FTA: A simple example of Russian lager. I actually have all of the Stepan Razin caps and some of the labels in my archive. Loved the brewery.

Zarkam (538) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 17, 2014
500ml bottle from supermarket in Torfyanovka. Clear yellow colur, small fizzy white mostly dissipating head, little bit of lacing. Aroma of grain, grass and a hint of apple. Taste is initially fairly balanced and slightly acidic, turning into a short acidic finish with a hint of bitterness and a chalcky feel. Light body, dry texture, lively carbonation. A very inoffensive bulk lager that doesn’t taste very well made, better to avoid.

KoNrRiI (1229) - Århus, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2013
0.5 bottle. Pale golden color, and a big, white, frothy head which even leaves some lacing. Obvious pale lager aroma: pale malts, some hops and barnyard aromas - very hackneyed. Taste is corny too, has a lot of cereals and a touch of malts, not hop at all. Light body, thin texture and average carbonation. Finish is rather short and has even more grain. Overall the beer like most Russian lagers I have tasted is good in respect that it’s not awful, drinkable too.

DSG (12153) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 8, 2007
Bottle. 4.0% ABV. Golden color with a collapsing medium white head. Malty aroma with light notes of hops. Flavor is sweet and malty with some hop bitterness in the finish. Light to medium body.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2005
(Bottled, 4.0% ABV) Paleish golden color with a quite small, lacy head. A sweetish aroma of honey-corny malt and some acidity. Corny-malty flavor with some added vegetables and very little hops. Light-bodied, somewhat foamy-carbonated palate. Definitely not interesting, but still a bearable brew. Lacks most of the good features of Petrovskoye and Admiralteyskoe.

Ungstrup (34634) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2004
A yellow beer with no head and no aroma. The flavor is malty with notes of honey and hops. A boring pilsener.

Hildigöltur (5105) - København, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2004

bierkoning (12561) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2004
Frothy head, diminishing slowly. Slightly hoppy, soapy aroma. Medium bodied. Malty with a firm hoppiness. Some caramel and diacetyl. Some dirtiness in the aftertaste.

rickgordon (3853) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2003
UPDATED: APR 12, 2004 On draught at Balsjoj Festival Piva, Moscow. Golden color. Slightly sweet in flavor. Some hens-food aroma with notes of toffee...I had hopes for worse...
