Gyumri Classic (Zhigvolyevyan)
Bottle. Light grainy note, apart of that it’s just water. But that also means, there is no skunk, corn or metal. Lands in the ’could have been worse’ category.

Blondwitha whiete head. Nose is metallic and a bit hoppy. Body, carbon and texture are light. Taste is rather bitter. Palate does not uncover any surprise. Anyway bitterness is quite satisfactory. B@Armenia

Gyumri Classic (Zhigvolyevyan)
(Gyumri Classic (Zhigvolyevyan)) Bottle 500 ml from a trade with DSG, thanks. New country! Served into an english pint glass, ABV 4% Deep golden yellow and a tad hazy on the body, small and thin white head on top, with low retention, leaving minimal lacing on the glass. Lots of grains on the aroma, a bit lactic too, old hops. Taste is grainy, some faint lemon zest, wet barley. Good bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium body, low carbonation. Overall not bad at all.
