Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 28, 2012
Draft at park kiosk Kiev.
Gold with a lasting small head
Aroma of wet pale malt, damp cereal, and pale spent grain
Oily palate. Almost too clean for the style, low diacetyl, its a pretty drinable one, but the oily palate makes it a true zhiguly. A decent one. Not bad for 8 hv ($1).

Полтава Жигулів& - Poltava Zhygulivs’ke. 0,5L bottle 4,4% abv, 11’. Made 30 august серпня 2013. Bought in a hypermarket in Poltava, enjoyed at Kremenchuk’s Day. Scents of sweet malts, strawberry, cinnamon, syrup. Fragile white head on a yellow golden body. Tastes grain, malty hops, malts, barbecue, wood.
Mouthfeel nice, a bit sweet though. Aftertaste; malts again, wood, brown sugar, fading into the dark. Overall a decent drink, a very sweet tasting beer. alex_leit (4050) - Minsk, BELARUS - JUN 20, 2016

Pretty terrible rust-malt aroma, and the rest isn’t much better, with the skunky taste I associate with the zhyhulivske/zhigulovskoe genre definitely present. This one is however much yeastier, which improves things, though I wouldn’t necessarily return to this one nickel (1094) - UKRAINE - APR 29, 2014
Pale lager with golden color. Malty aroma and malty taste. Little sourness at the tounge with slightly bitter aftertaste. Drinkable caribou43 (1024) - Lausanne/Sevilla/Lima, SWITZERLAND - JUN 28, 2017
I bought this beer at the slavmarket in Paris. I drank it yesterday after the work, at home in Lausanne. The limit of this bottle was november 2017. As usual, it is an average lager/pils, typical notes of the East countries. The taste is watery, malt, dry one, hop and typical pils bitterness, a little metalic, the workee beer by excellence.
