From Carrefour Huelva. In Bavaria glass. Watching Sons of Anarchy 7x04-05. Pleasant. Nice maltiness. Reminds me of the Weltenburger Pils, although at the end it becomes a bit watery.

Drank it out of a Can and Bottle. They both basically taste the same. Weird. Sweet malt, grassiness and classic lager bitterness. Not much in the way of flavor. Very short finish. Lower carb, smooth drinking. Super short finish. Blah.

Poured from a 500mL bottle into a stein.
L: Translucent light yellow (I can easily see my hand on the other side of the glass). Bubbles come from the bottom of the glass but the head disipates instantly.
S: Sweet lager aroma. Light hay with some malt (maybe pilsner).
T: Definitely has the macro lager profile, but it is slightly sweeter than an American macro lager. Processed syrupy like taste.
F: Very little if any, pretty much drinks like water.
Overall, this tastes like a sweet macro lager with the carbonation removed. Not something I would purchase or drink again.

Why am I being punished tonight?? No real redeeming qualities... Sweet and boozy even given the low ABV.. I've had most of the random Baltika brews that make it to Boise, but this is the first time I've given them my full attention.

Pours a clear golden color, topped with a decent white frothy head, slowly settling down. Malty aroma, slight sweet grains. Taste sweet, light (a bit watery) with some minimal bitterness and a slight metallic feel in the aftertaste. Not unpleasant, though.

Very dull euro pale lager, a little bit expensive in Mexico so not worth the money. Looks and smells right for the euro pale lager style, but taste is very shy.
