500ml can. Pours gold with a small soapy white head. Aroma is rice, malt metal notes. Aroma and taste are similar to an Asian lager (as a previous rater pointed out), seems like one of the Japanese macros. Alcohol is pretty noticeable for a 5.3 percenter.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Siberian lager from Omsk, from a 50 cl bottle with all-Russian label. Snow white, crackling head consisting of tiny bubbles, leaving some lacing but slowly diminishing and opening, with only the edge remaining stable. Clear pale golden blonde colour with quite some fizz. Weak aroma of rice and perhaps corn, sourdough, iron, cheese, light bready maltiness and very faint grassy hops. Taste light sweetish, grainy with a sourish hint of rice, as in an Asian lager; somewhat oily mouthfeel with minerally, initially somewhat sharp carbonation; vague bready malts lie underneath. Finishes in a thin grassy hop bitterishness but a solvent-like chemical wryness shows up as well, fortunately in a very subtle form; otherwise minerally like spring water, with some of the grainy sweetishness lingering on as well, and I’d swear I could detect some ’jenever’-like alcohol touch too, very briefly and faintly. In all, just a little bit less ’bad’ than expected, but still below average and mediocre at best. Nevertheless interesting to taste a Siberian beer... Thanks to Sabine for bringing me the bottle all the way from Moscow.

Blond with fast disappearing head. Looking for aroma is wasted time. Body is light, texture thin. Overcarbonated. Nothing on palate. C@H

Golden pour with a foamy, white head that is gone quickly. Nose is malty with a hint of grassiness and some fruity notes. Nice bitter edge. Thin, lively carbonation. Decent brew.

Pours a yellow colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, a bit of corn with some rice. Taste is not very exciting. Boo!
