3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is the kind of beer that I REALLY shouldn’t like, but there’s just no helping me sometimes; this tastes just fine to me. Tastes and smells like honey kvass with hops added. It finishes a bit like a bourbon whisky; corny, grainy and a little woody- bracing, but it invites you back in. Nearly amber in color- looks like cheap maple syrup straight from the microwave. This is what I buy when I want to get VERY drunk VERY quickly and not have too much to complain about as far as taste (it’s a little like drinking a loaf of bread, soggy with hard liquor). It warms you up like no other. Gotta be good for that Russian winter.

It has a very pale colour, barely yellow and white soft head. Although this is not an exceptional pilsner it is quite better than otther industrial beers.

At least this one has some flavour to give it some character, unlike the other two I had last night. Still an easy drinker which I guess is a plus at 8%

Light blond in color, heavy in alcohol. Nothing interesting, only one you need man is a cooler. I cannot imagine to drink this beer up to 5 degree Celsium. B@H

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, courtesy of MiP. Pours clear pale golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of malt and yeast, with very faint notes of hops. Sweet flavour of malt and yeast, quickly offset by offensively bitter alcohol notes and some hoppy hints. A massive attack of cardboard tanks (T34?) closes the battle, leaving nothing to salvage. Not my favourite style and definitely not my favourite beer. Despite my Polish origin, I have never understood what it is that makes people east of Eden delight in superboozy concoctions of lager death.

50cl bottle. Clear yellow colour with a thin white head. Malty, caramel and grassy aroma. Soft to average carbonation and light to medium body. Taste is a bit sweet with some metallic notes. Overall, a boring beer but drinkable though.

Butelka 0,5, najbrzydsza jaką widziałem z tego browaru. Trochę niestety daje mi na myśl wojaka albo inne imperial lagery tj. piwa dla alkoholików.
Piwo o słomkowym kolorze, wolno schodzącej pianie jak na lagery, niemniej nie pozostawia śladów na szklance. Zapach trochę ruskiego szampana tj. siarki.
Lekkie nasycenie dwutlenkiem węgla, długi finisz ale polegający na tym że zioniesz wódą, nieprzyjemny.
No cóż, chyba najgorszy z wszystkich dotychczasowych piw Baltika, niemniej żeby zostać szczerym to porównując do polskich koncerniaków dla pijaków, nie jest aż tak źle.

Tasted years ago as Baltika 9 Extra, bottle from a night shop. Medium, snow white head over a clear, pale golden blonde beer. Grainy and corny aroma, soapy, alcoholic; sweetish taste, adjuncts, grainy with a certain sourishness, metallic, bitterish finish more so because of alcohol than because of hops. Alcoholics’ fuel like most Eastern European pale strong lagers, but not even the worst in its style.
