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.

Clear yellow with small white foam ring. Aroma is like mass produced lager, so is taste. Just another beer. (Moscow 201310)

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.

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

Directly from can, 5.2% ABV. Nothing great to be written about this beer. Some light grainy astringency appears, but otherwise empty.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2014 Золотая Бочка Классич& - Classic Golden Barrel.
50cl aluminium can from a supermarket in Kremenchuk, Ukraine.
Says that Efes Ukraina, Donetsk, SAB Miller stands behind it.
Pasteurized bright beer. 12’ and abv 5%.
Pours a head taller than average, bumpy foam, leaves fields on its way down.
Body is bright golden, rare and tiny bubbles.
Scents of bread, grassy hops.
Tastes malts and hops, the carbonation, something sweet.
Feel is alright, but sweetness and carbonation disturbs.
Aftertaste; bread, rye bread, syrup, malt.
Overall it’s coming well at the end. Pale lager with some premium elements. 34437=2.1
- Re-Tasted 10SEP-2014; fruitiness in aroma, buttery notes in taste, feels fruity on palate. B@supermarket in Baltics. Seems to have been improved a bit. New 4-4-4-3-8=2.3

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a golden colour with a fast disappearing head. Aroma is malt, apple and meh. Taste is as meh as a pale lager gets. Overall, just meh.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 mL bottle bought in Moscow and consumed in Huntsville, AL. Pours a clear, pale yellow with a thin white head. The nose is mostly wheat and carbonation, with some notes of yeast and pine hops. The flavor is weak, but well balanced sweetness and bitterness. The body is light, and the alcohol is noticable. Overall, a mediocre beer, but not offensively bad.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.
