3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a two finger white head that that vanishes without a trace of lace. Crystal clear almost light amber color, unusual for a DB. Malt/nut nose. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor is sweet nutty malt. High ABV is hidden. Better as it warms. Cool label. $3.20 for a 500ml bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2010 Is Tennessee some kind of test market for Lithuanian brews? Seriously, why do we have beers from relatively obscure eastern European beers at Ma & Pa liquor stores? I am Bolshevik. I eat your rubles. My robot is the space adventure. 3.6 million people. That is the population of Lithuania. I love this bottle, it says "European Beer". The woman at the liquor store showed me the elf in Santa’s butt. Jesus, I just did something and my firefox is taking up the entire screen. Drinkable beer really. Cheap booze and melted caramel ice cream destroyer in the nose, sweet syrup caramel booze in the flavor.

Not bad at all, but also far from good. Caramel, sweet malt, and booze flavors. Tastes like part sweet malt liquor and part full bodied lager.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale gold in color with thin white head that dissipates to nothing. Nose is on the lighter side with some cereal grain and honey. On the palate the malt sweetness comes through nicely, perhaps with some light honey sweetness, and finishes with a kiss of alcohol warmth. More like a single bock than double.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear orange, no head. Sweet boozy aroma. Sweet boozy flavor. It gets a little drier as it warms, and note of honey as well. OK, I suppose.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. I’ve never had a doppelbock that was such a light color. A light golden, amber color. Didn’t have that strong malt flavor one might expect from a doppelbock either. Still, this wasn’t a bad beer. Aroma was similar to other beers brewed by Rinkuškiai. Flavor was caramel, bread with just a tad too much alcohol taste. Recommended at least once.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear pale gold with very little head. Aroma- (courtesy of Tom- wasp sperm, lilly butter, hot dog water) apple, bread, caramel, alcohol, spice. Taste is sweet and syrupy with a bitter roast finish. Malts are toasty and bready. Medium light body and low carbonation. Alcohol is a little boozy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gold-red, off white head. Aroma is bread and toast. Taste is caramel, toast, biscuit. By far the best beer I’ve had from these guys.
