2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl can recieved as a gift. Poured initially clear caramel brown, but ended up muddy brown, but still a fairly decent, but short lived, beige head. Malty and bready aroma with a fair amount of caramel and notes of dried fruits. Less sweet than expected, quite tasty and it goes down rather easy. Nice one.

Zuckerwasser schlimmster Art. Immer wieder versuchen wir es und immer kommt die Enttäuschung. Nun ja, eine gewisse Brotigkeit ist nicht von der Hand zu weisen, aber sonst ? Bah.

Can ordered in Poland. The drink has got a deep dark brown / blackish colour with a small head and medium to thin body. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste of sweet malt, caramel, bread. Sweet malty finish. Nothing really good.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
750ml bottle (Iki, Panevyzis)
Rich brown, muddy and murky. Semi-sweet, rich rye bread component. Sweeter as it warms, otherwise less sweet than the big-brewer giras. Butter very low. Raisins only come in later. Decent gira, but not as good as a really good one (I am a fanboi of the style though).

750ml plastic bottle. Muddy brown color. Tiny to no head. Plastic, bready, sweet notes in aroma. Massive sweetness, bread and bit of raisins in taste. Sweet and sticky body. It’s way too sweet for me.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
From a large plastic bottle. Bubbles at the surface of an unclear apricot coloured body. Smell is bread and sweet apricot. Taste of sweet dried fruits. Mid-sweet ending. Soft drink, some refreshment when served chilled (kindly shared by djoeye, Tromsø 07.05.2014).

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2014 Hazy amber/apricot body.
Smokey apricot to the nose.
Taste is sweet fruity, somewhat smoked apricot compote. Not much bread.
Normal smooth feel, ok carbonation. Sweet fruity finish.
Easy going drink.
