2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2005 Just how many pale lagers does Baltika have to brew? They’ve shown with their Baltic porter, for example, that they’re capable of much better things. Oh well, this one, at least, isn’t too massively offensive. It looks okay, pale yellow and well carbonated with a frothy white head. (Too bad, it didn’t hang around long.) The aroma is malty sweet with little detectable adjuncts. It’s also spritzy and lively in the mouth. The flavor is some grassy malts, a bit of tin, and a hint of floral hop bitterness in the finish.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pour is a bland yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma is not a skunky as i thought it would be coming out of the clear glass bottle. Flavor is clean and slightly malty but hops are not present. Bland overall.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Killearn Liquors, Tallahassee, Fl, - 500 ml bottle. Pours a light golden with decent bubble action and a sad excuse for a head. Aroma is industrial and soapy. Flavor has traces of corn, cardboard and alcohol. Ever so faint traces of honey to sweeten it up. Not the most pleasant expoerience. Thin mouthfeel. Overall, a typical subpar Russian lager.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Musty, starchy aroma. Sulphurous, eggy. Very clear, specimen-colored lager. Finish is quick and bland. Not very hoppy, a little bit sweet. Some vegetable broth.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep golden colour; just off-white, collapsing head. Rather fresh, grainy nose, herbal-smelling hops. Sodden-sweet taste, vaguely malty; almondy surrounding, corn(?). Bit slick MF, more than light bodied. If there’s anything special going on, it’s too subtle for me. Sweet, slick and boring.
