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.

Drank in Korea, so anything better than Hite/Cass etc was great. Remember it being one of the better beers and difficult to find.

reebtogi (4035) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 13, 2014
500ml bottle pours amber in color with a 2 finger off-white head that has decent retention leaving some nice lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is caramel with some grassy notes. Taste is a grassy and spicy hop bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness. Medium body with decent carbonation. Comparable to most of the German Oktoberfest style brews, decent taste and recommended for others to try.

halapablo (75) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 9, 2014
ciekawy smak, bardzo fajnie się prezentuje i w butelce i w kuflu, ale nie moja bajka - zostawia zbyt długo posmak goryczy. Co prawda pije po terminie przydatności więc dam mu szansę jeszcze raz i wypiję świeżutkie

JulienHuxley (2852) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle at Mr Hangover’s Nieuwjaarsborrel. Clear amber pour, small off white head. Caramel aroma, toasty, spicy. Mild flavor, sweet, light toastiness, a tad watery. Palate is light, med carbonation. Quite OK actually, nothing wrong with this beer except for the fact it’s a bit bland.
