Poura a pale yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma is corny and a bit sour. Flavor isn’t too bad; mostly sweet maltiness but no hops whatsoever. Finishes bland and kinda stale.

If this beer posses a unique taste, my taste buds must be blind. Then can kind of reminds me of some pre soviet soup tins I’ve come across on ebay. I wish BallTikla made more porters and less lagers

OK... so this was better than Baltika 2 (I predicted earlier that they would be equally bad) but it still held that skunky aroma over grasses and grains. Extremely pale yellow with a big, white head. Actually held some flavor with a touch of roasted malt and some flowery sweetness at the finish. Still, nothing to write home about.

Ernest (6222) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2005
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), light note of plastic. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter, slightly unclean, slightly husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A rather industrial and grainy finish, and otherwise bland. Drain pour.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2005
Pours a beautiful golden hue with a nice healthy head that lasts throughout the duration of the drink. Aroma is typical skunk, albeit a weakened-by-the-elements variety. Flavor is bits of hops mixed with corn and straw, with a weak malt finish. Palate is thin but admirable in its efforts. Unspectacular, but not disgusting.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2005
Bottle. Straw yellow with a thick rocky head. Overly sweet. Notes of burnt plastic, cardboard and very sweet corn come through. Alcohol is a little too upfront. Dirty, sweet aftertaste.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Can. Pale straw color with a moderate foamy white head. Really smells like a strong malt liquor, with resin, light petunias, and grain alcohol. Watery and slightly chalky in feel. Flavors of mild malt steeped in rose buds and hexane. They certainly like their alcohol and even when it is not that high its presence is known.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2005 Poured a golden color with a medium white head.. Aromas of malt, skunk and a bit of yeast.. Flavor followed suit with a sweet malty flavor followed up wit a mild yeastines and a bit of alcohol flavor. not bad compared to the other pale lager’s I have sampled.

Ugh, like a more alcoholic, nastier version of the No. 3. Acid, grainy, metallica. Avoid.

Tomorrow morning my wife and I are going to the hospital to have our baby born (induced), our third child. To commemorate that event, I have a bottle of Westy 12 in the fridge. But tonight it’s just a Baltika 7. I think this warmed decently. What I liked most was that it brought out some of the better flavor qualities of Eastern European hops but without the dry, sometimes astringent bitterness that goes with them. Make no mistake: we’re not talking about an "achievement" of brewing here. What it accomplishes, it does it by providing a palate-pleasing sweetness, though there is still a watery vein here. Tonight I thought this was a drinkable swill, though many people would find this to be just regular old swill--including features such as a light yellow color with a lively, starchy, white head, plus a classic wet paper and grass aroma. Still, it is what I call "clean" going down with little that is offensive, while still providing more than many American beers.
