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

vipinvelp (2136) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2013
Clear yellow with small white foam ring. Aroma is like mass produced lager, so is taste. Just another beer. (Moscow 201310) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

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.

Sevenlee (1298) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2013
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.

GTAEgeek (1202) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 29, 2010
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.

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JUN 26, 2006
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.

NJBeerman013 (1045) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - FEB 2, 2005
Pretty much a standard russian lager. Slight bite, fizzy head, yellow in color. Light compared to others I have had.

tomciccateri (1002) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 26, 2007
From a .5 litre brown bottle, pours a clear deep gold color with a slight head. Well-carbonated with a medium body, slightly sweet malty flavor, slight perfumy character with a late dry finish. Fair.

It seems to be Zolotaya Bochka Klassicheskoye. This brewery also brews a malt liquor (the worst of all) and a light beer ("Probably the best beer in Kaluga" :) The less alcohol the better beer. This "Classic" is very middle-of-the-road.
