2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 (Iskusstvo Varit Cheshskoe Barnoe) Bottle 500ml at home, poured into a glass tankard, ABV 4.9%
Clear and bright golden yellow colour on the body, small and thin white head, with average retention, leaving light lacing on the glass.
Sweet and very malty aroma, some cereals too, sugar.
Taste is also sweet, again very malty, basically follows the aroma, sugars, cereals. A subtle bitterness on the aftertaste.
Thin body, carbonation on the low side.
Overall nothing special, maybe okay to accompany a dinner.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
The beer starts smooth and malty. Slightly grainy. The mainpart is smooth, full-bodied, not too deep but also not bad. Highly drinkable. The aftertaste is long, malty-grainy with only a slight bitterness.
Highly drinkable and ok for a Pale Lager, but nothing special --> 7/12/8/7

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale golden colour, filmy head. Aroma: grain, cereal. The body is light to medium. The taste is dominated by sour notes. Finishes with malty notes and a little hint of hops. I didn’t detect the proclaimed on the label Saaz hops. Generally a very mediocre lager with nevertheless decent palate.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2014 Decent light maltiness, grainy, bread with some butter and apples (?) This makes me think about some synthetic assistance. Thou. .even if it is there, then its quite a good job x) Faint hops. Mostly sweet with light bitterness.
Actually its quite drinkable and works like good thirst quencher
