Wouldn't квас the colour of apple juice be... weird?

Пиво по цвету, ближе к квасу, чем к яблочному соку. Впрочем и по составу тоже.

квас looks like Guinness; nice and stout xD

I agree. I have asked my parents that many times in my life...

Precisely. There is apple juice called 'kids' drink', which is in a bottle looks like beer bottle, in my country.
When kids want to try beer, we give the juice and say 'This is kids' beer.', then they will be satisfied. They are so curious but we can't give them real beer.

I know стакан is a glass, but a sentance before it was cup, and so I tried it here and it was marked as wrong, because it's glass.

The devious стакан чая claims another victim.

We always drink tea from a glass cup, or стакан, if that's your cup of tea. :-)

a cup - чашка, a glass - стакан
