3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Comes in nice 0.75l corcked bottle. Hazy wheat gold/ light amber color with ectremely lively white foam. Aromas do remind of lithuanian ales that I really like, yeasty, malty hints of corck and quite light and maybe smells bit dusty and of straw and grass, nice refreshing aromas. Palate, light body with thick and smooth rich texture, leaving strawy and yeasty aftertaste. Taste is dusty, flat and heavy on the tongue but beer it self is light. Would say quite a good fit for traditional Lithuanian ale, although is bit watery. Overall, I do really like it and enjoy drinking this bottle, this is somewhat of a Lithuanian taste I guess that I appreciate more than others would due to fact that my beer tasting journey started with these type of beers that are local and usual taste that I grew up with, they are not strong as Belgium Trappist beers, not sharp as IPA’s it is in a way bland/watery malty and easy "thing" That we drink in Lithuania (northern parts for sure) For me the taste is nice and it holds a traditional value. Also could have heavier body

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The Lithuanian Beer restaurant in Kyiv: Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is slight toast or sweet bread with maybe something like honey or sugar and hints of feuit. Taste is cleaner and more distinct than other Lithuanian beers. It is not totally muddled in sweet malts. Maybe even small hints of hops. Not bad.

First rating: Small offwhite slightly coarse head. Hazy deep yellow body. Light earthy strawy aroma with honey and meat notes. Definitely unusual. Dry-sweet earthy strawy taste with honey and plastic notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, slightly fizzy mouthfeel. Dryish mealy earthy honey aftertaste with spicy herbal notes. Very hard to describe, but good. Drinkable, refreshing, and different. (0.75l bottle, from Bamb Alynė, Vilnius. Bottle 2527, partijos 3115, kiekis 9602.) 6,4,6,3,14=3.3, July 2013
Second rating: Medium offwhite head. Hazy deep yellow body. Earthy oily mealy aroma with herbal notes. Sweet waxy mealy taste with herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish earthy plums and wax aftertaste with mealy spicy notes. Long, lingering sugary herbal aftertaste. Interesting, different, and drinkable. Quite complex. A good beer with considerable depth, but perhaps a bit too much paper. Quite rustic. (0.75l bottle at Bambalyne, Vilnius.) 6,4,6,3,14=3.3 July 2015.
