(GUBERNIJA) ZHIGULY GRAND 9.5 LAGER
High-octane strong lager from oldest industrial Lithuanian brewer turns cheap malt liquor buzz to horrid hangover. Bargain basement 99 cents for 9.5% alcohol made prohibitive by overt boozy astringency and cloying caramel corn malting. Shoddily sticky pastry-like finish is nearly deplorable.
