From a twenty-four ouncer purchased at "Jungle Jim’s" in Ohio - it’s a good brew, with graininess present... ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUN 30, 2017
Poured from a 16 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear light golden color with a small white head. The aroma is faint grass. The taste is fairly watery with a large alcohol bite.

Bottle shared by robert at SL. I hope this is the right beer.... I see some terrible scores and I thought this was a nice lager from mother russia. Almost clear yellow in color. Nice head that stuck around. Taste is very clean and crisp. Reminded me of a german lager because of its soft water. Light in texture easy to drink. I actually enjoyed this. Thanks Roberto! wlajwl (7005) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Aroma is very grainy and mildly fruity. The flavor is similar to the aroma, with an almost tobacco quality to it and a mild alcohol bite to it. This brewery has been surprising, all of their brews, including this have been pretty decent. beeracoon (511) - - NOV 18, 2012
Medium white head. Clear golden color. Spicy aroma. Caramel taste with a full roasty palate. Good one.

Pours pale yellow with quickly dissipating head. Looks like a typical Pilsner. Smell is sweet and soft. Heavyish body with malty notes and an oily sweetness. Hops are minimal with maltiness and sweetness prevailing- winners in my book! I'm not sure why this rates so low, I find it to be a solid beer overall.

From a bottle labeled Baltika Grade 9 Extra Lager... 8.0% abv. I’m betting this is a fairly fresh batch. Pours clear gold with head and lace. Aroma of light malts, honey, grains. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of light malts, amber malt, slight cereal, sugar, minerals, light hops. Overall flavorful, easy drinking, a tad sweet but nevertheless tasty and decent for the style of strong pale lager. Guinnessman (102) - VACAVILLE, California, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Nice creamy head. Good flavor with a nice malty bite to it. Went really good with a chunk of Irish White Cheddar. davidm (2081) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Bottle 500ml. Delicious beer. Aromas of honey, bread, a hint of caramel, and alcohol. Taste is sweet, with long length. Palate is silky, almost creamy, with a medium body. Dark yellow, with a frothy head. Chel (32) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2011
This beer is very strong with an alcoholy taste and palate which is actually a preference of mine. I got the impression that this strong beer was heavily geared towards the Russian palatte and that they would appreciate its strong vodka overtones. I liked it alot. It was light brown with an average head and a strong alcohol with good beer flavorings.
