Yarpivo Extra Lager

Yarpivo beers are a product of the Baltika Breweries of St. Petersburg, Russia.

This is a 7.2% ABV "extra" lager, common in Eastern European countries, their version of malt liquor, I suppose.  The beer pours a yellow golden in color with a half inch of thick and foamy white head.  The aroma is grain, some straw, grassy, lightly floral and herbal, with an almost light root beer note.  The taste follows the aromas directly and finishes with a slight herbal bitterness.  There is a tinge of sweetness, but for its high alcohol this drinks easier and lighter than many of the "extra" lagers.
