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.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2008
A puffy cream resides on a shimmering sangria body. Strawberry jam coats firm biscuits; succulent malts leave space for a touch of basil. A juicy sweetness straddles mild fruity acidity and fades during a long finish awash in black pepper. Muscular carbonation keeps a fullish body and sticky texture in check.

Enjoyably robust; malty without distractions.

50 cl bottle, best before 01.09.2008.

Bottle brown, 500 ml
Baltijos has made a really great impression. Nice off-white head, dark amber colour, aroma is weak but beer is very well malted and caramelly, not offensive, not disturbing, flavour is wonderfull and balances malts and hop background, the right level of sweeetness, wonderful mouthtfeel, chewy, esential, bitter, focused. Like a kind of bottom fermented bitter. Aftertaste is great, gentle aromatic, hoppy nose and bitterness on palate. Medium bodied and medium carbonation, goes smoothly.

nuplastikk (4708) - 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 (5541) - 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.

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 (6526) - 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.
