Released in 1997. A pale beer that wonderfully quenches thirst on a hot summer day and warms during the winter. A taste with a pleasant hoppy bitterness. 10.5°
Formerly 11°

S5L1T5F3O12 Nice big friendly 17 oz bottle. Like a bomber but smaller. Clear pale yellow ubiquitous appearance. Friendly aroma, yeasty and all. Taste is simple and refreshing, no ill attributes so far. Almost lemony or citrusy at times and carries with it a definite pilsner attitude with the slightly sharp lager hops. Rather enjoyable cheap pale lager experience. $1 per bottle at J.R.s in Rochester Pa. Looking forward to more of these. The lower alky beer character is reflected in its kind attitude. Goes down way too easy for a lager lover.

This was a nice Russian brew which was fairly malt-driven and otherwise nondescript, aside from moderate yeastiness. Plain, and versatile for food pairings. Pleasant.

Can from a neighborhood market in Vladivostok. Pours a clear golden yellow with a moderate white head. Aroma is pale malts, toasted grains, biscuit and light citrus. Flavor is toasted grains, biscuit and citrus. Eh, drinkable, and just another Russian pale lager...

Pale golden beer... with a thin white head. Lean pale malt aroma. A bit of minty/herbal hops. Pretty clean tasting. Light pale malt and a light sweetness. It’s very simple, but it really isn’t bad.

Looked an tasted like an average American mass produced wheat beer. Many other Russian beers are MUCH better.

OD40oz (774) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - DEC 13, 2008
Poured golden with a small white head. Slight skunky aroma. Not too bad of a beer. Had a grainy taste and a metallic aftertaste.

1L Bottle - Golden in colour with a small head. Yeasty and malty aroma with some bread and citrus. Malty taste with grain which is easy to drink. Quite refreshing.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 29, 2008
In the 0.5L bottle from HyVee CB. A straw-colored golden beer with a poofy white head. Has a slight essence of skunk at first opening, but not so overwhelming that it resembles a Pauli Girl. Mild boiled vegetable aroma. A clean beer with a nice mid-point bitterness. Slightly metallic finish. Not bad for $1.89.

Radek Kliber (7165) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 8, 2007
Bottle 500 ml
Appearance :Clear medium deep golden lager with short living rather small top.
Nose : Initial fruity character replaced with grainy slightly vineus-alco hints. 4+
Flavour/Palate : Medium light bodied . Grain-fruity middle. Plain malty brew with little hop presence. Fruity sweetness and some semi dry alcohol finishing. Quiet boring even for standard pale lager.
