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.

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.

ogivlado (6634) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 23, 2009
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.

Marduk (4500) - Reval, ESTONIA - AUG 27, 2013
Tap. Pale yellow color. Small head, somewhat stays. Sour, malty aroma. Grassy hops, grainy and very raw maltiness in flavor. I think this might be end of the barrel and its slightly off.
