From Combini. In Bavaria glass. Playing Electronic Super Joy. Ultradrinkable. May not have much taste, but it isnt unpleasant and as a thirst-quencher it is insuperable

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 26.05.2013. Pull-off cap. Clear pale golden, fizzing away soapy white head. Nose is skunky, sweet corn, grains, odd faint coffee filter note, sweet, pale lager oily hop pellets,… Taste is bitter oily, grains, sweet corn, chemical, sweeteners, oily hop pellets, bitter grass, bitter in the back. Carb. is very high, slight watery olive oily, oily mouthfeel. Overall a pretty crappy pale lager but not the worst one.

Baltika Cooler has a thick, soapy, white head and a clear, bubbly, golden appearance, with nice lacing and just the most minimal amount of haze. The aroma is of sweet, bready barley malt and sugar. Taste is of lightly-toasted, sweet malt, sweet corn, sugar, a little paper, and grass. There is a nice little kiss of the hops at the end of the sip to balance it out. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Baltika Cooler finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, mostly dry, and very highly drinkable. I was quite pleasantly surprised by this beer. It was so delicious!

500ml bottle.Dimpled mug. Enjoyed on mar´12.Bright golden. Cristal clear.Brief crown.White froth.Moldy hint & lemon zest aromas. Grainy,earthy flavors.Puckering.No hoppy bitternes -in fact there are only in extract-. Light body,moderate carbonation. Metallic & lemony finish.Smooth sweet syrup hues. Guess who was first, Coronita or Cooler? Drink it direct from the bottle with a lemon wedge inside.

Found at San Roque market in Santa Barbara.

Clear fizzy yellow beer with a small white head, looks like thousands of other beers in the world that look like Budweiser.

Smell is toasted grain and a little noble hop. It smells a little grassy.

Starts out a little sweet with a wheat bran flavor. Toasted grain and cardboard, this beer has oxidized some. Tastes like really old Budweiser.

Mouthfeel is thin.

Overall this is mostly swill. Even fresh from the factory this is a boring beer.

BBD 31.7.11 "REFRESHING TASTE"

Cooler... than what?

A tall bottle, annoyingly so as it didn't fit on the shelf with other single beers, about an inch short of a 750 bottle. Cap pops with a satisfying *thwup*. Lots of foam into a tulip glass, sadly it fades fast to nothing. Visible rising carbonation. Super pale apple juice look.

Smells like stinging malaise. Wet grain and white grapes, alcohol. Is this beer or shitty box wine?

Flaccid and crappy feel, tastes like drinking fermented manila envelopes. Papery and dull, soggy wet grains, overall a poor american macro imposter. Grape and apple flavors, artificial and boozy... for a 4.7% beer? Yikes. Scrap this recipe and brew more Baltika 6 if you know what's good for you Baltika.

I wouldn't trust the opinion of anyone that enjoys this garbage.

Has this at the Split Rock Beer fest 2010. Probably my least favorite of the Baltika releases. This beer is just too generic in all the categories. Appearance is yellow and pale, rather boring looking. The aromas of a semi-skunky lager that doesn't really have anything else going for it. The taste is the same as a Beck's or anything else within those styles. I like Baltika, just not this brew.
