What is everyones problem with this beer? Yes it has an AC of 8%. So don’t down it like you would an American light beer. I found that it had a very enjoyable taste as I swirled it around in my mouth before letting it slide down my throat. I slowly drank a bottle while watching the first period of a hockey game. When I was finished I could tell that it was stronger than most, but it is to be enjoyed, not swilled.

Rated based on notes taken 24 Feb 2012 -- Whenever I used to buy this beer it was usually because you got a lot of "bang for your buck". The ABV to price was very nice. That being said I enjoy this beer, clean, easy drinking, good malt.

Bottle 0,5 l, PiwoCzas, Wrocław, Poland.
Złote piwo z puszystą pianą na dwa palce i słodowym aromatem. W smaku zdecydowanie słodowe z minimalnie goryczkowym, rozgrzewającym finiszem.

You must be kidding me. This is my 750th rating and I am drinking Baltika. Is this some kind of sick joke?
OK, I’ll make the best of this. Pale gold with no head. Sweet malt nose. Metallic malt flavor with obvious alcohol burn when swallowed. Ugh, why would anybody purchase this. My son did because he likes to try beers from impoverished totalitarian rudimentary monopolistic /dictatorships! Avoid this at all costs.

Bottle. A hellish, boozy, over-sweet let down. Excellent for the sole purpose of getting drunk fast.

The nose is very mild the clarity is excellent and I enjoyed the malty overtones. But it's very hops forward and too bitter for my palate

500ml can from Walmart, Xiamen. Pours golden with a rapidly disappearing head. Malty aroma, sweet malt finish. Plenty of body. All this has going for it is the alcohol.

Can. Pale yellow with small foamy white head, crisp malt aroma, sweetish taste with doughy flavor, low carbonation, abrupt finish with slight metallic aftertaste. Nothing too remarkable about this beer,

Flaska från Alko, Finland.
Klar gyllengul vätska med vitt skum.
Doftat brödigt, blommigt och lite jäst.
Ganska klassisk lagersmak men något sötare, varför har de sirap i?
Ja ja, nu har man bockat av Ryssland iaf...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
