3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle given by a friend. Reminds me of a cask beer like Innis and Gunn. Copper pour with a white head and lots of pearly layers of lace. Smells like carmalized malts. Tastes with a bit of bitter bite. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear copper hued gold. Normal head volume, poor retention and lacing.
Light lager style nose with a touch of cherry, apple and grape over a very mild biscuit. Alcohol is evident.
Light medium body with a nice somewhat creamy texture. Below normal carbonation with very little effervescence in the finish.
The flavor profile is good, but is too focused on the alcohol. The complexity of the nose has to struggle to be noted in the middle. Also in the middle, a solid biscuit sweetness arrives to attempt balance, but falls short due to alcohol. Underneath, this is a quite tasty lager that could approach outstanding if the alcohol were reduced to manageable levels. Not bad by any means, but as it is, just good. If you like alcohol forward brews, this one just might be in your wheelhouse.

Pours a cloudy, dark golden. Appears thick and syrup-like (much like honey). The flavor has a syrup-like quality. The alcohol is very forward. Has a slight bitter finish.

Every so often, perhaps once in a generation, a beer like this comes around. I remember when Kennedy strolled into the White House in his motorcade like a prince returning to Camelot--that, THAT is this beer rolling into my mouth all sudsy, hopeful, and doomed.

Bottle pour. Hazy golden with a large frothy off white head. Aroma is corn and sweet honey. Medium body. Sweet corn, light honey, and a sweet aftertaste. For the alcohol content, you can’t really taste the alcohol.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber color with a smallish off white head on there. Nose has a lot of corn in there and smells a bit of stale grains. Taste is old and not fresh and really tastes quite bad. Not good.

Lithuanian beer. It was very strong, in flavor and character. I guess it would have to be.
