Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Big 51 oz brown plastic bottle to rein in the new year. Creamed corn, vegetal, with apple juice notes. Rough and husky. A beer that means business, knowing that business is dirty.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Light caramel color, moderate but fading head development. Lightly sweet, doughy aroma, also with quite a soy sauce note. Syrupy sweet flavor, light herbal-spicy hops, more soy sauce. Rather unpleasantly present ethanol. Slight edgy bitterness at the finish. Not majorly flawed, but not in any manner enjoyable.

0,5 l bottle. Golden ins the glass, small white head. Parfumed sweetness on the nose. Taste is sweet like tasteless cherry, strange, alcoholic.

caesar (5799) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2003
Pffff. Clear yellow color. Head is initially large, but diminished within a couple of seconds to completely nothing. Aroma is made of hops, straw, hay, what is it horseblanket? Smells like filthy horses. No alcoholic aroma though. Taste is quite pilsener like, bad pilsener i must say. Palate becomes more alcoholic, dry and bitter. It can avoid the drain pour, but only by a small fraction...

Just some sweetness, nothing else to remark; would be better with improved hop character.

SilkTork (5407) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2003
Bottle. Sweet, medium body. Lingering sweetness. Some lemon. A bit like lemonade toward the finish. Creamy and buttery at the start.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2003
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.

freekyp (1634) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 10, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2010 Deep golden with a sweetness in aroma and flavor. Soda-like carbonation. Malty, but sickly sweet.

Cobra (1100) - - DEC 11, 2004
Big brown bottle. No freshness date seen anywhere. Poured out a clear, piss yellow color, with a frothy white head. Aromas are of dish soap, and cheap adjunct grains. Tastes terrible. Thin body, soapy aftertaste, just plain foul. I couldn’t even choke down more than a 1/10th of a bottle. An absolute drain pour.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 30, 2005
clear yellow w/ a thick frothy white head smells extremly bad skunky w/ a medium body and good carbonation tastes very grainy and of alcohol fairly non invasiive.. but the stench overwelms the flavor... still better than most of the malt liquors tonight
