Dacrza (852) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2010
Situation: New Year’s Eve--round one, thanks to the Baltika gift pack (8.99 witha glass) Glassware: the Baltika gift glass... Appearance: light, almost golden yellow body with a nice cirrus cloud of off-white head; diligent effervescence--not too bad on the approach... Aroma: classic Eastern European pilsner scents--hay, honey and sharp sugars... Palate: medium-bodied, puckerish on the lips and lacking on the backend; the aftertaste, albeit weak, has some staying power... Taste: rounded, heavily malted lager--sweetness of sugar and honey; clean and smooth, with a hint of complexity... Overall: excellent lacing and the Baltika glass makes this a compelling drink on New Year’s Eve, although I bet if this were next Thursday night, I might not be as festively aroused by its aesthetics... pours well with potato skins, pizza bites and mozzarella sticks...

JaBier (6976) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2010
Bottle sample at the Hopsnobbery Collective "From Russia With Suds" tasting on 1/2/10. Clear yellow pour with a thin white head. Crisp nose with some sweet malt. Malty sweet flavor with some crisp hop. Pretty light overall.

dedelste (16) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2010
Gift bottle (LCBO or Beer Store). Pale, small head, good carbonation. Smells like a pale lager, cereal/corn, stronger than some, not unpleasant. Tastes about the same, slight sourness. Harmless, no more.

Quack-Duck (9120) - Down South, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2010
bottle froma local Russian supermarket. Clear golden colour, large white head. Malty nose. Full-bodied. Rather sweet malty body with an aromatic hoppy finish, resulting in a bitter-sweet character (with emphasis on sweet). As the beer gets warmer, the hops get "dusty". Quite nice, perhaps a bit too much on the sweet side.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JAN 6, 2010
(bottle - 330 ml) Clear gold pour with a soapy white head. Aroma is light and grassy with some corn, malts, and dry hops. Flavor begins slightly sweet with a dry and malty middle. Some bitter hops and wet hay come through near the end with a dry and sweet finish. Drinkable and really nice when ice cold.

Dogbrick (11492) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Sample at the "From Russia With Suds" tasting on 01/02/10: The beer is a clear bright yellow color with a medium foamy white head that recedes steadily. Sticky patches of lacing on the glass. Biscuit malt, straw and mild hops in the nose. Light body with flavors of sweet toasted malt and mildly peppery hops. The finish is clean and malty with a lightly grassy hops aftertaste. Below average overall.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JAN 4, 2010
bottle with a production date of 7/13/2009 consumed 12/29/2009. clear pale yellow colored pour with a clingy fluffy white head. the nose is really sweet and grainy... alcohol (5.4%??) and a ton of florals. the flavor is the same... with added sugar, wet musty grass and grain.... it’s rather like drinking sweet grainy heineken. the body borders full because of the sweet sticky mouth feel. 5/3/5/2/10/2.5

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2010
(bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a big foamy white head. Slightly sweet and dusty strawy malty nose with a tinge of acidity and grassy hops. Slightly sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a medium carbonation. One-dimensional strawy malty taste with grassy notes; dry malty and slightly grassy finish with a tinge of bitterness. Boring but drinkable. 04.I.10

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2009
Bottle from the LCBO- Sparkling gold pour, topped with a foamy bleached white cap. Nose of grainy malts, mild grassy hop, a bit skunky to be honest. Tastes sweet, of pale malts, sharp grassy hop, a bit metallic. A bit of a bite to the finish. Overally pretty bland.

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 21, 2009
What the hell is up with this cap? A peel off pull tab bottle cap!!! I like it!!! gold in color pillowy white crown. Smells exactly the way you’d think it should Euro skunk crap lager with a taste to match. Some notable hops. Sweet apple lingers in the after taste, malts are sweet, dark and bready. Not as bad as I thought it would be but still not all the yummy.
