COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Life in Czarist Russia was not nessarily easy and simple for everyone - but the great taste of beer was available to all! Originally brewed to quench the thirst of Peter the Great (Czar Peter I), Tinkov Russian Lager has been served to both royalty and the common worker alike.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2004
An orange beer with a fine dense white head. The aroma is very sweet and grainy. The flavor is also sweet with notes of grain and straw. A nice refreshing lager.

Bottle in Tomsk, Siberia. Beer came in a clear but pretty bottle. Pale golden color, small white head. Tastes slightly malty with a bit of malt as well. Not bad, not great.

Tried this on a lark. Not as bad as I anticipated. Pretty weak bodied but had a little bit of flavor. Hoppy but not overly bitter. Once was enough though.

PorterPounder (5473) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Pale gold cloudy, leaning towards specimen appearence, light white head, no lacing. Aroma of orange cake mix with extra doses of yeast thrown in. Sour flavor, with too much of an emphasis on yeast. Has some biscuity notes in there as well with a tad bit of candy sweetness. Mouthfeel is thick, decent. Overall, about the most redeeming thing about this one is the classic painted bottle - it just says Russia all over it - looks sharp.

larsniclas (5594) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2004
Bottled. Golden with an ok head. Grassy, malty and hoppy aroma. Fine bitterness with a lot of both maltiness and hoppiness.

rlgk (10276) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2004
Yellow/golden, small head. Aroma is clearly grassy and with some hops. Flavor is both malty and hoppy, and ok balanced lager with a malty finish.

Bottled. Dark golden colour. Rich, grassy aroma. Malty and flavourful with herbal notes. A twin brother of Tinkoff Bock?

jimmack (1222) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JUL 20, 2004
Sampled at Brewtopia ’04. Pale yellow with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus and pale malt. A little sweet at first, finishing with a slight hop flavor. Tastes like a typical mass produced Euro lager.

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 19, 2004
Hazy yellow with an average frothy lager head. Aroma of sour lemons and mustiness. Flavor is slight malt sweetness and very watery on the tongue. A little hops in the finish. Drinkable, but nothing special here.

Brewtopia’04. Billed by the rep as ’the world’s best pilsener. Well, I don’t know if this stands up to well to other pils from that part of the world, but it was at least drinkable. I tasted with trepidation. Light and a bit cardboardy in its sweetness. I used it as a palate cleanser and it worked fine. It’s no Budvar.
