UPDATED: FEB 29, 2012 Suprise of the year. It came in a boring green bottle, and I belived it would one of these tasteless very very light pale lagers. It had a lovely deep golden colour with a small white head. A mild malty nose. Also a fresh mild malty flavour with som well blended hops. Medium carbonation.

Ser att andra recensenter ger denna öl rätt lågt betyg. Själv uppskattade jag den väldigt mycket, för att vara en pale lager (som inte är en favorit annars). Lite mörkare kropp än brukligt, med ett skum som stannar kvar acceptabel lång tid. Fina fräscha dofter av skogspromenad och vanilj. I den rätt söta smaken anas också vanilj tillsammans med smultron och honung. Inte alls dum den här.

Took a while to track the name of this beer down, but worth it. Pleasantly surprised at the overall drinkability of this Russian beer. A nice golden/coppr color with adeqaute head, and just enough sharp bitterness to make you take notice. Mild but pleasant smell also...one of the best Russian beers I’ve had.

larsga (6177) - 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.)

Quack-Duck (7794) - 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.

Tart and delicious, perfect to wash down the food. Will definitely work as well at the pub as at the grill.

McTapps (3919) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, 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.
