suurjuust (3540) - ESTONIA - JAN 24, 2012
Pours coppery, thick white head. Nose is malts and paper, taste is malt and grains, sweetness, hints at caramel, almost no hops. Aftertaste is lemony and grainy. Thin body, smooth carbonation. Decent pale lager.

Nicely designed bottle. Clear pale amber colour. medium white head. Average retention. Malty nose of grains & bread. Light body. Oily. Malty bready taste. Some caramel. Clean. Low to light grassy bitterness on ending. Hoppy aftertaste. OK

Bottle - 4,4%. Pale golden body, medium head. Weak malty aroma with light pilsner hops. Watery but mostly clean taste. No strange gluey stuff that is common in some Russian macros. But yeah, it’s quite watery. Finish gets slightly papery but only when you let it warm up.

Vells (1846) - Rīga, LATVIA - FEB 19, 2013
Pale amber with medium white head. Bit lasting. Some laces. Aroma.. malty with some weak grassy hops, grainy, kinda fruity. Sweet to bit bitter spicy finish. Quite dry. Not the worst, but I wont repeat this

KoNrRiI (1514) - Århus, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2013
0.5 bottle. Amber color not that bright even; small. white head, it’s rather thin but stays for a short while indeed it even leaves a bit of a lacing. Aroma bases on the well-worn pale lager scent but puts some pleasant dough and malts into the equation. Mostly tastes of corn and pale malts, rather on the sweet side. Light body, thin texture and lively carbonation. Finish is short and grainy, nothing special. Overall it is good in a regard that it does not offend, seems to be a pretty common characteristic of Russian lagers; however, it does not present any inherent quality by itself.

YantarCoast (1370) - Moscow, RUSSIA - MAR 28, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours light amber with an off-white head. Aroma is faint - seems like a standard pale lager with some caramel. Taste is sweet. Meh. A shitty example of the style.

Bottle. Pale amber color, medium white head. Light fruity aroma with grainy tones. Taste was malty and little bit sweet. No hops. Very short aftertaste. Drinkable.
