dtborelli (322) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Yerevan Zhigulyovskoye Pours clear pale gold with a frothy white head. Best part of the beer. Downhill from here. Aroma is rotten grass and skunkís ass. Flavor is cardboard and watery to the extreme. Maybe some lemon. First beer I have drain poured in a while. Awful. If you happen to be travelling in Armenia, drink the yakís milk instead. Shit.

bhensonb (14077) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Green bottle from Toal Wine in Roseville, CA. Pours pale gold with a foamy white head. Skunk? Or grass? In either case the aroma is not strong. Itís a little earthy, musty - but thatís not strong either. Med body. Slightly bready. Itís not skunk. Itís sort of earthy grassy hop. Or maybe it is skunk. If so, itís not got the burnt rubber hint I usually associate with skunk. Finishes bitter. Pretty good for a pale lager, tho the aroma is confusing.

yespr (40417) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and yellow with a creamy white head. Mild sweet cornish aroma. Flavour is cardboardish dry and mild spiced. Light bitterness coming through towards the finish yet also a vague fruity accent. Might be a good beer if it wasn’t filtered.

omhper (23428) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2006
Bottled. Golden colour, rich firm head. Bready malt aroma. Sweet with pleasant deep, papery malt flavour and soft mouthfeel. Lightly buttery and lightŲy yeasty, but the cellary flavours I associate with many Zhigulevkoe versions Iíve tried is thankfully missing. This beer is actually quite good - I give them special credit for the malt profile.

ClarkVV (5781) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 15, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2005 2004 bottle from Mountainview plaza wines. Medium-sized white head slowly recedes to nothing, with light lacing. A deep yellow, with light copper-orange highlights and a touch of haziness. Aroma of mineral water, soft lemon and light honey, a bit of crisp lager yeast and hints of dirty, earthy hops (or maybe just dirt). Light touches of DMS grace the palate at most; this is by no means a bad sample. Flavor begins with a large malt sweetness, mildly grainy (vienna-like malt) and fluffy in the mouth at first. The carbonation in this beer dies off too quickly for my liking, however and much of the glass is quite watery. Hints of lemon and lightly grassy hops, getting more watery as it warms. Finishes with some paper and mop bucket flavors, but they arent dominant, really. My biggest complaint is that it just gets too watery. Medium body at first, though. I enjoyed it, it certainly wasnt skunked or sour or adjunt ridden.

Ernest (7319) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), with light notes of skunk, dishrag. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A rather skunked example to start with, but once that died down some sense of normalcy entered the picture.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Easter Sunday tasting w/ Ernest, Aubrey and Brian. Light pale color. Skunky, butter toffee aroma. Light grainy, watery taste with mild, floral hops. Not disgusting.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Clear, gold hue. Skunky, papery nose. Lively carbonation; thin body. Cardboard, light corn, white bread. Mild sweetness in the background. Skunky, pungeant hops. Faint element of lemon.
