3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly insipid copper brown appearance. No head, too much carbonation. Aroma strong on caramel, toffee and vanilla. Taste is unbalanced, going from something unpleasant to alcohol to pure sweetness. Sweetly pleasant aftertaste. You never know what you’re going to get from Baltika, but this one’s ok except for the jarring first taste.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fles gekregen van een collega. Amberkleurig tot bruine kleur. Witte redelijk stevige schuimkraag. Ziet er smakelijk uit maar daar blijft het helaas ook bij. erg waterig in de mond en totaal geen kracht. Bitterheid van de hop kan ik niet ontdekken. Nee helaas dit was 1 malig.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
.5L bottle from a corner shop because they were out of Baltika 6 and I was always curious about this one. Pours a brownish ruby with a moderate brown head of large bubbles. Aroma of caramel, corn syrup, chemicals. Taste is cloyingly sweet malt syrup with an astringent finish. No hops. This beer is buyer’s remorse--I would have preferred just about anything else over this beer. Not even worth the $2.50 paid.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours clear red / copepr brown with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of caramel malt, with notes of yeast and touches of hops. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt, with notes of hops and touches of yeast. Sweetish and slighty bitter aftertaste. Either I did not rinse my glass properly after the previous beer, or this one is actually quite decent.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
DATE TASTED: February 7, 2015... GLASSWARE: Baltika stange... OCCASION: A pinewood derby/violin recital/quiz bowl triple play--quite a day!... APPEARANCE: this beer is heard before it is seen, with a sizzling fizzle that quiets to an iced tea head of inconsistent bubbles; dark amber translucent body that holds steady effervescent; weak, spotty lacing... AROMA: caramel syrup is clearly present; pitchy, sweet malts are unbalanced by any hop aromas... PALATE: rather thin, watery mouthfeel that moves swiftly to the throat--akin to a sugarless iced tea...TASTE: mildly sweet, with faint caramel; a pungent finish, with awkward, cloying unbalanced corn maltiness--were are the hops? ...OVERALL: a slightly alcoholic, corny, malty, syrupy attempt at a dunkel...what’s not to like? not much...slightly enjoyable ...
