200cl PET from Stockman, Tallinn. Pours clear dark brown with a modest head (but more lasting than most kvas I’ve seen). Sweet and bready with lots of dried fruits and a light acidity. Rather easy to drink and fairly enjoyable. phfyysik (1274) - Tartu, ESTONIA - APR 15, 2017
Pours brown with medium brown head. Aroma is caramel, dark bread, bakers yeast, honey, sweetness, grain. Taste is grainy, sourish, some sweetness, light bread, roast, raisin, some lemon. Nice and not too sweet, easy to drink. crossovert (12934) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2017
500ml soda-style plastic bottle. Pours a dark amber, no head. It is a better than average kvass, stilla bit vinegary but not too sweet like some. rayaron (1839) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - DEC 31, 2015
Plastic bottle sample. Thanks troubles. Hazy brownish-amber with no head. Aroma of prune, port wine and dried fruits. Sweet flavor of cola with notes of prune and port wine. Light-bodied. Not so fresh but still ok. DSG (14784) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 17, 2015

Bottle from vending machine Helsinki station in St Peterburg. Consumed at breakfast time... It pours deep brown with a decent fizzy beige head. The nose is rather sweet and pungent..... loads of cheap brown bread, malt extract, malt loaf, cake, earth and marmite (although that is a disservice to marmite). The taste is a bit better thankfully....sweet, tangy dark malt, caramel, malt extract, cola, dried fruits, fruit cake, earth and cheap candy. Light body, moderate carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. I really disliked the aroma. Fairly basic Kvass... Senka (1082) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 13, 2015
Last sample May, 2014. A decent KVASS. Suits very good to make traditional dish Okroshka. Drinkable as is. Better than water or fizzy drinks. Not beer in general. Refreshing and energizing. Loads of sugars. FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 30, 2014
2L PET bottle (Jaamaturg, Tallinn)travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Pleasant sweet malt extracty aroma, a little bit sodawatery. Pours dark, briefly fizzes. Taste as per the aroma, but does have some nice raisins. Palate sweetish, but refreshingly carbonated, a little watery. Nothing jumps out and says "yum", I’m missing the citrussy buttery breadiness, but it’s a fine re-hydrater on a hot day.
Thanks to Mora2000. The smell is very caramel, butterscotch like, sweet, and candy. The look is amber in color. The taste is really sweet, and candy like. Better than expected.
