Bottle. Ok, not the best beer ive had but not the worst. Mostly grains with a thick boozy feel. Decent bit of heat on the finish. Meh.

500 ml bottle
A well meaning gift from a friend, there’s not much to say about a boring Eastern European beer whose best feature is the label. Perhaps I should have stopped there. For best results split with a dozen friends; a small pour is all you need to get a sense of this below average booze bomb.

Aroma / Appearance - A transparent base lies flat and limp with a listless head. Grainy malts deliver the message that this provides little more than a full burst of alcohol. Thankfully though the plain vanilla experience disappears in mere seconds.

Flavor / Palate - Dried gum scraped from underneath a desk pairs with stale caramel chews. The mercifully quick finish saves the palate from abuse. The only thing a full bottle will provide you is a cheap hangover if you keep going after more than one.

Malty sweet smell, taste is the same...quite sweet and medium hot alcohol burn...some depth but not great

phaleslu (9017) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2015
500 ml bottle from Macklind Ave. Deli. Pours a somewhat cloudy orange gold with a small off-white head that forms bubbles on one side and eventually some stray chunks of film. Notes of extremely sweet cereal, corny and sugary, with butterscotch and booze. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a very sweet and boozy mouthfeel. Unpleasant, to be sure, but not the worst from this awful brewer. Also, great deScription here: "This naturally fermented beer has the highest alcohol content in the Beer Country." Ha!

Let me begin with a comment on the ratings of this beer. As the sagacious Jiddu Krishnamurti has said it best, "It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society." This, my friends, is a salubrious offering of the highest degree. Ever wonder how mountain monks live to be 100+ years old? They import.

Without a doubt my first Lithuanian beer, surprised to find such an offering in South Carolina, shout out to "Bottles" beer wine and spirits in Mt Pleasant SC for having such an impressive selection! That being said, this brew overall was not too enjoyable, rather sickeningly sweet, cotton candy-like. Booziness throughout, but not obscenely so considering the high ABV. Some notes of banana, apricot, some yeasty flavors kind of like a Belgian beer, but definitively had the heavy malty sugariness of a bock beer. No hops, only bitterness from the alcohol. Very sweet and appropriate as a novelty dessert beer, but otherwise not exceptional. Belgian tripel - doppelbock crossover, courtesy of Lithuania.

mrmartin (780) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 15, 2015
Tastes like weirdly old apple juice with an aftertaste of malt liquor. Clear Golden Pour with no head. Nose is indistinct and faintly sweet. Flat body. Notes of burnt honey. Boozy bittersweet finish. Not going to pour it down but bleech

Sampled at esbls. Clear with some golden hue. Not a lot of aroma. Sweet flavor with adjuncts. Not great.

badpuppy69 (320) - orange, California, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Pours a slightly cloudy gold light Orange color small creamy head. Aroma is. Citrucy sweet apricots slight caramel. Taste follows the aroma with a slight alcohol note followed with some apricot mango and prune notes. Not bad but not great. Taste more like apricot juice than beer.

Bottle pour. Cloudy golden with almost no head. Sweet malty aroma, with grain, corn, and light caramel. Thick full body. Sweet grainy taste with strong alcohol finish.

Bottle. Gold with a white head. Smells like circus peanuts and weird alcohol. Surprisingly ok. Sweet honey and a boozy burn.
