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.

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.

I liked this one better than Baltika 5 but it had nothing on the porter. This was very watered down and didn’t do much for me. I would have been really mad if this beer wasn’t on sale for $1.99 a bottle.

Pint in a bottle. Light and clear yellow colour, very little head, not much of a smell, watery taste. Would not recommend it.

50 cl can at home - bought in Moscow by my parents. Clear light golden color, disappering white head. Aroma is sweet with grassy malt. Flavor is small amounts of malt, fruity sweetness and hints of bitterness. Thin.

You know that food that tastes better than it smells? Well this beer smells better than it tastes. I thought I had a real find when I poured this beer. Great aroma, then total disappointment with an almost tasteless beer. Not sure how that could happen but it did.

Sampled 9/18/08. Bottled on 6/8/08. This Pale Lager pours a light yellow gold color from a green pull top cap 500ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with nice retention. The aroma is cereal and corn. A medium to light bodied pale lager. The malts are cereal and grain, touch of corn. The hops are floral and spicy. Very lively carbonation helps balance out some of the corn sweetness. A touch watery and a little harsh, but its not bad for a pale lager. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

More like a commercial American lager than anything else. Everyone else I was with raved over this, it is very easy to drink, but lacks flavor. I recommend the porter, it’s light years ahead.
