Finn fem fel? Ja, några rätt prickar Zhiguli inte in i alla fall. Om det är möjligt att framställa ren menlöshet och sedan buteljera den är det så här den skulle smaka.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled from Systembolaget
Pale golden with a very brief head.
Sweet, malty, bready aroma along with some medicine-notes.
Pretty sweet in flavour, though still refreshing.
Caramelle and butterscotch; a bit liked burnt mash.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Obviously not a a best in class lager, but fairly decent - I was pleasantly surprised (maybe because my expectations were incredibly low). Pours a clear amber with a very small off-white head. The beer has a high wort level and this comes through in the aroma. Lots of bready malt, a hint of caramel and slightly earthy yeast. Pleasant so far. Taste is also clearly influenced by the wort - there’s a malty sweetness that’s balanced with a medium bitter finish. Body is a bit light, but not uncommon for the style. Fairly low carbonation as well, which I personally prefer.
