Heavy sweetness to taste. Light body, sticky texture, average carbonation. Lingering slightly metallic bittersweet finish.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
500ml bottle from Auchan hypermarket on the outskirts of st. Petersburg, mainly acuired for a new country tick. Gloden colour with some largish chunks floating in it, medium frothy white head, fair lacing. Aroma is lactobacilli infection, sewage and vaginal discharge , oh my, never experienced this with a commercial brew. Taste is fairly vomit inducing, and somewhat sour, drainpour. Will re-rate if I find it again and if it’s from a batch not made on August 8th 2014.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. A clear, golden beer topped by a finger-thick white head. Fruity aroma with a touch of wet cardboard and grains. Medium body, soft carbonation, Some bitterness and fruityness, some wet cardboard too. Short finish. Not all bad this one, but rather useless anyway. Could drink few if in the area, but I see no use importing it to other markets. 141213

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can from Carrefour in Tbilisi. Pale clear yellow (kind of amberish even). Head fluffy, white, retains relatively well, leaves some lacing. Nose is slightly sugary, hops balancing between medicinal and herbal. Taste quite neutral, maybe on the sweeter side, malts naturally more dominant that the little, if any, hops. Body light to medium, carbonation moderate. Palate somewhat grainy but at the same time surprisingly soft. Finishes with medicinal bitterness. Overall - not exactly offending, but nothing to write back home about either.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
courtesy of Peter Ens - translucide pale golden beer under a giant creamy white foam; nice lacework; a fruity/flowery touch on top of a grainy aroma; mild and quite thin-bodied, a light grainy tartness and some bitterness; short and light dry flowery finish - all in all almost drinkable

Nothing much to say about this beer. Just an average European lager, nothing more, nothing less.
