3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
1/3 Liter small bottle, Maxima XX. Smells like rootbear and vodka, but looks very nice with a brown/cherry hue. Tastes like kvass with a bad alcohol-intense aftertaste. For such a weak review though, actually this beer is quite reasonable and tasty.

500 ml can. BB 25/04/15. (Iki) Pasvalys, Lithuania.
Hazy brown colour with a small frothy light tan head.
Caramel malt, butter scotch, fruits, sugary sweetness, brown sugar and bread in the aroma. Surprisingly nice. The flavour is bready malty with lots of sweetness, brown sugar and more bread. A bit ordinary flavour.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
50cl can from Maxima, Vilnius. Pours clear chestnut coloured with a tan head. Malty aroma with lots of caramel, some bready notes and hints of spices. Sweet and reminds me a little bit about kvass, but a bit too much on the sweet side for my taste. Certainly flavourful and quite nice, but not quite my cup of tea.

Drinkable caramel malty brew. Bit bready, some choco, nuts. Sweet with light bittersweet finish. Bit too watery, but still enjoyable... mostly as dark thirst quencher. Decent price/performance

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml can, kindly shared by djoeye. Decent off-white head over a clear, red-brown. Spotty lacing. Promising aroma of dried fruits, berries and slightly roasted malts. Caramel malts and dried fruity flavours, rather jam-like. Roasted malt bitter ending. Medium bodied. Nice and not too sweet. Best of the evening sampling beers from Lithuania (Tromsø 17.01.2014).

Flaske delt med Willy, på brygga: flott beige skum, men lite aroma (litt for kald?). Flott rødlig ravfarge. En behagelig overraskelse, dette er et deilig snopeøl for de som liker sødmefylte øl med god munnfylde og myk ettersmak. Karamell med lys sjokolade. Et lite glass spansk brandy (Torres 10 Gran Reserva var det perfekte følge).
