Very typical and basic, but a decent easy drinker on a warm spring day. Clear and golden with a small fizzy fading head. Soft and smooth on the palate, with some bready notes and grassy hoppiness, finish is somewhat dry and spicy.

This is my second Russian beer. This is a lager that is bottled in a clear bottle with a clear golden color. The head was very small and quickly disappeared.. The presentation is excellent. This is basic beer with sweet malty flavor. I have not tried some of the Russian stout yet. This is an ordinary beverage with no notable characteristics.

From a 1pt. 9oz. clear glass narrow neck bottle with a best before date on the back label, 05.02.06. Made an average lager appearance, poured a clear golden with a foamy white head that settled into a thin bubbly lacing, good carbonation. Had a faint grassy/veggie nose with a dry fruity graininess in the background. A crisp, watery light bodied mouth feel, average drinkability. Softly sweet fruity maltiness with a little cereal graininess, the lightest of spicy hop taste, mellow watery bitterness and a dry cereal grainy finish. What you expect from Baltika, an average, not awful, pale lager at a cheap price.

Pours a four finger white head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Chrystal clear light amber color. Light carbonation and light bodied. Sweet malty nose. Starts sweet, faint hint of blueberry?? almost like a light, clean finish. Very good lawnmower beer. $1.95 for a 500ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

(bottle) pale gold with nice white head. Very little aroma. Flavor is slightly fruity malt with a hint of bitterness. Fairly light bodied.

JPDIPSO (5124) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 25, 2006
Light golden color with a diminishing white head. Corn husks and sweet grain aromas. Mild malt and a touch of white grape juice in the flavors. Much like a light malt liquor, but with a little more malt definition.

From the bottle, this presented itself with a monster head, but absolutely zero carbonation. Little aroma, maybe a hint of malt. This is surprisingly easy to drink, though. It’s a nice smooth lager with an oily, bitter finish.

Bottle from Jungle Jim’s. Poured a clear yellow color with an average frothy white head that diminished quickly. Light hoppy resin aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture and soft carbination. Light bitter sweet flavor with a short finish.

Basic yellow lager color with a rather impressive white head. Boring grainy aroma. Watery flavor with just a hint of malt and a little bit of fruit flavor but only when I belch. Surprisingly the clear bottle is not light struck. Drain pour.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Nice, fully golden colour with a creamy, white head. Malty nose. Rather soft and smooth mouthfeel. Malty with some surprisingly fruity notes. A somewhat sticky, sweetish edge indicating brewing cereal. A touch of sulphur. No bitterness. Thanks to Morten O for bringing me this. 070106
