2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
19.2 oz can (1 imperial pint, 568ml), Rimi, Vilnius.
Aroma is very faint, almost lemony. Taste is extremely subdued, not at all hoppy as promised, but light and indeed almost refreshing. Sessionable, usable stuff at this price point

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I’m not sure what I’ve done to Lithuania that it treats me so mean. This is the second beer from the country that I’ve picked up in my government run liquor store in Toronto (home of Fat Man Rob Ford) & this brew just hurts my feelings. Why? Well cuz it sucks & tastes like balls dipped in sweet corn water. Also, cuz it calls itself a pilsner when it is really a pale lager. And worst of all, this mediocre swill gets shelf space in Canada instead of some interesting import or tasty local brew. Damn. That hurts. And here’s something no one is thinking about: how come there is only one rating from the home country (I know they’re active from the response to my last rating from Lithuania -- they agreed with my critique, by the way -- according to them, we get their shitty stuff via import while they enjoy the good). Avoid.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Medium yellow colour, mild taste, very thin texture, quite flat in carbonation
nice finish, but I wouldn’t recommend it

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Van de tap in een restaurant in Klaipeda. Goudgeel, aardige kraag, weinig aroma. Smaakt beetje bedorven, lichtfruitig. Bijna geen hop of mout smaak.
Niet zo goede pils

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2014 Commercial lager. Poor aroma, not very drinkable, with strong alcohol in taste.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
From a 500ml can. Fair airy white head, good head-lacing. Clear straw coloured body. Smell of fresh paint and mild lemon. Sweet lemony flavours joined by, again, paint and bready malts. Mid-sweet malty ending. Thin plus bodied. About drinkable (kindly shared by djoeye, Tromsø 27.02.2014).

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Scents; wet paint, fruits and spices. Two finger white top, clear golden body, just few lacings. Spiced taste, malts, sweet, not much hops, but dominating bread. Half dry. Finishes in a pool of bread and grains. Nyaaaahhh, hmm.... This "pilsener" goes into the category Pale Lager, I understand.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours clear golden liquid with first foamy then filmy head. Aroma of grain & hay, some grass. Thin texture & light body. The taste indefinite. Watery abrupt finish. Some malt sourness in aftertaste. It begins well and ends disappointing.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A pale yellow colour with a minimal white head. The head slowly faded. The aroma is hardly noticable; very fain grainy aroma. The palate is light but still marginally decent for what this beer is most likely going for. Flavour matches the aroma... light and grainy.
