[2015-07-14, Rabocheostrovsk] Kullankeltainen, ei vaahtoa juurikaan kaadettaessa, maultaan miedon makea, vähän hiilihappoja.

YantarCoast (818) - Moscow, RUSSIA - MAR 28, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours light amber with an off-white head. Aroma is faint - seems like a standard pale lager with some caramel. Taste is sweet. Meh. A shitty example of the style.

oh6gdx (24577) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2014
Bottled. Deep golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is cardboard, wet paper, some dry sour wood as well. Quite harsh. Flavour is cardboard, some malts and rather papery. Not very pleasant.

Dzhigga (348) - Kirov, RUSSIA - FEB 15, 2014
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.

KoNrRiI (1093) - Århus, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2013
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.

Zarkam (538) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2013
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.
