(Bottle 50 cl) Clear pilsener golden with a white head. Lovely and fresh aroma of hops. Very soft and smooth mouthfeel. Medium-bodied with a sweet maltiness and a discreet, hoppy finish. Quite a pleasant pale lager. 090506

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Green bottle. Clear pale yellow with bubbly white head. Light, malty aroma. Tastes of grain and a bit of mash, touch of sweetness, touch of industry. Light body, somewhat crisp, ends on a slightly harsh note. Subdued. Really, not terrible for the style.

I think this bottle looks cool, and the beer itself looks quite nice too. same old smell,some but not alot of bitters, leaves good lacing.Taste is a bit weak but i kinda liked it. There are better lagers but a import for this price...in the end, a non offending beer that’s the best baltika so far...the porters a match though..try em all!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a 1pt.9oz. narrow neck green bottle with a best before date on the back label. Made a average lager appearance, poured a clear pale golden yellow with a foamy white head that settled into a thin bubbly lacing, good carbonation. Had a grassy hop nose with a sweet dry pale grainy maltiness. A slick, smooth light-ish medium bodied mouth feel, average drinklability. Dry spicy, grassy hoppy crispness upfront, mellow in it’s bitterness, a dry, sweet grainy maltiness and a dry, crisp grainy finish with some lingering metallic malt notes.
Well, Great Lakes and DAB have nothing to fear from this Dortmunder, like all Baltika beers, average, drinkable at a cheap price.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
(bottle) Pale yellow with rapidly fading small head. Almost no aroma. Flavor has hints of pepper, but has a bit of skunky finish.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Canned. Pale yellow. medium sweet with clean hard mouthfeel. The BBH patented boiled vegetable flavour is very evident. Very industrial and soulless.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
From the bottle, this poured golden and active with the tiniest of bubbles and a standard lagery head. Light almost lemony aroma. Drinks with a different silky-smoothness. it has an odd biscuity consistency ... ends with an off-putting funkiness.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Typical pale lager pour...light yellow with frothy head. Light malt sweetness with some off/ tart flavors lurking in the background. Very light floral hopping. Corn notes in the aftertaste. All in all an inoffensive brew.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bought a baby keg of this while shopping at BevMo a few months back and thought SB Sunday would be a perfect time to share this. Took it over to my best buddies house and his dad and I split this as much as we could. Aroma clocked in with notes of yeast, grains and malt. Appearance was the typical piss yellow color with a nice head. Mouthfeel was fairly soft but a bit oily. Flavor was average, albeit clean, with a yeasty, malty combo that really didn’t impress me much. No hop bite to speak of, this lager wasn’t exceptional by any stretch of the imagination but it was drinkable.
