“Grand miežių” beer (9,5%) is a very strong sort of lager beer, produced according to the old Lithuanian traditions using an especially high quality light barley malt, best bitter and aromatic hops, clear water, with a bit of corn to make the aromatic spectrum of beer original and unique.

Total crap! The big foamy white crown on a hard pour dies rather quickly as does my enthusiasm for actually continuing drinking this, bright gold with some unfiltered stuff (not much), slow moving bubbles. The odor is chalk, oddly sweet apple, grass, candy and pee. Taste borders between pretty undrinkable and totally undrinkable. Actually, it tastes just like the description at the top of the page looks. Odd. Metallic, bad apple, grass, alcohol, cardboard. Thick and viscous, bad after taste. I seriously had a headache instantly. I’m going to go and throw this beer at a bum.

Can, clear deep golden colour, aroma pf candied fruis and traces of corn, flavour of sugar with hints of tropical fruits. strong repulsive blend of sweetness and alcohol which shows quite strongly, really bad.

Can. Clear golden color with a medium white head. Aroma of grainy malt, light corn hints and a bit of grass. Sweetish flavor with grainines, metal and a bit of alcohol. Light-medium body. Alcohol is pretty well-hidden but it’s still nothing good.

alcohol is hidden in the smell which is very sweet and a bit like bubblegum, its a dark orange colour it has a candy like taste, a little fruity even, its grows on me with each sip its got a decent body this tastes like a really ghetto attempt at an exotic ale, unexpectedly interesting, and absolutely worth a try

A golden malt liquor qith a thick white head. A sickly sweet aroma of powdered sugar and alcohol. A rather sweet malt liquor very thin and boring. Bad! 3.29$ at LCBO. Tasted on March 2007.

Had a thick gold colour with a thin white head and lots of carbonation. Aroma of alchohol, medicine, some grainy malts and syrupy sweetness. Tasted like it smelled, pretty harsh, the alchohol is not hidden at all. I started drinking these out of the can after a while just so I could get drunk so it would tast better. Stay away from this beer!

I’ve had this several times, but never rated it. The aroma is interesting. Definitely the aromas of corn, alcohol and malts typical to the style, but also an interesting aroma of overripened bananas, and vanilla. The appearance is not a surprise, the clear, pale yellow with a white head. The taste is a lot like the aroma: malty, corn, with a peculiar fruit sweetness. The alcohol in this bad boy really makes itself known. Not unenjoyable. The palate is a mix of alcohol and mild hops. Definitely better than Colt 45, and a lot of others. And you can’t beat the 99 cent pricetag!

16oz can. Gold colored with instant aroma of corn, tin, and cheap alcohol. Taste is immediately overpowered by the alcohol and tin flavors. Tastes like watered down booze. After a few they become easier to drink, but are still horrid.
