UPDATED: OCT 18, 2008 Bottle from La Mesa Market. Amber/brownish in color. Sweet aroma with some maltiness and maybe a hint of chocolate. Good full bodied malty flavors. Some sweetness and spices as well. Finish is sweet and malty with a little bit of hoppiness. Pretty enjoyable.

Slightly acidic grain flavor with a hint of fuel and an underlying malt liqour sweetness. Smells like grainy malt liqour. Tangy and stupid. I hate russians and I wish i wasnt one...its like an american standard with alcohol graininess thrown in..Not my cup of crap, fo sho.

dnicolaescu (2439) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - NOV 30, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2015 BOTTLE 50 CL. Clear amber-red, beige head. Pretty decent caramel and malty aroma, a hint of bread. The taste is simple - caramel sweetness, a touch of malt, a bit thin in the middle (not watery though). The finish is moderately bitter with notes of grassy hops and alcohol. Not bad - a poor mans heller bock.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2003
Bottled. Deep full amber colour with beige soft fine head. Sweet malt and grain aromas with bread like qualities (another one of those delectable beers that makes you hungry). The taste was just as moreish. What I liked most was it wasnt overly sweet like some Belgians but balanced more in keeping with Vienna or Bohemian style. Many thanks to SilkTork et al for his help in identifying this one.

GTAEgeek (2117) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Bottle in Moscow, Russia. Pours a deep, clear amber color with a medium white head. It leaves a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is very malty, with some notes of corn, pine hops, and some slight, tart fruits. The flavor is mostly sweet with an unpleasant sour and bitter finish. The body is somewhat heavy, and the alcohol warmth is undeniable. Overall, a decent beer.

YantarCoast (1246) - Moscow, RUSSIA - NOV 12, 2014
500ml bottle, ABV is 6.8%. Pours a very pretty amber with a small white head that fades, but not completely. Minimal amount of lacing. Faint caramel aroma. Taste is caramel followed by a slightly bitter and alcoholic finish that I found a bit harsh to begin with.

Pours amber with thin white head. Aromas are smoke, caramel and booze. Metallic aromas. Not really a good one! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
