dnicolaescu (2709) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAR 15, 2017
BOTTLE 50 CL as Staryi Melnik iz Bochonka Svetloe at 5%. Clear bright deep gold, white head. Clean malty aroma, not just sugar but proper malts and sweet bread. Clean malty taste with a dash of grassy hops and even some dry crisp bitterness. Gets shittier as it warms up, so keep to on the cold side. Not bad at all for mass market lager.

crossovert (13909) - 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.

Manslow (1855) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 3, 2016
Butelka 0,5l Kolor złoty, klarowne, piana biała szybko opada. Słodowe, goryczka w normie jak na lager. Piwo do wypicia bez zachwytów ale też bez obciachu.

DenverLogan (1264) - North Bend, Washington, USA - NOV 29, 2016
From a unique clear bottle into a tulip glass. Pours gold with head and lace. Aroma of grains, malt, slight honey. Significant carbonation and medium mouthfeel. Flavors of light grains, amber malt, minerals. Overall light, watery, simple with light body, but not bad for the style

500 mL bottle, ABV 5%. Pours golden with very light foam. Aroma is wood, dust, some malts. Taste is sourish bitter, some berries noes, dust, wood, watery. Drinkable, but too watery and a bit over carbonated.

1.4
YantarCoast (1521) - Moscow, RUSSIA - AUG 11, 2016
500ml bottle at 5%. Pours clear pale gold with no head. Aroma is grain, rice, and a weird off-notes of cheese. Taste is sweet and corny with low bitterness. Waste of time.

Ganz normales Standard Lager. Leicht würzig, Getreide, sonst nichts besonderes. Okay
