larsga (7077) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2014
Medium coarseish offwhite head. Hazy deep yellow body. Strawy resiny earthy aroma with plastic and honey notes. Dry-sweet fruity dusty straw taste with spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish strawy fruity aftertaste with herbal sugary buttery notes. Nice, drinkable, not terribly remarkable. Improves as it warms. (0.5l bottle, from iki extra, Vilnius.)

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle from iki. Very excited for what seems to be a microbrew style in a country dominated by big mass produced beer. Pours clear copper with a medium sized white head, very nice retention, some carbonation. A nice looking beer. Not a ton of aroma but some bready characteristics, a little bt of a grassiness, and some definite hop presence. The taste is lightly bitter with a very drinkable bready quality. There may be some rye tones to this with a slight oat. I’m calling this guy Good+

ectuohy27 (951) - ESTONIA - MAY 19, 2013
Lower points for disappointment than anything else ("gourmet unfiltered" beer, at a premium--for LIthuania--price?, and it turns out to be an especially hoppy, not terribly unfiltered PL? More hop notes and sharp malt than in the normal PLs, but by no means worth the upgrade

A simple brew with some nice qualities. I enjoyed the hop and bread characteristics. It had an odd, but pleasurable bitter. Good!

Clear yellow, white head. Aroma of bready malt, some yeast. Flavour is sweet malt, some cereal.

FatPhil (12733) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 22, 2009
UPDATED: APR 27, 2014 500ml bottle (Iki, Vilnius) (5:3:6:3:10=2.7)
Hazy pale gold, tiny head. Slightly more grainy and bready than your average Eurolager, a touch of honey or caramel too. Pleasantly carbonated, lively and crisp palate. Not a huge flavour by any means, but a fairly pleasant one. Mostly malt-focussed, bready, and a touch of honey and coconut, but pleasant hoppiness too, leaving a bit of a tingle in the finish. The flavour of the finish is back to breadiness again. Quality product, but very few lagers do much for me. IKI should be congratulated for all of their range of own-brand brews.
Rerate: 500ml bottle (Iki, Vilnius) (5:4:6:3:11=2.9)
Hazy straw, huge bready persistent head. Soft honey sweetness in aroma, vague grain hints, smells fresh. Nice unfiltered lager feel, decent carbonation. Lots more grains in the mouth, bready, gently fresh whole-flower hops. Just as I swallow there’s a bit of minerally swimming-pooliness. But otherwise the taste and feel is soft and refreshing. Bumping points somewhat.

Mamyte (18) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - FEB 22, 2009
A hazy golden amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma light malty, honey, fresh bread and candys. Fresh flavour with notes of honey, bread, lemon and hay. Very pleasant fresh-bread aftertaste. Unfiltered. This beer is made for a market chane IKI as one of 3 GURMAN beers.
