Pale yellow color (unappetizing). The aroma is of hops, but it is insufficient. The taste is tart and dry, harsh and with no appreciable mouthfeel. Good head formation, but the irregular bubbles formed an no appreciable lace, and were not retained.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2004
Very popular with the young Russian guys in my area. Kids today! Some hop promise, but tastes and finishes far too sweet. An entry-level brew, definitely not worth the import pricing.

eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2004
revoltingly sweet, syruppy and sickly. chunderous quantities of DMS and diacetyl, with sweetcorn and overripe pawpaw all over the place. smooth malty body though, not as thin as some other crap lagers.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2004
Sample- 500 Ml bottle. Pours a thick head that is gone in seconds. Sparkling golden body with some malty aromas. Taste is a tad sweet and malty, and very similar to other beers of this type. Drinkable, but nothing I would get if I had a choice.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2004
Bottled. Thin golden colour, not much head to speak off. Malty, grain, cheep cereal aroma. Nasty larger. Available from the Russian Bar/Restaurant on Clarkenwell Rd.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2004
Bottle. Some malt and hops aroma with typical 'lager' nose. Tinny bitterness and fleeting glimpses of sweetness. Average lager.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2004
Standard lager appearance with a moderately hoppy aroma. Fairly boring taste, just slightly bitter. Cleaner and a bit more satisfying than other Russian beers I've had but that isn't saying much.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2004
Light crisp slighty skunked grassy aroma. Light pissy hue with a fast disappating foamy head. Watery taste with a malty edge and a short skunky finish. Standard Swil.

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2004
The head, like champagne mousse, rises up then quickly dies down to nothing. Low carbonation thereafter, leaving just a petillant prickle on the tongue. Very pale gold colour. Some fusty malt in the aroma, but quite faint. I also thought I detected corn adjunct notes, but that isn't listed in the ingredients. Sweetish initial impression on the palate, with some biscuity malt notes and an acidic edge appearing later. Not very hop accented. The finish is fresh, clean and vvery dry, but marred by a metallic tang that hangs around after all else has departed. Drinkable, but not very distinguished. 500ml bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk
