Small white head. Clear yellow body. Faint malty grassy aroma with gasoline notes. Dryish grassy mealy taste with dandelion notes. Mid-to-light body. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish mealy spicy grassy aftertaste with dandelion and fruity notes. Decent, but a bit harsh. (0.5l bottle from a street kiosk in Moscow.) auvajs (144) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 28, 2011
Can brought from Russia by my roommate. My very first Russian (and probably last for a long time:D) beer. Light golden color. Taste very pale. Poor beer for me. Enjoyit (3809) - Vadum, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2010
Pale golden with a white head. An aroma of malt, vegetables, hops and dusty. A flavor of malt, sweets, dusty and vegetables. FatPhil (15964) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 19, 2010
500ml can (?, Tallinn)zvikar (6068) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - MAY 15, 2010
4 light fruity, citrussy, almost limey aroma
2 pale and fizzy
4 Simple macro lagery taste, but with some unpleasant corners. there are some hops, but they’re grassy
2 sweet caramel and fruit, very slavic lager. finish has pencil shavings.
7 more interesting than finnish macros, but far from good
Pours yellow with a nice carbonation and a large white head, aroma of bread and biscuit maltiness with some floral notes, flavor is malty with some nice herby and straw backbone, pleasant bitter citrusy finish, medium body, more like a premium lager.

A paint-by-numbers Russian pale lager but it definitely threw me on the aroma. Anchovies and lemon juice. Strangely fishy and lemony and got metallic as it warmed. Standard clear, pale yellow body with a thin, scummy white head. Flavor was like water that had a twist of lemon in it, subtle grain notes. Snegurochka (395) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2009
Pours a clear light straw colour, with a small white head and spare lacing. Scent of malt and chalk. Dry straw flavour with an element of grapefruit. Soft carbonation. 500 ml can purchased at the Hotel in Barensburg, Spitsbergen for our beer session in Tromsø 24.sep.09 estpiwo (1319) - ESTONIA - OCT 5, 2009
0,5L bottle. Grassy aroma. Golden color. Flavor is empty, some malty tones. Common beer for large market. Rune (12587) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2009
Thanks to Elisabeth for bringing a 500ml can from the hotel in Barentsburg, Svalbard to our rating session at IHR. Light-yellow in body colour with an one-finger, white head. Dry, pale malt in aroma with hints of cardboard. Dry grassy flavour with hints of citric fruits. Lemony bitterness to the ending. Easy to drink. Quite alright in a Russian context of this style (Tromsø, 24.09.2009) SaintMatty (7300) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2009
500ml Bottle - Golden with a white head. Malty and grassy aroma. The taste is malty with a faint bitterness and hints of corn.
