Poured from about 2 inches above the glass giving it a big white head that pretty quickly dies to a think lacing atop a clear golden beer, pretty similar to exactly what Budweiser and Bud Light do.

A light sour mash aroma, with a hints of sweets and lemons.

The taste is very basic lager, get yourself some Budweiser and save some money and recycle the cans.

Pretty disappointing if you want to try something new, but then again is not total crap and there is a big market for beers that try to emulate the lager taste.

Was hoping to try something new, but this seems to be a new label on beer pong beer.

Had this last night at Vintage 301.Poured a light clear straw color with a minimal fizzy white head,aromas are clean with a hint of honey sweetness,not much going on.Flavors are a little sweet with that honey coming thru,a little grainy and husky.Plain no frills and not anything to seek out,I was dooped by the bartender,an English style lager,isnt that an oxymoron?

After Baltika 9, this one seems pretty good!!! Pours a clear light gold color with a large bubbly white head. The head fades fast, but leaves a bit of lacing. Smell is hardly there at all.

Taste is stronger than the typical lager. There is some element of grassy hops and a kind of mild fruitiness (maybe pears) that adds a bit of sweetness. I had it with Indian food and the taste actually stood up to it somewhat.

Mouthfeel is a bit light, still crisp but with a mild chemical/metallic aftertaste.

Overall this is an average lager.

New lager from Baltika with Pale Ale Malt as additive to be closer to English Ales? Haha, unfortunate PR action. 0.57l bottle. Frankly, I'm awaiting nothing good of it. Pours clear light golden beer with decent white head. Big bubbles. Aroma is malty with hoppy chemical undertones. Taste is clear and not urine-like, unlike other pale beers from Baltika, malty and smooth with moderate carbonation. Good beer for drinking once!
