Bottle @ home, thanks to a colleague. Clear golden color, decent sized white head that diminishes rapidly. Smell malts, some sweetness and believe it or not peanuts! Taste isn’t much better: malts, sweet, and again peanut-flavors. That does not belong in a beer. Fizzy carbonation, thin texture, alcohol clearly present, low body. bhensonb (15190) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 4, 2007
Pretty much of a honey sweet corn aroma. Sturdy white head that left slight lacing. Bright gold color. Medium bodied, fizzy, almost creamy carbonation. It’s corny sweet, maybe a touch of honey. Instant heat. The hops must have gotten lost. There’s a light astringency, but the finish is not really dry. After awhile I can imagine there might have been some hop bitter. gunnfryd (14872) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2009
Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma is fruit, malt, grass. Flavour is fruit, malt, grass, alcohol, apple. Medium to thin body. Boring beer. DSG (14784) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 25, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2011 Re-rate 5/12/11: Bottle sample at a Baltika tasting. Thanks (or no thanks?) Keren. Pale clear golden. Aroma of alcohol and cereals. Flavor of sugar and alcohol. Light-bodied. Yuck. 2/2/2/2/3=1.1

Can. Yellow color with a medium, quickly-diminishing, white head. Grainy, malty aroma, with some alcohol. Flavor is cloying sweetness with lots of alcohol all the way from the beginning to the finish. Thin-bodied. I’m still very close to the 0.5l line of my glass, but a few sips of this stuff were already a bit too much. This is just awful. 3/2/2/1/4=1.2
50 cl. bottle. Clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of malt, hops, fruit, alcohol and bitterness.

Bottle. Light amber hue with a medium white head that diminished quickly. Small aroma. Light to medium body. Small flavor with sweet malt with a small alcohol bite at the finish. Below average beer and malt liquor. HenrikSoegaard (14166) - Randers, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2005
Week head, bitter flavour, and a surprice citrus-finish. I was positively surpriced of this beer. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 24, 2003
How funny -- I go all this time without rating a malt liquor, and the first one I happen to try isn't one of the Americans, but a Russian one. Crystal clear straw body with large white foam. Aroma is grainy, sweet, alcohol, light herbal. Taste is medium sweet, grainy, finishing alcohol and light herbal. Undercarbonated mouthfeel, fairly light body for 8%.

Bottle from Market Street Wine Shop Downtown Charlottesville. Very light and pale orangish yellow with a huge head, but little lacing or retention. Bitter, citrus and grassy aroma. This beer is freaking sweet... high fructose corn syrup kinda sweet. I guess the maltose syrup listed in the ingredients on the bottle is responsible for that. Cloying and overwhelming. Bleh.

Bottle at home in Mytishchi. Pours clear amber, nose is sweet toffee, caramel, taste is similar. Was probably actually not very good but couldn’t complain for 20p a bottle!
