, easy to drink. Has golden color with white head that lasts. Average carbonation, nice on tongue, does not bite. No long lasting after taste. . Nice summery lager

Poured from a bottle, Japan. Smells like metal shavings. Tastes like copper. Considerable head, but very soft and light. Very little taste, but what taste there is present is not a proper beer flavor, but a corn-heavy Bud Light flavor. Roughly comparable to Bud, a very tasteless lager.

At a tasting in "Sar Hamashkaot" in Ramat Gan, thanks zvikar, bought in Eilat, brewed in Russia, bottle, pours light yellow color almost without head, very slightly sparkling, strong malt aroma, slightly sweetish taste, light body, overall not a bad beer.

Well if Bud can do this for a foreign beer why can’t they do it for themselves. Nice taste and finish very good wuth sushi.
