3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 bottle. Very hazy, dark orange/light brown color and no head to speak of. Sweet aroma not surprisingly composed mostly of rye, honey, and bread. Taste is very sweet as well and also marked by the presence of rye and honey, pretty simple but pleasant. Light body, thin texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is medium long at most and is a diluted version of the taste. Overall the beer has an interesting and enjoyable taste but it is watery and lacks a proper palate.

Piwo żytnie, bardzo cienkie, wręcz wodniste. Żyto wniosło bursztynowy kolor i zmętnienie, plus lekki posmak ziemisty. Cała reszta pozostaje eurolagerem. Słabo, acz pijalnie.

butelka 1l. Fajne piwko, świeże, smaczne i zdrowe :). jednak oceniam je trochę niżej od innych litewskich niepasteryzowanych niefiltrowanych piw z kótkim okresem przydatności i reżimem przechowywania w niskiej temperaturze choć i tak warte polecenia.

Pop top bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small white head that dissipates quick. The aroma has some rye bread, honey, grapes. The taste has some sweet fruit, spicy rye, funky finish.. Nearly a wild yeast finish.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
9th October 2012
Cloudy amber beer. Palate is fairly dry and crispy. Mildly spicy malt with a subtle banana ester. Unfortunately also soapy things. Minerals and subtle citrus. Finishes crisp. The soap really detracts.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (at Bambalyne).
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is dark yellow to light amber.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cereal), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with notes of lemon taffy, gum, kumquat.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly raw/husky.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
This would prove to be the last drinkable beer of the trip to Vilnius...from here things went tragically downhill as beer after beer at bar after bar would be nothing but glassfuls of sadness. This particular beer started off better than it finished, initially promising to be a halfway decent Belgian-ish golden ale, but as it warmed it devolved into a slightly saccharine and somewhat raw beverage that I could not finish my glass of. Perfectly fine if you drink it fast and cold without thinking too much about it, though, which is about as good as you can expect.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smalls a bit unusual for a beer, but pleasant: bread and barnyard (straw). Pours orange, cloudy with minimal head that quickly disappears. Bitterness is low, but pleasant, beer is lightly sweet, with notes of black rye bread. Medium body, flat carbonation. Definitely not for hop-heads, but for me it’s really ok due to the unusual "countryside" aromas - not the best Lithuanian beer, but really decent. 50cl bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Bambalyne in Vilnius, best by August 2013.
Hazed golden orange body.
Tall-building white head collapses into a ring.
The best-looking beer of this Lithuanian visit.
Similar in appearance and aroma to some type of Belgian farmhouse golden ale.
And it actually smells quite nice: wheat, pale grains, tropical fruit, wax, spicy phenols.
Juicy / pulpy / semi-sweet orange approach.
Sharp, bracingly dry finish is thin / airy / marshmallow-y.
No strong flaws, very interesting and fun to smell and taste.
All flavors and aromas are very expressive.
Low acid / low bitterness / low sugar.
