Served in a shaker pint glass.

After being told about this whole Baltika line by a former co-worker, I was relatively jazzed to find a few at my local Caputo's. This one pours a clear pale golden-straw topped by a finger of relatively short-lived white foam. The nose comprises wild rice, generic grain, light flowers, very light grass, and a splash of hard water. The taste brings in more of the same, though a firm semi-biscuit backbone is evident, and the flowers provide a cleaner hop thrust than before. Still, everything just kinda lies there, mostly lifeless, certainly character-less. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slickly watery feel. Overall, this is just a boring, unassuming, little guy, something I'd likely confuse with any other bland Euro lager. It's not bad, per se, just nothing I'd ever really wanna drink again.

Ah yes Baltika, a very common beer in my native Ukraine which admittedly I've never been a fan of, but this is Baltika 7, which I've never had before, so let's go into this with an open mind.

The beer pours a slightly more pale yellow than most euro lagers and has a little hint of rice in the aroma. It is pretty nice, despite it probably having some adjuncts in it. It is refreshing with a light taste and good aftertaste. I'll admit this is probably not something I'll be buying a lot of, although it is a fine effort from Baltika, and certainly better than some of their non-export beers.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.75

Bright golden color with lots of thick head with good retention.
Aroma of malt and grassy hops.
Sweet malt flavor balanced by its grassy hops. Mildly dry but bitter aftertaste. Some buttery notes.
Full body with strong carbonation.
On the lower range of drinkability among Pilsners. I found it a bit too heavy given its buttery notes on a sweet malty base. Number 4 is still their best bet.
