Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 1B). Bottle 50 cl - Batch 5W. AROMA: mild cereal aroma with no hop presence. APPEARANCE: very pale yellow color and cristaline. thin white head with low retention. TASTE: slightly sweet cereal flavour with a very low bitter and almost dry finish. PALATE: thin body with medium-low carbonation. OVERALL: another bulk pale lager only meant to be thirst queching.

Jeg fortsetter min suute gjennom Baltika via den døgnåpne russiske sjappa ved hotellet. Klar gylden, kort hvitt skum etc. Fullstendig intetsigende og føyer seg inn i rekken av rævkjedelige internasjonale lagere. I vasken med den.

0,5 l can kindly provided by a neighbour. Pours a clear sparkling golden body with a short lived white head. Sugary nose laden with wet cardboard. Mouth is the same, and the stale bitterness promotes the cardboard. Light bodied.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 500CL bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a soft aroma of malt and maybe some grass
Appearance- A straw yellow color with a fairly large white head.
Taste- Has an ok malt flavor comparable to other Euro Pale Lagers
Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate carbonation has a crisp finish.
Overall- An OK beer, if you haven’t tried it I would suggest it to knock it off your list.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
DATE TASTED: February 8, 2015... GLASSWARE: Baltika stange... OCCASION: post-workout protein during the Cavs stomp of the Lakers... APPEARANCE: clear as crystal golden body--classic pilsener build--with vibrant effervescence; promising white head settles swiftly to a reasonable quarter-inch coverage; zero lacing... AROMA: biscuits and bread, with funky bad-breath elements forcing their way through the glass--a turn-off ... PALATE: mildly effervescent, oily, fizzy and long bitter, astringent ending ...TASTE: mildly sweet, with faint caramel; a pungent finish, with awkward, cloying unbalanced corn maltiness--were are the hops? ...OVERALL: the dark offered a malty character; this suggests the palest lager with enough malt to affirm its allegiance...

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Clear medium amber with a frothy 2" white head, dots and flares of lace. Looks like the old commercial ads for the National brands years ago.Taste is malt with something else that doesn’t change as it moves through the palate to a finish with only a hint of hops along with carbonation. Short finish. Looks pretty good, taste is thin and weak.

Can. Vary pale lager with a big white head, medium carbonation, weak aroma. A bit watery in taste but it could be worse.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very pale lager with medium carbonation. Little flavour to be had - though what was lingering was a slight metallic tang which does not help the cause.
