2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
500 ml bottle from supermarket in Vyborg, 4.9 abv, clear gold colour, small white almost instantenously gone head. Aroma is bread and floral hops, a bit of paper in the mouth, otherwise fairly balanced taste, fairly bitter herbal finish. Light body, fizzy carbonation. Quite boring but drinkable, but on the other hand decent amount of alcohol and almost half cheaper than most other beers in that shop, but this consideration is useless as it’s Russia and if you want to get drunk for cheap the only proper solution is vodka. Actually the latter applies for the rest of the world too now that I think of it.

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.
