Bottled. A yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of straw, and so is the flavor. Nothing special. omhper (25941) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2002
Pale yellow. Neutral aroma. Clean, sweet, light bodied, undetectable bitterness. Typical industrial swill. Oakes (19332) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2002
Muddy brown/tan; husky aroma, slight rusting tin, stewed tomato, earthy hop; palate shows toffee, slight oxidized hop, sticky Munich malts. Finishes sweet, with a slight sugar note and some house funk. Brewed in the classic Soviet Zhigulevskoye style.bierkoning (13806) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2003

Clear gold; fresh hop aroma, with slight cat's piss (oh joy!). Herbal, almost pungent (though restrained) hops and bready malt blend well. Slightly bitter finish, light overall.
Brewed for Mercur, Lippstadt. Frothy head. Grainy cabbagearoma. Nasty skunky bitterness. Metallic. Oak leaves. Really horrible flavor, and the aroma isn't much better. Mariusz (12300) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - OCT 17, 2012
As Schigulewskoje Svetloje Pivo (Monolith). Plastic bottle. Light gold. Musty sweet aroma with a little florals. Bready beer with a crisp hoppy finish.

Bottle. Sour, slightly skunky aroma. Orange yellow color with small quickly collapsing head. Sour malt flavor- moderate carbonation, little hops. Not offensive but nothing special. faroeviking (11329) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 13, 2007
Goldenish. Short bubbly white head. Aroma of some malt and grains. Weak flavour of malt, bit sweet with a slight hoppiness. Thin brew. Quack-Duck (9540) - Down South, GERMANY - NOV 7, 2011
2l plastic bottle. Golden yellow, mid-sized head. Malty aroma with a bitter touch. Malty, grainy, bitter finish. Hints of honey and vanilla. PorterPounder (8355) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2004
My bottle was green and Zhiguly was writen in English, brewed by Guberija - 4.3 ABV - must be the same. Very pale, light yellow appearance. Soapy, white head. Mown grass leading to a Saaz induced hoppy, almost skunky aroma. Flavor has a bit of an underlying malty biscutyness that is slighlty sweet. Little more zest than your normal Soviet-bloc lagers. Mouthfeel is rather bland and lifeless, probably due to long shelf like - not quite metallic. Still, better than expected. Sigmund (8006) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 8, 2002
That's right boys - when in Lithuania, have some 'alus'. This is the standard brew. Feels right when you get it in the dark brown cafés of the old town of Vilnius or Kaunas - hardly elsewhere.
