Drinking "9" Extra Lager as I write this - delicious caramel flavor, quite rich - Great beer picked up for 2.49 at a Liquor store in La Jolla, CA

Josh might be able to explain more about the beer.

    I had one of the Baltika beers (I forget which one) with dinner at Pomegranate and it went perfectly with the food. Good stuff

      Yes - this is where I found about it! I agree

      Baltika 8 is a decent and affordable Hefe-weizen.

        I love all the Baltika beers. Here in NYC if you go down near sheepshead bay they are for sale in all of the delis and there is also a bar called Baltika right on Brighton Beach.

          Baltika 9 is just horribly, horribly sweet and alcoholic. It belongs in a clear, 40 ounce bottle with the rest of its brethren. Unpleasant stuff, imo.

          Baltika 6, on the other hand, is a nice Baltic porter.
