Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is pale golden. Aroma and taste are sweet malt. Light bitter finish. HenrikSoegaard (14166) - Randers, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2008
Bottle. Standard pale lager, nice head. Too pale yellow colour. Everything else is light and week, but ok pale lager. faroeviking (10911) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 29, 2008
Bottle bought in Riga, Latvia. "Vecais Dzirnavnieks." Golden colour, short white hed. Grainy hoppy aroma. Mild sweetish hoppy, maltish and bitterish aroma. Simple. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 7, 2007
Canned. Yellow colour, big fluffy white head. Aroma is maize, some malts and slight grassy hops. Flavour is grassy hops, some malty notes as well as maize. Long grassy aftertaste. Not hopeless, I had waited for something worse... ALLOVATE (3015) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2007
Classy new look label adhered sadly to the side of a clear glass pint sized bottle gives the impression this is just your everyday working man’s lager, yet mine clearly states this is a Russian wheat beer - how odd!?!

Taste will tell.
Excited to be let free; the pour let loose a wickedly fluffy, wickedly quick to die back, three inches of white. Receded back to a spider’s web of mess I could now fill the glass with sparklingly bright, thinly looking yellow gold body. The carbonation fine but very intermittent. Eggy, heated plastic and milled, dried corn kernel nose. I take that back a little, this is like opening a can of corn kernels in brine water, not the best waft at all. Sweetly, sugary, fruity hit-in-the-face on first mouthful. Rather chemical, plastic/rubbery combo and wishy washy, soapy muddle otherwise. Featherweight in feel, but lingering and layering, it holds in the mouth long overdue for retreat. Finish is drabby cornmeal, no evident hops - or is there as there is something very dusty and pasty about this!!! Candi sugar and corn sweetness layers the lips, also not too pleasant. I can’t say I would go a good session on these at all, there is far better beer in Russia, I’d say this is best avoided. Definitely not a wheat beer, I doubt there is even that much malt in this.

Clear bright yellow body with a short head. Strong corn aroma that carries through to the taste, dry, thin and not very nice. Tranquillity (2328) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2007
Grainy hay, earthy aroma. Smells unready. Reddish yellow, thick white head. Taste fresh, quite nice aftertaste as well. JorisPPattyn (9982) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2006
Just yellow-tinted dense head, leaving some lace over straw-golden beer. Initially creamy, then dry malty nose, rather volatile aromas. Very dry-grainy taste, honeyish and a whiff of raspberry with a bitterish finish. It’s a bit dull, a bit simple, but it has a very decent balance. This is better than expected from such a source. Unfortunately, after some warming up, the grain proves oxydized, and probably from last years’ USA imports. Light, bit spritzy. As said, better than expected.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 Bottled 0,50L. Yellow shiny color with a medium resistant head; fairly bubbly one. Alcoholic and strong scent of corn e malt, determinate alcoholic tone in the nose. Enough pungent taste with simple rumors of malty and hop. Not much dense one but however weighty taste. Medium/short final. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Pilsener golden with a creamy, white head. Malty nose. Rather dry body dominated by bittering hops. Actually reminds me of a solid German pilsener. 171205
