Pours a crystal clear, medium brown; the color of strong pekoe tea. Sweet smells of warm pumpernickel, waffles. Taste is toasty with definite notes of rye/pumpernickel. Sweet caramel and toffee on the swallow. Medium body. Smell of rye malt really picks up as it warms a bit. This is an awesome beer! Definitely a euro-style dark lager and was not intended to be a Munich Dunkel. Style categories at this site are in serious need of correction/expansion.

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.

finn1918 (211) - Georgia, USA - FEB 21, 2015
.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.

Bamsen78 (3707) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2015
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.

MiP (13952) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle, 5.6%. Rough hop aroma. Clear red/brown colour. Big stable creamy tan head. The flavour is caramelly and alcoholic. Full stop. And a bit oxidised. Then full stop.

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 ...
