|Review||Baltika No. 8
Appearance: Light yellow with a large head and little to no lacing.
Smell: A hint of wheat and yeast.
Taste: Bland wheat and yeast water.
Mouthfeel: Medium and semi-smooth.
This is one of the most bland beers I've ever had. It makes Bud Light seem complex. If you've never had a Russian beer, don't start with this one.
