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.

Bottle. Sweet, medium body. Lingering sweetness. Some lemon. A bit like lemonade toward the finish. Creamy and buttery at the start.

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.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2010 Deep golden with a sweetness in aroma and flavor. Soda-like carbonation. Malty, but sickly sweet.

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.

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

Aroma: Skunk. Appearance: Very golden urine. Nice head with good lacing. Palate was dry yet lively. Flavor reminds me of Special Export. A bit skunky. Grainy. Hint of astringent.

(500 ml bottle: $1.99 at Wine Time in La Jolla, CA) Pale straw in color with a fair amount of haziness, but very few carbonation bubbles rising through the beer. The snow white, foamy head pours to over an inch and gradually settles to about half that after several minutes. Unfortunately, that’s the highlight with this beer. The nose is grainy, smelly, and alcoholic, like a bad, boozy beer. Sweet, apply, and alcoholic with a really nasty grainy flavor, and wow, the aftertaste is bitter and very alcoholic. Yuck, this is awful. Light bodied, but with a harshness like hard liquor. Uhh, this is just horrible, now let me carefully slide this lighter fluid drain pour past my gas stove without setting the place on fire. Please, someone give me a Budweiser to clean my palate!

Not too good. Pale yellow with a small white head. Alcohol was very present in the aroma and flavor. I knew I was trying a malt liquor so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.
