Pale golden with a dense head. Aroma has some dusty hops and some butter. Flavour is quite short and has more hops and butter. It all ands on a watery note.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Restaurant Kazak, Helsinki). Nice lager looks. No remarkable nose, but flavor has some really nice hoppiness and some sourness. Very tasty and excellent companion to russian food, loaded with sour cream.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle in Russia. This must be the Bud light of beer in the Russian world because it is the cheapest beer at only $0.15 making it cheaper to buy than water. Still even the cheapest Russian beer is better than a Bud Light. Pretty much your typical and average lager.

Typical lager look, aroma and taste - hops, bitterness; a bit alcoholic. Nothing to write home about.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This bottled brew poured a small sized head of frothy large sized of unnoted length white colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body contained average carbonation, was transparent and light orange in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild malt hop . Its mouth feel is initially smooth with a lingering palate and a mild malt hop bite in the finish. Its flavor contained slight astringent malty notes. A very average brew.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Hazy golden color liquid that seems to pour rather thickly. Small lid of dirty white bubbles. Dry industrial malt aromas. Pale honey sweetness followed by yeasty malt and an odd melon like flavor. A hint of herbal bitterness. Just when I thought it was safe to start drinking some of these again.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Small white head that was mostly diminishing with fine-small sized bubbles, transparent, carbonated, fair lacing, and a yellow hue. Aroma was malty and sweet. Flavor was sweet, malty and tingly tasting. Tingly mouthfeel. Light-medium bodied beer. Not much going on here.

Very light, earthy, metallic taste. Golden. Quick finish, almost no aroma. Yikes - that’s one fast brew.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Plastic bottled, 1.5 liters, 4.8% ABV, 14% gravity, drank @ fridge temp, brewed 5/2004, BBE 8/2004) Golden color with small but lacy head. Slightly sweet, quite mild, neutral aroma. Quite fruity, sweetish flavor with some bitterness towards the finish. Smooth, light to medium-bodied palate with balanced carbonation. A very easily drinkable, smooth and reasonably refreshing lager. Quite a nice surprise, considering that it comes in a large plastic bottle with only cyrillic text (except for "beer") on it! After 1.5 liters, you'll be begging for more...
