1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Not a good sign when you can smell skunk during the pour. Damn green bottles...
Forgive the unusually abreviated review: No head or lace on a golden body. Skunk smell dominates sweetness. Straw/really sweet flavor with a definate alcohol presence. Palate is sticky sweet/astringent. Overall itís icky, and itís not just lightstruck. Itís malt liquor so not bad if youíre looking for the buzz, but I wonít be trying this again. One positive note: Iíve finally had a Lithuanina beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden color with a smallish white plastic looking head. Sweet herbal flower aroma. The alcohol is quite hidden in the aroma. Heavy malt sweetness starts with a touch of light caramel, then the alcohol does hit! Warms the back of the tongue and throat while floating through the nasal passages. I know this is going to deteriorate with warming, not that it is bad, but the alcohol is high and strong. A fine malt liquor actually.
