2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Light amber color with very fast disappearing head. Aroma is really hard to distinguish, but some notes of caramel detected. Light sweet in taste with some flowers. Hops is very-very far away. Nothing interesting at all.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
0.5 bottle. Amber color not that bright even; small. white head, it’s rather thin but stays for a short while indeed it even leaves a bit of a lacing. Aroma bases on the well-worn pale lager scent but puts some pleasant dough and malts into the equation. Mostly tastes of corn and pale malts, rather on the sweet side. Light body, thin texture and lively carbonation. Finish is short and grainy, nothing special. Overall it is good in a regard that it does not offend, seems to be a pretty common characteristic of Russian lagers; however, it does not present any inherent quality by itself.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml bottle from supermarket in Vyborg, deep clear gold colour, minimal white head. Aroma of bread and cereal with notes of grass and nuts, taste is a bit on the sweet side, light body, medium carbonation, abrupt finish. Very generic and quite boring, well atleast it was on discount and just 4,4 abv so might work in hot weather if trying to avoid being very drunk.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - 4,4%. Pale golden body, medium head. Weak malty aroma with light pilsner hops. Watery but mostly clean taste. No strange gluey stuff that is common in some Russian macros. But yeah, it’s quite watery. Finish gets slightly papery but only when you let it warm up.
