Krasny Vostok Zhigulevskoe

Always scary stuff when one reaches for an Eastern European lager. Not many high quality beers in this genre from that part of the world if the truth be known. This one came from a Russian Supermarket on the East side of Atlanta.
Pour is as expected, meaning that we get a clear gold colored liquid with a white head that disappears almost immediately. Virtually no lace. Some nasty looking sediment.
Nose and tastes give a curious lemony, sweetish, soapy sensation that lingers. Watery in terms of the mouthfeel and a plastic like sweetness comes into the picture.
I found it very difficult to drink more than a small amount and down the drain it went.
