UPDATED: NOV 4, 2015 ,5l pour from tap into a tall skinny glass mug at a Chinese food restaurant in Bishkek. Pours clear and yellow, moderate head, no lacing. Not much to look at. Fairly unassuming nose, some graininess to it. Taste is is smooth and clean while largely devoid of notable flavor. Not bad, but not too memorable either.
2nd rating at home in Kazakhstan. This time ,5l from a refrigerated bottle into a footed pils glass. Pours clear yellow-orange, fairly active carbonation, short fizzy head. Nose has a notable bitterness to it. A little off putting, but I think better than nothing. Light body, crisp, sharp, a little watery. Taste is bitter, a little hoppy, with some biscuitiness in the background. I think overall this is a beer suited to the drinking culture here in Kazakhstan. By that I mean it should be paired with salty snacks (preferably fish) and probably some sort of a meat dish. Consumed with food, I’d probably bump the rating up a bit. jann3 (423) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 13, 2015
Pours deep and clear golden with a smallish head. Aroma is malty and grainy with a hint of floral notes. Sweetish and malty taste, but finishes with moderate bitterness. Average CO2, slightly watery mouthfeel. A very nice brew for a bulk lager, definitely better than expected.

Had a one liter tin can of this beer while in Tallinn, Estonia. A standard light gold color with an average-sized bubbly white head with modest retention, cling, and lacing. The aroma had notes of grainy and lightly earthy hops with a bit of corn, barley, and a touch of malt. A fairly grainy bitter beer with some corn character and a slight sour yeast effect. The beer had average carbonation with a thin and somewhat watery mouthfeel with a dry effect. MrGrigg182 (497) - Tambov, RUSSIA - AUG 16, 2015

500 ml can. BB 17/02/16. (Prisma) Tallinn, Estonia.Hoppy_Luke (2105) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 21, 2015
Clear deepish golden color with a small frothy white head.
Dry grainy malt and some mild hoppy notes in the aroma.
The flavor is sweet malty with some hoppy notes and mild cardboardy dryness. Not the worst one.
Kolejne piwo puszkowe, kolejne litrowe, kolejne z Rosji. Tym razem, zwyczajnie, spodobała mi się limitowana puszka. Zawartość nie była jednak tak atrakcyjna. Tragedii nie było, ale sporo brakowało do zachwytu! Złoty kolor, z dziurawą, nieco przybrudzoną, pianą. W aromacie typowy lager. W smaku też. Nieco metaliczne, ogólnie jałowe i bardzo starające się być nijakie...
