Zarkam (539) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2013
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. bierkoning (13299) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2004
Sold as Zhiguljevskoje for a German importer, with only the Stapan Razin trade mark on the label, but it should be the same beer.
Only a hint of sweet apples in the aroma. Sweet apple flavor, otherwise bland and virtually no hops. Slight glue aftertaste. Beer that makes you sad. FatPhil (15967) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 11, 2008
500ml bottle (Kasakka, Helsinki)Rune (12612) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2012
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!
500ml can, as Stepan Razin Petrovskoe 1795, 4.9% abv, kindly shared by Elisabeth. Next-to-clear, straw coloured body, Low, white head. Fragile lacing. Smell of sweet and dry, pale malts. Herbal hops and malts in flavour added a kind of candy sweetness. Papery dry palate. Minimal carbonation. Rather bland impression. Below par for the style (session in Tromsø, 19.06.2012). omhper (24977) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2003
Bottled. Golden colour with firm creamy head. Papery nose. Very sweet, clean but somewhat yeasty. Sugary finish.

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. Aaron68 (608) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2013
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

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. Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 18, 2004
Very light, earthy, metallic taste. Golden. Quick finish, almost no aroma. Yikes - that’s one fast brew.
