Golden coloured. Rather well balanced with some maltiness and some hoppiness.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cloudy light straw color.Small white head that lasted for a decent amount of time then faded to a small lace.Sweet malt aroma with a hint of citrus and hops.Light flavor all around.Light malt,hops and the fruit is milder yet.Very thin body almost to the point of being watery.The finish is fairly clean and light as well.Not a bad brew better then some other Macro’s of the same style,but still it’s borderline.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Strong lager aroma that is slightly unpleasant. Pale gold color with small, white head that is mostly dissipating. Good carbonation and lace. Cookie flavor with some bite. Flavorful for a light but really how light is it (calories)? Solidly average. I'm mildly surprised that this is rated more highly than the Baltika 9 as the primary difference between the two is the alcohol. Although the 9 may lose some Palate points, overall it is the better beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light straw color with a taller fluffy white head. Light malt and grass aroma. Initial light malt sweetness and malt flavors. Later evaporates to a watery light grain middle. Small amount of floral hops. Light malt finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma is very light grainy with some hops. A little hazy (is this bottle conditioned?), yellow color, white head, good lace. Malty, maltsweet start, vegetable, little bitter. Fuller than expected.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear light yellow, rather fizzy, slight head retention. Aroma is of bread and dirt. Flavors are very lightly grainy, with a tiny bit of earthy flowers. Not a distinctive brew, but I've had worse. My bottle was thankfully brown, and labelled as a lager.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very Light beer with a thin head. Light mildly hoppy nose. Thin watery texture and not very much beer flavor. The others from this producer are much better.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Similar to the other offerings from this brewery. Light color. Some barely noticable hops. Nothing really to note about this.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear pale with a light ring of very white head. Light, crisp and clean, with no offensive tastes, and nothing to really standout. Not too grainy or sweet. A decent light lager.
