UPDATED: JUN 13, 2004 Bottled. Hmm, it’s been a while since I had a malt liquor; think back to winter of ’89, I was hangin’ wit’ my homez, splitting a 40 of St. Ides at the White Castle on 115th... But this is a different time and place, specifically, Russia. Has the same cloying sweetness of a Baltika 3. Yes, I can already feel the alcohol headache coming on. I guess it’s just a shade below an inoffensive beer. Well, I was warned about the beer in Russia, wasn’t I?
Re-Rated, canned. Okay, trying it again, the alcohol warmth is kind of welcoming. There's still a big sugary taste, but for some reason it doesn't bother me as much.

ruigo (1257) - PORTUGAL - DEC 23, 2014
50cl bottle. Clear yellow colour with a thin white head. Malty, caramel and grassy aroma. Soft to average carbonation and light to medium body. Taste is a bit sweet with some metallic notes. Overall, a boring beer but drinkable though.

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.

Arek (205) - Zielona Góra, POLAND - NOV 17, 2014
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.

panaphobic1 (3) - - NOV 3, 2014 does not count
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 -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

GuideDogSaint (483) - Xiamen, CHINA - OCT 15, 2014
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.

trapped (897) - New York City, TURKEY - OCT 6, 2014
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,

MSBrindbergs (438) - Solna, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2014
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... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
