1,5 l bottle at the legendary Anker Hostel kvass rating session 2014. Murky deep orange body practically without any head. Aroma is rye bread, malt syrup and some lemon. Flavor is sticky sweet malt syrup, rye bread, lemon and no bitterness. A bit thin body and sweet aftertaste. I really have my doubt if Kvass is the thing for me, way too sweet.

Dark yellow with small yellow head, sweet and sour, malty and carbonated, as kvass should be,.

Bottled (as Ilguciema Pszeniczny Kvass). Cloudy pale amber, mid sized head. Bready honey aroma. Sweet with light body and rounded, sticky mouthfeel. Bready with syrup and bread. No bitterness, Quite nice, albeit sweet.

Small offwhite head. Hazy opaque brown body. Earthy rye bread aroma with yeasty notes. Sweet, and faintly acidic, earthy raisiny rye bread taste. Full-bodied. Mild, slightly flat mouthfeel. Sweet, faintly acidic, earthy mealy rye bread aftertaste with spicy syrupy notes. It does lack some complexity, and it is a bit on the sweet side, but I kind of like it. (1.5l PET bottle from yngwie. Thanks!)

Bottle 1500ml @ Hostel room - Anker Hostel, Oslo
Pours slightly hazy brown with a small off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, rye bread, brown sugar and syrup. Taste is light to medium sweet with a sweet rye bread and hint of citrus finish. Body is light, texture is thin, carbonation is flat

yngwie (17284) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle, 1.5ltr, at Anker Hostel kvass rating session 2014. It’s a hazy golden to brown drink with just a thin ring og light beige bubbles. The aroma is quite sweetish, with some dark rye bread, lemon, dried fruits and hay. It’s quite flat and thin on the palate, with rye bread, wort, sugar and too much lemon.sweet finish with lemon and sried fruits. Well, way too sweet this one, definitely not my kind of beer. 140503

PET bottle from a Russian grocery store in Oslo. Brass color, short lived fizz. Malt, sugar, a nice edge of sour an bitter, a pinch of salt. Brewed with wheat and barley malt and baker’s yeast. Interesting.

Vells (1980) - Rīga, LATVIA - MAY 3, 2013
Cloudy deep brown with thin off white head. Aroma.. one of the most intense bread kvass that I ever had. (if dont count old days). weird but theres some notes of yeast, bit spicy, notes of honey Sweeeet. .all the way. Maybe bit too sweet so I stopped to drink it on casual basis.

1.5L bottle (Rimi, Riga) - shared with old Marduk - thanks!
Super bready sweet aroma. A little bit of citrus. Smooth palate, nice carbonation. Love this. Cloudy reddy brown. Finish is sweet, but so bready. One of the best bottled kvasses I’ve ever had.
