Graphirus (48) - - OCT 17, 2013
Pours golden yellow with a medium foamy head. No lacing. Aroma of malt and hops, not much going on here. Tastes like a common pale lager, pretty boring. Mouthfeel is lively and light. Overall a pretty standard and boring brew and nothing else going on here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

djoeye (1207) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 25, 2013
50cl bottle, shop in Ukraine, Radomyshl Zhytomyr UA. Bubbly head on normal yellow body. Head vanishes and leaves only few dots. Scents of hops and hay. Taste; hops, hay, grains, hints of candy. Gentle but a bit slicky mouthfeel. Malts appear more in the aftertaste. Overall an average and easy drinkable beer. Kremenchuk UA.

Обычный лагер. Не лучший из Жигулей, но и не худший.

SamTheBarrel (376) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2013
330ml bottle, labelled 4.9% ABV, pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of white bread, hay and corn. Taste of white bread, corn and a hint of citrus. Slightly sweet, well carbonated and somewhat watery. An okay beer but forgettable and expensive in Sweden, what I liked the most was the classy looking label.

sinfull (781) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Pale yellow color with thin white head. Aroma is malty with some hops. Taste is sweet with bitterness in finish. Middling beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gurthnar (1504) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 13, 2013
Aroma is rather hoppy. Tetrahop to be exact. Clear golden colour, white head of poor quality. Taste is rather bitter with underlying syrupy sweetness. Astringent sourness in the finish. Really bad.

Zarkam (369) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2013
330ml bottle from hypermarket near Vyborg, some rust under the rims of the cap but didn’t seem to be leaking. Clear gold colour, small white head. Faint aroma of hay, medium body, sweetish taste. Quite balanced overall faint bitter finish. Nothing interesting overall but not awful either.

Cantabrian (776) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 26, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 In spite of the unappealing presentation, this is not bad. Starts with a typical aroma and flavour of a Pilsener,even with a bit of a metallic bite, perhaps an inheritance of times gone by when these Soviet breweries called it the "Viennese Beer", and finishes with a sweet malty spell, which is never cloying, not at all. I’m sure this beer must have been great for Siberian summers.

Thin scent. The taste is too thin and the little we know is water. Thin aftertaste. Drank this beer quite hot. It might be a little better if it is cold. However unpalatable it was, anyway. Follow me @ Kung av öl / King of Beer @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
