Dark reddish brown a bit hazy color, minimal head. Sweet aroma of caramel, sour apples, some yeast and metallic notes. Taste is sweet with mild dry finish, has caramel, malt, bread, yeast, raisin and some other dark fruits. Light body and fizzy carbonation. Quite nice drink, enjoyable and refreshing. This year it is a bit different than it used to be in previous summers, and I like it more.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
1L plastic bottle. Dark brown, minimal head. Aroma has some light roast and acidity. Tase is sweet and sour. There is a very light roasty character that makes it drinkable. It just needs to have more bready taste to be a good kali (kvass).
