2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Out of a 750ml can, 750ml CAN! How cool is that?
Pours golden with a wispy white head & some lacing on the glass . 3
The aroma is grainy and husky, sweet... Neither unpleasant nor appealing. 5
The flavor is surprisingly clean & only lightly sweet. It’s got a light floral hop character & a nice low level of bitterness. 6
Perhaps my favorite pale lager from Baltika.
Extra special thanks to Marko for letting me know what beer I even had here.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Ice-bocked in the freezer. 500 ml. clear bottle sampled @ home. Procured from Anna Maria. Bottled on 23.09.2013. Golden hay, unsurprisingly almost no white head. Sweet corn syrup nose, adjunct notes are very limited because this is ice-cold (almost literary), chemical applesauce, white sugar and artificial sweetener sweet. Taste is sweet apple, adjuncts (limited still due to cold & process), lots of corn syrup, chemical applesauce, artificial sweeteners, off-notes are limited due to the cold & process. Touch thicker corn syrup feel, probably from the ice-bocking. Regular pale lager fare, improved slightly by the process & how very cold, I drank this.

50cl bottle. Well balanced lager. Pours light amber, with frothy head. Medium bitter, lightly sweet. Malty finish. One bottle is enough. It is not bad, but I do not want to have another bottle. Serve this beer below 6degC.

1/19/14. Giant oil can with big thanks to Aurelius! Clear golden pour with a small fizzy white head. Apple and metal on the aroma, mildly doughy. Bitter metal and apple on the flavor. Not too offensive, some hay and grass. Meh.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ehh...aroma somewhat stale dirty-sock frat hop, but taste is surprisingly smooth, decent carbonation,and balanced fruity/malty finish (with a touch too much of the latter)

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bronze and tan oilcan. Clear, gold, big white head. Malty, powdery lager aroma - slightly sweet and tangy. Dry, starchy, a bit tangy, lightly metallic hopping, hominy flavors. Maybe a little floral in the finish, which is modestly bitter and a little tongue-curling. New Leaf Market.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - bad-ass looking 750 ml can. Medium golden pour, pillowy snow white head, bit of light lacing. Aroma has some corniness to it with a hint of grassiness. Typical Eastern European lager saaz hop induced flavor, a hint of corn, some grassiness. Mouhtheel has a decent crispness. Not half bad when served freezing cold.
