2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500 ml can. A malty nose under the pop tab, nothing wrong with that. Pours a respectable pale lager yellow, under a short fizzy head. Taste starts out pleasantly malty and fizzy, with a bit of bitterness on the tip of the tongue. But then I noticed a growing presence of corn adjunct. In fact, a bit like candy corn. The further I got into it, the less I was able to shake the off taste. With a bottled import, I try to be gentle given the likelihood having sat around for months, getting lightstruck, but in a can, I think I’m closer to the brewer’s intention, and the intention here was clearly another cheap Soviet lager.
