3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bright copper-orange, totally clear (and still) beer under a small to medium, yellowish head. Dry malts and some faint cookie malts; rainwater, bit grassy. Faint sweetness; with a streak of non-sugar, artificial sweetness in the very end. Not disturbing, though. Bit of corn, dull, faint oxydation. Fiinish is (apart form that artificial streak) nearly empty. There is carbonation. And it’s heavier than water... barely. Well, what did you expect, Nicole? Txs, Stef!
