Clear tanned golden beer with small white head. The malt aromas are more evident, some grain, syrup, corn notes are felt. The taste has a lot of malt flavors, but also the alcohol make is sweet and maybe because of that the hops donít make a significant change at the end.

Took a flyer on this bottle from BevMo. Slightly hoppy, malty aroma. Poured a golden yellow with a fizzy head that didnít last long. The high alcohol content overpowered the sweetness, carmel, and grainy notes. Just didnít work for me.

75 oz bottle. Pours dark and watery with a thin head. Aroma of wet dog. Flavor follows aroma with added sweetness and overpowering alcohol. This makes me as well as my friends cringe. Avoid this stuff.

This was the first russian beer i drink, golden color, grain aroma, sweet flavour, not enough strong for a strong lager.

Aroma of honey and corn syrup. Pours clear gold with a decent soapy white head that leaves lacing. Flavor is syrupy sweet, not enough balance, very grainy and sweet. Has a nice alcohol kick, some Russian hooch for your gullet. Itís better than most American macros, at least itís neither a dirty fermentation nor dominated by adjunct grains. Cloyingly sweet, like a corn syrup bomb, donít think I will repeat.

Poured a nasty yellow so light i really contemplated pouring it out immediately. It looks identical to the pee i took minutes ago, albeit less cloudy. Not much to smell. Not bad for a malt liqour. thatís like saying, it wasnít the worst diahrea iíve had. i hate going to the store and "finding" something and thinking "extra lager" is kinda like an imperial lager - i know that doesnít exist, but SHIT, neither should the #9 Baltika. At least iím gonna get drunk!

Usually beers have ratings this low because theyíre virtually tasteless. Thatís not the case with this beer. There is plenty of complexity here: hay, banana, pear, nice bitterness. The aroma is actually pretty decent, with good classic lager notes. The problem is this beer is heavy as hell--both in sweetness and alcohol--and totally unbalanced. Lagers should be refreshing. If I want 8% alcohol I will drink a complex Belgian ale. This beer doesnít work for me.

A plesent surprise for the price. Pours sparkling medium yellow. Complex aroma, cookies, flowers, with leather and apple esters. Flavor starts balanced twards sweet, nice malt flavor, apple overtones, and peppery. Light to medium bodied, watery and creamy, softly carbonated.
