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.

Mild malt nose. Flavor was lighter but inoffensive. Not all that thin, but light bodied nonetheless. A little sweet but decent overall.

A lager like so many others. Well, ok, it has some barley/malt in the aroma that’s a little bit pleasent.

Pours a pale yellow. Aroma is somewhat sour, as is the taste. Not a big fan of this one. Very watery and thin in taste, similar to a low-end domestic. Eh. Not totally offensive, but not so good, either.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 7, 2004
Pours a very pale clear golden with an airy, puffy white head. Dry aroma has a mild Saaz hoppiness. Body starts surprisingly semi-sweet with hints of cookie dough and caramel, before a more biting carbonation and dry bitterness take over. Quite drinkable and refreshing. This was much better than I had expected.

Damn I dislike the appearance of a yellow lager in a clear bottle. So I was actually pleasantly surprised. The beer was pretty much a standard lager. Nice malty base and a high drinkability. Still, definately too bland for me.

Fine golden colour. Both aroma and flavor leaves many wishes open. One positive thing is the bitter finish.

Deep golden coloured. Slightly grassy and herbal aroma. Malty flavour. A very drinkable lager.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2004
Nice straw color,small head that faded fast.Malty light caramelish aroma with a sweet side and cereal like quality.The taste was Malty and sweet with a slightly fruity side lightly hoped and clean finishing.There was a faint metallic taste at the very end but nothing to terrible.This was a much better brew then i was expecting,it still reminded me of some of the Macro's but over all it was quite decent and well worth trying again.
