Two new beers from Vasileostrovo Brewery are Let’s Go and Ginger Ale. The first time, Poholy was tried at the Prodexpo 2021. As you can guess from the name, it is dedicated to the flight of Yuri Gagarin. Most of the tasters agreed that this beer doesn’t fall into the Hazy IPA style and is closer to Westcost. Now trying the bottled one.
Poechaly (Let’s go) (Russia, St. Petersburg) – 6/14 Aroma for DDH is weak, but quite noticeable. Grass, a bit of citrus. The taste is a bit dry. In the aftertaste also grassy bitterness, which by the end of the bottle begins to get bored. At the end of the aftertaste appears a bit spicy. In principle, for those who care about “hitting the style,” this beer can be called both hezy (it’s cloudy) and DDH. I liked it better the way it was at the show, even if it was “out of style”. C+ grade.
Ginger Ale (Russia, St. Petersburg) – 6/15 By the name of Ginger Ale, usually a non-alcoholic beverage with ginger. In this case, it’s quite a beer with 6% alcohol. The main trick is the absence of hops, only malt, fresh ginger and lemon peel.
It turned out interesting. A little sweet (I would have preferred drier), but tasty. The ginger is both aromatic and flavorful. The lemon zest is not as noticeable, but gives a little refreshing acidity. Rated B+.
It would be interesting to make this beer less dense. Approximately 10-11% ENS. This is a good one for summer!
