Hey Folks, this is Vincent from India.. Good to be here.

Stumbled upon this site when trying to find info on some recently consumed Russian Beer. Unfortunately most of the Beer cans in Russia have all their labeling & titling in Russian and so couldnít quite figure out the names to the beers...Maybe some of the veterans here could help me out...

Greetings Vincent, Iím sorry I ended up on your thread because of some fairly funny posts weíve had in the past about India (#bananabeer). If you use some basic transliteration you should be able to find the russian beers you are looking for in the database. If not, contact Marko who is very well informed about these beers.

Cheers!

Julien

Canít wait to see how many other people will come here looking for Sandiram

Upload pictures of the beer to imgur or something so we can take a look.

Take photos of the can and make sure that the text in Cyrillic is legible. Donít forget to take pics of the bar code number as well.

Easier to locate that the beer is the correct one by comparing barcodes.

1. Zolotaya Bochka
2. Tri medvedya svetloe
3. Klinskoe Svetloe
4. Bochkarev, probably Svetloe

As far as I can tell at least. Hope it helps.

First one is a bit fuzzy, but for the first two words I find:
zolotaya bochka

that gives you five different possibilities of the ones on ratebeer

Guessing it is this one?

Not sure I agree on the first one

Rest seems to be correct though
