What is everyones problem with this beer? Yes it has an AC of 8%. So dont down it like you would an American light beer. I found that it had a very enjoyable taste as I swirled it around in my mouth before letting it slide down my throat. I slowly drank a bottle while watching the first period of a hockey game. When I was finished I could tell that it was stronger than most, but it is to be enjoyed, not swilled.

Clear yellow with decent head. Aroma of sweet malt. Tastes the same, little alcohol, dirty finish.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2017 Aroma suave pero agradable. Apariencia plida amarillenta con fina capa de espuma blanca que desaparece a los minutos despus de servirla. Sabor medio cuerpo. Bebida en vaso a partir de botella de 500 ml.

The reason why this beer gets so many bad reviews is that it does not age well in the bottle or the can. If you travel to Russia, especially Saint Petersburg where it is brewed, and have a fresh bottle, it is an excellent beer. Yes, it is high in alcohol, but it doesnt taste boozy. It is well balanced with good malt and yeast ratios and just the right amount of hops. If you are looking at inventory thats old, just skip it. This beer is indeed terrible after it has sat on a shelf for months.

Bottle from WB Stores, West Bromwich. Echoes of Russians drinking bubble bath; not a conducive image for happy Xmas drinking. Initially this tastes a little limp. Luckily, the strong streak of sickly anti-freeze booze arrives and saves the day. Average for the genre.

Been a while since I had this one, but memorable enough. It tastes like it was transferred to the bottle from a can that was already partially dissolved from contact with the Baltika.

Fairly smooth Euro malt liquor/strong beer. Alcohol predominant but good effervescence without being overcarbed or totally undrinkable.

Aukedebier (21) - KAUTTUA, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2016
Bought from local liquor store in a 500ml bottle. Appearance: poors pale golden with a thin, white head that quickly melting away. Nose: boozy, some malts and sweets. Taste: quite sweet and malty. Not so great hop. Notice the alcohol immidiatly. Tastes a bit like a cheap lager with a shot of vodka in it. Nice try..
