This beer is all about sweet and sour malt and alcohol. In every way horrible disgusting! I’d rather drink pure alcohol than this beer!

I can see why this was $2 now. Clear golden colour, large head that carries a noticeably strong alcohol aroma. Taste is creamy, unbalanced malt character. and a taste that is strong in alcohol also.

The best Russian beer/Malt Liquor I have ever had. It poured with a nice head, started sweet with a malty taste and slightly sour/bitter finish. I liked it on the 4th of July..

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(bottle - 500 ml) Golden pour with a thick white head. Aroma is very light. What I could smell was corn, grass, bread, and some hops. The flavor is very sweet and malty at the front with a dry grain middle, some corn throughout, and a dry and slightly sour finish. Aftertaste is very bitter and sour. Thin-bodied with lots of alcohol present.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
For a malt liquor, really not too bad. The flavor comes off fruity, perhaps artificially so, and reminded me predominantly of apples. Fairly strongly malty, it was more enjoyable than its low rating would suggest.

It’s not every day one can say, "Not bad, for a Russian malt liquor." And it’s got such a helpful, clear commercial description: "Light beer with pure taste and aroma fermented of a malt drink and easy wine smack." Oh, well. Golden colored with a foamy white head, it’s got a fairly sweet, lemon grass aroma. Not a bad mouthfeel, quite spritzy. The taste is sweet malt with a dash of corn syrup and the suggestion of hops. The finish is fairly clean. Not bad, but it’s probably my last.
