Medium white head. Clear deep yellow body. Mealy malty grassy aroma with fruity notes. Dry-sweet malty papery taste with grassy fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle from hypermarket near Vyborg, 5.2% abv. A hint of basement aromas upon opening the bottle. Clear golden colour, small white head. Aroma of bread, hay, cereal and some hints of floral hops and resin, very balanced taste and mellow bitter finish, medium body. Fairly European-style basic lager, not that common in Russia as they tend to be sweeter. Nothing particularly wrong, probably useful if intending to be somewhat drunk the entire day in Summertime.

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.

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.
