One of the first Russian beers I had ever had. This brew reminded me of a Becks. The color was a yellowish gold, the aroma wasa little grassy and had a but of a funk to it. The taste was bitter in the same ways as the aroma. The brew seemed to be much like a German Lager and not so much of a Russian one.

Got the 'mini-keg' offering. Not bad taste, just not much taste at all (a little bit of corn, maybe?). Looks suprisingly good, refreshing, but no real taste. Very thin mouthfeel. Very well priced given the serving offering, but nothing too special. I would probably by overe most common Macros for the price.

another beer from the Baltika Challenge we held. This one wasn't one of the better ones. poured with a totally white head and a straw colored body. malt and corn and ethanol odor like a stinky old malt liquor. taste is bitter, astringent and dry....im thinking amstel. its funny because Vlad (the Russian we were drinking with) said that this is supposed to be the version of #3 that they export out to everywhere else. why do they think non-russians want to drink a shittier version of #3? eh. thin and not a good drinkin' beer.

look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Pours a pale yellow with a hefty but quickly diminishing white head.
The aroma is fairly easy to pick up - some malts and grains thats basically it.
The taste starts quite sweet and in the same manner it also continues. The finish is slightly bittery but nothing special.
Drinkable although too much sweetness.

While, in general, I've found Baltika to offer some really well priced options, this one was a turd.

Pours a clear gold with a big white, macrolager-ish head. Smells somewhat skunked, but with a corn-y sweetness to it that's almost malt liquorish. People describe bananas. I get none in smell.

There is a bit to the taste, and it's the only thing redeeming about it. Overly sweet grain alcohol and an unpleasant syrupy mouthfeel really make this a one-note, off putting brew.

There are much better Baltika options.

I'm guessing this is Russia's version of Miller Light or Budweiser. I drank it straight from the bottle, which seemed much more fitting for this than it did for the other Baltika's that I've tried. Anyway, it had a pretty mild flavor and watery texture. It had a generic but mostly clean taste. There's not much more to really say about this. Overall it was better than a Budweiser, but it was still pretty boring.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Pours clears with a very short-lived head that settles to a film. Some spotty lace early on.

No real nose to the thing. Some hoppiness typical of Eastern European stuff - hay, grass. Taste is just too sweet. Some hop bitterness, a bit of breadiness, but overwhelmed by corny sweetness. Lingers slightly bitter.

Nothing to recommend this one. Pretty anonymous like a zillion other Eastern Euro macros. Drinkable, but not interesting or exciting.

Tall boy can served in a half pint.

A: Pours a clear yellow color with a quick dissolving white head forming on the pour. No lace. Nothing crazy.

S: Some mineral water with a light skunky hop profile. Pale malts with a touch of glue.

T: More mineral water with some light plastic to boot. Grassy and skunky hop profile with a touch of grainy malts.

M: Light and clean. The body is very watery and light. Goes down quick and harmless.

O: There were some artificial notes in there that really hurt the flavor, otherwise it would have been a normal export lager.

Pours a clear yellow colour with small, bubbly white head that dissipates to nothing fairly quickly. No lacing on the glass at all. This smells fairly bad atually, though the bottle is fresh I believe. I don't get any hops, hardly any malt. No real bitterness. Big carbonation level. I don't want to have this again.

I did not like this beer. It was fresh, part of the LCBO gift pack. No direct sunlight, though you cannot stop the less disasterous flourescent lighting in the store. The beer had a light yellow colour to it, carbonation bubbleswere apparent, and there was a big cheesy head. The horse and cheese aromas made it unapproachable. Boozy and sugary.Watery.

1.65/5  rDev -45.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Freshness date of 29.06.09/29.06.10 so it seems this one is pretty fresh. Pours a light gold color with a fizzy, large bubbled white head. Pretty typical Euro lager appearance.

Smells like stale malts, cardboard and a bit of butter. Not a very appealing aroma on this beer.

Ugh, taste unfortunately follows suit closely. Actually worse than it smells due to a molten plastic flavor joining the aforementioned foulness from the aroma. Tastes like groundwater pumped from one of the chemical plants on the ship channel. Drain pour for sure and easily the worst Baltika offering I have had.

This has to go down as one of the worst beers of all time. Skunky and weak. boring head and no lacing.

smell of adjuncts and grain with some sweetness.

Tastes like a skunk that is hungover. hop presence is non existent. this is a slammer at best.

not reccomended
