big brown plastic bottle(2500ml). -Slightly better than Yachmenniy Kolos Svetloe that I’ve tried few minutes before, but in general same crap. Pale yellow coloured, medium sized creamy (chemical) white head, stale dusty nose with hint of corn. Lively carbonation. Weak malty, stale bready and brewing cereals with light bitter finish.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours yellow with a very small amount of soapy head. Almost a sticky-sweet aroma to it. The taste is very sweet, a hint of orange in the aftertaste. Not sure what to make of this, its not a bad tasting beer, but the sweetness just seems a bit odd.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Nothing really inherantly wrong with this beer, if you keep it in the context of a lawnmower beer (which was exaclty the case when drinking it). Aroma was slightly metallic, a little sweet, not much skunk and a bit of chlorine. Appearance was dark gold in color, slightly hazy with a small sized head which dissapated quickly enough for me to pour my whole beer in my glass in one shot. Mouthfeel was light and crisp, not harsh by any stretch of the imagination, but it wasn’t anything most lagers have. Flavor was a little sweet, also a little metallic but really not bad. It went down smoothly and quenched the thirst and I didn’t wonder if I’d just drank a bottle of toxic waste like some Euro lagers I’ve had in the past.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 Bottle 2,0 liters. Light and much fading head. Limpid yellow color, watery and little fizzy one. Simple scent with fresh grassy and light malty notes. Medium taste, much traditional one and without peculiarity. Medium fizz, discreet alcoholic tenor, moderate bitter, watery final. Altogether satisfactory even if nothing of special.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gold. Clean nose with light grainy malts floral, herbaceous hops along with a hint of apples. The beer is slightly sweet a touch skunky with a providing yet light hop character, which actually gives some bitterness, aroma and floral/herbaceous flavor. Clean, grainy malts. Light body. A pretty damn good pale lager. Very enjoyable on an 85 F day in Colorado.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium yellow with a quickly fading head. Malts were only mildly sweet and reminiscent of multi-grain bread. Hops actually provided a little bitterness, and had notes of herbs and mild flowers. More flavor and more bitterness than the other two I had from Ochakovo. Still, it had an underlying similarity that was undeniable ... and it was kind of boring.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty
(grain/bread), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is
lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Slightly more
bitter and fuller-body version of the Original. Decent.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yellow-gold. Thick white-yellow head. I suspect it to contain ferroxides as stabilisator. It dissipates all the same.
Sweet smell, maize, even like tinned maize or corn syrup; brown candi sugar or very cheap honey. With retrospect to the smell, surprisingly metallic-bitterbite - nothing refined. Basis
is malt-maize sweet. Light to medium bodied, not watery. Metallic taste keeps hanging around to the point of obstructing the palate (of the taster). Cheap, adjunct-ridden lager. Yet is has more taste than a lot of world-lagers. My bottle said 4.7% ABV.
