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.

visionthing (2625) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2014
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.

Vells (652) - LATVIA - MAR 3, 2014
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

Rune (7830) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 19, 2014
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).

500 ml alu-can 5.9%abv b@supermarket in Marijampole Lithuania. Off white head. Red body, to the red brown side. Scents of caramel, confectionery, sweet roasted malts, old pale wild cherries. Tastes malt, jam, fruit, roasted malt, dark syrup, cinnamon. Full bodied, good to palate. Finally the taste continues, with hints of apple. Overall really tasty stuff this. Tamsusis = dark, elis = ale. Enjoyed@BalticRateMeet with Rune 2014-jan-17

Holmen1 (2316) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2013
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).

larsga (6163) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2013
Medium beige head. Clear deep dark red body with light carbonation. Caramelly fruity perfumy aroma with spicy cinnamon and cocos notes. Dry-sweet earthy perfumy caramelly taste with fruity spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, slightly fluffy mouthfeel. Dry-sweet sugary toffee and earth aftertaste with caramelly earthy funky strawy notes. Interesting, unusual, and drinkable. Very nice. (0.33l bottle, from Bamb Alyne, Vilnius.)

skelo (35) - Kaunas, LITHUANIA - JUL 7, 2013
0.5 can. One of the most interesting Lithuanian beer cellar. When this beer appeared at one time was one of my favorite Lithuanian beer. With excellent flavor, good looks and a pleasant taste. You can drink a lot and still retain their good aftertaste. This brewery might not have a bright interesting beers, but boasts several beautiful dark beers. And Tamsusis Elis - one of them.

3fourths (7888) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Draft at Alynas in Vilnius.
Chestnut brown body, small tan head.
Cola and caramel syrup flavor.
Sweet Dr Pepper, metal flakes, plums, wort.
Under-fermented, raw, unfinished.
I don’t understand at all, how can people drink this?
Flabby grape jelly and dry pet food grains and the slightly touch of roast.
Acidic and husky.
