DATE TASTED: February 8, 2015... GLASSWARE: Baltika stange... OCCASION: post-workout protein during the Cavs stomp of the Lakers... APPEARANCE: clear as crystal golden body--classic pilsener build--with vibrant effervescence; promising white head settles swiftly to a reasonable quarter-inch coverage; zero lacing... AROMA: biscuits and bread, with funky bad-breath elements forcing their way through the glass--a turn-off ... PALATE: mildly effervescent, oily, fizzy and long bitter, astringent ending ...TASTE: mildly sweet, with faint caramel; a pungent finish, with awkward, cloying unbalanced corn maltiness--were are the hops? ...OVERALL: the dark offered a malty character; this suggests the palest lager with enough malt to affirm its allegiance...

A: Straw yellow filtered with a few large bubbles, 3 fingers of white head.

S: Water, pee, a little malt, just like the style does.

T: Malt, light sweetness, clean linen, crisp.

M: Light body, medium carbonation, crisp finish with a malty light hopped coating left on the tongue.

O: Not a bad brew. Got it at the Russian Import store in Kunming, drank Jan 26th, 2015.

This one is a Russian version of a classic pale lager, and it's comparable to other European beers of that style. I like their porter a little more, but this works when it's warm outside.

Your run-of-the-mill pilsner. It doesn't say "light beer" on the bottle but it kind of tastes like one. Easy drinking. Not bad... but nothing about it is particularly interesting.

Poured from a 500CL bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a soft aroma of malt and maybe some grass
Appearance- A straw yellow color with a fairly large white head.
Taste- Has an ok malt flavor comparable to other Euro Pale Lagers
Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate carbonation has a crisp finish.
Overall- An OK beer, if you haven't tried it I would suggest it to knock it off your list.
