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.

Clear, pale yellow body, fizzy and active carbonation, and an inch thick head combine to form an attractive looking lager. The larger than average size of 500 ml. necessitated poring into an imperial pint glass, which also aided in the appearance. Aroma was lemony, perfumey, alcoholic, and slightly vegetal, but overall not a bad smell for the style. Taste was rather simplistic due to the excessively sweet and underattenuated body. The hops were present, and evident, but not in a quantity sufficient to offset the sweetness. Unlike the domestic malt liquors, I could not detect any harsh adjunct flavors. There was a nice lemon twist sourness imparted by the clean lager yeast strain. Alcohol was not too obtrusive either. The bottle had a best before date of 4 September 05, so I guess the ageing on the shelves of Greens did this beer some good. Either that, or I just like this one better than most of you.

Light golden color with an initially large white head. Aroma is corn, malt and alcohol. Flavor is more of the same. Body is not bad. OK for what it is.

Ack! Ptooooie! How the f**k did I get the idea that there was something about Baltika that sounded good? Russian alcopop as far as Im concerned. Malt likksky. Oily feeling and alcohol presntin like a mofo. A rare beer that I did not care to finish - and Ive had some bad ones. In all due respect, it wasnt quyitw as bad as Ive described and I have had far worse, but this one just created its own foul mood in my mouth.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2005
Pours gold with a large head and some effervescence. Aroma of light citrusy hops, corn, and grains. Sweet and corny flavor. A little alcohol in the finish and a nasty bitter aftertaste. Better than I expected from a malt liquor, but not good by any means.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Bottle. Nose is storng of dust, cardboard, and adjuncts. The taste is very strong-sweet, cereal, syrupy, black pepper, alcohol, and fruity esters. After you get past the first sip and the palate gets adjusted, this is not too bad. It is much to sweet really enjoy or consider drinking the entire bottle.

BillyM (151) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Definitely a bold bitter taste. Crisp & bitter, slight citrus note - not a whole lot else to speak of. Ill give it a point or two for the high ABV at a low price.

Arayaga2 (2170) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Nice, malty, and bready and citrusy sweet without cloying. This product is robust in flavor and quite drinkable for a commodity beer. $1.79/22oz

TChrome (1456) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2005
Pours a pale golden color with a whipped egg white head that mostly dissipates, though it does leave a bit of lacing on the glass. Not much aroma, bit of sweet corn, I suppose. Flavor was way too corn syrupy for me. I think I would prefer to get hammered on Mickeys than this.

Terminus (3634) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 21, 2005
Sweet aroma and a very thin white head. Alcohol and grain taste. Stronger than expected, but not too strong. Somewhere in between a pale ale and a lager.Citrus hint at the end and finishes smooth. Good with food.
