3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5l bottle courtesy of and shared with ozujsko (thanks !).
This poured a beautiful misty deep red colour with a medium sized thick white-going-tan head that went away at a medium pace. The nose surprised me. A huge, nice, aroma of (not artificial) pineapple struck me. It later on disappeared, and started being only toffee/caramel. Medium/light body with intensive (for the style), crude-ish hoppy bitterness and caramel. Naturally, hops dominate the aftertaste as well. A very interesting beer and a pleasant surprise. My first encounter with a Lithuanian beer went well. Would have called this a Vienna sooner than Märzen, but others know better I guess. Interesting... the numbers are quite similar to the two before it, and I’ve never seen those before (wrote the numbers down with my notes as I drank the beer).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear, deep amber with a cream-colored head that lasts awhile before breaking into foamy islands. Aroma of toffee and roasted malt with a prominent Euro-hop bite. Flavor is sharp with roasted bitterness atop a smooth & sweet caramel and honey base. Enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Excellent pour, a bright orange body with a huge, creamy white head. Decent lacing. The aroma is sweet toast with a touch of earthy bitterness. The flavor is bready, caramel sweet, with just enough hops to keep it from becoming cloyingly so. Possibly the best Lithuanian Oktoberfest bier that I’ve hd to date.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had this both in bottle and draught in Vilnius over the last weekend. An amber beer that is a little too sweet for my liking, also quite malty. Didn’t detect too much of an aroma. Fine enough but not great.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. A reddy amber coloured beer with no head. The aroma is sweet and malty with berry fruit and caramel notes. The taste is full bodied and nicely fruity. Quite rich and strong tasting, with good balanced sweetness. Really nice but nothing like any German maerzen I’ve had.
