500ml on tap at Alaus Namai. Pours clear light brown with a small beige head. Aroma is kvass, caramel, bread. Taste is dark bread, caramel, brown sugar, raisins. Like an alcoholic version of kvass. Don’t think it fits the Dunkel/Tmavy category.

lokis333 (277) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - JAN 3, 2016
Clear dark rye bread color with creamy off white foam. Aromas are sweet, sugary and kvass/gira like, reminds of dark rye bread and dark grains. Palate, medium/light texture with sweet creamy lightish texture and sweet texture. Taste was sweet wit hints of darker light bitterness on the end. Tastes bready, malty and of rye. Over all nice light bready reminding of gira/kvass session beer.

Lite skit rensar magen, upprepas som en schlagerrefräng i alla möjliga tonarter och ekar över varje generationsklyfta. Jag ber till högre makter om att det inte är en klämkäck vanföreställning; en gammal husmorsvisdom som motbevisats av erfarenheten men som ingen orkat gnugga bort ur det kollektiva medvetandet. För om så inte är fallet måste jag nog magpumpas nu.

thebeertourist (5169) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle at Bambalyne, Vilnius. Dark brown colour, small head. Fruity aroma with notes of hay and caramel. Good berry and caramel flavours, a hint of roast and hop bitterness gives sufficient balance. Enjoyable.
