3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Draft at Katedros in Vilnius.
Popcorn and makeup powder and iceberg lettuce aroma.
Suggestions of acetone / nail polish remover and hair spray.
Pasty, yeasty, starchy, silt-like.
To be fair, it does seem drier and more fermented than most sveisus.
Still has enough DMS / cabbage / lettuce notes to make in unpalatable.
Moderately creamy mouthfeel, carbonation is nice.
Subtle lemon hop flavor and aroma show up but can’t do much to save it.
Yeasty, tart and sour.
Smells like mom’s makeup bag.

vickey9 (412) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 6, 2012
Simple light beer smelling as an empty barrel in an simple brewery. Just malty and floral aroma, hops is missing. Very light, both body and palate. On tap @ Prie katedras in Vilnius.

Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2012
In short: A entry-level thirst blonde lager that is only pleasant because of its brewpub freshness
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy yellow blonde topped by a medium white head with medium retention
In long: The bright nose displays citric/lemony notes and fresh cereals. Taste has a lot of crisp crackery and straw-like cereals, a tiny bit of honey, a light tartness, a light citric/lemony tartness, some herbal notes. Short finish with a light bitterness. Very active carbonation. Miles away from the more traditional Lithuanian pale beers I had over there, this was more like a standard anywhere-on-earth brewpub thirst blonde lager. A pleasant treat because of the freshness that a brewpub beer can offer, but would probably be quite lame if it was bottled and available in a store. First actual brewpub we visited during that Lithuanian beer trip during which we drank beer all day long each and every day. They say the more you drink alcohol the more you develop tolerance, that’s not true, I know a big homebrewer from Ste-Hyacinthe who drinks a lot yet he still hates gay people.

TaktikMTL (5546) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2012
En fût. Pinte dégustée directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Légère odeur de céréales. Apparence: La couleur est blonde voilée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de céréales avec une pointe d’houblons. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de céréales en arrière goût. (Rating #4191)

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
My Bottom Line:
Hay-like cereals and herbal hops dwell in this unfiltered Helles-like frothy mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy straw blond.
-This doesn’t have any of the many characters seemingly intrinsic to Lithuanian brews, but it remains a nice, perhaps generic, blond lager.
-Light honeyed sweetness adds some depth.
-Herbal hop bitterness is present enough to dry up the finish.

On tap at the brewpub.

FatPhil (8564) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 9, 2011
Tap (Prie Katedros, Vilnius)
4 Very creamed corn maizy aroma - a touch vegetal.
3 Pale and hazy, small tight head.
5+ Simple malty body, quite bready and grainy.
3- Crisp palate, sharp carbonation. Dry, almost papery hoppy finish.
9 Passable unfiltered lager, but not a contender.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2011
Pale golden blonde pour. The aroma is quite sweet and a bit malty. Some light DMS and a bit of sweetness. Okay - if a bit worty.
