1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden-bronze colour with no head. Aroma of alcohol, toasted grain, and some DMS. The flavour is balanced between very sweet caramel/toast malts and a stiff woody alcohol finish. (He said "stiff woody"). It’s reasonably drinkable for a high-test Eurobrew.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Big Star in Seattle. Pours brassy gold with a small white head. Aroma is sweetly bready, lightly fruity, perhaps a bit grassy. Flavor is bready, corny, grassy. It’s more sweet than not. Difficult to integrate into my perception.

Deep gold pour, white head. Sweet aroma. Some apple juice, canned fruit, honey. Flavor is sweet as hell. Tastes kind of like fruit punch sweetened with sweet n low. Weird as hell.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500mL bottle. Poured clear, medium golden with a fairly uniform white head. The aroma picked up sweet corn and honey with spicy raw alcohol and light vegetal notes around.. prickly and hot on the back of the nose. The flavor found honey and corn again on the sugary core.. hot all around with alcohol burn.. hard-to-place bitterness joined more boozage on the sharp finish. Medium-bodied, prickly, and hot on the palate.. not an enjoyable drink.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle. "Traditionally Aged" Lithuanian beer.
Pours a bright orange/gold with tons of tiny bubbles racing towards the top to a creamy white head that lasts awhile.
The smell is odd. t is ultra sweet and boozy, it has an almost perfume-like booze character and light fruitiness and various sugars.
The taste is super sweet,barelywine flavor with no sign of hops. Theres thick caramel, butterscotch, and fruit flavors. The alcohol is highly noticeable.
It is a bit cloying but not quite over the edge.
It is a high octane brew, it seems like a strong ale in a lager’s suit.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bright, deep amber-gold with little head, short-lived. Sweet-smelling, fruity but insipidly sweet cereal aromas. Flavors are the same: plastic. Sickeningly sweet palate. Tastes strong, sweet, alcoholic, and masculine. Blech, get drunk fast please.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a transparent typically carbonated orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malty and grassy. The semi-thick mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt and orange. Not one that I would buy again.

Imagine dumping a pack of Sweet’n’Low into a glass of tonic water. Sampled at Stevofest, and tronraner is the responsible for bringing it.
