Deep copper orange, healthy tight head. Baked bread aroma, a bit fruity - raisins. Slight hint of alcohol (drunk at room temperature, so that’s less surprising). Fairly soft palate. Grainy and buttery, a little bit woody. Sweet spiciness too, almost peppery. Long woody finish. Quite sophisticated beer, covers the alcohol pretty well. Worth hunting out, very good nutty lager.

GTAEgeek (1223) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Bottle in Moscow, Russia. Pours a deep, clear amber color with a medium white head. It leaves a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is very malty, with some notes of corn, pine hops, and some slight, tart fruits. The flavor is mostly sweet with an unpleasant sour and bitter finish. The body is somewhat heavy, and the alcohol warmth is undeniable. Overall, a decent beer.

rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - DEC 15, 2005
Bottled. Enjoyed from a used tea cup in Novosibirsk, Russia. Clear, deep amber color, with small off-white head with short retension. Malty sweet aroma, with a hint of alcohol. Flavor is fruity (apple, banana?), caramelly sweet malts, with a hoppy alcoholic tang in the fairly long finish. Not terribly exciting, but enjoyable enough, and the alcohol makes the flavour appreciatively rich. The carbonation is certainly a bit heavy though, but the same goes for most russian beers in my opinion.

Ernest (6220) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2004
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is moderately malty (grain, bread, caramel), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a light note of solvent. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A step up from the Klassic (better aroma for sure), but still industrial, grainy, and fizzy.
