Baltika Brew Collection: Russian Honey Brown

This 4.5% ABV brown ale brewed with honey is from the Baltika Breweries of Saint Petersburg, Russia (home of the great Russian writer Dostoyevsky). It is part of their Baltika Brew Collection.

The beer pours amber and light brown in color. There is nearly an inch of off-white head. The aroma is as strongly of honey as any honey ale I have ever had. There is also caramel malt, and a bit of nuttiness. The taste is honey, honey, honey, and then toasted and roasted malt, nutty, with a bit of caramel. There is enough hops that the honey sweetness still comes to a mostly dry, and lightly bitter finish. The beer drinks easy with a tingling carbonation. This is a nice brown ale for those that like the taste of honey.
