crossovert (12002) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2017
500ml cool-looking "fat" embossed twist off bottle, 5% as "Stary Melnik Iz Bochonka Svetloe" . It pours a clear gold with a good carb and a soapy/foamy head. Aroma is herbal with a touch of bready malt. Flavor is a touch metallic, very light in body, but prickling carb. It has a typical bittersweetness and just a hint of grainlike malt. It is a touch acidic and better than most pale lagers coming from Russia.

Butelka 0,5l Kolor złoty, klarowne, piana biała szybko opada. Słodowe, goryczka w normie jak na lager. Piwo do wypicia bez zachwytw ale też bez obciachu.
