500 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a minimal head that fades to a sickly looking film. Lits of visible random carbonation. Very typical Pale Lager aroma, some light malt, but mostly that light corn and vegetal aroma of the average World Lager. Minimal flavor, just some corn up front fading to a finish that features mostly water and some light bitterness. Mouthfeel is very watery with lots of prickly fizzy carbonation. Overall, not the most enjoyable beer. Lacking in every category, but then again I wasn’t expecting a whole lot.

(bottle - 500 ml) Pale yellow color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is almost rancid. Very bitter and skunky. Even worse than Heineken. Taste at the beginning actually wasn’t too bad. Light corn, grain, and hop flavor with a watery and clean finish. Aftertaste hits you like a hammer. Very bitter and nasty.

The after its disinterment from the 500ml green bottle it sets in the glass a clear light gold or straw color if your so inclined, the head monolithic in size, a bright white in color and the texture frothy, as it erodes rather quickly, the residual lace forms a thin but encircling curtain to drape the glass. Nose is sweet malt, fresh and clean to the senses; start is lightly sweet with a light to moderate grain presence and the top light to middling in feel to the palate. Finish is worthwhile in its acidity; the hops are orthodox in their spiciness, quite dry aftertaste, a drinkable beer, refreshing in its own right.

Skunk aroma upon opening. Pours a light yellow with a fizzy small head. High carbonation gives this a metalic taste. Not very pleasant or premium.

I´m pretty sure I´m rating the right beer. Green bottle, russian characters, no abv visible. Very grainy and carbonated, typical eastern euro lager, could be refreshing on a hot summers day,,,

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - APR 18, 2006
From a embossed 500ml. euro green bottle with no bottled/freshness date and a interesting symbol on lower left hand side of the back label that I have no idea what it means. Pouring carefully to leave sediment in the bottle, made a decent appearance, poured a slightly hazy pale macro lager golden with a foamy, bubbly top lacing that quickly settled into a thin lacing, moderate carbonation overall. Had a pale grainy malted nose with whiffs of a faint alcohol and spice, the hops? A crisp smooth light bodied mouth feel, your average macro lager drinkability. Sweet grainy taste with a crisp, spicy mild hop bitterness and a grainy, spicy, but not that dry, finish with an unpleasant metallic maltiness lingering in the palate. Well, it’s cheap enough, but not that great of a macro lager, I believe I would take a Bud over this.

Head quickly disapates. Dark yellow colour. Flavours of corn and salt and blandness. Disappointing.

vanvenlo (1923) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2006
6 Mar 06 - Sligtly sweet hoppy aroma. Clear yellow colour, low head and ordinary lacing. Simpole hoppy flavour. Bitter finish ana a hoppy aftertaste.

Lunkie (1965) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2006
Bitter hop aroma. Clear yellow colour with poor head and lacing. Bitter malt hop flavour. Fizzy palate.

SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2006
It’s almost luminescent green, no head to speak of, more a fungal growth on the top. Thick corn flavour which is a hint off. Has no aftertaste. Refreshing to see other countries can make beer as bad as this. Pretty damn awful.
