Clear gold in color with one finger retentionless head.
District fresh grain perfume is simply determinated.
Rough malt major tone with awkward hop sensation cause light mouth numbing.
Light grain aftertaste guaranteed. Beer for single degustation only!

The colour is pale gold. Basically, the head is missing.

The smell is very weak, bordering to nonexistent. Maybe some sweetness, or is it just my imagination?

The taste is bland. Some very fragile sweetness, hints of dough and yeast. I noticed "cheap and artificial".

The carbonation is sharp, the liquid mid-watery.

The flavours that exist at all are unpleasant. Have a glass of water instead of this beer!

Found in a fancy Moscow supermarket, the can is black, red and white, with a shield featuring two very muscular arms holding swords. Ingredients on the Russian import label conform to the purity law. Best before 3/25/05, I opened it on 8/18/04.

Pours a pretty standard clear gold under a 1.5 finger white head with big bubbles. Very little retention and no lace. The nose is so mild it is barely detectable - maybe just a touch of grain. The mouth is not quite light but very prickly. There's some malt in the opening, a bit grainy and probably with some rice. There's just a touch of sweetness, too. A slight metallic hops sensation joins later, but it is very subdued. The lasting impression is tinny, with a bit of the grain reasserting itself. Pretty bland stuff, really.
