Medium white head. Yellow body. Peppery apple and milk aroma with papery notes. Dry-sweetish pappery papery taste with grassy notes. Mid-bodied. Dry papery grassy aftertaste lasts a long time, the paper being fairly powerful all the time. Not too horrible, though. Also fairly bitter. (0.5l can, Netto supermarket, St. Petersburg. My can said 5.2%.) rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 25, 2009
500 ml bottle. Finland.
Clear golden colour with small white head. Malty aroma with some cardboard and notes of hops. Sweetish malty flavour with some crisp hoppiness. Goes well with Russian food. FatPhil (16117) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 11, 2008
500ml bottle (Kasakka, Helsinki)joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Straw colour, brief head. Almost no aroma. Fairly fizzy palate. Initially quite a fruity estery taste. Soft malts too, but fairly thin watery body. Slightly papery in places. However, the whole litre was drinkable without any pain and anguish. Great salty gherkins to go with it!

Pale golden with a dense head. Aroma has some dusty hops and some butter. Flavour is quite short and has more hops and butter. It all ands on a watery note.
(Restaurant Kazak, Helsinki). Nice lager looks. No remarkable nose, but flavor has some really nice hoppiness and some sourness. Very tasty and excellent companion to russian food, loaded with sour cream. Braincage1 (147) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2007
Bottle in Russia. This must be the Bud light of beer in the Russian world because it is the cheapest beer at only $0.15 making it cheaper to buy than water. Still even the cheapest Russian beer is better than a Bud Light. Pretty much your typical and average lager. D (577) - Gdynia, POLAND - JUL 22, 2006
Typical lager look, aroma and taste - hops, bitterness; a bit alcoholic. Nothing to write home about. thedm (6189) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 27, 2005
This bottled brew poured a small sized head of frothy large sized of unnoted length white colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body contained average carbonation, was transparent and light orange in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild malt hop . Its mouth feel is initially smooth with a lingering palate and a mild malt hop bite in the finish. Its flavor contained slight astringent malty notes. A very average brew.

Hazy golden color liquid that seems to pour rather thickly. Small lid of dirty white bubbles. Dry industrial malt aromas. Pale honey sweetness followed by yeasty malt and an odd melon like flavor. A hint of herbal bitterness. Just when I thought it was safe to start drinking some of these again.
