First U.S. rater. Wooo, rock n roll. A little history on this beer. Zhiguli beer or Zhigulovshi beer is an old-time Russian beer, akin to PBR or Schlitz in America or the Yugo. Its a nostalgia beer. This version is modern remake. In the database you will find numerous beers with a similar name. I got this in BROOKLYN!!!!!!! at a Russian store on Brighton Beach. The place is loaded with E. European brews. Green glass, 500mL bottle with a twist off cap. Skunked, grass, overly-herbal, dry, astringent plain Euro-mass-produced-green-bottle-lager. Three sips and the rest gets dumped out. Cost was 2 bucks for a tick.

Quack-Duck (8382) - Down South, GERMANY - MAY 16, 2011
bottle from a local Russian supermarket. Clear golden colour, mid-sized, creamy head, quickly disappearing. Malty aroma with hints of apples. Shy hoppy touch in the finish. Lingering dry hop flavours remain. Rather nice, quite good for the style.

Flöska. Thin clear golden, short white head. Grain bit citrus aroma. Fair mouthfeel. Flavour of grain, some grass and citrus like. Quite simple.

Rune (8928) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 6, 2011
Thanks to MrSoul for carrying a bottle from Arkhangelsk to a social gathering at Sommarøya Arctic Hotel. Crystal clear, golden body, decent white head. Sweet corn to the nose. Sweet pale malts in flavour. Dry ending. Clean tasting and possible to drink, but way too sweet (Hillesøy, 26.03.2011).

Flaske 0,5l delt med med MrSoul, Rune m.fl. under hyggelig sammenkomst i Hytte 51 (Vestkanten) på Sommarøy Arctic Hotel 26 mar 11. Lys gylden på farge. Gjennomgående aroma og smak av søt malt med innslag av krydder. Egentlig bra men litt kjedelig.

DruncanVeasey (7424) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2011
Can, Estonian Sip and Tip Festival 2011, room 537, Meriton Grand, Tallinn. Clean gold, dwindling white foam. Inoffensive aroma of grain, light pine, ginger (?) and curry house soapiness. Slippery low fizz mouthfeel, papery spruce, white rice, card. Some rubberiness and corn in the aftertaste. Poor- although not as bad as expected. Down the sink with it.

DasMollengrab (34) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 15, 2011
Bottled. Medium thin bodied, lively carbonation, firm head. Mild aromas of dried figs and coconut, further slight exotic touch through hints of mango and cocoa. Restrained bitterness in the end. Not outstanding, but not too generic either. I kind of like its smooth character.

550 ml can in Germany. Pours a normal yellow color with a light white head. Aroma has citrus and herbs in it. Taste is watery but spicy. Palate is light but tangy. Not offensive. Drinkable

suurjuust (1550) - ESTONIA - NOV 14, 2010
Pours a nice pale amber yellow. Some hops, malt and a weird chemical smell I’ve also found in other russian beers, don’t quite know what that’s about. Taste begins with malt, and ends with a caramelly hoppiness. Surprisingly drinkable.
