2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Poured a golden yellow with a white head. Slightly skunk aroma mixed with malt. Tastes of bread with a bitter aftertaste. Better than I thought it would be, still not that great.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Single bottle purchased at Food Emporium in Everett, WA. Pours a pale goloden yellow. Flavor: Slightly bitter, with light body and a clean finish. Not too bad.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
20090131 green bottle with a pull tab top from JR Brielle. Pale yellow and fizzy with much visible eff and lasting thin white head. Sulfurous aroma and some grassy hops. Cardboard and white bread malts. Sweet. Lingering metallic aftertaste. Not really worth the tick.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear golden with a tiny bit of white foam. Aroma is malt and corn. Flavor, what there is of it, is dry with some malt and grain. Just a bit of zing in the feel. Why did I buy this?

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml can from Arkhangelsk, by courtesy of Konstantin, for the first superpower beer session in Tårnrommet. Straw-golden body under a fading, foamy top. Momentary smell and taste of dry, fruitlike malt. Tolerable sweet. Light in the mouth. Rather anonymous [Tromsø, 13.01.2209].

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bright golden colour with big firm white head. Sweet malty aroma. Bland flavour, short crisp finish. A Heineken wannabe.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
16-9/10-ounce bottle. What can I say? This stuff is as boring as almost every other lager out there. Has the classic euro skunkiness a la Heineken, but little more. Flavor is not that great overall. I recommend passing on this one unless of course you just want it for the sake of rating; Then it will have at least some purpose.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
16.9 fl oz. Thanks to Art for this one. Aroma has some definite skunk on it. Grainy, grassy, and a bit of a sweetness to the scent. Appearance is golden and clear with a medium sized white head that lingers for a while. Taste is grainy, grassy with a decent amount of lager twang going on. Overall it is about as enjoyable, maybe a little more so, than the other Baltika brews. Cheers

Crushed with Jakebra. Hey, fantastic, Heineken has a Russian cousin! Skunked as a mofo. Sabout it.
