Crystal clear golden yellow with a fine but small head. Aroma is light caramel with a touch of spice and a little breadiness. Very, very subtle diacetyl / butter which is actually very good at this level. Really full bodied for this style, presumably from the maltose which for me makes it great. Gives it a real full character which actually works very well against the bakcdrop of very light malt, subtle butter and spice. Whilst the flavour has a sense of sweetness the finish is still very crisp and dry. There are a lot of low scores being given to this beer and I cant understand that. These people must be missing something because this is an excellent lager indeed. Clean, easy, crisp and yet still so characterful. Possibly nay probably my favourite lager.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2004 Another beer received from my friend from Russia. This ranks among the best lagers I have ever tasted. Pours a rich amber color. A great sweet aroma gives way to a comparativley complex flavor, when considering a lot of other lagers worldwide. Great texture, very silky and filling. Goes down increadibly smooth with a very pleasant biting aftertaste. Great stuff!

A very pleasant pale lager. Smooth taste, with just enough sweetness to not make it too sweet.

500ml clear bottle into a pint glass. Pours a crystal clear medium gold with a half finger head. Tons of carbonation bubbles rising through the beer help to hold the head for a long time. Really a pretty beer. A very light skunkyness in the aroma but much less than what I was expecting with a clear bottle. Lots of grain and grassy hops and a slight hint of lemon. A nice breadyness in the taste quickly followed by hay and grass from the hops. Bitterness is on the light side and really the taste kind of falls apart about halfway through. The crispness I was expecting just didnt come with the beer finishing up a little bit sweet. Overall, this is very similar to Baltika #3. I havent done a side by side tasting but the similarities are remarkable. This one may be a little less sweet but not much. Really it isnt a bad beer just completely unremarkable. I would pick up again, though.

elmatador00 (519) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 18, 2007
Pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Strong malt taste, like most lagers should be. Finishes dry and thick malty on tongue. Nothing to write home about.

Light beer with light-bitter taste and fruit palate. Good, snow-white foam, stays for 3 minutes. Very light colour. Not bad beer.
