Suttree (5594) - 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 (767) - 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 (2074) - 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 (7258) - 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 (30818) - 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.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2003
Nothing particularly interesting about this beer. Seems to be just a standard lager. Tastes fine.

Betty (235) - Walgett, NSW, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2003
What an odd beer. It tasted stale, but that kind of stale which gives you the impression that it used to be good. A hint of breakfast-cereal-box cardboard. What the hell is that hops? I wrote in my notes that it has to be Saaz mixed with pride of ringwood mixed with pride of ringwood which seems to be clearly innacurate and actually mentions the same hop (pride of ringwood) twice. A little watery. Not too great, but glad to have finally had a russian beer.
