Golden, sparkly with a bleached head. Looks nice; I was beginning to doubt its Zhiguly credentials until I smelled it. The aroma is full of nice, clean rancid butter...fitting the style perfectly. The taste is caramel and butter, and the beer is light. Gets points for reflecting authenticity without sacrificing drinkability.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear pale golden beer. Huge tarty off white head.
Aroma; lots of toffee fudges effects, honeyish caramels, maybe some grains behind.
Taste; grassy notes overrun by honey floods, sweet caramels and honeybread.
A bit thin bodied, meadish mouthfeel.
Short a bit diluted finish, honey, caramel, butter, and I think I still have lots of honey perfume all over me...

Bottle. Like champagne - so many foam after opening. Bready aroma. Taste is full, bready, not so sour and with some hops. Aftertaste was short.

Draught from a stand in Odessa.
Pale golden colour with poor head. Fruity nose with slight butterscotch. Medium bitterness, very light bodied. Subtle flavour profile, but not any major flaws.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Classical Soviet era "Zhiguli" taste: floral and unclean with hints of moss and iron. One can find here much more than its strengthness suggests...
