Dzhigga (349) - 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.

Pours coppery, thick white head. Nose is malts and paper, taste is malt and grains, sweetness, hints at caramel, almost no hops. Aftertaste is lemony and grainy. Thin body, smooth carbonation. Decent pale lager.

thirstyrabbit (1715) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 13, 2013
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.

500ml bottle @Beer Session 26.Oct.2011. Dark golden body. Sweet smell of prunes, honey and hint of almonds and nuts. Paper dry. Taste of vanilla, nuts, almonds, tobacco and caramel. Surprisingly full bodied. Nice design and screw top. Shared with Stefan&Rune

KoNrRiI (1182) - 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.

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

Beershine (5219) - 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.
