400ml dark bottle from Polish supermarket in Southampton. Not sure how different this is to Kalnapilis Grand. The Grand is apparently 5.3%, and this is 5.4%. It’s a dirty looking beer. The taste is very watery with some fruit and a vague staleness. It’s drinkable, but not pleasant. Crude.

A mid golden amber coloured beer with a thick frothy white head. A light malty aroma, slightly syrupy, then a weak hoppy fruit aroma. Dry mouthfeel. The taste follows on from the aroma with a dry malty flavour followed by zesty, lemony hop flavour, both if which longer in a weak finish.

Thanks to erzengel! The beer pours a pale golden yellow with an off-white head. The smell is grain, mild fruit, grass. The taste is grain, cardboard, grass a bit dry and bitter on the end. Light in body with average carbonation.

Body is medium, soft carbonation, a little foamy. Taste is bready malt with some toffee, some vegetable, bubblegum, soft bitterness. Alright.

Thought that the Grand Select was an alias for Lacplesis Ekstra (same abv/style adn virtually the same logo), but it is in fact different--the first is paler in color, with a more chalky and less grainy/grassy taste; some slight citrus notes; the latter is (if slightly) darker, less foamy, and with more distinct grainy, even nutty, flavors. The Lithuanians win again, if barely!

Slaby niestety lagerek, nieprzyjemnie pachnacy kukurydza i w smaku takze syropowe, jakby syrop klonowy dodany, do tego niewielkie nachmielenie. Pozostaje tylko ladny wyglad piany, dosc trwalej o dziwo no i stylistycznej etykiecie. Ale to i tak niezbyt poprawiajace nastruj po tym piwie.
