thirstyrabbit (1147) - Tallinn, - NOV 9, 2012
From tap to PET bottle as "Miežinis Premium". Light golden body, medium head. Sweet malty aroma with lots of cookie dough and light yeast. Simple malty taste with sweet butter cookies. Medium hoppy finish. A solid lager.

ectuohy27 (627) - ESTONIA - AUG 5, 2014
Smooth, decent, drinkable, but watery and a bit flat with fainter notes all around. Birzai surely has better than this.

boxofrane (2255) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle at the brewhouse. Pours clear yellow with a large white head, solid retention. The aroma has some hay, some straw, but is not strong at all. The taste has a nice grainy pils flavor, slight hoppiness.

larsga (6314) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2012
Small white head. Clear yellow body. Light mealy grainy aroma with notes of freshly sawn wood. Sweet-dryish dried fruit and flour taste with earthy herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry earthy fruity floral aftertaste with strawy pea notes. Nice and highly drinkable, if a bit anonymous. (0.5l draft at Vilniaus Alus, Vilnius.)

TaktikMTL (6021) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Bouteille de plastique de 500 ml dégustée directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Légère odeur de céréales. Apparence: La couleur est blonde avec une moyenne densité de bulle. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux et d’une large dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de céréales avec une pointe de miel. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Présence de céréales en arrière goût. (Rating #4228)

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2012
My Bottom Line:
Honey-laced cereals ride this lager’s soft effervescence while herbal hops provide a smidge of bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the clear golden.
-Their lineup is really similar to Rinkuskiai’s, an important competitor in Northern Lithuania.
-Mouthfeel is quite pleasant. Many Czech breweries (the bigger ones) produce similar brews.
-Although generic, this is perfectly serviceable and showcases its quality malts nicely.

Bottle.
