nick76 (4180) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Same stuff going on here as with the classic. The aroma is slightly less floral but with the same cheap mixed grains. The appearance is pale gold and the flavor is like the aroma and metallic. The palate is thin. This is still not helping me get over my dislike of Russian beers.

Bottled. Pale golden,average head. Neutral nose with some vague fruitiness. Medium sweet with rounded mouthfeel and light body. Lightly mushy mouthfeel, low hop rate and bitterness. Lacks character, buthas some minor refreshing qualities.

ha1ag (701) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2007
BOTLLED ! Russian beers have to be drunk from bottles - no metallic taste of canned beers then ! nice lager, the best I took in Russia (of the many) hoppy with some fruity flavour, solid foam, nice bitter scent.

oh6gdx (20239) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 15, 2006
Canned. Golden colour, mediumsized foamy white head. Weak, almost inexistable, hayish nose. Flavour is sweet hopyness with metallic hints. Also some perfumed caramel or similar in finish. Unbalanced and rather unclean. .

TBone (12458) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 15, 2006
Can 500ml (brewed 01/2006)
Pale yellow, decent white head. Rubbery, cardboard malty nose, also a bit metallic. Medium-bodied, sweet malty. More stable than you could expect from 4% beer, but also very uninspiring.

Ilushevic (1) - Moscow, RUSSIA - APR 14, 2006 does not count

Bov (9275) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 10, 2004

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 18, 2004
Light golden colour. Aroma of straw and grass. Palate is dried grass and some background malts. Spritzy but crisp, quick finish.
