Douberd (2223) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle 500ml at home, poured into a glass tankard, ABV 4.9% Took me quite some time to find it on the database, a bit disappointing that it’s not a real russian beer after all this effort. Pale yellow colour on the body, tall white head, soapy, with very good retention. Medium lacing on the glass. Aroma of grass and straw mainly, a bit faint but not offensive. Taste is sweet, malty, with metal notes on the finish, some grass again bit also some noble hops. Mildly bitterness. Medium thin body, good carbonation. Overall not bad at all, refreshing and quite clean, I could drink more if offered.

DwarfeD (905) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2014
50cl bottle at home. Clear golden with a medium white head with low retention. Light body with low to moderate carbonation. Bitter with some sweet tones. Malts, hops and grass. A lager...and that’s about it.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht malzig, getreidig, leicht süß. Geschmack leicht malzig getreidig, minimal herb.

Quite tasteless beer. Indeed disappointing that it doesn’t even results in a country tick.

Martinus (2798) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2013
Clear golden colour, slight white head. Aroma of butter, malts and hay. Light bitter flavour, sweet malts. Light bitter, sweet malty finish.
Nothing special, a pale lager. The shopkeeper told me this is a Belarusian brand, big disappointment to see it is produced in Bavaria instead.

kermis (4953) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2013
Tasted at ZZT 7 supposedly as a Belarus country tick thanks to Martinus. Pours clear light golden with a white head. Aroma of butter, light malt, light caramel. Flavor is light sweet and bitter. Light bodied with soft carbonation.

caesar (5063) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2013
Bottled @ ZZT VII, thx to Martinus. Clear yellow color, short head. Aroma has a bit flowery hops, butter. The 1 year old homebrew pilsner with homegrown hops I’m drinking right now is seriously way better than this commercial brew. As long as it gave a country tick, but even that didnt happen. Thanks a lot Martinus! :P

Bottle shared with McTapps. Simple and metallic in the taste with no real aroma. Drinkable but not enjoyable stuff.

McTapps (3948) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Clear and light golden colour with low head. Nose of hops. Taste of amber, metall, bitter hops and green grains. Very metallic and bitter finish, just disgusting.
