568 ml can. BB 06/08/14. From a gas station in Pasvalys, Lithuania.
Clear golden colour with a tiny white head. Malt and sweetness in a mild aroma. The flavour is bitterness, farmyardy malt and sweetness. Bad. Unpleasant.

Directly from can. Weird malty aroma. Taste is raw, grainy, astringent husky. Bad, I dont like it.

568ml can. Fair chalk white lager head to a clear straw coloured body. Sweet earthy malts on the nose. Tasting notes of bread, butter and sweet apples. Dry and mid-sweet endnotes. Lively carbonated. Thin to medium bodied. About drinkable (kindly shared by djoeye, Tromsø 27.02.2014).

Sweet malts aroma, yellow apple. Chalky white tight top, pale golden clear baltic body, lacings there are. Tastes sweet malts, yellow apple, slicky grains, bread. Slippery but fruity to palate. Finishes earthy, and in the bread. (pint can 5.3% b@marijampole LT - tasted@RateMeet w Rune 2014Feb27)

rauchbier (3786) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2013
Can, from an ethnic food store in Scunthorpe. Gold, thin but sustained white head and moderate condition. Slight grainy honeyed sweetness and low hop notes in the nose, slightly fruity in the mouth with a touch of esters, short grainy sweet but uninspiring finish.

Grzesiek79 (3933) - Radom, POLAND - APR 26, 2013
w miare tresciwe piwo i wyrazne jak na styl lagerowy. Piana mala choc ma aspiracje do wielkiej czapy, ale nie udaje sie to. Kolor zolty. Smak slodowy troche podobny do czeskich pilsow.

ClubGonzo (5399) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 16, 2013
Can. Pours a light pale golden body with a small white head. Aroma is sweet maize tones, light malts and hints of DMS. Taste is pale malts, maize and hints of floral grassy hops and wet paper. Watery palate. Highly forgettable.

kevnic2008 (11220) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2012
Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Flavor is of corn, some sweet and roasted malt, and a little hops. This is not a great beer, but it is drinkable.

Marked "EE", so made at A le Coq, not Ragutis, and *certainly* not in a mythical "Volfas Engelman" brewery in Kaunas, as the lies on the label would lead you to believe.
Painfully pale (would be a 1), but a huge, fairly persistent head (so giving it 2). Almost no bloody aroma at all. Somewhere between watery and pissy, but the carbonation’s not too fizzy. Some esters in the retronasals, some lead paint and dirty bitter hops. Really bugger all taste. Some hint of seared pig fat. OK, they’ve filtered all the nastiness out of this, but they’ve filtered out all the beer too. Keep scrolling past this one.
