This one looks beautiful in the bottle and pours out a rich golden color with a somewhat fleeting pure white head. The high praise ends with the first sip. This is basic Euro Pale Lager. If I hadn't had known I would have said I was drinking a Heineken since it shares its flavor profile.

Baltika started sweet, then quickly became chalky and leathery in flavor. Its a beautiful looking beer and that's as far as my praise goes.

Beautiful thick head with great retention! That's about it. Light flat flavor with no malt or hop bite. After the presentation I was very let down by the rest of the experience
