3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A slightly hazy yellow beer with a fine head. The aroma is slightly perfumed with notes of malt and even the brewmash. The taste is very hoppy from the begining almost like a czech beer - but then it becomes a little watery - and the bitterness doesn't linger that long. It is not that sweet - but has a great balance and is a very pleasant beer to drink. Really good for a pilsener.

Canned. Yellowish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is malts and hops. Flavour is malts, slight syrup and some hops. Flavour is malts, some sweetness and a nice hoppy peak in finish. Not very interesting, but quite clean.

Can (BB 02/2008)
Very bright pale yellow, almost green, decent white cloudy head. Grassy, a bit vegetably and malty aroma, some sweetness and paper too. Light palate. Slightly harsh malty flavor. Clean but boring light bulk lager. As sayravai mentioned, not far from Lapin Kulta.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a big frothy head that diminishes slowly. Worty, grainy orange aroma. Grainy, malty somewhat hopbitter flavor. Medium bodied with just a hint of orange and glue. Decent lager, but not an entirely clean palate.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Light yellow, quickly dissipating head. Smells of aroma, but not much else. Taste is a whole mixed bag of things - ranging from a sweet light maltiness, to nothing at all, to cooking apples, to nothing at all, to beer. No, sorry I was lying about that last one. A masterpiece of blandness, but at least it wasn’t nasty. If I’m being fair, I will own up to a little hint of hop in it. But that might just be the finish of last night’s 100gram still.

50 cL can from Sam’s Quik Shop. Golden yellow pour with a medium quickly dissipating head. Metallic and corny aroma. Taste is grain, corn, grass. Some metallic notes. Medium bodied. Honestly probably the best Baltika pale lager.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, bread), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Surprisingly good for such a pale lager...hops are fragrant, mouthfeel is reasonably good, balance is decent, and it's cleaner than many American counterparts...no DMS or metal here. It may not look like much, but it's decent. It's odd how sometimes the simplest/weakest beers are the best from a brewery.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Common Eastern European Lager - nothing offensive here - nothing to get too excited about.
Wet cardboard aroma, slight, quickly dissipating head. Bubbles last throughout and add a nice contrast to the pleasant light golden pale appearance. Flavor - detect a bit of hops - peppery aftertaste - slightly dry on the palate.
