2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml bottle from IKEA in st. Petersburg, dark brown colour, snall fizzy beige mostly vanishing head, hardly any lacing. Moderately malty aroma of toast, chocolate and caramel with light floral hops. Taste is initially mildly sweet turning into a lightly bittersweet finish with a slightly roasty and metallic feel. Light to medium body, slick mouthfeel, lively carbonation. A rather uninteresting dark lager, but at least it is distinguishable as a dark one and the malt profile isn’t too bad.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark brown colour with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel and prunes. The taste is much dryer than you would expect from the sweet aroma, and the flavour is predominantly of roasted malts with not much hop flavour. A little thin and watery with a very short finish. Nothing offensive in this beer, but rather thin and unmemorable.
