500ml can from Arkhangelsk, by courtesy of Konstantin, for the first superpower beer session in Tårnrommet. Straw-golden body under a fading, foamy top. Momentary smell and taste of dry, fruitlike malt. Tolerable sweet. Light in the mouth. Rather anonymous [Tromsø, 13.01.2209]. beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 19, 2009
Bright golden colour with big firm white head. Sweet malty aroma. Bland flavour, short crisp finish. A Heineken wannabe. Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - DEC 28, 2008
16-9/10-ounce bottle. What can I say? This stuff is as boring as almost every other lager out there. Has the classic euro skunkiness a la Heineken, but little more. Flavor is not that great overall. I recommend passing on this one unless of course you just want it for the sake of rating; Then it will have at least some purpose. demitriustown (1192) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - DEC 24, 2008
16.9 fl oz. Thanks to Art for this one. Aroma has some definite skunk on it. Grainy, grassy, and a bit of a sweetness to the scent. Appearance is golden and clear with a medium sized white head that lingers for a while. Taste is grainy, grassy with a decent amount of lager twang going on. Overall it is about as enjoyable, maybe a little more so, than the other Baltika brews. Cheers That1Guy (2237) - Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Crushed with Jakebra. Hey, fantastic, Heineken has a Russian cousin! Skunked as a mofo. Sabout it.

I liked this one better than Baltika 5 but it had nothing on the porter. This was very watered down and didn’t do much for me. I would have been really mad if this beer wasn’t on sale for $1.99 a bottle. beeerman (5) - , Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2008 does not count
Pint in a bottle. Light and clear yellow colour, very little head, not much of a smell, watery taste. Would not recommend it. tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2008
50 cl can at home - bought in Moscow by my parents. Clear light golden color, disappering white head. Aroma is sweet with grassy malt. Flavor is small amounts of malt, fruity sweetness and hints of bitterness. Thin. SODAK14 (382) - Rapid City, South Dakota, USA - OCT 10, 2008
You know that food that tastes better than it smells? Well this beer smells better than it tastes. I thought I had a real find when I poured this beer. Great aroma, then total disappointment with an almost tasteless beer. Not sure how that could happen but it did.
