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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
