Aurelius (5006) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2004
Boring all over the board. Fizzy, not much flavor, loses carbo rapidly. Aroma is musky crackers. Not sweet, slightly malty. Inoffensive. Finish is thin and lightly malty, but it doesn’t cling.

bierkoning (12182) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2004
Awfully bitter, like too long cooked vegetables. Very soapy. Terrible beer, with horrible aromas and flavors. Drain pour (after two sips, one to find out this beer is undrinkable, the second to confirm this)!!

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2004
Straw colour lager with a small foamy head. Not much smell, just slight hops and malts and some skunkiness. Very boring lager but better than a lot of macros as it seems to have a creamy feel in the mouth. Worth a try but won’t have it again.

TBone (15909) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2004
Bottled (BB 07/2004)
Lager color, creamy white head. Very nice hoppy nose. Crisp mouthfeel. Steady malty body and bitter hoppy aftertaste. Some metallic notes.

DrnkMcDermott (2992) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2004
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 (5289) - 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 (6010) - 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 (773) - 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 (2254) - 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 (4902) - 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.
