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.

vipinvelp (2187) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2013
Clear pale yellow with white foam head. Aroma is earthy, some barley. Taste is bit sweet, malty, earthy. Not the best beer Heineken is brewing. (St. Petersburg, 201305)

ElGaucho (2207) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2003
Strong lager aroma. This is currently the 3rd highest rated Russian beer on Ratebeer, albeit with only 4 ratings. This is your basic, average lager. It is rated highly because the beer in Russia isn't all that great. However, for lager lovers, definitely worth a try. Aurelius gave this a 5 for appearance. Not sure why, except that, from his description, it appears he considers more than just the beer for this category. The head disappates almost fully and there is no carbonation to speak of to spruce up the pale yellow body. One of these days, when Russia has spent a few more years outside of communism, and commercial competition heats up, the beer will get better.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2008 0.5 l bottle. I just discovered my favorite thing about Russia: you can buy beer and liquor at streetside kiosks, some of which are open 24 hours, the local stuff is rarely more than a dollar, and you can pretty much drink from the bottle while walking. Of course the problem is that you usually get what you pay for. This a St. Pete brand; it’s actually a bit darker than the usual pale lager, kind of whiskey color. Walking with the open bottle kicked up enough foam to run over the top. Taste is pretty malty and nicely balanced by bitterness... but this seems to have some bottling or production problems, because it had that gross wet salty peanut smell of contamination. Too bad, because this had some potential.

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...

500 ml bottle. Finland. Clear golden colour with small white head. Malty aroma with some cardboard and notes of hops. Sweetish malty flavour with some crisp hoppiness. Goes well with Russian food.

Bottle. This beer poured with no head and was a yellow orange color. This beer is a very sweet beer that reminds me of the mass produced American beers like Miller, Bud, etc. Nothing special going on with this beer.

Zarkam (421) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2013
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.

bierkoning (10204) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2004
Sold as Zhiguljevskoje for a German importer, with only the Stapan Razin trade mark on the label, but it should be the same beer. Only a hint of sweet apples in the aroma. Sweet apple flavor, otherwise bland and virtually no hops. Slight glue aftertaste. Beer that makes you sad.

FatPhil (9346) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 11, 2008
500ml bottle (Kasakka, Helsinki)
Straw colour, brief head. Almost no aroma. Fairly fizzy palate. Initially quite a fruity estery taste. Soft malts too, but fairly thin watery body. Slightly papery in places. However, the whole litre was drinkable without any pain and anguish. Great salty gherkins to go with it!

Rune (8047) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2012
500ml can, as Stepan Razin Petrovskoe 1795, 4.9% abv, kindly shared by Elisabeth. Next-to-clear, straw coloured body, Low, white head. Fragile lacing. Smell of sweet and dry, pale malts. Herbal hops and malts in flavour added a kind of candy sweetness. Papery dry palate. Minimal carbonation. Rather bland impression. Below par for the style (session in Tromsø, 19.06.2012).
