    из горлА

    question to native English speakers.

    there's an expression in Russian "пить из горлА".

    That means to drink the content of the bottle (usually alcohol) just out of the bottle, without pouring it out in glasses.

    Is there such an expression in English?

    Дак, перевод есть в словаре: drink straight from the bottle.
    Я изучаю английский язык и поэтому делаю много ошибок. Но я не прошу Вас исправлять их, Вы можете просто ткнуть меня носом в них, или, точнее, пихнуть их мне в глаза. I'm studying English, and that's why I make a lot of mistakes. But I do not ask you to correct them, you may just stick my nose into them or more exactly stick them into my eyes.

    I guess that the topic starter is looking for a set expression but not for the direct translation.

    drink it out of the bottle. Do you want a glass for your beer or you want to drink it right out of the bottle?
