500ml can, kindly shared by djoeye. Frothy white head, dissipating. Lacing rings down the glassware. Pale golden body. Vague grassy nose, vapour of alcohol. Mid-dry flavours of grainy malts and a little touch of fruits. Ends up with sweet metallic alcohol. Drain pour (Tromsø 17.01.2014).

50 cl alu-can 7.3%abv b@supermarket in Marijampole Lithuania.
Diminishing off-white head on pale golden body.
Berries, fruits, sweet malt, and alcohol to the nose.
Malt, spirited malt to the tongue.
Tendencies to dryness to palate.
Finally sweet bread, and that was it, a boozer.

Following a Baltic porter, this isn’t as bad as the scores and reviews would lead you to believe. Grain sweetness prevails, aroma is wheat and some citrus. Taste is mostly white bread, with a hint of citrus. No alcohol burn as would be expected. Better than rated.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flaske delt med Willy (som hadde den med fra Vilinus) og Egil: lite aroma, og en smak som minner meg om polske øl - kan det være humlen? En ok eksportøl som man ville sagt før, men heller ikke noe mer.

.5l bottle from alko muurame
Pours clear golden with medium high, big bubbled white head. Aroma is alcohol, grass, malts and hops. Flavor is mostly same. Alcohol bites a bit too much.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale Yellow Color, Small Head, Decent Lacing. Straw aroma. Grainy, Malt, Slightly Sweet, Modestly Bitter Finish. Medium Body and carbonation. A lot smoother and not as sweet as Kalnapilis 7:30, which makes easier to drink, although both of them have same ABV. Nothing too bad, nothing too memorable. Decent for what it is.
Earlier Rating: 6/27/2013 Total Score: 2.5
Pale Clear Yellow, Small Head, Almost no Lacing. Straw aroma. Taste about same: sweet straw, malts, light bitter and alcohol zing. OK for what it is. Although I’m not sure of its purpose. Then again, this is not exactly my favorite style.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Strong grassy aroma. Clear pale yellow in color. Medium bodied head which clings to the glass as it dissipates. Sweat, grassy, alcoholic taste that’s okay at best. The best thing about this brew was the smell.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle 50 cl. Golden color with medium fluffy head. Taste is marzipan, grass, spices and boozy. The boozy taste covers up much of the other taste after a while. Not that bad, but is really not that enjoyable.
