2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Medium light gold color. Small head. Aroma is malty, sweet and cornish. A medium bodied pale lager. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. Kind of watery and flat tasting (dead carbonation) Hints of butterscotch. Way too sweet. Kind of bland and watery. On the plus side it has no signs of skunkyness. There is also a touch of spiciness to the hops. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Bottle says "Stolichnoye Lager Beer" with the word Premium, I think, in Russian on the neck. Says 4.7% ABV. Golden body with mild carbonation and thin sudsy head. Mild aroma of butterscotch and pale malt. Tangy, metallic flavor with noticeable sweetness. Touch of spice helps but fails to save this beer.
