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.

Ernest (6232) - 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.

bierkoning (10275) - 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.

Aubrey (3433) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2004
Clear and deep yellow. Frothy-white head was nice at first, but it faded fast. Rich texture in the begining, but it becomes much thinner toward the finish. Even watery at times. Malts provide a medium sweetness, with notes of grains and crackers. Hops provide a little bitterness, with notes of herbs. Metallic off-flavor. Dryish finish.

teddybeer (2230) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 26, 2012
1.5l bottle. Golden colour with minimal and quickly diminishing white head. Aroma is grassy, herbal and slightly hoppy. Flavour is malty, cereal notes, grass and a final slightly bittery. Carbonation is medium. Body is light to medium.

Quack-Duck (7944) - 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.

gunnar (5326) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2012
0,5 l bottle from a supermarket in Berlin. Pours clear golden wth a small white head, lots of carbonation. Aroma is grainy, some boiled vegetables. Taste is moderate to well sweet grainy, very easy on the palate. Sweet corn, bad.

JonMoore (1867) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2005
Bottle. Golden colour with a slim, fast going, white head. Aroma has light malts and hops. Taste’s the same with some acidity. Light bodied. Not offensive particularly, just not very exciting.

pivnizub (8888) - 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.....
