A lager beer produced using pale barley malt, rice and exclusive varieties of hops which give this beer variety its inimitable aroma, very light and velvety flavor and pleasant bitterness of hops. The addition of rice provides No2 Pale with a surprisingly fresh taste and smoothness, and for these reasons it is easy to drink.
The ingredients are water, pale barley malt, select rice and hops.
Produced since 2004. 11°

(bottle) Mild aroma - just a bit grassy. Pale gold with rapidly fading white head. Mild malt flavor with light body - grassy hops in the finish.

bottle - Old bottle, is this still made? Pours clear, deep yellow with a thin head. It smells mildly malty, it tastes much like a typical pale lager, sweet and possibly with some corn in there. It’s inoffensive of course, and finishes with a touch of mild hops. I’ve had worse and it didn’t seem like the age was a major problem. Though given the quality of this beer, I’m not sure Hotstuff should be thanking me for sharing it, but you’re welcome anyway.

hayduke (3159) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 14, 2008
From 500 ml bottle this looks and tastes like Bud. Clear yellow, rice nose, no head, no lacing. Mouthfeel light and flavors mild. Not a lot to get your attention here.

Bottle: Poured a clear golden color with a white head. Little to no aroma. Taste is a clean corn and grain, refreshing.

Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Baltika 2 mit Reis gebraut. Wässrig, minimal hopfig. So startet das Bier nicht nur, alles scheint sich um diese minimale Hopfigkeit zu drehen, fast schon lachhaft. Lange Zeit passiert absolut nichts, bis es im Abgang aromenreicher wird, soll heißen getreidig, aber auch nur sehr leicht. Weiter wässrig. Wenn es wenigstens mit "Goldbier" gekennzeichnet wäre... Test vom 12.8.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,6,6,7,10,6 - 6,65

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2013 Bottled. A golden lager with a dissipating white head. A sweet shandy like nose with a hint of vomity malt. Same sweetness in the mouth. Industrial lager notes but not altogether nasty. Score 2.2
Subsequent rating scored 2.1 Score unaltered

kevnic2008 (7096) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2012
Aroma is faint, with a bit of mild hops. It’s appearance is a golden color. It’s flavor is a nice balance between malts and mild hops.

edpeg (793) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2012
Pours golden yellow, clear, with white big lacing head. Aroma is malts, grass, some hops. Palate is slick, mouthful, crispy , well carbonated. Taste is thin, watery and medium to weakly hopped. There´s some amount of floral hops with medium short dry tongue feel with some sweetness. Finish is watery and mild. There was sweet aftertaste in the flavor. After reading the etiquette, it was the rice, as I assumed. Pretty tasteless and mild, an OK beer for a thirst once. Nothing going on here, though, beyond that.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Another pissy and tasteless Baltika. There is some malt and some grain in the aroma and taste, but that´s not enough to score high. An easy beer for tougher meals. Ok at all.
