A remarkable lager whose natural ingredients and brewing method create a uniquely pleasant bouquet. Some beer drinkers note a hint of spiciness, others say the aroma reminds them of a gentle breeze in a pine woods. Called Petrovskoye in Russian. The brew’s mellow taste is due to an extra special variety of yeast. Brewed from 2009 at Bochkarev.

One of the most interesting Russian tastes which could be described as "yeast and wheat domination". I would call it Hoegaarden Grand Cru Light or Slottskallans Kloster Light for its unusual Belgian character. The draught version is pretty much the same as the bottled one.

(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.

500 ml can @ home May 07,2013 Beer bought in a tiny supermarket in oldtown Saint Petersburg,Russia during a holiday in April and brought back home in my suitcase. Weak golden/yellow in color. Very weak in aroma and taste, but slightly smell and taste of hop and malt. Nothing to remember

Typical lager look, aroma and taste - hops, bitterness; a bit alcoholic. Nothing to write home about.

500 ml bottle from supermarket in Vyborg, 4.9 abv, clear gold colour, small white almost instantenously gone head. Aroma is bread and floral hops, a bit of paper in the mouth, otherwise fairly balanced taste, fairly bitter herbal finish. Light body, fizzy carbonation. Quite boring but drinkable, but on the other hand decent amount of alcohol and almost half cheaper than most other beers in that shop, but this consideration is useless as it’s Russia and if you want to get drunk for cheap the only proper solution is vodka. Actually the latter applies for the rest of the world too now that I think of it.

Like austinpowers says, this is different from most russia beers. I has a slight pasta smell and aroma. The russian beers I have been sampling (3 of 6 that I have) have poured with a pretty large head that turns into a white chunky floatiy bits on top in about 5 minutes. Flavor is mild fora lager. This is still pretty good but it still proves that Russia makes good Vodka not good beer.

Bottle. This beer poured with no head and was a yellow orange color. This beer is a very sweet beer that reminds me of the mass produced American beers like Miller, Bud, etc. Nothing special going on with this beer.

50cl can. Yellow, clear pour with faint white head (looks like pee), no lacing. Very, very faint aroma of caramel, almost odorless. Taste is weak and watery, bland. Little to no carbonation. At this point I’m not sure if this counts as a beer anymore.

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.
