OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2012
0.5 L bottle as ЗОЛОТАЯ БОЧКА Klassicheskoe. Pours a brilliant clear pale golden, topped by a finger of fully diminishing white head. Sweet-scented bread and wort to the nose. Taste is fairly clean malty. On the sweet side with bready and grainy malt flavor. Some bittering hops underneath. Light to medium full. Slick texture. Sweetish malt ending. Just about a decent euroloager.

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

Aurelius (4603) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2004
A sorta pickle-y smell. I liked the gold label. Brothy, lightly sweet, underhopped. A bit watery. An herbal/vegetable broth finish.

tomciccateri (1028) - 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.

GTAEgeek (1401) - 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.
