Many thanks to Philippe (Bov) for sending me the original pet bottle and generous sample. Country #160. Poured hazy gold/amber with minimal bubbly head. Aroma of maize, malt, apples, slightly herbal and light spice. Medium sweetness, light bitterness. Light body, oily and watery texture, soft carbonation. Finish of malty biscuit. Drinkable despite itís travels.

Many thanks to omhper for a taster of this one, delivered at my hotel in a small flip-top bottle. Pale golden body, next to clear. A few bubbles at the surface. Grassy smell with hints of cat piss. Mild dry taste of pale malts, leaf and distant oily hops. Drying end. Quite possible to drink (Hotel room, Stockholm 26.11.2016).

Bottled, huge thanks to Bov! Clear pale golden, small head. Aroma of buttery cellar and green apples. Sweetish with light body. Ripe with butterscotch and apples, some grain. Almost no bitterness. Old school soviet style.

PET bottle, thanks to friends for sharing. Golden color. Aroma and taste: significant flaws, malt, a little fruits, almost without hops, not my favorite.

Iím guessing that this is the beer, I had, but it may have been one of their other beers. Pours gold with a white head. Smells of apples, some sweet malt, some tea. Tastes of tea, some weird sugary hints, lysol. Strange beer.
