2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slightly hazy, golden beer poured from a 16.9 oz brown bottle, producing a modest and short-lived, sudsy white head. Aroma: light malt and hops with a slight skunkiness and a hint of honey. Tastes slightly sweet and floral, with a low level of hops compared to the malt. However, the malt dominates at the start, but the hops come out on top in the finish. Rather light and slightly watery body; carbonation is medium (very good); smooth; semi-dry.
Overall: this beer is quite drinkable; I found this to be much better than Baltica’s #2 lager.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Brown half litre bottle obtained from a Russian shop in Antwerp (Belgium). Best before 15th Oct 2010, drank 26th July 2010.
Poured (three times) into one of my small Veltins Pilsner glasses.
The beer is a mid-range pilsner/helles/lager golden yellow, the regular pure white foaming head appeared on each pour. Bright, clear and what you’d expect from a Helles Bier.
The aroma was fairly sweet, and floral (sweetpea?).
The initial taste was also on the sweet side, however a tinny/metallic taste came along in the aftertaste.
The beer was more enjoyable when I was hot and the beer cold, but as I cooled and the beer warmed, my mood changed and I had trouble with the final sips.
