The fact that the second one is in a plastic bottle made me go looking...

I think there is a pretty good reason most haven't heard of this, if it's as mediocre as the reviews say.

There's a Net Cost Market down the block from my house that sells these and many other Eastern European beers. Net Cost Market is a NYC-based chain of Russian supermarkets. They also sell Germans and a few Belgians for the best prices I've ever found them. The place even fills growlers, although I haven't tried them out for that yet.

Mediocre is putting it kindly. If you want a lesson in skunked oxygenated beer this would be a good place to start. There's a reason why most breweries shy away from green and, most especially, plastic bottles. After taking a sip I would welcome a Bud Light and for me that's saying a lot. Stay away.

p.s. props to whoever can translate the first beer's label without using translate google.

Haha, so you didn't like the second one. How was the first one?

Not a wimp just

a) not that into high abv beers

b) I haven't been drinking a lot lately so my tolerance is nil and 12% would knock me off my ass

c) I mainly bought this as novelty item. I will eventually sample it though I doubt it will even be drinkable. Pulling off a 12% abv beer takes mad brewing skills even for a professional brewery and since I or most people on here haven't heard of it, it probably tastes like fruity, heavy, gasoline.

Most of the Eastern European beers I've had are overly sweet, and yes, way high alcohol for the style they're replicating.
