1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
500ml bottle (Regalia, Tallinn) - shared by Marduk - thanks!
Creamed corn, mashy sweet honey grainy, porridgy - popcorny. Watery palate, fizzy. In the mouth this is disgusting with full-on diacetyl backed up with its sister in crime pentanedione, if I interpret that honey sweetness correctly. Papery finish. Wow - this is probably the most flaw-ridden beer I’ve ever had that hasn’t actually gone rancid. They’ve wrapped the diacetyl/pentanedione flaw up as a feature - myagkoe implies the sweet mild taste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Quack-Duck: Golen, big fluffy white head, mild buttery and woody-hoppy nose; light to moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied, not watery; slightly lingering pale-malty and mild hoppy finish. Good by russian standards.....

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle from a a local Russian supermarket. Clear golden yellow, mid-sized white head. Malty, slightly hoppy with a Bohemian character, reminding of a Czech 10° vycepni pivo, a bit milder, perhaps. Good.
