500 ml bottle as Rinkuškiai Rinkuškių Piliakalnio. BB 20/02/15. (Elisiejus) Saločiai, Lithuania
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Typical Baltic lager sweetness and maltiness in the aroma. The flavour is pretty much the same. Honey sweetness and unpleasant bitterness. Sweetness and bitterness in the aftertaste.

Odd sweet marzipan, some hint of pulses too, in the aroma. Some marzipan also in the taste. Simple and clean. Being 6%, this has just a bit more body than the weaker filtered ones, so I prefer it. The winner is the unfiltered one though.

My Bottom Line:
Green hop subtleties dwell within this lean, dry brew, as faint banana esters make their way into honeyed malt flavors.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the clear pale blond.
-This is as clean as all other Rinkuskiai brews.
-I don’t see why I would drink a 6% brew with the same flavor profile (very nearly) and body as their 5% Proginis.
-The flavor profile is too timid and near blandness to warrant a revisit soon.

On tap at the brewery restaurant.

Golden yellow. Aroma is light hoppy. Flavor is some sweet and light hoppy finish.

Golden, sparkly. Rich saaz aroma. Palate, though, is lightish and slightly sweet. At least the pale malt flavour is very clean, but only a faint background of hops after that aroma?

Sampled draught at Biržai Beer Festival.
Pale golden, clear. Hoppy, sweaty aroma. Medium sweet, fruity but not estery. Medium sweetness. A bit boring.
