Widely available in Russia, presumed brewed at all or most of SABMiller’s breweries there, but some evidence exists that this originated at the Kaluga brewery.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - DEC 6, 2011
Состав: вода питьевая, солод пивоваренный ячменный, патока крахмельная (опечатка получилась знаковой – действительно, «крах хмеля»), хмель. Стильная этикетка, симпатичное на вид красноватое сверхгазированное пиво с легким солодовым ароматом. Вкус нейтральный, слегка отдает карамелькой. Скорее да, чем нет.

FatPhil (9346) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 2, 2011
500ml can (Maxima, Kaunas)
5 Sweet malty aroma, rather feeble, but just a hint of ginger too.
3- light orange, tiny head after a fizzy pour.
5- Very simple grainy body, a little white-bready, sweetish, and perhaps a touch corny. Warmer, some estery retronasals come over.
2 Watery, but with pleasant carbonation. Very little to the finish, almost no hopping , just a tiny tingle, and the malts are thin with no staying power.
9 Fairly drinkable pale lager, more malts than many, and no obvious flaws.

Rune (8044) - Tromsш, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2011
500ml bottle, thanks to Elisabeth for sharing. Clear golden, towards amber, coloured body. Fading white head. Aroma of sweet, pale malts. Papery dry taste profile with hints of pale malts and lemon. Dry in the mouth. Soft carbonated. Possible to drink (at a session in Tromsш, 26.10.2011).

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2011
Bottle. Golden with thick lasting head and some lace. Grainy aroma has some, but slight, phenols. Drinkable with nice soft carbonation. On the sweet side but fairly clean and definitely inoffensive.
