500ml can - My buddy had brought this (and a few others) back from a vacation to Russia. While a Russian Strong Lager isnt quite what I was hoping for, Im happy to rate something rare and not found here in the States. The beer pours out a light golden yellow body, crystal clear with a standard 1" white head that melts quickly (pour a Bud Light and you get the idea). Aroma has a strange gunpowder-y smell combined with white wine. Flavor has a strange wine cooler kind of flavor...really fruity and kinda white wine like. Its actually pretty good, but after it warms up a bit it really falls apart.

EtTuCthulhu (1049) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUN 8, 2014
The beer pours a slightly hazy golden color due to the fine-grain sediment floating throughout, and a large cream-colored head sits on top of the liquid despite how it fades quickly. The aroma is reminiscent of dough yeast and bready malts, and the taste is quite sour and a touch umami. The palate fuses an oily texture, medium-full body, soft carbonation, and a sour and unpleasant finish

Sevenlee (1332) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2013
Pours a yellow with no much head. Aroma is malt, malt and more malt with some alcohol. Taste is a bit of malt with plenty of booze. Not my thing although my Brazilian friends got a laugh out of the name.

Zarkam (422) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 15, 2013
500ml bottle from hypermarket in Vyborg, 8.1% abv. Clear gold colour with an amber hint, small quickly vanishing fizzy white head, zero lacing. Aroma of light cookielike malts, not really any hops to speak of, lively carbonation, sweetish flavour with plenty of alcohol short acidic finish with more alcohol, full body. Nope, just not sufficiently drunk to finish this.
