More brew from the local Carulla. Like the easy pop top, let's give it a whirl. Popping the easy pop top that is like a champagne pop, I get a big European classic adjunct lager whiff. Pours to a bright light yellow with huge bubble three finger head. Taste is uneventful, dry biscuity malt with limited bitterness. An easy drinker. Should go good with the sushi it is about to accompany.

Probably the better of the Baltika numbered beers. This one is crisp, refreshing, and much closer to a Euro Pale Lager or even a pilsner than a Dortmunder.

Goodness me, what on earth is this stinker? Well, an acquaintance brought this over and he didn't know any better. Still, I am one to be very much looking in the mouth of a gift horse.

Stinky aroma with a moderate skunkiness. Thin and watery texture. Very light non-descript flavor. Overall impression....watery. Would not get again.

16.9 oz. bottle poured into flute
(bottled 4/15/14 in green glass; drank 2/5/15)

L: 100% clear yellow, 1-inch ultra-white head of foam; no stick or lace, very few bubbles; looks flat; slight lacing

S: SKUNK ... just a bit up front then it disappears; very fruity and malty sweet -- bread malt; dust, onion, cilantro, sour grain

T: super fruity -- peach, apricot, almost hint of plum; bread malt ... not bad

F: light but full with carbonation ... but the more I drink it, the more I feel a bit weak

O: not that bad ... the sunlight/UV/whatever light has skunked it just a bit, but it's still super fruity for an overall smaller flavor/aroma profile

This is very much what I expected and hoped for. Baltika 7 is on par with most of the Euro lagers I've tried. There is less skunk in the nose, but the same notable malt-hop pairing I enjoy in the other "green bottle" lagers. It has a clean, smooth finish with an enjoyable light hop aftertaste. This would pair nicely with homemade borscht!

Review: Bottle of Baltika 7 Eksportnoe (Export) 5.4%ABV
Baltika 7 Eksportnoe, a handful to pronounce, is an interesting pale lager with its own unique taste coming all way from St. Petersburg, Moscow.
On pour there is a nice pale yellow appearance with a good frothy head which dies eventually to show some lacing.
The aroma is of sweet malt and grain producing a lovely rustic kind of smell that is both strong and appealing on the nose.
The taste is of some sweet malts, was slightly hoppy, with some light barley malt.
Overall I found that Baltika 7 Eksportnoe was quite easy to drink and it did the business after a long day of work. Having said that though, there was a small aftertaste that was quite strong but that brought a nice balance to the beer and I recommend this as a good session beer.
