2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
sweet malts, murky dough, bready in a bad way... no hops? taste is far to carbs are too light to hide anything and the finish is horribly thicky sweetish and old...

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The strongest beer I’ve tasted so far, 8%. Its alcoholic aroma and taste changes the general features of this beer pretty much. I don’t know yet if most of strong beers are the same. But sadly, I don’t like that.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
500ml bottle from hypermarket in St. Petersburg, clear gold colour, medium rocky head. Somewhat spicy aroma of grain, booze and fruit and a hint of floral hops. Taste is sweetish boozy, abrupt finish, medium body (quite a feat with such a strength). The worst one I’ve tried from Baltika thus far, probably finisheable with enough dried fish.

Couleur dorée, peu de mousse. Arome très leger. Gout leger de caramel et d’alcool. Pas de fin de bouche. Juste une pale forte.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours a clear golden yellow, decent white head. Aromas of cooked corn, honey and straw. Tastes quite sweet, but with a light bitterness that just about stops it being cloying. Better than expected!

I like many of the Baltika line but this one left a bad aftertaste. I’ll try it again another time.
