heavy (2161) - Split, CROATIA - FEB 28, 2008
0.5 l green bottle brought from Russian shop in Graz, as the last of 4 Baltikas we had that evening. So let’s see is export somewhat better, again, a pale golden body with medium head... Slight hops in aroma, but dominated with malts, and of course nasty again. Flavor same crap as aroma, and quite similar to no.5 - malty with vegetables. Finish this time retains it, too, with that industrial malts. I was questioning all the time why should they export such a crap! Well, may not be so offensive, it’s kind of drinkable, and I have had worser for sure, but simply I am too tired of so bad pale lagers...

AskForJenny (1024) - Ontario, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2008
500ml - Pale gold, fizzy appearance, faint green apple nose, green apple and concord grape on palate. Funky and forgettable.

Bottle courtesy of and shared with heavy (thanks!)
Medium to big white head, went at a medium pace. Yellow-golden body. Worst of the four Baltikas we’ve had today. Completely watery, weak eggy maltiness, weak background hoppy bitterness. Again, not offensive, just blah. What’s the point of making 4 dull lagers, each only marginally different from the other? No, really, what? To go through all the existing terminology? Gotta catch all the "types". Pale, gold, export, classic... you could switch the names and no one would really notice.

jjuf1853 (1245) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - FEB 21, 2008
Bottle pours a pale golden color with a frothy white head. Sweet aroma consists of fruit with some malt. Somewhat dry with a sweet aftertaste but not much overall flavor. Not a fan of this one.

Russo (1690) - Campinas, BRAZIL - FEB 14, 2008
Canned in St. Petersburg. Pale yellow color, thin white head. Aroma is malty and the same to the flavor, good for hot day, so refreshing. Low bitterness. Mouthfeel is refreshing ans a little bit seet.

Português:Cerveja clara com pouca espuma, aroma e sabor maltado, pouco amargor, boa para dias quentes, retrogosto refrescante e mei adocicado.<P>

Embrouille (2830) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 7, 2008
Bottled 33cl. It pours a golden beer with an average white head. The nose is malty with hints of apples, burnt tyres, lemon and almonds. The taste is of pale malts, apples and marzipan. Slightly oily. Rather sweet with a good hop character. Nicely biscuity. Interesting finish with a surprising hint of licorice. Slightly peppery.

faroeviking (10288) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 2, 2008
Bottle bought in Riga. Pours a pale golden colour. Bit sweet aroma of some hops and malt. Rather thin mouthfeel. The flavour is weak with some hops, bit of malt and grains. A rather watery beer.

BelgianBeerGal (3241) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2008
Bottled. Pale, yellow colour with a small white head. Very little aroma, just slight corn/grain. Just an average euro lager, maybe slightly sweet but I didn’t get the harsh flavours like other raters. Not bad, but far from great.
