Light gold color with a white head. The aroma is carrots and potatoes. There is also some black chocolate. The taste is light carrots with a metallic hint. There is also some sweet glazed donuts. Another decent lager from Baltika.

can - hey look, more lightly flavored water. Seriously, I’ve had well water with far more taste than this beer. It’s not offensive. It goes down easy. It’ll get you drunk eventually. It’s just hardly there.

(500 ml bottle: $1.79 at BevMo in La Jolla, CA) Oh my word, this is like drinking a Light beer. The flavor is so light, it’s hard to find the taste offensive. I’m more offended that something with so little flavor could actually be considered beer. Truly, take an American Light beer, add sugar, and dilute it to half strength and you have Baltika 7. Wow. The lightly grainy flavor is quite sweet and sugary, and with absolutely no hops to add any crispness, the finish is almostly cloyingly sweet after a few more sips, and is now leaving a horrible aftertaste in my mouth. Okay, now I find this beer’s flavor offensive! Very light body to start and the finish is downright watery. The aroma is grainy and of course very sweet too. Pale straw color shows perfect clarity, revealing the many streams of carbonation bubbles rising through the body. The white head pours to an inch in height, settling back to a thin, filmy layer within a few minutes. A good amount of patchy lacing is left on the glass, though that too dissipates for the most part. An ice-cold bottle of this beer might not be too bad after mowing the lawn on an oppressively hot and sweltering summer day, but alas, the sweetness is just too much, so it’s not even good for quenching thirst. About the only positive thing I can say about this beer is that it looks okay, and it’s not skunky. But no question, this is a total drain pour. And I can no longer fight the overpowering urge to go brush my teeth and swish some Listerine.

Yellow, ok white head. Aroma from hay and grass, rather hoppy. Hoppy flavor with some alcohol. Mild finish.

Pours a nice light golden yellow. Aromas of hops, malts. Taste is crisp with a nice mellow hop flavor.

Not one of the better pale lagers, watery flavor. Appearance is just as all those other pale lagers, refreshing on a hot day but not more.

Dorqui (2115) - Brescia, ITALY - SEP 21, 2005
Friable and compact foam, good shape and persistence. Yellow pale color, bubbly and discreetly lively, dark reflections. Determined alcohol and malty scent, light herbaceous rumors on the end. Fresh taste, much stinging and racy. Strongly alcoholic, nearly a soft malt liquor to my opinion. Preponderant bitter and alcoholic tenor. Wrapping and pungent end.

Kevin (2109) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 16, 2005
poured from a green bottle i grabbed at S&K. very light straw colored gold body with a very large bleached head. veggie corn aroma that makes me think of canned peas. o.k. the head finally settled enough for me to pour the rest of the bottle into my glass. grainy sweetness to this. not a natural sweet flavor either, but not too synthetic. something leathery to this. but wow, this dries out fast. leaves me thirsty and miserable to quote black flag. there isn’t one easy way to describe this except to say this is bad in a few different ways. i can find nothing appealing in this. if a coconut and a cob of corn were combined and fernmented with some stale hops in a barrel made of plywood, this would be the result.

The beer after its extraction from the 500ml green bottle resides in my glass a luminous gold with a diminutive frothy white head that evaporates quickly leaving a thin cover of lace upon the glass. Nose is archetypal lager sweet malt that is fresh, crisp and clean, with the start slightly sweet and the grain presence adequate but a bit light, top is fair to middling in its feel to the palate. Finish is pleasantly spicy as far as the hops go acidity moderate and the aftertaste desert bone dry, a passable beer, but nothing to get excited about.

canned; from Rutzicka - pours a very pale yellow colour and shows a nice white head; fat grassy and shy nose, a buttery touch, oily with a moderate malt body, sweet with a light herbal finish - lacks terribly of character
