Looks pretty much like an ordinary lager but the sweet and alcoholic aroma/flavour reveals the style. Surprisingly thick mouthfeel but the finish lacks hops and is too sweet. As the beer warms, the grain becomes more apparent; it should definitely be served cold!

Sure looks pretty. Straw yellow with a nice head and a really nice lace. Smells...weird, as if there's something wrong with it. There's some fruit esters but other than that it's malt. And that weird scent. Tastes... Wait, this is supposed to be a lager? WTF? Serious fruit esters but they're just not right. It does hide the alcohol. Mouthfeel is much thicker than I was expecting. Drinkability? Pass. I'll take the other Baltikas first, thanks.

How funny -- I go all this time without rating a malt liquor, and the first one I happen to try isn't one of the Americans, but a Russian one. Crystal clear straw body with large white foam. Aroma is grainy, sweet, alcohol, light herbal. Taste is medium sweet, grainy, finishing alcohol and light herbal. Undercarbonated mouthfeel, fairly light body for 8%.

This wasn't terrible. In fact, for 8% it was pretty drinkable. For a malt liquor, it was also pretty drinkable. But not that drinkable.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2004 Bottle. Very light looking beer with a cheap pilsner smell to it. There’s a malty sweetness with a strong alcohol taste which finishes with just enough hops (slightly bitter aftertaste). It’s smooth for the first few sips and not as bad as people make it out to be, but that doesn’t mean I’ll get it again..

Has a light yellow color with some carbonation and a hop smell. Taste is somewhat acidic and has a alcohol flavor. Overall a strong brew that I didn't like too much.

"Adjuncty" sweet with an alcohol bite from the middle to the finish. Gets worse as it warms.

Pale golden. Fruity/Sourish aroma and flavor. Not so much alcohol presence...
