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.

dmac (5589) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2010
500 ml bottle purchased from Jonathan Ron Brielle. Poured a reddish/amber body with an average sized frothy off white head. Aroma is all sweet malts with notes of molasses, caramel, amber malts and honey topped unooked pilsbury dough along with slight plastic notes. Thinner to sightly medium bodied with fizzy stingy carbonation and a watery finish. Flavor is slightly better then the aroma with some lightly toasted...uhm toast, caramel, toffee, molasses and artificial sweetner. This was far beter then I was expecting and can easily be passed off as a decent domestic craft red ale, a little too sweet for an Oktoberfest in my eyes though.

Found the Beer in Lithunia, almost as good as HBH which basically became my favourite beer!

Frank (4007) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Well, at least this is actually dark in color unlike Svyturys Amber Ale which is the color of Budweiser. This pours a nice copper color w/ patchy lace left behind by the short lasting head. Nose is sweet floral and caramel--malty, almost aggressively so. This is oversweet and kind of gross, rather hard to finish the bottle I’m finding. Aside from that, there are no flavor flaws but that is a small comfort in this case. I guess this is somewhat in the style of a bock or something like that but is equally similar to a malt liquor, really.
