2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Convenience store purchase in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Russia. The name means "three bears." Pours clear yellow with a lot of carbonation bubbles. Huge pale yellowish white head that stays awhile. Corn in the nose. Taste is sweet with corn notes. Typical Eastern European pale lager style. Not gross, but not good.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
This beer’s aroma is skunky and slightly bready, and the appearance has a clear yellow color with a medium white head. The taste is slightly sour without much else to it, and the palate fuses an average carbonation, abrupt finish, light body, and a thin texture.

Pours yellow with a white head. Aroma is pale lager. Taste is also pale lager. Could be awesome if it weren’t for all the pale lager going on.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours golden yellow clear body with white medium lacing head. Aroma os include hops, malts, grains and some grassy notes. Palate is thin, watery, but also soapy with medium lively carbonation and mouthfeel. Taste is pretty clean and fresh and crispy, with some sweet malts and water taste taking over. Finish is short mild and lightly hopped. Overall not bad but has industrial taste to it, no wonder, the beer is brewed by Heineken. One bonus point for cool label.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Die Schaumkrone dieses Russens hält mittelmäßig. Im Geschmack ist es hopfig etwas herb-bitter, wiedermal ein Bier das den von mir nicht so geliebten einfalls Geschmack besitzt, wie in auch viele große deutsche Pils Biere haben. Geht so!

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
4 Huge grainy soupy aroma. Grains might be OK, but the soup is pretty messed up, it’s kind of a scotch broth/oxtaily, and as such reminds me of when I was sick and couldn’t hold down food.
2 Very pale, but quite persistent white fluffy head
3 Probably as scary as the aroma, but in a different way. This one’s dripping with swimming pool water, at least in the retronasals and immediate taste.
2- Thin, watery, and a little fizzy. Finish a little chemical.
6 Not completely lacking in flavour, but what’s there might be better absent. Thank you Heineken for producing another shit brew. Worst of all, I bet historically these guys brewed tasty baltic lagers, before the bean-counters took over.
