Around The World In 80 Beers episode 29: Baltika #3 Classic Lager

Baltika #3 Classic Lager is the Famous Beer Of Russia. Brewed in Sydney, dammit. I hate that.

Baltika No.3

The beer pours a very pale slightly cloudy amber with a medium head that fades rather fast to a thin ring. Lots of carbonation.

First Sip: Malty, sweet and slightly hoppy. A very faint bitterness builds on the back of the tongue.

The sweetness does become more noticeable as the beer warms slightly. If the beer brewed in St Petersberg is better than this beer brewed in Sydney, then it would be an excellent lager. As it is,It's nothing special. It is a nice session beer, where you could settle in with some mates and a carton, and watch the football, (Soccer, League, Rugby or NFL) or a movie on the telly.
