Aroma is funky, cardboard, skunky, corn, slight lemon I guess. Appearance is darker golden, off white head, mostly clear. Taste is corn, cereal, grain, slight citrus, malty, metallic, earthy hops, with that horrible macro lager finish. Mouthfeel is light body, light crisp carbonation, corn and metallic earthy hops aftertaste. Overall, the initial flavor is fine but the end just tastes like a Budweiser, which makes it very unpleasant.

Can from Beers of the World into a pint. Lots of hay malts, no hop bitterness that I noticed.

Розлив МПК. Светло-с цвет. Неплоха& пена. Очень слабый аромат благоро& хмеля и солода. Кислинк& во вкусе. Немного солода в послевк& Перебор по карбо. Для Евролаг& то, что надо: чисто, ровно. Похоже на Стелла Артуа.

hauxe (672) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2016
Bottle from Inna. Pours gold into the glass with a sudsy white head that soon collapses. Aroma is sweet corn with a light skunk at the outset. Taste lemony with metallic notes. Finish is short, dry, with no real bitterness. Overall very thin and one dimensional. You could be generous and call it refreshing. Once is enough though.

deletraz (27) - Lappeenranta, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2016
0.5 l can. Pale golden, light head. Light body, flavour of some citrus, maybe some herbal stuff in there as well. Nothing much in the way of flavour, bitterness, aroma or anything really. Basic lager.

beer-yum (1616) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 8, 2016
Big grassy aroma in a pale straw pour. Mild fruity body is sustained through to the finish - which is lacking any bitterness to match. Different from the local mass market lagers - but no better for it.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2016 From a 2 l pet bottle labeled " Сбемпое " which seems to simply represent an export version of this beer, so although I am not one hundred per cent certain it is the same beer and an internet search did not reveal anything, Ill add my rating under this entry. Lightly lacing, moussy, snow white, stable head, deep old gold colour, a tad darker than usual for a pale lager, and slightly hazy (which in this case was probably just chill haze). Aroma of damp kitchen towels, wet paper, sugar corn, unripe green melon, breakfast cereals, moldy bread and a sulfuric DTMS touch (burning rubber). Neutral onset, minerally accents here and there, bland corn sweetishness (cornflakes), smooth and thin, lightly oily body, grainy sweet and then nothing else happens: practically no hops are detectable, so the finish does not add bitterness, and lacks body. Only a light metallic effect lingers. Thin, bland, industrial, cheap pale lager, like there are too many in this world.

Roger Wilco in Pennsauken, NJ was out of Baltika 6. While searching the other Eastern Europeans beers came upon Obolon for two bucks in a half liter embossed bottle. Palest Lager, wisp of lemon aroma, corn, grass, and overall clean non-flavorful beer . Adequate thirst quencher while mopping a basement.
