courtesy of Laurent Mousson - clear and pale golden-yellow colour with a chaotic white foam; aroma of grilled almonds and solvant, some hints of pear too; thick and very sweet, full-bodied, long malty sweetish finish with fruity and alcoholic notes - awful

It’s golden with a white head and the aroma has notes of malt, flower and spicy alcohol. The flavor is sweet with clear notes of alcohol (warming) and malt and light flower. The alcohol is a bit too dominating IMO.

Finnally I am done rating these sorry Baltika beers. My tour of 1-9 wasn’t all that much fun. I kept waiting for a few to be decent . Only one really was. This one is golden and has a white head. Grainy, malty and sweet. Same flavor proflie....shocker. Move along.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Tasted from a 500 mL bottle purchased in Aurora, Colorado. Very light pale yellow appearance with a weak white head. Sweet Pils aroma that’s slightly skunky with some alcoholic notes. Pretty bland pale malty flavor, though the higher alcohol content isn’t obvious. Skunky aftertaste.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle from Market Street Wine Shop Downtown Charlottesville. Very light and pale orangish yellow with a huge head, but little lacing or retention. Bitter, citrus and grassy aroma. This beer is freaking sweet... high fructose corn syrup kinda sweet. I guess the maltose syrup listed in the ingredients on the bottle is responsible for that. Cloying and overwhelming. Bleh.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Crystal clear, straw-colored lager with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. Excellent, weeping lacework.
Floral notes, mocha notes (oddly enough) and hay in the nose. Fairly bland, like most pale lagers, however, there is plenty of alcohol in the flavor as well as some good, pale malts. Well-balanced by the alcohol and hops. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, dry, alcoholic finish. Much better than expected!

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ home, thanks to a colleague. Clear golden color, decent sized white head that diminishes rapidly. Smell malts, some sweetness and believe it or not peanuts! Taste isn’t much better: malts, sweet, and again peanut-flavors. That does not belong in a beer. Fizzy carbonation, thin texture, alcohol clearly present, low body.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden color with a white head. The taste is a sweet earthy malty body with a rather smooth finish.

500mL at Russia House. Whoa whoa whoa- disgusting. Massive acetone, fusel alcohol, compost/trash, adjuncts, chemicals, some old/cheap sherry. Ultra sweet, cloying all the way. Overly carbonated. So gross.
