Pale Clear Yellow Color, Short Lived Medium Head, Scarce Spotty Lacing. Sweet Malt with just a hint of Bitterness to Finish. Medium Body, Soft Carbonation. Easy To Drink. Pleasant Surprise as it is one of the better ones for the style and region. Plus it is Low ABV so it is not as harsh as most of this brewer’s Beers clocking in at 9.5, 12 or even 15 percent... OK for what it is...

500 ml bottle. Pours golden with white head and soda-like carbonation. Aroma is of fruit juice and hint of hay. Body is medium and smooth. I’m not sure what is inside of the bottle but it taste like sugary soda. Not even close what Zhigulevskoe should taste like.

Golden color, medium white head. Aroma of malt and corn . Taste is same. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Notes of alcohol in taste don't look good. Moderate bitterness in aftertaste. Average brew.

16.9 fl. oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber colour with a small, short lived, off-white head. Aroma of malt, fruit and corn. Sweet flavour of corn, fruit and malt with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with a thick, sticky texture and soft carbonation. Not too bad for a lager.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 It took some sluthing to find this mother on RateBeer but I did it and I am proud to be the first person rating this fine, fine beverage. It pours a nice golden orange w/ a thin but long lasting head. It has a pronounced grainy aroma and is pretty sweet to taste. It is not terribly heavy but maybe a little thicker than I would prefer in the style--or perhaps it just needs a touch more carbonation. Unless you consider a pretty strong corn-like grain character (but buttered popcorn/diacetyl but maize) to be a flavor flaw, this is pretty clean which, combined w/ a decent amount of bitterness in the finish, makes for a pretty drinkable lager beer.
