1 litre bottle, thx RexTalionis! Dark brown, lacing white head. Lacto aroma, bread, rye, medicinal. Flavor is sweet, bready, sweet fruity/herbal thingy. Very strange. Low bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 100 cl. Pours unclear brown in color with a tan head. Light toasted breadyness, some earthy sweetness and dry, almost burnt wooden notes in aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. Sweetish raisins, roasted plums and mild earthy bitterness in taste. There’s something I just like about these Lithuanian beers, they’re a bit different, more like a down to earth approach in this brew.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown colour, hazy, thick but diminishing head. Aroma: first impression is some sour aroma and hay, then comes caramel, roasted malt and rye bread (somewhat similar to kvass). Lightly sour taste. Light body, soft carbonation, pleasant oily texture. Strange beer, not for everyone, but good to drink from time to time. 50 cl bottle.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, 5.5%. Buttery aroma. Cloudy red/brown colour. The flavour is buttery, malty, hint of roasted barley. Rough bitterness. Would have been good without the butter, I guess.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
1L bottle. Yeast, and loads of it. Very sharp taste. Pours with a frothy had, that dissipated in 15seconds. Dark orange in colour, cloudy. Light body for a dunkel. Oily, no carbonation. Not the most pleasant Finnish. Will re-rate if ever get another one. This beer travelled too much, and the BBE is less than 10 days.
