Bottle. Golden colour just like the name says. Good head, nice lacing. Malty aroma. Lots of carbonation. The taste is more on the sweet side, not so much bitterness. The taste is full, not weak and watery.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, courtesy of enjoyit. It’s a clear, golden beer, a small off-white head sits on top. Very weak on the nose, mostly fruity, with a grassy touch and some malts. Flavorwise it’s much the same, slightly metallic towards the end. Pleasant bitterness too, at least considering it’s a pale lager. Medium body. A pleasant one, not what I normally expect from a Russian pale lager. 110129
