16.9 oz bottle, labeled Baltika 9 Extra Lager, bottled on 020306, best by 020307. Oops - a bit past the "best by" date. Judging by my previous experience with Baltika beers, it wonít matter much, but we shall see. Honey gold with a big bubbly white head that descends rapidly. Corny grain nose, lightly sweet yet astringent, a bit of a chemically scent that I have found common to this brand. Sweet graininess with a distinct alcohol flavor. Slick maltiness. Ugh. Not good. I see from other ratings this used to be listed as a malt likka - seems more appropriate. Boozy, rough and useless, unless alcohol delivery is the only goal.

Thanks to ghawener. Drank it in El Flor. Same as No.7. Can you say maize!! Brewed with many adjuncts which gives it the maize aroma and taste. Skunky.

I have been led to understand this is one of the most popular beers in Russia. I think this beer explains nicely why the Russians drink vodka. incredibly odd nose, with an undercurrent I canít place but that is highly unpleasant; taste is heavy, foul, and metallic. The color is acceptable, but the head looked -- and moved -- like pudding, mousse, or scrambled eggs. In short, YECH.

51 oz plastic bottle. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is sweetish malts, apple hints, and after a bit I get a definite gym sock aroma. Flavor is pretty much the same, with sweet malts, apple, some alcohol and higher alcohols, and gym sock, but not as much as in the aroma.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2010 Clear gold with a small white head. Chemical smell and taste. I never tried paint thiner but this might be close. Could not finish.

Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2010 Pours gold with a small head leaving some lacing. Nose show sweet corn and rice with somehow cloying white wine characters. More corn and rice as flavours along with cereal. Stupidly sweet. Noticeable alcohol. Sickening. Carbonation is pretty high. I only got through about a quarter of this bottle, which has never happened before.

50 cL glass bottle. Practically no carbonation and consquently no head (colour is light yellow with a tinge of green). Aroma of wet hay and alchohol; the same components in the flavour together with a taste of soap! Really awful. The bottle I had may not have been properly sealed, but I am not willing to give it another try.
