VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 22, 2002
Clear chartreuse. Fast dissipating foamy white head. Light carbonation. Clean aroma, hints of sulfur, hard water and spicy/lemony hops. Crisp and bracingly biting. Sharp mouthfeel. Bitter and spicy hop aftertaste with some lemon peel notes. Quenching and easy drinking. Clean and hoppy with a delicate malt backbone. Hints of sweetness. Hard water finish with more lemony notes. Better than expected.

JPDIPSO (5657) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 11, 2002
Straw color with a decent white tight bubled head. Aroma of light floral hops. Light crisp malt flavor with a dry slightly bitter finish. Very nice light clean lager when cold. Fresh sample: Best By 18, 06 2003.

OD40oz (774) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - AUG 30, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2008 Not only does Russia have hot women but they brew good beer too. I expected a bottle of vodka with yellow food coloring but it was actually a decent pilsener. I would buy this again anyday if I could get it in South Dakota. Good old Ruski’s, you gotta love em.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 3, 2001
Golden-amber colour; fresh, grassy nose; biscuity palate, with a herbal-grassy hoppiness. Not especially bitter, but a pleasantly hoppy finish. Quite refreshing, and a standout amongst the world’s pale lagers.

Gooner (136) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2002
My first taste of Russia. Pretty good hops, pale yellow in colour and nice frothy head. As indicated in previous ratings, I’m not a big lager fan...but this was a good one.

rauchbier (3803) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2003
Bottled. Gold colour, good white head and moderate condition. Sweet malt and distant solvent in the nose, clean and malty in the mouth and lingeringly bitter in the finish.

Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 27, 2008
Bottled 50cl. Malty, buttery, smooth components accompanied by a hint of lemon. Slightly sulphury? A tad salty. Buttery finish with a hint of nuts (walnuts and hazelnuts) and candied fruits. Very pleasant. Flawless flavor.
