Bottle. Quite deep golden body for a pale lager. Pours, however, with a small head. Aroma has something sharp in it. Mouthfeel is fuller than most Russian macro lagers have but taste reveals some more chemical sharpness. Too industrial. skelo (35) - Kaunas, LITHUANIA - APR 15, 2012
Fairly good flavor and nice color. Taste the rich, uncluttered. Bearing in mind that this is a classic pale lager beer, one should not expect some kind of exclusivity. Will not experience great pleasure in drinking, but the proper refreshment on a hot day. TBone (17442) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 8, 2012

Golden-amber color, small white head. Harsh, grainy, nasty aroma. Light-bodied. Sweet and harsh flavor: caramel and fusels. Typical low quality Russian industrial lager.

Slightly messed up aroma, chemical and cleaning fluid. Taste initially is even worse! However, it becomes bready and grainy, and almost quite nice. There’s even a hint of ginger. However, the hump of nastiness is too much to get past in order for me to be positive about this. I don’t know if this will make me blind.

Smells absolutely rank. Doesn’t taste much better. Verging on horror. DP.
Bottle. Malty aroma. Clear golden body. little white head. Taste was grainy, some sweet,full, quite bitter tones. Drinkable.

Flaske 0,5l - påspandert - og delt på Tårnrommet 22 Jun 11. Gylden. Lavt luftig skum. Søt frukt/maltaroma. Litt karamell - som også dominerer smaken. Uvariert & kjedelig. Et pluss for etiketten! Enjoyit (3809) - Vadum, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2011
Clear golden of color with a white head. An aroma of hay, bread and sweets. A flavor of butter, hops and bitter. SirLimpsalot (4162) - SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2011
Doftar absolut inget. Smakar lite smör, bröd och metall. Inte något att hurra över. gyllenbock (9100) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2011
Bottle in St Petersburg, July 2011.
Clear golden with a small white head. Boring beer, some malt and grain. Light body and a short aftertaste.

500ml bottle from a little supermarket by the railway station in Murmansk, shared at XIV Session in Tromsø 22.Jun.2011. Clear golden body. Caramel, leather, cheese and a light whiff of orange. Too carbonated and too sweet. The retro design calls for (n)ostalgia.
