Rojiza, clara. Abundante espuma. Aroma tostado y a fruta roja. Buen tono general y equilibrio entre cuerpo y carbónico, este ultimo marcado. Agradable sabor entre malta tostada y arándanos o casi mejor pacharán. Final ligeramente amargo. La mejor de las baltikas. Buena lager en un estilo poco común.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from an East European grocers in Horfield, Bristol. Deep copper in colour, with a momentary and big, off-white, head and moderate carbonation. Sweet, toffee and red berries, with a metallic edge, some jarring rye earthiness and heavy, bready, finish with a trace of bitterness. A novel experience for this British drinker, but not a particularly positive one.
