Poured from bottle into ale glass.
The cap has a pull top on it and pops like champagne when pulled open.
This beer has a beautiful 1 inch head and the color is a golden blonde.The smell is of barley and corn with a touch of grain.Taste is pretty much all barley but in a great way.Feels smooth and clean all the way down.I really enjoyed this beer and love the Dortmunder style even though the beer was simple.

Bought from Times Fujioka's
Clear golden color
Light Mouthfeel
Medium-light carbonation
Clean sweet malt taste
Overall an ok beer. Slightly better than a Bud Light. Would drink if given to me, but would not go out to buy it.

Baltika 7 Export Lager has a thick, white head, a clear, golden appearance, strong bubble streams, and no lacing left behind. The aroma is of pungent, fairly intense, biscuity malt and grassy hop oils. Taste is a bit bold- sweet, biscuit and grassy hops, with a background spice (think white pepper). Mouthfeel is medium, and Baltika 7 Export Lager finishes crisp and interesting.

From Carrefour Huelva. In Bavaria glass. Watching Sons of Anarchy 7x06. Very drinkable. Maybe a bit more sweet and with a lower body than I prefer but good nonetheless

Poured at 43°F from an 11.2oz bottle into a Pilsner glass. Consumed on 10Feb16.
LOOK: Pours with three fingers worth of white foam. At 3 minutes, the edges of the foam head have dissipated into a fingers worth of foam while the center of the head has only shrunk by 1 finger. The result is a nice, little plateau of foam. Pale gold in color (almost straw yellow). There is an abundance of medium-sized rising bubbles. Lacing is moderate in quantity and thick with some areas being very thick.
SMELL: Mild aromas of biscuits, hand soap, car exhaust, and sugar water are backed by hints of skunk.
TASTE: Mild flavors of biscuits and sugar water eneter initially and are immediately followed by subtle spicy and floral hop flavors. No car exhaust, hand soap, nor skunk flavors are present.
FEEL: Somewhere between Medium-bodied and light-bodied. Carbonation is high. Goes down rough. Finishes crisp.
NOTE: My second beer from this brewery and I'm not sure which one disappointed me more. The previous one tasted worse, but this one was a terrible example of what a Dortmunder should be. I like Dortmunders and had high hopes for this, regardless of my previous experience with the brewery.

Trying to replicate a crappy NA macrobrew, and they’ve succeeded. Sweetish aroma reminds one of a radler, taste and mouthfeel are extremely watery. Looks like urine in a glass. A shame, as Baltika has proved they can do much better.

500ml bottle (exp. 01/17/2016, bottled 01/17/2015), pilsner glass. Straw in color, white foam that has short retention. Good aroma, but nothing special. Good taste, well balanced, focusing on malts. Medium body and crispy. Has some bitterness and dryness too.

500 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 5/21/2015. Pours crystal clear bright golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Outstanding appearance. Aromas of cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, biscuit, light honey, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness after the finish, and very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes present. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/grainy/sticky, and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5.4%. Overall this is a nice Dortmunder style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and clean to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

From can, pours a straw clear colour with small white head that goes away quickly. Aroma is malty and grainy with straw and corn notes. Flavor is sweet with some bitterness and acid citric notes. Not bad.
