1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
1L PET bottle from kiosk in Kiev. Dull, flat gold. Grainy, husky, and bland aroma with little to no diacetyl and only mild phenol. The palate is likewise relatively clean for the style. Although tacky on the tongue, it is not oily like most zhigulis. The granular, husky pale malts are the predominant characteristic. There are no overarching flaws, although it does get cloying after a while. Light and fairly inoffensive.

Dull straw with a slight haze. The aroma is slightly toasty, with an almost imperceptible hop spice. There is a touch more hop spice on the palate. Fairly clean for the style.
