nothing great here. turned out to be better than expected, actually. this one pours a very light gold...almost rolling rock-esque. smells of malt anf grain, though nothing overpowering here. one might just assume they were taking a whiff of a glass of water. it delivers a surprising smooth taste with hints of flavour, but nothing overpowering. still a bit too watery for my liking. i guess i might drnk this one again. i can't recommend it, but can't say stay away either. (474 characters)

The lady in the store said this only comes in cans. Guess that's for the domestic market, given the previous review of a bottled product. Oh well.

My canned version poured a nice golden color with a small head that lost no time in disappearing. Lace? Forget about it. Smell? Not really. The mouthfeel is fizz, with just a touch of malt. The taste is pretty neutral, maybe a touch of sweetness and a dab of fruit. A bit of hops comes out a little bit later, but only if you are trying real hard to find it. This is drinkable stuff if nothing else is around, but Baltika can and does do much better. (600 characters)

This is the second beer I've tried from Baltika, and I believe that it's the better of the two. Although the beer has a thin head and a lackluster appearance...gold but slightly hazy and not quite appealing...it makes up for it in taste. A flavorful maltiness makes the beer stand out. It's a little oily, and has a slightly metallic characteristic. but I enjoyed it. (370 characters)
