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.

Metallic hops and some caramel malt flavours. Not too bad for an amber but not super original either.

The bottle grabbed my interest, which is always a way to explore beer one might otherwise pass by. A ’Dark Red’ Oktoberfest-style beer out of Lithuania, eh? No fear. Pours a reddish amber with minimal head. Aroma is mild, sweetness there. Flavour doesn’t really jump out at me either. Starts off with a nice bit of hops, but instead of coming out with some balancing malt, it just sort of goes to cardboard bland. I have had worse, but this is not that great.

thirstyrabbit (1433) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle. Copper body, medium head. Sweet aroma with some buttery malts. Well, this is Lithuania. Sweet caramelly taste with milky notes. Dry metallic hops in the finish. Pretty similar to their "Old Port Ale". Good enough for the price if you prefer at least some kind of character over the sterile eurobeers.

martjoobolut (1561) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 25, 2014
0,5L bottle. Pours red copper with light tan head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is caramel, malt, grains. Flavor is sweet and bitter, caramel, grains, malt, some iron. Finish is malty bitter and some alcohol. Overall: maybe a little bit too sweet and alcohol is not very well covered, but it’s drinkable.

From a bottle. Pours cloudy copper with a bubbly beige head. Tastes very malty, like raisin, dry apple, grapes. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sour raisin, doughy malt, dry apple and grapes.

GoufCustom (1064) - HONG KONG - AUG 22, 2014

500 ml bottle bought at Scapa Scandia’s booth at HKCEC in Wan Chai during HKTDC Food Expo 2014.

Clear amber honey colour; Three-quarter finger head and off-white foam which lasts for 1 minute; Small sticky lacing with quite fizzy carbonation; Aroma of amber malt, with moderate caramel, faint musty, rye bread, strong yeast, thin lemon and very light grass; Near-zero sweet taste of full amber malt, with caramel, shades of mustiness, hint of alcohol, strong dark bread, yeast, shades of lemon, thin bitter hops and very light grass; Close to light body. Slightly Slick palate; Mouth feel is solid, malty Amber backbone with very little roast. Quite dry and lean with strong dark bread come through. Hint of booze to tease and very faint, Dunkel-like mustyness does not distract. Good!... Hoppiness is thin lemon and grass in nose and taste. Close to zilch bitterness in background for a mostly Amber-malty and dark bread finish; Very dry after taste. Very easy to mouth.

Comments: This is another solid one from Švyturys - the best about it is near-zero sweetness, with is perfect for a boozed-up style like Maerzen. Plus its good dry caramel-based malty character makes it highly enjoyable for meals. Lack of hops is the minus. Overall a likeable one!
