Clear golden, medium white head. Malty aroma. Clean. Lollipop. Medium body. Lots of pale malts on taste. Nuts. Clean. Light bitterness on ending. Was welcome on a winter day in Moscow.

500 ml impressively embossed twist-off bottle. It pours an amber color, reminds me of a typical Russian "malt liquor" decent to start but at it warms gets pretty gross.

Bottle 500 ml. Amber color, a little creamy foam. Aroma: malty, strong, slightly dried fruit, raisins and candy. Taste: very malty, wine, alcohol, a little dried apples and pears.

Butelka 0,5 kupiona w Mołdawii. Dość dziwne piwo, w smaku karmel, kwas chlebowy, żyto i tym podobne. Nie powaliło mnie.

artemb (1292) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - DEC 4, 2015
Aroma: caramel and malt. Taste: light to moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Flavour: malt, caramel, some grassy hops, light metal notes. Light bitterness and light astri

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 man’s heller bock.

500 ml bottle, clear amber color with thin white short living head. smells like alcohol. taste are some kind sweetness with caramel notes and b bit bitterness from hops. aftertaste are mostly sweetness and alcohol... i think its more bock than vienna lager

YantarCoast (1624) - 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.
