IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Tap on the streets of St. Petersburg. Poured a pale yellow with a fizzy white head. Sweet caramel and spice aroma. Flavor of very light toffee, corn, and almost no hop presence. Very seltzerish, despite the above-average aroma.

Pours a five finger white head that fades quickly to a ring leaving traces of lace. Chrystal clear amber color. Light carbonation and light-medium bodied. Skunky nose. Starts sort of sweet, corny/grainy not much flavor. Easy enough to drink on a hot day but Iím glad I bought only one. $1.95 for a 500ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 19, 2006
Bottle: Clear pale yellow, moderate fluffy white head, fairly nice lacing, light carbonation. † Sweet nose, sweeter than most I think. † Faint whiff of grass and skunk. † Semi-sweet grassy flavor, somewhat dry, quick finish, very clean. † Not at all corny as I thought it might be. † Decent pale lager if you ask me. † Moderate body and mouthfeel. † Uneventful overall, but totally sessionable.

LibraryBrewer (50) - Goodridge, Minnesota, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Golden color,aroma of grain and light malt with a bit of sweetness and a slight tinniness.Flavor was on the poor side with a grainy light malt taste something medicinal and unpleasan,just not good at all.I recall when i was there that a colleague could barely get started on this one,i think he had 2 small sips and pitched the rest.Iím a bit more daring and finished mine.Still No good,not sure why but this one just had something that didnít sit well with me in the taste.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Gold pour with fluffy, 2-finger white heaf. The aroma is honey, corny pale malt, with the taste being the same, and a fairly smooth palate. Passable as a lawnmower beer.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2006
(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

EithCubes (5090) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2006
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.

SudsMcDuff (5944) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - APR 25, 2006
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 thatís the best baltika so far...the porters a match though..try em all!

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - APR 20, 2006
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 itís 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.
