2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale pilsener look with a decent white head. Uninteresting hop aroma. Flavour is fair enough with a nice malty base. Still, nothing special really.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
