Erzengel (2534) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 20, 2014
The beer starts smooth and grainy. Not very deep, but a bit sharp. The mainpart is malty-grainy, still a bit sharp and a bit unround-bitter till the end. The aftertaste is medium, grainy-sharp with a undefined bitterness.

MarkoNm (481) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAR 25, 2014
Another Russian beer. Pours a quite pale golden color, clear, with a decent white head of average retention. The aroma is pleasantly malty and grainy, easily picked up by the nose. The taste is slightly sweet at first, followed by a very nicely balanced body and a pleasantly bitter finish. One of the nicer Russian pilseners I had.

Zarkam (398) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2013
500ml bottle from supermarket in St. Petersburg, 4.7% abv. Clear light yellow colour, large, white, rocky mostly diminishing head, small amount of lacing. Light malty aroma of hay and light bread, light grassy hops. Flavour is very balanced lightly bitter and acidic with a hint of sweetness. Light to medium body, dry texture, lively carbonation, short lightly astringent finish. Fairly refreshing and very balanced bulk lager, fairly good even by Russian standards.
