UPDATED: JUN 5, 2015 Sweet malty nose, bread, roasty, bit yeasty, honey, grass, herbs, clove; clear light golden, frothy touch of off-white head, reduces to thin layer that remains all the way, nice lacing; full mild bitterness in combination with light malty sweetness and spicy undertones; full body, thick texture, good carbonation; finish at first dry mild bitterness, followed by slightly sweet roasted maltiness, some alcohol. Well-balanced beer, I like it.

500 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 12/6/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear bright golden color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of pear, apple, white grape, cracker, bread, honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Okay aromas with decent balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and fruity yeast ester notes; with solid strength. A bit too fruity/estery on the nose. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Nice balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately crisp, and slightly slick/sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is a pretty solid pale lager style. Good balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and fruity yeast ester flavors; and smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

Smells like champagne, with pears! Initial taste is devoid,like a bad beer, but then the flavoring kicks in. The alcohol gives it a faint wine/barleywine taste. Overall, though, it cant escape being a malt liqour...high alcohol with little complexity.

The aroma is butter and lemons. The flavor is absent of alcohol and corn which is indeed odd for the style. Its kind of citrusy with some lemons present. Extremely smooth and maybe the best malt likka Ive had to date.

From a 1pt. 9oz. brown bottle with a best before on the front label, 31/05/06. Made an impressive appearance, poured an clear pale straw golden with a foamy, billowing white head that slowly settle into a clingy, foamy, thin pancake-like lacing, good carbonation. Had a grainy alcohol nose with some floral hoppiness and some faint grassiness. A crisp, biting coarse mouth feel, above average drinkability. Lager husky grainy and lemon grass hoppy taste with a little floral hoppiness, a mild bitterness, some alcohol warmth on the tongue and a crisp, sweet grainy malty finish. I admit, I like the lagers Ive had from Baltika, they are not world beaters, but they are decent, affordable lagers, well worth trying.

Not sure if Im rating the same beer as everyone else. This one has a red label, and says "#9 Strong Lager". Since I found no others to match. Ill rate this. I was actually impressed with this beer, much more so than the Baltika #6 Porter. The flavor, while not real recognizable, was smooth and left a good finish. If this really is the same beer, it was a far cry above the Schlitz (Bull) Malt Liquor I drank as a kid, and I must say I actually enjoyed this beer.

A plesent surprise for the price. Pours sparkling medium yellow. Complex aroma, cookies, flowers, with leather and apple esters. Flavor starts balanced twards sweet, nice malt flavor, apple overtones, and peppery. Light to medium bodied, watery and creamy, softly carbonated.
