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.

One of the most interesting Russian tastes which could be described as "yeast and wheat domination". I would call it Hoegaarden Grand Cru Light or Slottskallans Kloster Light for its unusual Belgian character. The draught version is pretty much the same as the bottled one.

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".

Aurelius (4230) - 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.

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.

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.

(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.

Like austinpowers says, this is different from most russia beers. I has a slight pasta smell and aroma. The russian beers I have been sampling (3 of 6 that I have) have poured with a pretty large head that turns into a white chunky floatiy bits on top in about 5 minutes. Flavor is mild fora lager. This is still pretty good but it still proves that Russia makes good Vodka not good beer.

Bottled, 5.2 %
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.
