Pours pale yellow with quickly dissipating head. Looks like a typical Pilsner. Smell is sweet and soft. Heavyish body with malty notes and an oily sweetness. Hops are minimal with maltiness and sweetness prevailing- winners in my book! I'm not sure why this rates so low, I find it to be a solid beer overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice creamy head. Good flavor with a nice malty bite to it. Went really good with a chunk of Irish White Cheddar.

Bottle 500ml. Delicious beer. Aromas of honey, bread, a hint of caramel, and alcohol. Taste is sweet, with long length. Palate is silky, almost creamy, with a medium body. Dark yellow, with a frothy head.

This beer is very strong with an alcoholy taste and palate which is actually a preference of mine. I got the impression that this strong beer was heavily geared towards the Russian palatte and that they would appreciate its strong vodka overtones. I liked it alot. It was light brown with an average head and a strong alcohol with good beer flavorings.

Baltika 9 has a medium, white head and a hazy, yellow-gold appearance, with lots of streaming bubbles and little-to-no lacing. Aroma is of sweet malt and white bread. Taste is of grain husk, barley, bread, a touch of hop bitterness, and then, in mid sip, a rush of alcohol that stays with the drinker. One also picks up a lemony aspect with this. Mouthfeel is medium, and Baltika 9 finishes heavy and somewhat crisp. Drinkability is not high; it’s a sipper. Overall, this is a very good and interesting beer. RJT

Pours light amber. Aroma of malt and palate follows the same. Caramel and crystal malts dominate. Still at 8.5 % but yet a nice malty sweet finish. Some people really down this beer but I think its great

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2015 Sweet malty nose, bread, roasty, bit yeasty, honey, grass, herbs, clove; clear light golden, frothy touch of off-white head, reduces to thin layer that remains all the way, nice lacing; full mild bitterness in combination with light malty sweetness and spicy undertones; full body, thick texture, good carbonation; finish at first dry mild bitterness, followed by slightly sweet roasted maltiness, some alcohol. Well-balanced beer, I like it.

superspak (4300) - Michigan, USA - OCT 1, 2014
500 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 12/6/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear bright golden color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of pear, apple, white grape, cracker, bread, honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Okay aromas with decent balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and fruity yeast ester notes; with solid strength. A bit too fruity/estery on the nose. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Nice balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately crisp, and slightly slick/sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is a pretty solid pale lager style. Good balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and fruity yeast ester flavors; and smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.
