2.7/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a very clear golden yellow. Moderate head that lasts a few minutes. Good bit of carbonation, bubbles rose for at least 15 minutes. Malt and grain aroma. Taste is slightly malty and grassy. Pronounced mineral aftertaste. Not a great beer, but better than Bud or Coors. At least now I can say I've had Russian beer. I actually expected it to be worse than it is.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Bottled 6/22/12. Best before 6/22/13.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and a slightly skunky aroma. Taste is mainly of malt and grain with a mild corn flake flavor on the finish. There is a mild bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty poor beer that doesn't smell or taste very good.

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.

I got this beer from a Ukrainian co-worker, thanks Alex!

500ml bottle served in a pilsner glass.

L - clear bright yellow color with a white head that thinned to a ring despite the constant rise of tiny bubbles.

S - grainy and grassy.

T - starts out kind of sweet and grainy with grassy (a bit skunky) bitterness mid way finishing on the sweet side.

F - light, crisp and refreshing.

O - not as bad as I thought it was going to be.

After Baltika No.3,i got to try another one from this brewery. And again it surprised me positively.

A-Golden with medium carbonation,huge white head.lasting few minutes.

S-Citrus notes,a bit lighter smell for lagers.

T/M-I expected to be more bitter,but bitterness is very low. On the other hand,taste is high drinkable,grains,some sweets.

O-It is good,but not many different then No3.

A-golden with a huge off white head

S-smells like a typical European lager. European grains and honey. Doesn't smell terrible.

T-actually comes in with a very nice and crisp taste of light honey and fresh grains with a subtle hint of that classic european lager taste. The after-taste has more honey, more crisp grains, and more bitterness. This is actually quite okay!

M-crisp medium carbonation with a semi dry finish

O-I actually love this. It has a taste of high quality and it's so drinkable! This has got to be the best euro lager I've ever had. I wish I could find this by the case here. It is quite cheap though!

Poured into a plastic cup. Minimal head, just enough to cover the surface. Golden, transparent color.

Smells like barley, other grains. Pleasant.

Watery taste at first, progressively sweeter.

High carbonation, which dampens the mood. Crisp and light body.

Not horrible, not great.

Served in a branded pilsner style glass. Very light in colour, with a sweet nose. Grains come in strong at the front, but it finishes fruitlike, perhaps a melon, I has having trouble determining what type. Not terribly complex, but pretty solid and consistent. A nice afternoon beer.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: (poured from a bottle into glass) light yellow, at least one finger head

Smell: very little smell

Taste/mouthfeel: very light, clean, fresh taste. Light bodied, very little aftertaste. Refreshing, but not too interesting

Overall, a good beer. Haven't tried many Russians, so I don't have much to compare it to, but it reminded me a bit of Steinlager Pure (a Euro Pale Ale).

I picked this beer up in my pursuit of reviewing all 104 styles. This beer is one of the easiest to get for the Dortmunder/Export Lager style.

I didn't expect much from a brewer coming out of Russia, but this beer surprised me. This is a very easy to drink lager.

The smell is nice and clean. It carries a minimal presence. The flavor is also very clean. I get a little bit of grassiness, and a tiny nutty touch.

I recommend this as a very easy to drink lager. The flavor is spot on.
