100cl can. Lots of fresh bread and a bit of lager hops in the nose. Darker kind of gold in color, clear pour, thick head that goes from " to 0 in 15 seconds (not what I expected actually). Some sugars in the first mouthful, light bitterness in the middle, and again sweet aftertaste. Bread and some salt once again. Surprisingly well bodied beer - more than medium, but less than full. Pleasantly thick but not so creamy. Soft carbonation. Excellent example of Russian made pale lager. Good companion to light meal and salty snacks.

Ljusgul i färgen, vitt skum. Doftar och smakar ljus malt lite unket, gräsigt citrus, papper. Typisk dålig int lager.

Leini (1177) - SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear golden with a low white head. Malty, with a hint honey and a brief orange peel bitter finish, along with an aroma that reminds of an old rag.

agent_persik (504) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 20, 2013
Golden colour, minimal head. Light hoppy aroma, a bit skunky. Bitter-sour taste of chemical hops, unpleasant finish. Couldn’t finish the bottle, quite bad beer.

Piwo od kolegi za free. Piana ładna i puszysta. kolor piwa podobny do czeskich lagerów. Chmielone nawet solidnie bo właśnie finisz jest goryczkowy i to wyraznie. Sądziłem że będzie to słabieńkie piwo. jednak nie było aż takie złe. Fajna i nieczytelna dla mnie etykieta i odkręcany kapsel, czego tez się nie domyśliłem.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2013 Erstaunliches Lager, das zwar dünn und hell in der Optik ist, aber reich an Aromen, die an einen hellen Bock denken lassen. Warm, minimal schokoladig mit etwas Toffe. Erstaunlich schwer und leicht süßlich. Eine feine Überraschung.

McTapps (5213) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JAN 3, 2013
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Deep golden colour with low head. Nose of ripe hops. Taste of a weak Heller Bock or of a strong Dortmunder/Helles, means rich grains, malt, ripe mild fruits and the feeling you have on a sunny summer day. Surprisingly nice PL.

Bottle from SB. Citation fr.o.m. MichaelJackson:" there is absolutely nothing wrong with this beer, but there is also absolutely nothing extra with this beer. " Just another pale lager. Drank it cause I now have another country in " My collection". Russia; Check! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2012
0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Golden color. Sweet honeyish and grainy aroma with hint of floral citrus. Dryish honeyish flavor with herbal, earthy and peppery hops. Herbal bitterness and some roughness in finish. Light bodied. Not bad in international lager category.

larsga (6556) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2012
Medium white head. Coppery body. Caramelly sherry aroma with papery floral notes. Dry-sweet spicy caramelly grassy taste with grainy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish herbal caramelly grainy aftertaste with floral notes. Really nice. Completely unexpected that this should be such a high-quality brew. (0.33l bottle from some supermarket in Moscow.)
