My first Russian beer \ lager and I must say, great stuff !

Perfectly carbonated when poured, the bubbles stick sound for a while, the color is a light gold, typical pilsner style look. Great head, which doesn't stick around to long (this might be due to me being inpatient!)
Great smell, there is something to it I honestly can't describe, but it is the best smelling lager I've ever come across!
Smooth and clean taste with a crisp aftertaste which sticks around for a while which I love, very enjoyable. Easy to drink

Anyone who hadn't yet it I can only recommend ;-)

A-golden with a huge off white head

S-smells like a typical European lager. European grains and honey. Doesn't smell terrible.

T-actually comes in with a very nice and crisp taste of light honey and fresh grains with a subtle hint of that classic european lager taste. The after-taste has more honey, more crisp grains, and more bitterness. This is actually quite okay!

M-crisp medium carbonation with a semi dry finish

O-I actually love this. It has a taste of high quality and it's so drinkable! This has got to be the best euro lager I've ever had. I wish I could find this by the case here. It is quite cheap though!

A- Light golden and very transparent with little head

S- Smells grainy and biscuity almost like a pilsner but with less hopping

T- Taste is like the smell but more complex than I would expect from a lager. Lots of bready flavors.

M&D- Medium-light and refreshing as hell

first let me say i have never seen a pulltab bottle that made a big pop sound like a corked bottle

poured a very pale gold with a 1 finger head that dissipated very quickly

smell was good light cereal and some grassy hops

luckily it tasted nothing like the smell
sweet grains and maybe a little friut

mouthfeel was good - light and crisp

drinkability is high and for 2bones a pint i will buy this again

from St. Petersburg Russia. 1 pint. 9FL oz, 5.49% Alc Vol.

A big foamy head that takes a while to dissipate. A nice golden lager. Impressive that it still retains a 1/32 inch head throughout drinking it. A very clean crisp taste with a nice dry finish.

Pours pale straw golden yellow with a large foamy, going to rocky, head that leaves lacing.

The smell is grainy with some lime and sulfur. A nice amount of subtle floral notes come through.

The taste is sweet grain (slightly caramelish) with a touch of lime. An underlying floral bitterness gives the sweet graininess a nice balance. Finishes refreshingly dry.

The feel is towards full for the style, but lands appropriately in light-to-medium bodied. Crisp.

Thirst-quenching, refreshing, easy-to-drink with a nice taste, I could easily "session" this. One of the better export lagers out there, IMO.

Picked up a 6pack of green 11.2oz bottles. The pop-top opener was a real crowd pleaser. Poured into pint glass. Appearance was light yellow, some bubbles and head that disappeared rather quickly. Light carbonation. Taste was better than expected. Not as skunky as other Easter European beers. Sweet and malty. I Could drink plenty of these.

this was an excellent beer that can surprise most beer drinkers. It was light but full of flavor, that almost resembled Spaten. A nice crisp taste allowed it to go down easily and quench my thirst. It trully should be highly recommended. As a master of beer, I would say it is at the moment one of my top 25.

Poured a pale golden golor with massive white puffy long-lasting head. Attractive lacing.
Smell is slightly sweet but really barely detectable.
Taste is light, crisp and very refreshing. Left a nice full mouthfeel with moderate taste retention.
Nice crisp finish with great drinkabilty.
Better tasting than a domestic lager and much more enjoyable.
