Baltika #7 Premium Lager

This lil' brew hails from Petrograd aka Leningrad aka Saint Petersburg, Russia, where it's brewed by Baltika Breweries.  It's an extremely clear, pale lager that pours a nice, yellow straw colour topped with a shock of white head.  It is moderately carbonated and comes in a 500mL bottle that features a cool shape and a ring-top.  Baltika weighs in at a robust 5.4% alcohol.
It has an aroma of bitter grain. It's a mild, drinkable beer, with a slight bready sweetness and a dusting of hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is quite thin and smooth.  All in all, a very mellow brew.
 #7 has a nice flavour and a slight, short aftertaste that makes this a very approachable beer.  And the slightly elevated alcohol content is a nice touch. It's a pretty solid lager.  It won't knock your socks off, but it certainly won't let you down.  Baltika #7--a beer worth trying.

Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
