Bottle from a Eastern-European supermarket in Wuppertal. The beer starts very grainy and watery-neutral. Smooth and sessionable, but lots of grain and neutral bitterness. Not much sweetness, round and fresh, smooth and grainy dry in the aftertaste.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty terrible rust-malt aroma, and the rest isn’t much better, with the skunky taste I associate with the zhyhulivske/zhigulovskoe genre definitely present. This one is however much yeastier, which improves things, though I wouldn’t necessarily return to this one
