   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
Glouglouburp (5938) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 21, 2012
In short: A bland sugary golden beer without personality. Easy to drink for its gravity but ultimately boring
How: Bottle PET 2L, picked up fresh directly at the brewery and consumed the same day
The look: Clear golden body with almost no head
In long: Timid nose of toasted sugars. Taste is surprisingly soft for a 8% beer, husky grainy malts, toasted brown sugar, dried honey and some caramel to tie it all together. A bit of alcohol warmth. Carbonation is soft. After taste is toasted, grainy and sugary. Overall refined sugars sensation. No hops to speak of. This sugar-boosted Lithuanian strong beers (like Joalda Soprano or Joalda Vulkano) are just ultra-cheap way to get drunk. A million times better than our North-American hobo strong beers but still pretty boring. And if you’ve never tried one of those sugar-boosted Lithuanian, know that it’s never too late not to drink any of them.

TaktikMTL (5628) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2012
Bouteille en plastique de 2 l achetée directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Légère odeur de céréales. Apparence: La couleur est cuivrée. Saveur: Goût de céréales et d’houblons avec une pointe de sucre. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de céréales en arrière goût. (Rating #4250)

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2012
My Bottom Line:
Honeyed malts and light alcohol heat are met by decent herbal hops and their bitterness for yet another smooth Lithuanian strong lager.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the clear dark golden.
-The low carbonation and lean sugars make for a silky mouthfeel.
-This is the same kind of brew the government is trying to crack down on. Local drunkards apparently buy this type of brew a lot (some very good breweries make more money on this simple 8% golden brews than anything else) since it’s strong, smooth and comes in 2-liter plastic bottles. Still, this is leagues better than what the macros concoct for the masses over here.
-I’d much rather have their 4.7% version since it offers the same flavor profile with no alcohol presence and brighter cereals and hops.

Bottle.

FatPhil (8996) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 2, 2009
2l bottle (SOPP2009)
Big sweet butter-popcorn aroma. Malty too. Body similar - a large sweet light-malt and popcorn base. Touch of cheese in aroma later. Decent real hop - resiny and aromatic. Very tasty strong farmhouse lager.

TBone (12329) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2009
Plastic bottle 1 ltr @SOPP. Golden color, small white head. Bready, a bit diacetylic nose. Honey, butterscotch, alcohol, minerals. Very nice long hoppyness. Good, strong Lithuanian farm house beer.
