Russia and beer often don't go together. Pit...or Пит...is no exception. It has decent flavor, nothing too special. It is a standard lager. I drank it straight out of the bottle, and it left no big impression. I had quite a few of them around St Petersburg, as most beers in Russia are lagers, and I just stuck with this one. It was decent enough to drink...

This is the flagship of the breweries products, but is non-descript at best. It pours a slightly dark, almost reddish gold, with a big fizzy head that disappears pretty quickly. The lace, however, is thick. There is a slightly sour, slightly soapy smell to this brew, while the mouthfeel is standard pale malt. The taste opens malty, with a touch of soap. There's just a touch of hops in the finish, but the aftertaste is malt above all else. Not a bad beer, really, but not a great one either.
