Sampled draught in Biržai
Clear reddish amber colour. Fruity, yet clean. Medium bodied with low-medium bitterness. Very drinkable considering it’s size, but I would have liked some more flavour.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is clear medium amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a light note of peach.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter, slightly husky.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Not much to counteract the sweetness, but at least a little cleaner and fuller tasting than the Baro Trad. Not bad. Like a premium lager with some color in its cheeks.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours amber with a white head. Smells of caramel and very yeasty. Tastes overly sweet with a lot of sugary undertones. Mouthfeel is thick with a finish that reminds me a bit of malt liquor. Not all that exciting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Poured a true amber with a thin head. Slightly burnt caramel aroma. The flavor is thickly sugared, molasses and cooked sugar ... you can taste the alcohol. Quite a hefty brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Its the color of Iced Tea (not to be confused with Ice-T), with almost no head. Decent aroma - woodsy, a bit tart, a bit citrusy. Kinda remonds me of tonic water. A bit smoky flavored, some caramel, some alcohol. Not that bad, actually.
