Arsenalnoye Extra Lager

Brewed by the Baltika Breweries of Saint Petersburg, Russia.

This 7.0% ABV beer pours a light golden in color with a rapidly dissipating head of white foam.  The aroma is slightly sweet grain, like a cereal with milk.  The taste is sweet grain with just a bit of lager funk and bitterness on the finish.  Pretty good for such a high alcohol lager.

This beer is available in a large plastic jug that holds two quarts, one pint, 4.5 fl. oz.  That is a lot of beer, even bigger than the old sixty-four ounce jugs of Colt 45 and Olde English 800 that used to be available.

According to the website:  "Arsenalnoye, beer with a male character, is brewed for real men who value honour, strength, patriotism, family, Motherland."  So chug some Arsenalnoye and then fight the Nazis at Stalingrad.
