I purchased a bottle of Zhiguljovskoje for $2.79 USD in Glendale,CA/USA.

Look: Zhiguljovskoje has a tan foam with a visual consistency similar to the meringue of a pie.
Smell: Zhiguljovskoje has an aroma of both minerals and musk.
Taste: Zhiguljovskoje has a bittersweet taste mixed with a high flavour of earth minerals.
Feel: Zhiguljovskoje has a medium amount of carbonation.
Overall: People who are willing to drink any beer would probably be willing to drink Zhiguljovskoje!

I'm giving Russia's Baltika Breweries another chance to redeem itself from a series of disappointing and under-average beers . . .

OK: Poured from my 12 fl oz (355 ml) bottle into a tulip glass.

Nose is somewhat light, a bit of dandelion but with has that cheap mass grain production, I can smell the alcohol something sweet like corn syrup (Uh oh, not good . . .).

The pour is clear, slightly dark golden hue (my first thought: Urine): Head starts of well, about an inch high, but vanishes after 35 seconds. From the glass, very light nose, just the alcohol and that sweet com something . . .

Taste is weak, no floral, no hop notes, no style, bland, watery: And a bit on the stale side. On second taste: No . . . DEFINITELY stale. And leaves a waxy, kinda sticky film on the tongue and back of the throat. This is not good at all: I don't even know if I can finish this glass, let alone the bottle.

Real Russian piss water. Look, there are many good and decent cheap beers out there - But this most certainly isn't one of them. I should have known better when I saw the the picture below of this alleged "beer"with a blue plastic soda bottle screw cap on it. Bottom Line: one of the worst beers I've ever drank. A travesty. I want my money back. And my taste buds too.

Pours a bright clear golden color. White head forms but no lace really. Aroma is grainy, with some stale noble hops and sweet corn. Corn and malt sweetness in the taste, perhaps rice too. The beer is light and sweet with a slight bitter stewed hop flavor. Not the tastiest beer in the world but it is just macro swill. Light bodied and pretty easy to drink. Overall, this is an average macro lager. I feel no need to drink it again though.

Poured from a pint bottle into a tulip glass.

Pours straw in color. Almost no head at all. About 1/8 inch. Dissipates almost immediately.

Very sweet and sugary on the nose. Smells like a bag of sugar.

Aluminum on the taste. Sweet and almost no bitterness.

Watery body and minimal carbonation. Very slight stickiness on the tongue.

Good Ole fashioned slightly skunked lager from a foreign country. Boarder line foul, yet I'm still drinking it. If you see this, no need to pick it up. It's like a slightly worse ripe Heineken.

A: Pours a clear pale gold with a white head that disappears quickly
S: Slight grainy smell with a touch of apple scent
T:grainy. not much else there. Not very much hops flavor. Sort of weak.
M: Light bodied and refreshing. No sting from the carbonation.
O: A drinkable beer. It is what it is, a euro-lager. Not great but then again not bad. I could drink this on a hot summer day after working in the yard.
