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.

Mine was labelled "dark red", not "dark beer", and the bottle looks a bit different from the picture here. Anyway, this was my first Lithuanian beer and I was not impressed. Rich caramel dominates the flavor, and it tasted a little skunky - although to be fair, it could have been sitting on the shelf for quite some time. Some toffee flavor. No hops whatsoever. Not much aroma to speak of. Amber, with a whitish head that lingers nicely.

jjsint (2044) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2016
Bottle from random Eastern European shop in Bedford. Clear ruddy Amber, lots of carbonation. Light smell of caramel malt extract. Tastes sweet with a hint of smoke and stone fruit.earthy finish. Not a lot to this one really - what you see is what you get - but it is am easy-drinking beer.

glacier (143) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 3, 2016
Kolor herbaciany, wpadający w czerwień. Piana gęsta, obfita, szybko znika do małego kręgu. Zapach słaby, lekko karmelowy, słodowy. W smaku, trochę słodów, trochę karmelu, lekko wodniste. Szybko się pije, piwo ze średniej półki.

Vestergaard (1426) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - APR 22, 2016
50 cl bottle acquired in Netto, Løgstør, served in a dimpled mug in a beautiful sunset. Pours a reddish, clear amber with a big, off white, rather fizzy head. Aroma has caramel malts, pilsner malts, some sweet bready notes, light floral esters, light nutty. Taste is somewhat sweet, light metallic, rather dry, nutty finish. High carbonation and a somewhat light body. Despite the great circumstances, this doesn’t do very well.

Butelka 500ml. Ciemno brazowe - mahoniowe w kolorze . Piana niestety mala szybko redukujaca sie do obreczy. W zapachu duzo karmelu slodow i palonych cukrow. Rozczarowuje tekstura - wodniste co zabija to piwo.w smaku podobnie jak zapachu . Duzo karmelu cukrow i palonych slodow. NiezLe ale brakuje glebi i charakteru.

Całkiem udane piwo. Rodzynki, troszkę biszkopty. Ciekawa przygoda. Można się napić bez strachu.

W zapachu melanoidyny - chlebowo-pumperniklowe nuty, mila karmelowa podbudowa. W tle nieco siarki. Smak pelny, karmelowo-chlebowy, z wyczuwalnym chmielem. Dobry lager. Pijac go wyobrazalem sobie, ze tak smakuje Vienna Lager.

When I ordered that bottle I was pretty drunk but I do remember the dark ruby colour, caramel and dark malts in aroma, mild and a bit sweet taste. Overall it’s a nice beer and I like the brewery. A always buy some their beers if I see any nearby.
