Typical Russian malt lager. Over here it comes in pop bottles. I detect a faint taste of raisins to go with the alcohol in all honesty. Sounds bad, looks average, but the taste is unique. Worth it to try and see if you like it.

Pours a clear golden amber with a typical off-white head. Not impressive, but this is a pale lager. Aroma is crisp and malty, and has a hint of fruit. Flavor is malty, just a touch fruity - not much more. Texture has decent fizz, but body leaves something to be desired. Fair to middlin’, leaning towards fair.

Mostly clear gold with two fingers of off white head that lasts about 4 minutes as shows no sign of lace.
Smell is light malt with a hint of apple or grape skins and ethanol.
Taste is like a slightly refined malt liquor. There are a bit of bready malt flavors but the boozy or cheap white wine character kind of pushes them far into the background. Mouthfeel is modest carbonation and has a medium body. There is a tinge of bitterness in the finish if you chew it some. Not sure that would be hops though.
This beer came it a handsome can which led me to believe it would be better than it is. I would probably rate it lower if I were more familiar with Euro Strong Lager style beer.
