Very clear yellow pour out of the 1 pint 0.9 fl oz bottle with green labels. Labels say it is brewed and bottled by OAO Krasny Vostok Brewery, Kazan, Russia.
Aroma exactly like cider. Lots of apples, but only a hint of the alcohol that is in this relatively strong brew. Low carbonation, so low in fact it soon resembles something that is quite flat.
Alcohol is prominent in the taste with some astringency and dryness in the aftertaste. A bit of a kick in the finish too. Some creaminess in the mouthfeel.
Definitely not a run of the mill beer in the style, some really quite strong alcohol and malts in the taste make this one stand out a little from the crowd. Good dry finish, an interesting animal.
