COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
12°
Translation from Russian:
One of the ingredients of this style is corn, which was used for the preparation of beer by even ancient Aztecs. Corn gives the bright golden color to beer. Possessing the classic hoppy aroma, this beer is characterized by the unusual taste, which is given to it by corn.

bierkoning (10379) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2003
Sold as Ochakovo Classic in Nordhorn, Germany. Golden color, frothy head, fading away slowly. Grainy, caramelly aroma and flavor. Very little hopbitterness, just a bit buttery. Not too bad, but unexciting.

pivnizub (8919) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 13, 2011
Plastikfass 2000ml (Diky, Quack-Ducku!): Pale golden to golden, with a greenish sheen, small but stable lacy head; dusty-grainy nose with a strawy-sourish touch; light to moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light bodied, a bit sticky; increasing bitterness towards the grainy-sourish finish. Almost drinkable.....

MoritzF (8562) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUL 18, 2011
(plastic bottle, 200cl) Clear, pale golden colour with a mid-sized foamy white head. Moderately sweet malty and corny aroma with shy grainy spots. Sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a flat carbonation. Corny, doughy and slightly grainy malty taste; slim malty and slightly corny finish without any noticeable bitterness to speak of. 15.VI.11

Quack-Duck (7958) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2009
2l plastic bottle. Clear golden yellow, mid-sized head. Malty nose. Malty with a sweet accent, dusty and cardboardy hoppy flavours. Quite all right, on eof the better Russian beers, to my opinion - and unpasteurized.

Ernest (6258) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 24, 2004
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. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Quite watery and thin, but pretty clean for a Russian beer, and with a mild aroma that is not unpleasant.

larsniclas (5635) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2007
