Part of what appears to be a renewed marketing drive on the Baltika products in Georgia, this appeared with a large range of Baltika beers, that from memory, have been slightly repackaged and spruced up.
500 mL clear glass bottle (sensitive folks can start to panic) it really has a very attractive bright golden hue. Unfortunately – and utterly predictably – this is where the attraction largely ends! Head is short lived and lacing is virtually non-existent.
Aromas and tastes are exactly in line with the expectations. Corny vegetable sweetness and completely bland in all other respects. On the plus side no offensive alcohol edge or skunk and quite refreshing.
Quite how one would distinguish this from literally thousands of other similar products is beyond me, but for what it is I suppose it’s OK. As long as you have low expectations they will probably be fulfilled.
