COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zolotaya Bochka Seasoned is a beer which brewing requires almost twice the amount of time as usual, due to long seasoning in specific conditions, in which it gains full-bodied flavour and a natural high strength. 14.9°

Deep amber color, light thin head. Some sweet maltiness and a touch of alcohol in the palate.

A friend of mine brought this beer back to me from their recent trip to Russia. The aroma was rather insipid, slightly weezy and metallic. A nice light beige head crowned a light amber, slighly brown colored beer with superb clarity. Bochka Seasoned was soft on the tongue with barely creamy mouthfeel. The flavour was well balanced with the hops overwhelming the malt just a bit providing a sharp, dry swallow. There was something going on in the aftertaste (alcohol?); but, it wasn't that noticeable. The overall affect was rather full.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2003
Nothing special really. Amber colour. Quite malty and sweet, but not very full bodied.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2003
Bottled. Deep full amber colour with beige soft fine head. Sweet malt and grain aromas with bread like qualities (another one of those delectable beers that makes you hungry). The taste was just as more’ish. What I liked most was it wasn’t overly sweet like some Belgian’s but balanced more in keeping with Vienna or Bohemian style. Many thanks to SilkTork et al for his help in identifying this one.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2003
Pretty violent. Nice appearance. A strenghful lager and a fullbodied brew. An averga beer.

omhper (20916) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2003
Bottled. Nut brown. Woody whiskey nose. Sweet, bold and malty. Clean woody finish. Much more elegant than the everyday Russian lager.

robertjm (791) - Albany, California, USA - MAR 3, 2003
Pretty amber color. Same malty-ish flavor that seems to come out in most Eastern European lagers. Not very exciting, but there is an aftertaste present. Head that quickly dies. Palate is a little harsh. While I'd drink it again, its not something that I would run out of my way just to get.

rauchbier (3655) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2003
Bottled. Deep bronze with a good rocky cream coloured head. Though it was going to be a dunkle style but more of a spicy Vienna or märzen. Lemony citric aromas along with malt and a suggestion of coconut that follows through into the mouth with a spicy maltiness. Sweet chewy malty and alcoholic finish.

Great long lasting dense head from this brown beer. The flavour and aroma is prodominently mildly coffee, and a lot harsher than a dunkel. A great russian beer.
