According to Old Chicago this is listed as a pale ale?? Where are the hops? Are there any? One good thing is that the 8% ABV seems well masked. Wheaty taste, somewhat watered down. This is okay, but not what I was expecting at all. Later on I learned this is technically considered to be a malt liquor.

Tasted like cheap beer with lots of alcohol. Theres no sense in giving this a decent review. Its just like every other Euro lager but with lots of alcohol. Tah dah! Thats it. Itll get you wrecked.

This beer pours a golden yellow with a 1 inch thick head that dissapates quickly. light hoppy aroma, just like a standard lager. taste has a small hint of hops. This beer is pretty good for a lager, but I am not much of a lager fan. Cheers!

Canned. Yellowish golden colour, small white head. Skunked hops and caramellish malt in aroma. Fruit, caramellish malt and weak hops in flavour. Sticky palate and unbalanced. Alcohol is wellhidden until it gets closer to room temperature.

Provides a solid body and strong flavor to mask that 8%, but otherwise nothing too spectacular. Still, having only spent $1.30 or so on it, I couldnt complain. Not a bad one to have if you arent looking for anything revolutionary.

09.11.05 500ml bottle. Watching Ray "Murderer" Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens on sunday night football seems like the perfect occasion to dig on some Baltic malt likka! Pale gold pour under a thin veil of lacing white foam. Aroma is slightly vanilla and bookstore with hints of bandage. Wow, its really sweet and bready with some berry-like fruitiness and honey-coated cereal. Amazingly the 8% is almost completely hidden until the stuff hits about 60 degrees (F) or more. Slick and coating.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - AUG 27, 2005
Bottle. Pours a rich brown/gold. Aroma is stagnant, but slightly sweet. Flavor is buttery hops and malt. Finish lingers. Not a bad beer, but one is enough.

This grew out of a partnership between Efes and Baltika. So this is similar to Efes Extra, a very good strong lager. Pours pale yellow like a good pils. Great foamy white head, fades slowly with some nice lace. Aromas of alcohol, apple, yeast. Tastes of apple, light hops, sweet fruit and malt. Good all-around lager (by the way, its bottom fermented). Id have it for a daily drinker -- beats hell out of Bud and Miller.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2005 Clear, pale green-straw body with a sudsy white head. Medium sweet with notes of corn, honey, and melon. Sweet flavor with some grainy spice and fairly subtle alcohol. Not too bad, I would happily swig this from a paper bag while sitting on a curb, if I could only afford this and nothing better than a curb to sit on.
