look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

Pours witha clear and golden color and is topped with an avergae white frothy head that soon settles down to almost nothing.
The aroma is mild. Some malts, some grains and surprisingly slighty soury smell.
The taste is light and sweet, balanced body finishes with a slight hoppiness. Slight, really slight bittery feel in the aftertaste.
Ok, but nothing special.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

This lager is a nice golden color, light and bright with a clear body and topped off with a thick white head. The head forma a billowy mountaintop and you continue to pour, and the stream of lively carbonation slowly settles and disappears completely. There is a nice thins strong layer of lacing to mark every sip. The first aroma to hit you is the malts followed by some light grassy and lemony scents. It sweet overall and very refreshing. This is a light bodied lager, not much to the taste but still very refreshing.

Words cannot accurately describe how terrible this beer was. Did I get an old bottle? Was it something I said before I opened it?

It looks just fine out of the bottle. There's excellent clarity from the pale gold body, and a decent white cap that actually sticks around a bit. Everything goes way downhill from there.

If dry was a flavor, that would be the most positive comment I could make. Unfortunately, it's not. The beer is a strange mix of corn, chemicals, odd sweetness, plus a bonus face wincing sourness. The bitterness is light, yet harsh on the palate. It combines with the chemical flavors at the end to linger for what seems like an eternity. At least the body is light.

Overall, it's terrible stuff.

50 cl. clear (oh, lord) bottle @ home. Procured from Anna Maria in Antwerp. German import like most of the East-European goods available at these kinds of stores in Belgium. Bottled on 19.05.2013. Clear pale golden, foamy white head. Sweet sugary corn & cornflakes nose, light sunk accompanying the whole. Taste is soggy cornflakes, lots of them, corn, skunk, sugary, lightly syrupy & oily, sweet & soggy, touch artificial sweeteners, sweetish. Taste is soggy & oily. Crappy but manageable pale lager. The blond Baltika’s so far have been just crappy pale lagers unfortunately, too bad the 6 was pretty nice.
