A dark beer produced using caramel and rye malts. This combination of ingredients endows the beer with a harmonious hint of bread flavors and the specific aroma of caramel malt.
The ingredients are water, light caramel and rye malt, maltose syrup and hops. Produced since 1992. 15°
I quite agree with the first rater: this is a very pleasant surprise. It was on sale for a $1.49/16.9 ounce bottle at the local Whole Foods, and I wasn't expecting much. The description on the bottle reads: 'Original Baltika is a brown beer with a harmonious bread smack and caramel malt aroma.' I have no idea what a 'harmonious bread smack' is (though I love the sound of it!), but I can definitely confirm the caramel. This is a wonderfully hearty beer that goes exceptionally well with food.
From Decervecitas. In Bavaria hefe glass. At dinner, with nuggets + turkey steaks + york ham with cheese sandwich. Dunkelweizen wheaty remimiscences. Nice sweetness, good dose of compensating bitterness and amazing feel and drinkability. At level of their #6
