Enjoyit (3455) - Vadum, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2008
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.

Eructoblaster (2994) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2008
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.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2002
Smells bad. A smidge better than the Botchkarev, perhaps. Thin and watery. Undistinguished from an american standard.

DrnkMcDermott (2792) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2004
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.

garthicus (2662) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 15, 2011
Thanks to my colleague Anastasia who bright this back from Russia for me. Appearance: Light orange, small off white head. Aroma: Rubber, hay, grass, wet cardboard, dust. Flavour: Tangy plastic, wet cardboard, soda like, weak body, instant bitter finish.

Marduk (2637) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 19, 2014
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.

Ron (2499) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 27, 2005
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.

pilsnerrogge (2488) - Finspång, SWEDEN - SEP 16, 2007
Draught @ Hotel Azimut, St. Petersburg
Yellow colour. Creamy head. Peculiar vanilla ice cream aroma. Thin and over carbonated with a dry, grassy bitterness

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
sloth (2468) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2004
Large offwhite/grey head, mostly lasting with splotchy lacing.. Good looking clear amber lager. Somewhat soapy, malty nose. Medium body. Malty, corny flavors with a hint of wet cardbord, yum. Astringent, dry finish.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 13, 2007
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.
