1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle from a dry friend of mine. I don’t know what I expected, but this beer is pretty awful, even for a non-alcoholic. It pours a pale yellow and has a large white foamy head. It has ample carbonation and leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. The aroma gives you hopes of some malts and pine hops, but the flavor is almost non-existent. There is little taste to the beer other than a slightly sweet starting flavor and a very slight, bitter finish. The palate is very light and still, almost like drinking water. Overall, a passable NA beer, but not worth your time if you aren’t dry.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bought this in Moscow, Russia, at a local supermarket I live near. Fellow beer drinker and brother-in-law visited and we planned to try some Russian brews while he was here.
In drinking this Baltika, I was disappointed on almost every level. The appearance was incredibly light golden (which wasn’t that bad), but the smell was not attractive at all, the taste (or lack of) was very bland.
Avoid this, partly because it is non-alchoholic, but mostly because it is a bad one.

0.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Green 50cl bottle with a pull tab. Opened with a pop. Pours very thin, very light yellow straw color. Tall white bubblicious head, looks like bath bubbles. Very distinct aroma of green malts, very pale straw scent with a touch of fruit. Big bubbles cascading to the surface, the largest I’ve seen in a beer. Very fizzy mouth feel. Flavor of sour apple candy. no real decection of any malt flavor. Fizzy water with a touch of green apple Jolly Rancher disinfectant finish. I hope I don’t get sick now....

Very weak aroma and very thin and non-existent taste. I bought the can by mistake, I should not have done that.

50cl bottle bought in egypt. thanks RasmusB for bringing it to Denmark. Bottle is not as pictured but the graphics are the same. Named Baltika 0 non - alcoholic.
clear yellow, thick yellow head. looks fine in a tulip glass. no lacing and head disappears quite fast.
dusty and sawdusty aroma,
flavor is quite metallic, a little citrussy, sweet malts, grains , faint cereral. Not a bad tasting lowalc beer but not a good tasting either by a far shot.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
It’s golden with a small, white head. The aroma has notes of mash, malt, oil and metal. The flavor is sweet with notes of mash, malt and light metal, and it’s not very enjoyable.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours with barely any head, and an average yellow colour. Aroma is of wet bread, just like any other low-alc out there. Flavour is wet grains with a dry finish. Okay carbonation. Very boring.
