Very hazy pale golden thin white head. Fairly malty aroma, lightly appley with a bit of honey thrown in for good measure. Flavour is lightly appley, some herbal, minty hops. Decent bitterness on the finish. Alcohol noticible. Drinkable with a few rough edges.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500mL bottle. Semi-sweet corn and wet cardboard scent. There’s some formaldihide and acetone scents showing up in this one, along with a slightly hoppy note, that’s more fuesal than grass-like. Syrupy and semi-thick texture, some nasty hairspray and chemical flavors. Pasty and putrid at times... perhaps it’s carrying some radiation Komrad.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500mL bottle.. recommended by my Ukrainian friend. Deep golden pour with a smattering of white head. Sweet somewhat floral aroma with some alcohol present. Mouthfeel is grainy and almost metallic on the finish. Flavor was sweet, but also had some stale flowers and an unidentified funkiness. Composition was also reminiscent of a malt liquor (there has to be some corn in there). Finish was smooth and slightly warming.. especially as it warmed a bit.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2006 Rearate Not sure what I was thinking back then...full of alcohol and corn. Hint of fruitness and cake mix sweetness redeems it somewhat. Overall, though, sticky, starchy, and too strong. Original 3.3 Aroma - starts out with the usual mild skunkiness but turns a bit spicy and not unpleasant. Quickly dissipating head leads to a cloudy light orange pour. A bit of a complex flavor - somewhat fruity - reminds me of a cheap Belgian - has some bitter maltiness and a thick mouthfeel - slightly yeasty as well. High alcohol content is evident but not distracting. Overall - an odd "pilsener" and probably the strongest I have had.
