omhper (19233) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2004
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.

Bright copper colour. Sweet, toffeeish, with a sugary aroma. Hard, minerally body with caramelly notes. Sweet, slightly wet finish.

Tmoney99 (10467) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2007
Bottle from Belmont Party. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Moderate fruity malt and alcohol aroma. Medium body. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short duration. Drinkable high alcohol brew.

BeerandBlues2 (9457) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a small, rocky, white head, somewhat lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, caramel, toffee, nutty), average hop (flowers, grass), average yeast (earth, broth) with notes of date, apple, and cola. Medium bodied, slick texture, lively carbonation, and a chalky finish. Average duration, moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 12, 2008
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.

Ernest (6160) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2005
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.

Braudog (5596) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAR 17, 2006
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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 12, 2007
Bottle: Mahogany brown, no head or lacing. Nose of fig, bright fruit and alcohol, some chewy dark malts. The flavor is similar and a bit of sherry, sweet and chewy. Toasty tail. Meh.

Cornfield (5460) - 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 (5367) - 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.
