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 (1164) - 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.

Pretty much a standard russian lager. Slight bite, fizzy head, yellow in color. Light compared to others I have had.

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.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 7, 2006
Bottle at the Brickskeller, DC. Middle of the road lager. On the light side, but had a faint hops flavor and something resembling taste. only a little cheap beer flavor

GIJOE (974) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Pours a pale amber color with a frothy white head that dissipates quickly. Nose is lightly malty with a hunt of corn. Taste is somewhat sweet and uninteresting. Thin body, mild carbonation. Sort of astringent finish. Tolerable beer.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2005
Bottled. Golden colour, small head. Corny, adjuncty aroma. Grainy, watery taste, almost no hops. Slightly tart. Not as offensive as some russian lagers, due to its wateriness.

Can in Vladivostok. Pours golden yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is toasted pale malts, some caramel and light citrus. Flavor is mild with more toasted pale malts and light citrus hops. And another stellar pale lager down, 4,999,999,987 to go...
