4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tried this beer at a local Lithuanian restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. Everyone at my table tried a sip and thought it was quite tasty. For those complaining about the alcohol, it ~IS~ 9.5% after all, but I didn’t notice any overpowering alcohol smell. Other reviewers seem to be quite harsh. This is a sweeter, maltier beer, so if you like your beers hopped out, this is not your beer. But if like like a good Belgian Abbey, you’ll likely enjoy Barrel 95. I would have happily had a second.

Chemically sweet, alcohol and malt aroma. Uneventful appearance. Taste is...funky... its like watered down grain alcohol w/ sugar. I wonder if this is Zydrunas Ilgasukas’s urine?

Bottle @ home. Ah yeah, another Lithuanian malt liquor rake. Clear golden pour with a short lived white head. Smells of apple juice, corn, and burnt grains. Really husky. Slightly soapy and lemony. Taste is that trademark grape juice, apple juice, and penny mixture. Yum. Cough syrup, some popsicles and candy...super sugary. This shit would probably give you a gnarly headache.

Battle thanks to frank. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with small white head. Nose is light pepper from the hops and booze. A solid malt flavor with sons alcohol warming. Pretty nice for high boost!

Whale share thanks to Homer321. Mostly clear, yellow orange, big off white head that dissipates quickly. Big malty, corny, slightly medicinal, sweet, aroma. Very sweet, very hot alcohol, slightly medicinal, light burning in the finish, some woody notes.

I guess this is new or rare? From a pretty big bottle. Really surprized this is not brewed by rinky. Smells a little rude, like old lager. Oh my, my has well been brewed by rinky, same old nasty flavor, lots of personality, quite volatile going down. Am I drinking spot remover? Wew, just a big kick in the face. If there is such a thing as baltic malt likker this is it. Nasty nellie nagging numbness fer a finish. This stuff is just plain rude! And I thought IPA was bad, wew.,....

I was hoping this would either be terrible because my favorite beers to write reviews on are terrible or that it would actually be some whacked out Lithuanian attempt at barrel aged beer. It is really neither of these things and so that is disappointing. This is just a sweet and fruity lager beer from Lithuania. It is super high gravity but still way better than most American malt liquors in that it is just a bit weird and not actively foul. It is pretty potent and I’m starting to get a head ache, not sure if the beer is the cause.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bright straw yellow with a light creamy haze. The nose is full of crusty French bread and caramel. full flavored, long and lingering finish with some tart citrus hops at the end.
The beer had great head retention and was a pleasant surprise through out front to back. Not a malt liquor as noted here but more like a Belgian style blonde. The price is very attractive as it retails at $2 per pint (16.9oz bottle). Great buy,
