Kruzhka Svezhego is prepared with the use of special technology, a gentle pasteurization method; that is why its taste is as fresh and rich as fresh draught beer. The shelf-life of Kruzhka Svezhego is very short (4 months) because only natural ingredients are used in the production of this beer. http://www.efes.kz/en/page/97

,5l pour from refrigerated can into pils glass. Translucent, golden yellow, very well carbonated, fizzy head. Nose of damp grains and pale malt. Light body; unobtrusive. Same for the taste. Mostly watery with an unpleasant bitter leafy taste in the background. Do not recommend.

Bought in a supermarket in Kazakhstan. I wasn’t impressed when I found out that the lid wasn’t on properly as beer was seeping through the unopened pull off cap. Anyway, the taste was fairly decent and rather smooth. Well drinkable but falls under the average beer for me because it lacks anything unique.

Clear light yellow with white foam head, lacing to glass. Aroma is dominated by barley, some sweetness. Taste is velvet pale ale, very smooth, nothing outstanding in taste. Aftertaste is short. (Pavlodar 201302)

Thx. to Klaas for sharing this one for the benefit of the glorious nation of Kazakhstan // 500 ml. with a pull of cap, a brilliant idea unquestionably invented by the glorious leader whose penis you are not worthy to hold in your hand // bottle is green like Kazakhstan’s fields // sampled @ Tim’s De Molen & assorted beers tasting // pours a very, very, very pale potassium yellowish with even a slight green hue, a head as white as the fine whores of Turkmenistan // bottled on 25/08/2012 // aroma is a delightfully light smell of skunk, beautiful pure grains, clean metal, potassium, fresh spring water, very clean filtration perfection, pale lager genius // taste is lightly sweet skunky grains, light corn, almost a very light malt liquor touch to it, pale malts, pure metals, lager goodness // pure, smooth, high class filtration // honestly one of the least offensive pale lagers I have had so far // very, very, very nice // in the freezing fields while singing songs of praise to the leader this must be acceptable // I am certain that the Borat jokes made this seem better than it is

Martinus (4495) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2013
Blond, light golden colour, white dissipating head. Aroma of malts, light hops. Light sweet, light bitter flavour, rice or corn. Rather sweet finish.
The Borat national anthem definitely improved the experience of this beer. Quite epic.
(From 0.5L bottle at the DMT @ Tim’s living, Gent. Bottle date July 2012. Brought fresh from Kazakhstan by a colleague of Klaas. Thanks for sharing, Klaas!)

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2013 30/XII/12 - 50cl bottle @ home: De Molen & assorted beers tasting - bottled: 25/VII/12 (2012-1416) Thanks to Klaas for sharing the bottle!

Clear pale yellow beer, creamy white head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: hay, grains, stable, bit sweet. MF: soft carbon, light watery body. Taste: grains, some citrus, hops, bit skunky, lots of potassium! :-p Aftertaste: little bitter, skunky, dry. Pretty boring, but not as bad as I had thought. And if you take into account the 4 month shelf life, we drank it past the expiration date. Sorry! If only we could read Kazak! :p
