1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow appearance with a small white head and moderate lacing. Grassy, grainy aroma. Sweet up front and in the finish, but the underlying vegetal flavor, especially in the aftertaste, emaciated the palate. I’ll pass if offered again.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
0.5 l green bottle brought from Russian shop in Graz, as the last of 4 Baltikas we had that evening. So let’s see is export somewhat better, again, a pale golden body with medium head... Slight hops in aroma, but dominated with malts, and of course nasty again. Flavor same crap as aroma, and quite similar to no.5 - malty with vegetables. Finish this time retains it, too, with that industrial malts. I was questioning all the time why should they export such a crap! Well, may not be so offensive, it’s kind of drinkable, and I have had worser for sure, but simply I am too tired of so bad pale lagers...

500ml - Pale gold, fizzy appearance, faint green apple nose, green apple and concord grape on palate. Funky and forgettable.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle courtesy of and shared with heavy (thanks!)
Medium to big white head, went at a medium pace. Yellow-golden body. Worst of the four Baltikas we’ve had today. Completely watery, weak eggy maltiness, weak background hoppy bitterness. Again, not offensive, just blah. What’s the point of making 4 dull lagers, each only marginally different from the other? No, really, what? To go through all the existing terminology? Gotta catch all the "types". Pale, gold, export, classic... you could switch the names and no one would really notice.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle pours a pale golden color with a frothy white head. Sweet aroma consists of fruit with some malt. Somewhat dry with a sweet aftertaste but not much overall flavor. Not a fan of this one.

Canned in St. Petersburg. Pale yellow color, thin white head. Aroma is malty and the same to the flavor, good for hot day, so refreshing. Low bitterness. Mouthfeel is refreshing ans a little bit seet.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 33cl. It pours a golden beer with an average white head. The nose is malty with hints of apples, burnt tyres, lemon and almonds. The taste is of pale malts, apples and marzipan. Slightly oily. Rather sweet with a good hop character. Nicely biscuity. Interesting finish with a surprising hint of licorice. Slightly peppery.
