1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. Finally - one of my most sought after beers! Pours hazy golden with lively creamy head. Citric nose. Light bodied with creamy malt. Citric and fresh, most likely past it’s prime (after all it’s a zhivoe pivo), but who cares? It’s a simple, yet drinkable from a wonderfully weird Stalinist place. Shouldn’t this count as a beer from the USSR?

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden-amber. Thin head. Aroma is a bit buttery, as per CCCP. A little bit toasty, some light diacetyl. Ok, for a Soviet-style brew.

Thanks to Boystout for arranging this amazing trip, and for helping me to bribe the border guards to get home. Bottle. Clear golden yellow color, small white head. Aroma of citrus, straw, white pepper. Taste is plain straw with a medicinal and metallic aftertaste. Weak body. Definitely the best Transnistrian beer I’ve had so far!
