Baltika #9 Extra Lager

Type: Lager
Origin: St. Petersburg, Russia
Price: $1.79 per 0.5 L

This beer was a huge mistake. I was drawn to it by the cheap price, the Russianness, and the high alcohol content (8.0%). This is simply a good lager that they added vodka to. The Russian equivalent of Colt 45. If you can get past the astringent qualities of it, the lager part of it is not to shabby, and I can see the appeal of this. You probably don't want to pull this out until they ship your ass of to the gulags. It did give me a super hangover and all I had was this and the Hacker-Pschorr Weisse. Epic fail
