Crisp and refreshing Euro pale lager. Very decent. Closer to a pilsner

Stinky aroma with a moderate skunkiness. Thin and watery texture. Very light non-descript flavor. Overall impression....watery. Would not get again.

16.9 oz. bottle poured into flute
(bottled 4/15/14 in green glass; drank 2/5/15)

L: 100% clear yellow, 1-inch ultra-white head of foam; no stick or lace, very few bubbles; looks flat; slight lacing

S: SKUNK ... just a bit up front then it disappears; very fruity and malty sweet -- bread malt; dust, onion, cilantro, sour grain

T: super fruity -- peach, apricot, almost hint of plum; bread malt ... not bad

F: light but full with carbonation ... but the more I drink it, the more I feel a bit weak

O: not that bad ... the sunlight/UV/whatever light has skunked it just a bit, but it's still super fruity for an overall smaller flavor/aroma profile

This is very much what I expected and hoped for. Baltika 7 is on par with most of the Euro lagers I've tried. There is less skunk in the nose, but the same notable malt-hop pairing I enjoy in the other "green bottle" lagers. It has a clean, smooth finish with an enjoyable light hop aftertaste. This would pair nicely with homemade borscht!

Review: Bottle of Baltika 7 Eksportnoe (Export) 5.4%ABV
Baltika 7 Eksportnoe, a handful to pronounce, is an interesting pale lager with its own unique taste coming all way from St. Petersburg, Moscow.
On pour there is a nice pale yellow appearance with a good frothy head which dies eventually to show some lacing.
The aroma is of sweet malt and grain producing a lovely rustic kind of smell that is both strong and appealing on the nose.
The taste is of some sweet malts, was slightly hoppy, with some light barley malt.
Overall I found that Baltika 7 Eksportnoe was quite easy to drink and it did the business after a long day of work. Having said that though, there was a small aftertaste that was quite strong but that brought a nice balance to the beer and I recommend this as a good session beer.

Poured from a 16.9 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a malt and citrus smell with a hint of that Euro Lager skunkiness thrown in.
Appearance- A transparent yellow with a small white head.
Taste- Has a nice malt and fruit mix not what I was expecting, a pleasant surprise.
Palate- A light bodied beer with heavy carbonation,.
Overall- Better than average, had a fruity taste than I expected. I would drink this again.
