Erzengel (2560) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2014
0.5l bottle with screw-crown cork. Grainy nose. The beer starts grainy-fresh, a bit sweetish. Grain, sweetish, nice bitter, but a bit too sweetish-grainy. The aftertaste is sharp, grainy sweetish, not too bad.

1l puszka z rysunkeim (stare sowieckie samochody i ludzie na plaży) - jak na rosyjskie piwo w puszce (te ich piwa w puszce niestety jeszcze często czuć metalem) nie jest najgorsze. Jasnożółty kolor, krótko utrzymująca się piana, dla mnie trochę za kwaśne ale trzeba przyznać, że dość fajnie wchodzi. Przywiozłem sobie to piwo z Kazachstanu więc przejechało kilka tys. km :)

dnicolaescu (738) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUL 23, 2014
BOTTLE 50CL. Look: clear golden, white medium frothy to creamy with average duration. Aroma: grassy and slightly spicy hops, some grain and bready maltiness, some harsh (mineral?) notes Taste: malt, light sweetness, some harshness, light to medium spicy bitter finish.

Not bad - got some lageresque problems, but a touch of spicy hops compensate for that.

Douberd (2222) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2014
500ml bottle, bought at a small shop in Thessaloniki, Greece and brought home. Into a big Guinness glass, ABV 4.9% Deep golden yellow colour on the body, lazy activity in it, small and thin white head on top with low retention, leaving minimal lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty, some grass and light bread. Okay taste, lots of malts and sweet at first but there are some hops on the finish giving it a nice and long lasting bitterness. Medium thin body, average carbonation, mildly dry palate. Overall quite good, and surely better than I expected.

venom666 (332) - Alicante, SPAIN - JUN 3, 2014
Clear golden color with white foam. Classic Lager aroma, malty and grainy. Sweet taste, with malts and hops that provide a bitter aftertaste.

goozen (2928) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle 0,5ltr: Clear golden colored brew with an grassy smell likes "Beck’s" but intenser, way to sweet bitter taste at first buts weaking in sweetness and with hints of liquid corn. Expected worse with this Russian beer.

armando629 (2408) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 24, 2014
0,5 l botrle as a gift.
Pored clear golden with a small white lacing head. And nothing more to write about. Some malt both in the nose and flavor. Dull, empty.

Beerhunter111 (7176) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht malzig, getreidig. Geschmack wässrig malzig, getreidig, minimale Bitterkeit.

kerenmk (2300) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle. Clear gold. Aluminum, corn and paper aroma, then some cow-dung too. Mild bitterness, corny and papery taste. Light-to-medium body, a little flat, too long finish.

YesWeCANBottle (1) - FINLAND - MAR 22, 2014 does not count
Shared 1.0 liter can having Soviet Pin-Up style illustration presenting summer beach. Pours clear pale golden with slight white head which is vanishing quite quickly. Greasy smell with hints of butter. Light bodied with minimal hops and low bitterness. Oily aftertaste. Light and easy drinkable Russian lager. Not bad on its own category.
