Bright golden color with lots of thick head with good retention.
Aroma of malt and grassy hops.
Sweet malt flavor balanced by its grassy hops. Mildly dry but bitter aftertaste. Some buttery notes.
Full body with strong carbonation.
On the lower range of drinkability among Pilsners. I found it a bit too heavy given its buttery notes on a sweet malty base. Number 4 is still their best bet.

From the 25 fl. oz. green bottle with the screwy flip top. No. 13.08.12-15:10/13.08.13-5W. Sampled on March 31, 2013.

The pour is yellow with a longer lasting head than Baltika's #2 and #5 pale lagers. Good clarity.

The nose is fairly weak with some grains, grass, and a slight hop note but they all meld together in a blase fashion and do not make the beer all that enticing.

The body is light.

The flavor has a little more character with grainy malts, astringency, and a slightly lingering clean hop finale. Heineken, Carlsberg, St Pauli Girl - take your pick. It is very much like those but I think it is meant to be. Baltika #2 is better.

My first Russian, this was purchased out of sheer curiosity.
Taste wise it is malty with a very minor hop presence
Cereal notes, no unpleasant after taste that would accompany lesser lagers
Very Crisp and somewhat dry, In my opinion its a little too carbonated.
Overall it is sweet and drinkable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Clear medium golden body with a large white head, thin, fine-beaded lacing coats the glass wall. A few fat bubbles drift lazily to the surface.

Aroma: Lots of clean pale malt with a mildly earthy yeast note, clean and understated.

Taste: Opens with an abundance of pale malt, very mildly sweet, somewhat like freshly -baked white bread, as well as grassy hops. There seems to be a faint alcohol presence as well. AS the taste progresses, a very mild hop presence presents itself, which brings the taste to a graceful close.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, very pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Very drinkable, in a pleasant, understated sort of way, a quality beer, which speaks softly.

Presentation: Packaged in a custom 500ml (16.9 oz) green glass bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
