Label said "Big Mug Amber". 51 ounce plastic bottle for $2.49 (but Ive seen it on sale for $1.99). Pours a slightly dark amber. Head is rich, thick, and slightly off white. But it dies fairly quickly. Smells sweet like a caramel sticky bun. Flavor is of caramel. Not as much malt as I expected and little hops. Its also low on the alcohol content. Incredibly smooth!!The flavor has a quick finish with very little aftertaste. It has the mouth feel of a light beer.But overall this is very easy drinking. Id put this up against any of the macro light beers on the market.

Sampled as big Mug Amber in a 1.5l bottle. The body was rich caramel brown with a thin patchy white head. The nose was sweet caramel with some nutty almonds. The taste has some rich peanuts and caramel. There is also a brown sugar sweetness. This is like a vienna to me.

supremely drinkable, rather smooth palate, low carbonation, quickly-dissipating head, really cheap ($2.69 for an 85 ounce [2.5 L] bottle). Basically its caramel soda to share w/friends (Brighton Beach)

$3.50 for 2.5 liters in Chicago. Call me crazy but I like these sweetish-sour low-carbonation Russian beers as a cheep summer drink. Almost ciderish in quality.

suurjuust (3157) - ESTONIA - JUL 12, 2012
Can, as "Big Mug Amber Beer". Pale yellow, white head. Nose is metallic malts, taste is slightly sweet, more metallic malts, weird honey-apple notes. Not offensive, but pretty nondescript.

thirstyrabbit (1784) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 19, 2012
0,5l can as "Big Mug Amber", redirecting here. Typical light golden lager body. The big bottle version must be something different, because this is certainly nothing close to "dark" as other reviewers have described it. Light grainy and citric aroma. Taste is clean and neutral. Low on hops. Doesnt have much taste and is therefore pretty drinkable.

Quack-Duck (9356) - Down South, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2012
1.5l plastic bottle from a local Russian supermarket. Clear golden yellow, very stable and large white head. Fruity nose. Light-bodied, malty base with hints of apples, shy hops with a touch of cardboard and a touch of old fruit. Nevertheless quite drinkable.

vinivini (1586) - BELARUS - APR 25, 2014
1.5L PET bottle. Deep golden colour, Fluffy head of low duration. The aroma is poor: some hints of grain & hay. light body. The taste is mostly sweet along with sour notes. Abrupt finish. Almost no aftertaste. No need nor wish to try it again.

CanIHave4Beers (4141) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 14, 2011
From a big plastic bottle marked "Big Mug Amber" Pours a bright orange color, which reminds me that its not only here in the US that the word "Amber" gets thrown around with reckless abandon. The head on the beer is very loose and doesnt stick around very long. The aroma is malty sweet and has some alcohol, but its not really offensive, just boring and a little weird. The flavor is similar to the aroma, malty sweet with just a light zing of hops, some grainy flavors along with some cornflake corny sweetness that seems to be the focus of this beer. Its really actually very easy to drink and I can see where the appeal would exist for a bright colored sweet smooth pale lager. Its not really for me though.
