Baltika #3 Classic

Updated notes 10/18/23 (Pictured)

Again, 18 years between these notes and tastings. Head is better, and better retained than the notes below suggest in 2023. Outside of that, many of the same attributes are present making this ‘not awful’, and that being the approximate pinnacle for the classic Baltika lager.


Original notes 04/30/05

Sweet (over and) undertones to this malt-based lager, with only very little dry hoppy bitterness.

Not a very special beer to look at, thin, pale and yellow with no significant head beyond the first few seconds of the aggressive pour.

Just about fufills my (low expectation) criteria for these beers, i.e. no skunk, drinkable, refreshing and no unpleasant aftertaste. Outside of that nothing to report.

Baltika makes several other, better beers. Don’t be put off by this pretty average showing.
