Another skunky Russian beer. No wonder they all drink Vodka. Christ this was a clear golden brew with an inch of white foam.

Tap at the Leipziger Bierbrse. Clear light golden pour with a lacing, short white head. Smells strongly of pale malts and alcohol. Taste is crisp, sweet, and alcoholic. Mild chalky coating. Medium body with a trace of oil, mild bitterish finish. A little herby medicinalness. To me, this was more of a European Strong Lager than a malt likka... And tsk tsk to all of you giving this a 1 for appearance!

16.9 oz bottle into a Pilsner glass. Pours a light golden color with a small orange tint to it. Thin foamy white head that dissipates quickly and sticks to the sides of the glass. Aroma brings to the nose sugary malt and yeast with a hint of citrus. Flavor mainly consists of corn, grass notes, a tiny bit of bitterness in the hops, and moving into the finish comes the sweet malt we smelled on the aroma. You can taste the 8% ABV at times, but it is not very present. Overall, a decent lager, not very exciting, and not very amazing either. Definitely drinkable.

Bottle: Translucent pale golden, sudsy white head, promptly falls after it is poured, barely any lacing, light carbonation. Grassy nose, but also corny, very corny. Sweetish grassy start, however the corn aspect creeps up quickly. ABV is well hidden. This one has a sweet malt finish, grassy, that to me seems fairly clean. Not bad, boring, but certainly non-offensive. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Not bad, but too much like a souped up BMC to me.

kramer (6293) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2006
500 ml bottle. Pours a pale yellow, clear, with a small thin film of white head and lots of fizzy visible carbonation. Very corny and vegetal aroma, a little alcohol, and some water. Thick and heavy alcohol flavor at first followed by lots of corn and grainy pale malts. Mouthfeel is pretty thick and viscous up front, but fades to a watery and fizzy mess in the finish. This was my least favorite of the Baltika so far. Lots of alcohol, and thats about it.

pretty crappy all around. definitely hoppy, which is to its advantage, but the corn adjuncts are readily accessible. lots of alcohol, little going on. i compared it to fffs dolemite, but to be fair i hardly remember that libation. this was, as a friend mentioned, a lot better than a steel reserve given its abv. but i probably would have had a hard time drinking more than the 6oz i had of it.

Poured a crystal clear pale yellow color with a small head that disappeared quickly. The lacing was very minimal. The aroma was interesting, somewhat sweet and lightly fruited. Flavor was somewhat corn / adjunct flavored with some grassiness and metallic flavors. Honestly, this isnt too far off from the pale lagers, other than the fact that it is high in alcohol content. Mouthfeel is moderate, however.

Sampled at Broudys Beerfest, Jacksonville FL, 3 June 2006. Malt liqour flavor and a good alcohol hit. A little better than most American malt liqours. Sweet and corn and alcohol. At least its drinkable, cant say that for Schlitz Malt Liqour or Colt 45.
