JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2005 Bottle. Golden colour. Nice malt taste, good hop aroma, crisp and thirst quenching. An above average lager.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2004
Golden coloured. Light aroma with malty notes. Sweet and slightly fruity flavour.

Eructoblaster (4266) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 17, 2004
Pale gold body with quick fading bubbly head. Average malty aroma with some fresh herbal hints. Taste is refreshing. Bready and hoppy flavors are followed by a short bitter final. As for the other baltic macro lagers, it is boring but quite drinkable.

Pours a yellow with a huge head. Aroma is very metalic. Flavor is bland and tasteless. Can be found all over Russia. I met a group of Russians in Poland after i had been to Russia. They asked me what beer i had tried in Russia, I replied Baltika. They all looked at each other and told me Baltika is crap.

Bottle. After walking all day, i picked this up and Tesco, and sat down and drank it in front of the football (Czeck Republic v Denmark), to be honest it did the trick, this was pretty bland and all that, but innofensive.

invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Bottle in Tomsk (Siberia). Nothing very special here. Below average pilsner that you don’t have to get too far out of your way to find. 24 ounces for less than a dollar here makes this beer tastes better hehe.

sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 14, 2004
(Bottled) Very pale yellow color with a medium, foamy head. Practically no aroma, maybe a hint of hops. Sweetish lemon flavor with some malt and little hops. Quite creamy and soft, light-bodied, sugary palate with medium carbonation. A quite tasteless and boring, but surprisingly creamy (or maybe foamy is the word) pale lager. More enjoyable than Saku Originaal.

DanielBrown (4520) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2004
Bottle at the Jam House, Birmingham. Awful, appalling beer. Thin, sickly sweet, no bitterness and a lingering murky mush taste. Damnful beer, even amongst macro Lagers, and a waste of my time and money.

3.1
Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Light straw color,small white head that had a decent hangtime then faded to a small lace.Sweet malt and lemony aroma with a slight amount of hops thrown in.Lightly sweet taste with a light malt and hops with a nice lemony side,there is also a slight metallic taste upfront but it fades quickly.Not a bad brew at all in fact it pretty decent,much better then the #9 i just had,more then worth trying again.

Draft. Your standard issue beer for the proletariat. On my second sampling, I find some improvements from what I had originally written, though. Somewhat light in appearance, but still a pleasing gold, with a thin lagery head. The sugary taste I had on my first sample was absent the second time around, and there was a noticable hop balance; just to counteract the malt, with no eaxtra bitterness to spare. This is the most commonly available beer in St. Pete, and the brand that is most active in advertising and sponsorships. You can usually find a portable Baltika stand in front of most railroad stations and several trolley stops, with its blue and white identifiers.
