COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A remarkable lager whose natural ingredients and brewing method create a uniquely pleasant bouquet. Some beer drinkers note a hint of spiciness, others say the aroma reminds them of a gentle breeze in a pine woods. Called Petrovskoye in Russian. The brew’s mellow taste is due to an extra special variety of yeast. Brewed from 2009 at Bochkarev.

Golden with a lasting head. Some hensfood in the nose. Quiet bitter with flavour from hop and some bitter herb.

Complex Russian Lager. Lot of flavors battling around here - kind of grows on you after awhile but by the end of the 16.9 oz you are glad you only bought one. Fruity, slightly malty aroma. Quickly dissipating white head - orangeish appearance. Kind of a rotten vegetable flavor - similar to some Marzens I have had. Overall, very yeasty. Not altogether bad - just not an everyday beer. Bit of a funky aftertaste.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2004
Golden coloured. Slightly fruity aroma. Sweet and fruity flavour. An average lager from Russia.

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.

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.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2004
(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...

Aurelius (4178) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2003
Interesting aroma that's a cross between malty lager and Belgian golden ale yeastiness. A stern Cossack on the label, a good sturdy homebrew bottle, honey-golden brew and a tall white head earn this a 5 in appearance. Flavor is lightly sweet, malty and strongly tinny-bitter. Loses fizziness quickly, good viscosity, finish lingers tart and mid-tongue bitter. Tinny on the lips.

hotstuff (4096) - Indiana, USA - DEC 16, 2004
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.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2003
UPDATED: APR 12, 2004 On draught at Balsjoj Festival Piva, Moscow. Golden color. Aroma of hens food. Somewhat bitter all along. I had hopes for worse...

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2003 Hmmmm. Quite different from ordinary Russian swill beer. Has a somewhat interesting malt flavor. Refreshing and decent. The bottle says "Petrovskoye".
