Sorry, just can’t stand kvass. This is kvass-y through and through (nice foamy head, opaque brown color, unrelenting caramel sweetness--for a RateBeerian with a dedicated sweet tooth, this is saying something), so on a hedonism scale it’s simply not gonna cut it. Interesting experiment though

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Canned 500ml. -from Iki supermarket Vilnius. Dark amber coloured, medium sized beige head that stays for a while, pure sweet kvass nose. Really sweet kvass taste with notes of caramel and hint of tobacco. Also some notes of dried fruits in the a way too sweet finish. Interesting in a way but...

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can, from Lithuania, thanks Ogi! So 50% Duonos Gira, 50% Kunigaikščių (how that makes 3.5% is beyond me). Geez. Dark red-amber body. Creamy, slightly butterish and caramelly kvass aroma. Sweet kvass taste.... Basically a sweet commercial kvass that had its’ ABV boosted. If that’s your thing, go ahead... it’s not like it’s flawed or anything it’s just not a thing I dig that much.

500ml can kindly shared by djoeye. Beige bubbly head, fragile lacing. Unclear, red-browninsh coloured body. Aroma is sweet bready malts. Bread-like flavours followed by dried fruits, lightly spiced. Kvas-impression, not that sweet though. Easy to drink. Just alright (Tromsř 17.01.2014).
