    I guess he was riding later that day ... and you know how those ex USSR cops are about alcohol behind the wheel.

    Certainly he wasnt drinking it for the taste !

    In Russia, ZERO !

    A problem with Baltica 0, apart from the taste, is it still smells of beer and if they smell it on you, you will suffer all the inconvenience of being taken in for proper testing before they realise their mistake and let you go.

    Further problems with ZERO tolerance can be that Kvass (a non alcoholic, brewed drink) and Kefir (a yogurt/buttermilk) both produce breath than can register as having alcohol.
