2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle from European Shop in Rotherham - can’t believe I’m rating this, I only Googled Kvasa to find out what I’d ended up buying when I thought there was nothing interesting available, so walked out with a random European soft drink and ended up on this page. Pours a cola coloured reddish noir with a thin soon gone head. Nose is a weird malt cum raisins with the taste similar to cola with a malty aftertaste. Anyway, going back to Google now to find out wtf kvasa is now.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle at CBC Clerkenwell, thanks to Jack! Honestly quite disgusting, this beer (?) smells, tastes and feels like a boiled mix of coke and brown sugar caramel. Tough to drink by the ounce, it’s more of a ticking experience.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle picked up from Alytus, consumed @ Paul’s birthday. The pour’s deep brown with a small head. The nose is coca cola, brown sugar. Moldy bread. The taste is very sweet toffee, sugar, some weeds. More bread. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, a bit too sweet for my tastes.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle courtesy of jackl.... It pours deep brown with a small beige head. The nose is cardboard, wood, toast and burnt caramel. The taste is caramel, cola, intense sweetness, sugar and processed store-bought cake with a sweet, sugary finish. Light body and moderate to high carbonation. Wow....! Disgustingly sweet. Not an enjoyable drinking experience.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Plastic bottle at the ChrisO Holiday Tasting, London - thanks to the King of Kvass, Leighton; that is, me. Pours clear, light brown with a faint, white foam head. Plastic and wet, brown bread aroma. Stupidly sweet flavor - impressively so - with liquified raisins. Light bodied with fine carbonation and a syrupy mouthfeel. Embarassingly sweet finish with caramel, bread, demerara sugar. Impressive that a beverage can be so sweet and remain a liquid. Not a huge fan.
