Now just Krynitsa Klasichnae, at 4.8%
Pours clear golden, fizzy strings, white head with poor retention.
Smell of grainy malts, touch of generic hops, simple, with no bad notes.
Rather sweet malts in the taste, with a faint chemical note. Grainy, and the sweetness tricks me into finding some faint berries and apple. Stewed hops, a bit spicy in the end, decent, with a mild bitterness.
Light bodied, kinda watery, medium carbonated, aftertaste a bit unclean.
Simple lager, decent enough with just some small off-notes and fairly far from a drain-pour.

500 ml bottle from Riga

Ingredient list of this "luxury" beer indicate there is some rice inside. Pours very pale yellow/golden with large white head that slowly fades to dense and very persistent layer on the top, some small carbonation bubbles rising, no lacing. Aroma is weak lemony malt, could not feel rice.

Taste is sweet malt, reminds of corn, and some mild bitterness that immediately dissapears, malty finish and faint bitterness sets in again for a couple of seconds. All the tastes flash by in 5-7 seconds, leaving empty nothingness, feels like I have drunk water with a few drops of lemon. Mouthfeel is light, medium carbonation.

Overall, below average lager. What I liked was that it did not leave any bad or cloying taste in the mouth.
