Draft, in Moscow. Again, not much individuality, just another Russian pale lager. I made the mistake of drinking it while eating a bowl of peanuts, and the stale peanut shell taste carried through to the beer. I had to have something native while while watching Russia’s opening match in the European cup, and at the Marriott in Moscow, it’s either this or Heineken... Heineken! This country needs a shot of pride in its local beers!

heemer77 (5210) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 5, 2004
My first from Russia. Very light gold color. A thin head. Smells of wheat and some sweetness. Slightly skunky. Flavor is subdued with very little character.

Suttree (5685) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 28, 2004
As plain as plain can be. Fizzy yellow, no aroma, no specifically bad flavors, but no real good ones, either.

jde123 (768) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 7, 2004
This beer pours like many american lagers, bright and cheery with just the slightest hint of urine. MMMM-MMM! Needless to say, this beer did not impress anything on me, bad smell, medioc flavor, palate like cola. Not a great beer.

r464 (2130) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2004
Pale yellow with minimal white head. Skunked, perhaps? Yucky bit of flavor in there. Not the crisp refreshing type of pilsener I enjoy.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 21, 2003
Very pale yellow with strong starting white head. Light head after that. Thin grassy-pine aroma. Thin taste and body. Slightly soapy finish. Smooth but more of a ghost of a beer.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2003
Aroma is pretty mild but both a solid maltiness and spicy hop (kinda like Saaz but not - Lublin?) Flavour isn't quite as exciting, but is pretty solid. Lightly malty, not too bitter but well-balanced. Bit of a weird finish. Not too bad though.

motelpogo (7701) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 21, 2003
nice joke by excematic about this bottle being very 'stary'. not nasty and offensive like many russian lagers. smooth, stale, golden and average

Ungstrup (31471) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2003
A golden beer with a beutiful bubbly head that collapses. The aroma is light with notes of malt and straws with a sour note (brewing cereal?) The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straws, and sourness. It ends on slight bitterness. The body is somewhat thin - especially for mine which was 5.5% ABV. All in all a boring example of an international lager - just a thirst quencher.

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2003 Tasted in Toronto from LCBO. Light yellow colour, grassy scent slight malty taste. However, very bland and watery.
