1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
500ml bottle from a convenience store in St. Petersburg, 4.8% abv. Clear yellow colour, small fizzy mostly vanishing white head, fair lacing. Moderately malty aroma pf hay and bread, light grassy hops. Taste is initially slightly sweet and a bit acidic turning into a light bittersweet finish with a chalky feel. Light to medium body, dry texture, lively carbonation. 13 in a dozen bulk lager with not really any faults aside for being boring.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head: white, smallish, soapy, poor retention. Colour: yellow, clear.
Aroma: hops and malt sweetness (minty lollipop), some bready/doughy maltiness too.
Taste: moderate malt sweetness, a bit of hop bitterness, CO2.
A clean and crisp helle-like lager, no off-flavours. Quite up to german standards. My bottle was more or less fresh (~1.5 months).
