26 Sep 2017. From Combini. In Bavaria hefe glass. Playing Draw Love. Ultra drinkable, light malty sweetness, adequate bitterness, no cardboard notes nor other defects. Very good feel and refreshing.

Brought back from St Petersburg, one of 14 I managed to get back with my wife's help. Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a small white head that disappears to next to nothing. It smells malty with something sweet coming out. This has to be one of the sweetish beers I've tasted in a while, with some malt & hops coming out as well as a slight citrus taste. Feels of quite a high carbonation level. Overall I'm not loving it, more one of novelty.

Yields a clear, bright yellow color, with a decent, bubbly head.

Smells of toffeeish, sweeter malts, with hints of grain and wheat.

The taste is incredibly watery, drinks like a soft drink, but with less taste. All I get is a smooth mouthfeel, provided by biscuity malts and faint hints of sugared grains, then, nothing but a slightly metallic carbonation. Finishes completely watery, with no hops becoming noteable at all.

Pronounced "Nyevska," this beer is brewed with water from the Neva River in St. Petersburg. Picked up at a downtown St. Petersburg gift shop, where I opted for the local option over the Carlsberg.

The beer pours a light dirty straw and amber color with a bit of head. The retention isn't great, and there is no lacing. Nothing stunning about the way this beer looks, though I suppose the novelty of new and local beers strikes a soft spot with me.

The nose is equally average...some grains along with grassy hop aromas, nothing really stands out aside from some residual sweetness. The flavor again mirrors the aroma, though the sweetness is more than just malty. There is something compelling in there, but I can't quite figure out what it is.

Light to medium in mouthfeel with a delightful amount of carbonation, HeBCKoe is a reasonable beer to try, but there are other beers out there by the same brewery, even, that surpass it by leaps and bounds, especially on their home turf.

Brown 500ml twist-top capped bottle obtained in Antwerp from the Russian shop (along with 5 other different beers from Baltika). Just out of date when reviewed and drank, poured into three 'Veltins' Pilsner, stemmed tulip glasses.

The rear label claimed the beer is for export to Germany and is a 'Helles Bier'. All the writing was in German.

Mid pilsner gold in colour with a fast departing white head.

Floral, sweet pea sort of aroma, a sweetness also present in the smell.

This is most likely the sweetest Helles/Lager/Pilsner I've ever tasted and I've tasted a few! Strange beer all round really, Baltika seem to brew a lot of simular beers to this one (although not as sweet), but the 4.6% isn't repeated on any other beers I know of.

Strange and different, almost feels like honey is involved somewhere. Normal lager body, nothing heavy, just average I suppose.
