Draught sample at Beers 2014 expo. Clear deep amber-brown. Nice aroma of milk chocolate and caramel. Really sweet and sugary flavor, with caramel, candy, a light chocolate note and a citric and slightly sourish finish. Watery mouthfeel. Really sweet.

Can, an amber beer with low hread. Aroma is on sweet caramel and grapes with a sourish background, no hops and low malt, strange stuff, Very sour at the finish.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours dark drown clear with reddish hue. looks like a Dunkel Beer. Head is flat, carbonation sink within a second Aroma is dark bread, little sweet maltiness. Palate is thin , flat to medium carbonated and light. Taste is malty, with sourish, citric taste mixed with bread sour flavors. Overall It is refreshing drink, similar to Coke or Pepsi but has more character due to bread fermentation. Unfortunately this mass Kvas is too sweet, due to sugar added. The original Kvas has the sourness but not the synthetic sugars. It is OK to drink, but not comparable to real handicraft Kvas making. Good alternative to your Cola or Pepsi.

Bottle. Pours fizzy dark brown with no head. Clear, non-aggressive aroma of rye bread. Richly carbonated. Bready with sourish finish. Not bad for a mass market kvass.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
1 liter plastic bottle.
It pours a clear cola brown with no head.
It smells like rye bread, fruit, and chocolate.
It has a low carbonation. It is tangy, with some caramel, rye, and sugar.
Not one of my favorites. I guess I should stop messing with kvasses now.
