Whoa DMS aroma. Holy sulfur. Sweet, cidery, corn aroma. Yuck! Transparent blonde color with fizzy white head. Metallic, watery, bitter to finish. Kind of tastes like baby wipes. Vile stuff.

Yellow straw colour and poor disappearing head. Overcarbonated. Keeps the style of other Melniks but has no any distinguishing features: watery, soft and dry.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2007 (Canned) Clear, pale golden with a smallish, but quite firm, fading head. The aroma has sweetish and acidic, corny maltiness with some toffee-caramely character and honeyish hints. Sweetish, lemony-honeyish-malty flavor with low bitterness and mild acidity. Almost medium-bodied, slightly sugary palate with fizzy but balanced carbonation. A reasonably drinkable, honeyish and not completely tasteless lager. (Bottled, was 3-2-4-2-7=1.8) Pale yellow-golden golor with small head. Very mild aroma with a hint of honeyish maltiness and hops. Quite clean, slightly sweet and sour flavor with too little malt and few hops poured in - maybe even some added vegetables. Quite long, hoppy aftertaste. Light-bodied, nearly watery, carbonated palate. Not among the worst light lagers, but quite boring anyway.

Boring all over the board. Fizzy, not much flavor, loses carbo rapidly. Aroma is musky crackers. Not sweet, slightly malty. Inoffensive. Finish is thin and lightly malty, but it doesnt cling.

bierkoning (12669) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2004
Awfully bitter, like too long cooked vegetables. Very soapy. Terrible beer, with horrible aromas and flavors. Drain pour (after two sips, one to find out this beer is undrinkable, the second to confirm this)!!

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2004
Straw colour lager with a small foamy head. Not much smell, just slight hops and malts and some skunkiness. Very boring lager but better than a lot of macros as it seems to have a creamy feel in the mouth. Worth a try but wont have it again.

Lager color, creamy white head. Very nice hoppy nose. Crisp mouthfeel. Steady malty body and bitter hoppy aftertaste. Some metallic notes.

Draft, in Moscow. Again, not much individuality, just another Russian pale lager. I made the mistake of drinking it while eating a bowl of peanuts, and the stale peanut shell taste carried through to the beer. I had to have something native while while watching Russias opening match in the European cup, and at the Marriott in Moscow, its either this or Heineken... Heineken! This country needs a shot of pride in its local beers!

My first from Russia. Very light gold color. A thin head. Smells of wheat and some sweetness. Slightly skunky. Flavor is subdued with very little character.
