1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Boks 500ml anskaffet av djoeye og delt med ham og Rune på pauserommet 27 Aug 14. Lys gyldenbrun. OK skum. Svak metallaroma. Smaken er karamell & malt. Antydning til frukt i smaken - men tynn.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A sorta pickle-y smell. I liked the gold label. Brothy, lightly sweet, underhopped. A bit watery. An herbal/vegetable broth finish.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
The aroma is floral with mixed grain malt. The appearance is golden with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma with a bitter and metallic finish. The palate is thin. This beer does nothing to help my dislike of eastern European beers.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale yellow of color with a white head. An aroma of DMS, corn and almost no hops. A flat flavor of malt and no hops.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - 500ml. Boring golden body with a quick-fading white foamy head. Weak malty/hoppy aroma. Taste is thin and ends with a short bitter finish. At least, the BOB (bottle-opener bottle) works.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
500ml bottle. Clear golden color. Medium size, white head, stays. Papery, wort, sour notes in aroma. Malty, yeasty, cereals, sweetish, dirty notes in taste. Papery, corny aftertaste. Nasty.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. My first impression of Russian lagers was that they were too sweet, but maybe that was just the Baltika. This is suitably dry, the color is a nice golden hue with a thin head. Maltiness plays well with a little bitter. A nice standard beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells bad. A smidge better than the Botchkarev, perhaps. Thin and watery. Undistinguished from an american standard.

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.
