bubbly, clear goldish colour, euro lager definitely not a pilsener!
has that bittery firm flavor that i ve been looking for a long time. VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 22, 2002
Clear chartreuse. Fast dissipating foamy white head. Light carbonation. Clean aroma, hints of sulfur, hard water and spicy/lemony hops. Crisp and bracingly biting. Sharp mouthfeel. Bitter and spicy hop aftertaste with some lemon peel notes. Quenching and easy drinking. Clean and hoppy with a delicate malt backbone. Hints of sweetness. Hard water finish with more lemony notes. Better than expected. JPDIPSO (6296) - Wauwatosa, USA - SEP 11, 2002
Straw color with a decent white tight bubled head. Aroma of light floral hops. Light crisp malt flavor with a dry slightly bitter finish. Very nice light clean lager when cold. Fresh sample: Best By 18, 06 2003. OD40oz (774) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - AUG 30, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2008 Not only does Russia have hot women but they brew good beer too. I expected a bottle of vodka with yellow food coloring but it was actually a decent pilsener. I would buy this again anyday if I could get it in South Dakota. Good old Ruski’s, you gotta love em. Bagratun (1) - Barcelona, FRANCE - AUG 17, 2017 does not count
Got it from an Armenian shop in Barcelona. Nice bottle and design. Nice to the sight pale yellow. Many carbon bubbles, refreshing. The taste is clear, clean, corn aroma. While lager is not my preference, I don’t get tired of it.

Golden-amber colour; fresh, grassy nose; biscuity palate, with a herbal-grassy hoppiness. Not especially bitter, but a pleasantly hoppy finish. Quite refreshing, and a standout amongst the world's pale lagers. Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - MAY 11, 2003
Very carbonated brew.Medium sized head that faded quickly.Nice golden color.Malty aroma ,that is slightly hopped.Slight citrus presence as well in the aroma.Almost a lemon grass smell for the citrus aroma.Taste is mildly hopped malty slight lemon grass after taste,an almost metallic taste as well,it might just be this bottle.nNot bad but definately could be better.

My first taste of Russia. Pretty good hops, pale yellow in colour and nice frothy head. As indicated in previous ratings, I'm not a big lager fan...but this was a good one.
