2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can, from an ethnic food store in Scunthorpe. Pale gold, thin shortlived white head and gentle condition. Low estery fruitiness in the nose, quite sweet in the mouth but with a building harsh peppery bitterness that becomes unbalancing, estery finish with a mouth coating bitterness lingering.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
The head is unrobust, the body blond. It smells watery, a bit malty, strange. The taste is watery and a bit dirt. 3/3/2/1/10/3

500ml can (Maxima, Vilnius) - shared with the Hel posse!
Pissy pale. Pissy aroma. Pissy palate. Very floral taste, considering how watery the aroma was. Bland and cleanish, a bit starchy (I’m very starch-sensitive today).

500 ml can. BB 08/03/14. From Lithuania. Courtesy of FatPhil. Ačiū!
Clear pale yellow colour with a tiny white head.
Sweetness and some floral notes in the aroma.
There’s malt and sweetness in the flavour.
This is totally useless brew. The flavour is very weak. Bad!
This is Olvi-style brew brewed in Lithuania. Why there are beers like this?

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
(Can, 0.5 l, courtesy of FatPhil, 20130713) The beer poured very pale golden and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma was very very mild and had some sweetness. Palate was light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were very mild, too, and contained sweetness and very mild bitterness. No aftertaste. What’s the point of brewing this kind of beer without any aroma or taste?

To call such europale lager Export is just a shame to my country. Very unspeciall beer and even label looks awfull.
