500 ml bottle. Pale golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is fairly rich and malty. Clean pale malt, very fresh with a touch of straw character and a soft floral aroma. Pretty solid pale lager.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Draught at Kult Bar in Moscow, pale straw with a white foamy head and very carbonated. Aroma was grassy and metallic. A harsh metaalic dryness to the palate, with only grassy hops as flavour. Terrible.

Tap at the Idiot in St. Petersburg. Poured a very pale golden with a fizzy white head. Faint corn aroma. Flavor of light corn and grass, with some wonderful skunkiness in the finish. Not very pleasant.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden lager with a thick collapsing white head. Light hoppy malt aroma. In mouth, crisp malt, with some chalky notes, and some light german crisp hops. A bit too light bodied, but a decent east european lager.

One pint bottle that Patty gave me from BOTW. I sampled this with JB while he was trying to rid my computer of a virus that the kids gotten. The hops really stayed on the palate from this one cause the Yuengling I had after this tasted just like this for the 1st couple of swigs.

Simple light pilsener styled beer. The taste of the hops is light, but lingers. Not bad.

Decent light beer. Nice head, slightly fizzy, bitter at times. Go for a Sibirskaya Korona instead.
