Weaker and slight version of an american standard beer. A little too light for my liking. A little weak and old tasting as well.

A rather unpleasant Russian lager thatís really not recommended. Sadly, it comes in really big bottles so youíre generally in for the ílong haulí when you buy this brew. Odd, somewhat unpleasant taste.

thin sweet yellow lager. very light and watery. no distinct malt taste but has a hint of hops in the bitter aftertaste

Sigmund (4939) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 11, 2002
UPDATED: APR 25, 2008 Rerate, 500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 4.8%. Crystal clear pale yellow colour, fizzy white head. Very moderate aroma, some pilsener malts and a weak fruitiness. Very light bodied, relatively dry, very moderate bitterness. Cold, refreshing and easy drinking, but boring.

I liked this one, but I like lagers. I think that lagers generally get low ratings because people are looking for complexity etc., and lagers are not about that. Lagers are pure and clean, and thatís it. Thatís what they are supposed to be, and thatís all there is. You have to be good to know a good lager. In my opinion a true lager taster has the most refined palate of all. And this one fits the bill just fine.

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 7, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2003 re-rated (11/11/2003): clear golden colour, the head is moderate with big bubbles and a nice lacing, clean malty and flowery nose, firm, medium-bodied , robust dry malty finish - a well-balanced and well-made brew (did they changed their receipe recently ?)
(02/07/2002): transparent golden colour, no foam, discreet, neutral, no character - weak (4/2/4/2/8)

Sometimes, I just donít know why I bother. Light, yeasty, just not good. very little depth or character.

baseballguy (246) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2001
Iím not much of a lager guy, but I quite fancied this. Light, sweet, zippy, appealing. After their excellent dark, that makes 2 out of 2 for Baltika in my estimation. Hail to our Russian comrades.
