Tradicinė kolekcija
Baltijos is the oldest brand of Lithuanian beer, and is the oldest brand of beer produced by the brewery Svyturys, since 1965. Baltijos, which is strong beer of dark amber colour, stands out with brownish and particularly thick foam, rich and sweetish taste of caramel, which is felt in the mouth for a long period of time. Baltijos won the bronze award at the World Beer Cup in the category of German-style Märzen/Oktoberfest.

nuplastikk (4565) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 30, 2008
500ml bottle. Brown-orange color, with a nice lively head. First ex-Soviet Block Marzen I’ve had to my knowledge. This is quite a pleasant surprise. Full and rich, with lots caramel malt sweetness. Very fresh tasting. There is, however, a slight adjuncty presence in the finish, perhaps sugar. Pretty good beer, worth a try.

SaintMatty (5380) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2008
500ml Bottle- Copper brown in colour with a large head. Pleasant fruity aroma with raisins detected along with caramel and a noticeable but but very strong alcohol smell. Bitter, fruity taste with caramel and raisins giving a pleasant aftertaste. Quite nice.

Clear brown-orenge colour. Bubbly, fading head. Aroma is little malty, fishy, grainy. Little roasty, little bitter, little flavour.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2007
My second surprise tonight. I go from a "harvest " beer being an APA to a euro dark being an Oktoberfest. Hazy copper color with a moderate cream colored head with some light lacing. Sweet caramel aromas, with some additional scents of sorghum and light floral hops. Sweet malt and caramel in the flavors as well. So sweet for me. I prefer a crisp, clean, toasty oktoberfest. This one seems to slide between a bock, an oktoberfest and a vienna. The flavors become more spicy as is warms. Also seems to have a touch of metal in the finish and linger.

downender (6360) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2007
Bottle. Amber colour with a decent, off-white head. Powerful malt aroma with a touch of fruit. Flavour was of caramel and black bread. The finish was dry with a slight hint of corn starch. Ok.

Gr0ve (2140) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 7, 2007
500 ml bottle. Light brown colour. Tall off-white head. Paperlike aroma with notes of rubber. Bold malt sharpness with a hint of esters. Smooth texture, but there is quite a lot of carbonation here. Grainy flavours can be detected. Nice beer, but it struggles a bit in the aroma department.

Bottle. Very strong barley malt aroma - like whiskey wort. Amber color with a moderate head. Sour barley malt. Has an unfinished quality to it.

FatPhil (9405) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 14, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2012 500ml bottle (?, Vilnius) (4:3:6:3:11=2.7)
Pours dark amber, with a thin head. Aroma was a little like flavoured pencil erasers, a bit blossomy. Initial mouthfeel is good - sticky creamy maltiness, but as soon as you swallow the alcohol comes over. Pleasantly malty, but not very well polished.
Rerate: Tap (?, Vilnius) (5:3:4:2:9=2.3)
Caramelly aroma. Looks caramelly too. Brief fizzy head. Caramelly taste too - some bloody iron too. Hops are cheap and extracty - just a metallic bitter tingle. Some dirty caramel too, and more iron. Meh.
