This is our first Russian beer we have stocked in the shop. Jess and I were interested in featuring a couple more countries so we picked up this euro-style strong lager.
The Baltika #9 starts off with a pleasant floral/fruit aroma and follows with a semi-sweet raw sugar palate. We detected a hint of pink grapefruit and cranberry on the finish. Overall, it has a great balance and works well with the higher alcohol content.
In the shop for $4.50 in a pint bottle.
