Pakruojis - capital of crows, humour and beer. This is tradidional beer, dark as a crow, easy to drink. Non-pasteurized, filtered beer.

Alus "Varniukų" - tai 5,6% stiprumo, juodas alus, turintis maloniai saldoką skonį, primenantis močiutės ruginės duonos, bei avižų giros skonį. Silpnas apynių aromatas. Galima ragauti ir gerai pašildytą, įdedant į alų citrinos skiltelę.

Clear crimson, medium white head. Light caramel, some diacetyl, but not too bad. Rather sweet, some roasty caramel. Finishes caramely and a bit watery. Eh.

Aroma of bread, kvas and a bit of butter. Taste is very similar to kvas. It just tastes like an alcoholic version of kvas. Very dark, nice color.

KyotoLefty (8922) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2013
Tap at Snekutis old town. Almost black, flat, murkey. Ass smell of sour cherries, vinegar, grass ,cabbage. Not in the best condition, I would guess. Tangy, thin flavor of cherry, vinegar, somewhat like an oude bruin, but very thin.
