I really liked this companies wheat beer but this just mediocre. Way to hoppy if not outright bitter. It was ok at first but drink a whole pintand you will get board. Now don't let it make you think this is a "BAD" beer. It is well made but not anything to shout about. It is way better then the majority of American Macros.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2003
Better ingredients than I would have thought, and a weird case where I got more corn adjunct sweetness while cold as opposed to warm. The warmth brought out a pretty decent flowery hop, but also major tingly hop , character. Sweet bready malt. Could stand a little more oilyness to the body.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 12, 2003
Pale yellow color, slightly sweet, almost a pilsener but needs more hops if that's what they're going for. Not much here, fairly cheap overall.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2003
Pale pilsener look with a decent white head. Uninteresting hop aroma. Flavour is fair enough with a nice malty base. Still, nothing special really.

jercraigs (9154) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2003
Nice pale yellow with an average size head. Aroma is of hops with slight notes of alcohol. Flavour is average, with a surprising amount of hoppy bitterness. Fairly standard lager though.

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2003
Tasted in Toronto from the LCBO. Light yellow colour, white foamy head. Grassy dry scent, with a slightly stale aroma. Bitter taste, with a watery and bland finish. No real malty balance or anything interesting.

GregClow (3040) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2003
Very light yellow with a foamy white head. No aroma to speak of aside from a slight skunky note. Some sweet malt in the flavour, but not much else. Bland and inoffensive.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 25, 2003
Has a yellow color with some carbonation and a slightly skunky smell. Taste crisp light malt/corn flavor and finishes with light hops. Overall it is not a bad light beer.

Radek Kliber (6885) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 24, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2009 Bottle 500 ml
Appearance: pour this lager proper way and it will welcome you with white mid plus top , neatly paired with good shade of gold. Baltika 3 left some lace.3+
Nose: Mild aroma, slightly grainy with expected pale malts, light grassy hop feel at finish.
Flavor/Palate : Mid bodied. Character on sweet candied side. Expect to be crisper. Its mudded sweetness does not work well for its drinkability. Little bitterness with some dry alcohol. Rough finish.
