2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 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. 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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
