Poured from a 500 ML bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Columbia, SC. The appearance is a clear pale yellow color with a large white head. The aroma is off-putting, stale and skunky. The taste is grains and sadly, skunkiness.

Bottle from Mix markt in Kaiserslautern. Drinkable, but bland. Adjunct grains smooth it out, and also take away from any flavor and taste. Baltika needs to stick to one pale lager...

Poured from a green 16.9 oz. bottle. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of grains, a bit skunky. Taste is crisp, malts, grains, a slight bit of sweetness, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent session beer, but nothing to get excited about.

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that gradually died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of sweet adjunct malts are present in the nose—rice seems to stand out in particular—along with some hints of grassy hops.
T: Despite coming from a green bottle, the overall taste isn't skunked and has some initial sweetness followed by notes of bready and grainy malts. Only faint hints of bitterness from the hops are detectable.
M: It feels light-bodied, rather smooth and a little clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Although there's nothing special about the taste of this beer, it's easy to drink and doesn’t' have any offensive flavors.
