0.5 l bottle from Vilnius airport. Too close to making love in a canoe, although tastes a bit better than the pasteurised Extra. Nice bottle though.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml Bottle (£1.59, Eastern European Foods, Glasgow):
Corn & light, cheap lager malts along with a slightly skunky aroma and some lingering sweet malts. There is a touch of grass hops in there as well.
Light, golden amber colour with a tiny, white head that quickly turns to a patchy lacing.
Sweet, tangy hops and again some light malts that are relatively sweet in flavour. There is some corn, bread and a general, cheap lager taste.
Light & quite smooth with a slightly spicy tang and moderate carbonation coupled with a light bitter finish.
Another below average beer and nothing more than a cheap, industrial produced pale lager that doesn’t do enough to hold your attention or keep you interested past the first sip.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
We organized a very interesting tasting of Lagers (basic to average quality): 16 different beers from different countries. Price range: from EUR 0.3/bt (supermarket) to EUR 3.5/bt (take-away at sushi bar). All beers have been blind-tasted; we were 4 people, great beer lovers and wanted to know If there is a difference between all these basics summer beers. Answer: no, all were more our less watery, the worst were shit. Svyturys Ekstra Draught was not too bad (fourth best one)
