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.

jamaty (1148) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
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.

downender (6880) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2015
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.

Reconqvista (339) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 11, 2015
Amber color beer with a big, frothy and lasting tanned head that lasts well. Aroma is malty with some caramel and bread notes. Flavor is sweet with a balanced bitterness combined. Body is watery and carbonation is low. The end is long and sticky.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2015 Beautiful clean amber colour. Generous fluffy head with some hints of light brown. A bit of alcohol in the nose. Well balanced malty and cereals taste with a bit of bitterness. Pleasant mouthfeel, medium body.

APPEARANCE: redish copper color and translucent with orange highlights. thin beige head with medium-low retention. TASTE: slight cereal like flavour with moderate caramel notes. low bitterness with a semi-sweet finish. PALATE: medium-light body with medium carbonation. OVERALL: an average bulk dark lager with a somewhat artificial caramel flavour.

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.
