COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tradicinė kolekcija
EKSTRA DRAUGHT is the first non-pasteurised beer pioneering the draught beer segment in Lithuania. This supreme premium beer of 5.2% alcohol volume is produced under a unique technology, which allows it to be produced without pasteurisation and is bottled in exceptionally designed unique bottles which preserve the flavour that could previously be enjoyed only in pubs. Therefore, mild in its flavour, this beer is easily drinkable.

harrisoni (17284) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle from Prince International Supermarket, Ashford. Pale gold lasting white head. Aroma reminds me of continental lagers I had when a child. EVen some lemon on the aroma. First beer of the day always tastes good. This has a little syrupy malt. But otherwise it’s clean, lemony and perfectly fine.

Bottle from Continental Food Store, Wakefield. Golden-yellow with an extremely thin head. Has an ordinary lager nose, and similar in taste, although it has an easy-drinking texture for its strength.

Aromat słodowy. Piana średniopęcherzykowa, nawet trwała. Barwa jasno złota. W smaku pełne, lekko słodkie. Wysokie nasycenie, goryczka niska. Ogólnie nic szczególnego, ale też da się wypić.

GoufCustom (1617) - HONG KONG - OCT 3, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2015

500 ml bottle bought at The magstore at Nathan Road, Jordan.

Pale golden colour; One finger head and white foam which lasts for 90 seconds; Poor sticky lacing with active carbonation; Pungent smell of malt, with floral, grains, light honey, faint wet cardboard, bread, lemon and grass; Medium sweet taste of moderate malt, with strong grains, floral, molasses, bread, lemon, light bitter hops and grass; Close to light body. Thin but quite slick palate; Mouth feel is lager maltyness - better than most Macro Pales - in a light background. Otherwise tastes more like a jacked-up Lager - floral, fair sweetness, bread and lemon - lacking the fullness and cookie-ness of typical Dortmunder somewhat. So-so… Hoppiness is floral, honey, lemon and grass in nose and somewhat stronger in taste. Bitterness is light for a lasting, low-fi astringent sweet grainy finish; Fairly dry after taste. Easy and sweet-malty to mouth.

Comments: The original Ekstra I had last year was so impressive and nice so I can’t believe this Draught turns out so flat and disappointing – leaner maltyness, strong grainy presence, poor looks and heads. More of a Premium Lager / Pale Lager hybrid than a usual Dortmunder or Helles, I will go back to the original Ekstra if I need one. Skip this one.

Gangstergafje (686) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2015
The beer is crystal clear. Some rough white foam forms on top of the beer, but it collapses quickly. The beer has a gold yellow color. The appearance is very much that of pilsener. The smell is quite simple, but not unpleasant. There is a nice bitter hop aroma, which is somewhat refreshing. There is also some grains clearly present in the smell. There is also a little sour aroma, I think it is also caused by the hops. It is nice. The taste is nice. The beer has a firm bitter base, filled with hoppy flavors. There is a tiny alcohol taste and in the distance there is a little metal taste. The metal doesn’t disturb the beer. It is really good along with the bitter and little sour hops. The taste is better than the smell, which was already quite nice. This beer is a really good brew by a really good brewer.
