visionthing (2733) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2014
25cl on tap at the brewpub. Clear amber with a white head. Quite anonymous aroma, some grainy notes and hints of honey, but fairly weak. Medium sweet with light grainy flavour with hints of honey and some bitterness in the finish. Fair enough.

KyotoLefty (6450) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 25, 2013
Tap at Grill Inn. Glowing orange-brown with a low, fine head. Very cloudy. Nose of honey and orange. Tangy, dry flavor, honey, grains, orange. Dry, tangy finish. Good.

Ernest (6218) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Draft (at Alynas). Head is mostly diminishing. Body is cloudy light to medium amber. Aroma is notes of "circus peanuts" candy, diacetyl, and cement. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, raw/husky, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Another typical example of Lithuanian craft brewing...lots of diacetyl, sourness, and dirty off characters. Almost impossible to drink. Sampled many other draft beers while at this pub, and only the Alynas house beer was even remotely drinkable (which apparently the locals are not that fond of!)...the rest were absolutely repulsive, showing that bottle freshness was not our problem at Bambalyne. We even went to the Katedros brewpub afterwards, just to see if things were as bad right at the source (yep). So, these are apparently the desired characteristics by locals...which of course opens the question of whether these so-called flaws are flaws at all. If they are intentional (much like how many Americans *prefer* Heineken to be skunked), then who is to say this isn’t how the beer is *supposed* to be?

3fourths (8023) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Draft at Alynas in Vilnius.
Honey and caramel malt aroma.
Distinct wet dog hair / dirty lake water.
Pasty yeast powder texture; starchy and husky malt.
Low carbonation, low acid = flabby body.
Red apple skins and orange jelly and caramel hiding behind the game-y pet hair notes.
Sour finish.

kiwianer (3339) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 19, 2013
The head is medium, the body brown and cloudy. It smells mild, malty, little, bit honey. The taste is malty, sweet, less honey. 10/8/9/9/-/9

mzaar (1608) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2012
Honungsfärgad öl med svagt vitt skum. Honungen går igenom i både smak och doft. I den förra finns också blommighet, i den senare hittas citrus och gräs dessutom. Frisk.

vickey9 (470) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 6, 2012
Hazy amber, offwhite head. Honey and malty and floral aroma. Light body,medium carbon. Honey on palate, notes of banana. Rather sweet but also a gentle bitter finish. On tap @ Prie katedras brewery in Vilnius.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2012 In short: A basic low-sweetness hay-forward hop-free amber beer. Drinkable but forgettable
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy golden amber body topped by a medium off-white head
In long: Nose is toasted hay with fresh cereals and a tiny bit of a countryside/henhouse character. Taste has a good amount of toasted hay, light toasted wood sensation, a tiny bit of honey and caramel. Finish leaves a dried hay after-taste. Surprisingly not sweet at all considering this is a honey beer and there is no hop bitterness to speak of. On one hand it was a bit closer to the true Lithuanian beers but on the other hand there was something missing in the big picture. Easy to drink but also quite forgettable. I slightly preferred their blonde lager. Nothing special about this beer or this brewpub in particular except that it is very far away, there are times when I travel I feel like everywhere is just a variation of everywhere else.

MrW (420) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - APR 4, 2012
50 cl @ Prie Katedros. Roasted, bread aroma. Orange/Amber color. Roasted bread, sweet taste but no honey in my opinion. Strange dry aftertaste.

Légère présence de céréales en arrière goût. (Rating #4193)
