Biržiečių Classic – stout beer, 8 % alc. It is classical Beer Country beer. Rich taste, slightly tinted with caramel malt. Special beer yeast is used for the production of this beer.

Copper color,monster short lived head. Aroma is grains and slightly burnt toast with some toffee. Tastes how it smells with a slightly dryish old attic dust finish.

muzzlehatch (4769) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 10, 2006
500 ml bottle from Royal Liquors on State Street, Rockford IL (Dec 2005). Served a bit above cellar temperature, pint glass. It’s Lithuanian beer night, part 3! Clear copper with a touch of head that lasts after the fluffy, quick-decaying billows that erupt at first...nose is very faint, almost impossible to distinguish more than a touch of toasted malt...perhaps a bit of plastic....flavor is sweet though not as cloying and over-the-top as the previous Rinkuškiai beers I tasted, lightly toasty and faintly herbal, with some woody character and perhaps a bit of anise, caramel....alcohol not really prominent but more noticeable towards the somewhat harsh, medicinal finish. Rough, but drinkable.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2006
I would’ve pegged this traditional Lithuanian beer as a Märzen. Bright copper in body with a slender white head, the aroma is sweet caramel & toffee with a bit of earthy hopping. Creamy and full-bodied, it has a rich caramel malt flavor, a bit of toast, all neatly balanced with a light hop bitterness. Finishes on a sweet malty note. This is a repeater.

PorterPounder (7332) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Killearn Liquors, Tallahassee, Fl - 500 ml bottle. Dark orange to light copper pour with a wisly off-white head, quite thin. Sweet aroma, hints of caramel and candied sugar and baked brown bread - nice. Sweetness carries over to the flavor with some toffee notes, day old coffee and a hint of chocolate. Back end of alcohol with a slight burn. Has some winter warming - brandy-like qualities. Mouthfeel just a tad too thin for the style but still a decent rib sticking ale, great for winter drinking.

Aurelius (5070) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Sugary sweet, straw malt aroma with a volatile floral component. I caught a whiff of licorice or anise in there at times. Pleasant. Medium rusty brown. Boozy, nut/alcohol bitter, flavor is drier than it smells initially, but then sweetens up. Initially, dark syrup, straw and pecans in a finish that reminds me of pralines or some such thing, fading into a walnut or pecan bitter aftertaste. Medium weight. Marzen-ish.

thegreenrooster (4003) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 13, 2005
Pour is a amber with a small white head. Aroma is malty and brown sugar. Flavor is toffee and sugar with malts making and an appearance in there. A decent brew and the price was right at only $1.69 for an 18 oz bottle.

badgerben (4869) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Copper color with no head. Kind of a dull spice mixture in the aroma (cloves and allspice?). Odd mixture of malt and what struck me as vegetables in the taste, likely potatoes. Bitter finish.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2005
Thin head, clear golden body. Light grainy, toasted, buttery aroma. Taste is sugary, corn with solid alcohol presence. Some metallic notes. Finish indicates hops may have been used to make this beer. Watery body. Very pale lager-ish.
