2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2004 Sampled fresh in Kazan at a KB beer tent
Golden colour with artificial, bleached head. Minty, sagey hop aroma - like a mix of Chuvash and noble hops - with a slightly caramelly malt note. Pale and caramelly malt notes lead things off with minty hop notes over top. Malty finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Usual pale lager body-straw yellow with a fading foamy head. Nose-old malt, light dust, light macroness. Taste-lots of clean fruit esters, milky/lactic mouthfeel, lime, medium sweetness, sugary, plum, white grape skins, very light skunk masked by the aggressive sweetness, corn water. Tastes like a well done macro that was sweetened with artificial sweetener.

Cloudy dark yellow color with a medium head. Strong aroma of apples in a barn. Gernerally a grassy taste with a less than savory metallic tang on the finish. Iíve had far worse swill that this.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The beer pour an amber color with a bit of head. The beer smells of yeast and malt and hops. The taste is more on the malt with a sutle sweet finish. Body is thin but not watery. A better version of Bud. A clean finish. easy drinking

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale pale yellow/gold, pours with a frothy soapy head and leaves no lacing. Aroma is sweet malts and some alcohol (? - itís only 5%, shouldnít smell alcohol). Taste is not horrible, but not something youíd really want to drink again - prickly carbonated sweet thin malts, dusty and slightly metallic at the finish.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Johnís Market in Portland, OR. Brassy gold color with a minimal white head. Not much aroma. Medium body with fizzy, creamy carbonation. Flavor is rather spicy, like pepper or ginger, though not strong or distracting this is the principal taste impact. Finish is quite pleasant. If the bitter/ spice is hop, Iím not familiar with the type. Super spicy noble hop? Nice change from the usual East Euro lagers.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Glass Bottle from Belmont Party. Poured a clear pale color with an average frothy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Moderate grainy hop aroma. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Light sweet flavor with a light sweet finish of short duration. I would not recommend this to a freind.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, husks), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), with a note of soap. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The usual industrial character, with perhaps a touch more hop aroma than normal.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
This is the type of brew that I classify as "non-offensive," which basically means that thereís not much to it, but it neither makes me cringe as it enters my mouth, nor makes my stomach gurgle uncomfortably as it hits bottom. Pale gold with a rapidly diminishing head, it has a sweet perhaps-malt aroma. Soft and watery in the mouth, the flavor is a light, sweet bready malt with a combo tin/floral hop bitterness. The finish is when itís over, because thereís little aftertaste to talk about.
