2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle... Clear, light yellow lager with a large, fluffy, white head. Good retention. Spicy white pepper, pale and biscuit malt aroma... doughy. Leans well onto the sweet side of balance. Corn syrup flavor with peppery/earthy hops. Medium-bodied with a lightly oily mouthfeel and intermediate carbonation. Crisp, but sweet, finish. Much better than expected!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
50 cl can in Cyprus. The best of their laer, rane, perhaps, but still a mediocre beer. This need, food, vodka or salty snacks to balance it. A nasty medical flavour lingers in the bakcground, and it is too sweet.
I won’t seek out more of the Baltika beers, and I can see why the Norwegian importers have limited temselves to the wheat, which is decent.

(Bottle) Pours yellow with a small white head. Lots of carbonation. Light mouthfeel. Seemed overly sweet to me, which is a real turn-off in a pale lager. Grassy notes in here as well. I’ll pass if I’m ever offered this again...

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle, clear gold with a filmy off-white head. A malty aroma with a strong alcohol presence. A (weird) bitter and earthy maltiness - a little metallic though. A bit different, but not enough to make me think much of it...

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Found this one bottled in Belvidere, Illinois. Very light yellow pour with a rapidly dissipating, carbonated white head. Very bubbly, like champagne. Lemony sourness dominates the nose with a bit of hay, dry, with an indication of canned corn towards the very end. Finishes clean but why bother?

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Green bottle. Pours a clear light straw color with a thick white head that laces down the glass. Lots of carbonation on the sides of the glass. The aroma is light malt and only a bit of cardboard. Fortunately I got this beer from a good seller who kept it in a box. Very light body, with a typical light lager flavors. Overall, not bad for the style.

Pours pale yellow with thin head. Mild grassy aroma. Flavor... what flavor? Tastes like soda water but a little dusty. This is not beer.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Canned. Poured clear pale golden with a short-lived cap of white head and some spotty lacing. The aroma picked up bushels of artificially-sweetened corn, banana, and ass... sweet overall and a real turn-off. Flavor was powerfully sweet with corn, dried grains, and a hint of banana extract present... mild floral and hay-like bitterness.. left a sticky, sweet, and unpleasant finish. Hegher carbonation. This made its way to the drain rather quickly.
