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.

Pours a pale yellow with a medium white head. The aroma is skunky and of plastic, but with a hint of actual hops and pale malts. Flavour is corny with a bitter bite at the end that suggests hops, as well as some skunk and sulfer. Really nothing too bad all things considered. Mouth-feel is quite light but biting and lively.

A - Poured a straw color with a decent white head that fades quickly though

S - Is pretty light but theres some grainy malt like a macro

T - It sweetens up a little from the smell but still grainy I think the style should be American Macro Lager instead

M - This beer has a light body with high carbonation to it

D - For a Dortmunder/Export lager its not really anything special but if you call it an American Macro its a decent beer and for the cheap price tag its not bad as well try if you want something new

Out of a bomber this beer was a clear golden color with one finger of white foam. The retention was only average and it left mild lacing. The aroma was of macro grains, a hint of floral hops, sweet malt and a little bread. The flavors were pretty much exactly like the aroma: boring and right down the middle. Drinkable, to be sure, but so blasé as to be unappealing. The mouthfeel was fine, the body medium/light and the carbonation bit light too. Just kinda uninspired and clearly like a Budweiser for the Russian working class.

Pours a clear very pale yellow color with a nice creamy and tall bright white head that slowly dissipates into a thin lace. Nose is sweet malt and fresh grain and is rather clean. Taste is lightly sweet malt and is fresh and crisp with little to no hop bitterness present. A fairly simple light and refreshing brew.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

From the 25 fl. oz. green bottle with the screwy flip top. No. 13.08.12-15:10/13.08.13-5W. Sampled on March 31, 2013.

The pour is yellow with a longer lasting head than Baltika's #2 and #5 pale lagers. Good clarity.

The nose is fairly weak with some grains, grass, and a slight hop note but they all meld together in a blase fashion and do not make the beer all that enticing.

The body is light.

The flavor has a little more character with grainy malts, astringency, and a slightly lingering clean hop finale. Heineken, Carlsberg, St Pauli Girl - take your pick. It is very much like those but I think it is meant to be. Baltika #2 is better.
