2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This was brought to me by friends who visited Vladivostok. Beer information and Brewery information was all in Cyrilic, so I had to use Google Translate to provide it for the site.
The beer came out of a 500 cl gold can, and poured a pale gold, with decent, midsized white head. It smelled cheap, nothing but yeast and perhaps adjuncts. Flavour was not very "crisp" or "clean". One picked up the taste of cheap ingredients, mainly. This, I assume is a Russian discount beer.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle - 500ml. Boring golden body with a thin, vanishing white foamy head. Weak malty/hoppy taste with herbal notes. Taste is rather watery and finish is very short. Useless.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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.
