2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear light gold with fizzy white head. Aroma of malt, grain and mild hop. Flavor is very much the same, a tad bit sweet. Mouth feel is light body and watery with high carbonation. Overall, well, it’s a pretty basic imported lager.

A few small particles. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of corn, grain, and light malt. Light body. Thin, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Corn, grain, and light malt finish. Pretty damn bad.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
I don’t know if this is a Dortmunder but it is a rather good and drinkable pale colored lager. Its color is golden yellow and it is capped by a thin white head which leaves behind lace in a complex web. Herbal hops are the main component in the nose along w/ a grassy grain husk maltiness. The hops take on a much more citrus sort of character once tasted. This is a light bodied beer w/ zesty but mild carbonation which suits the style perfectly along w/ a crisp, firm, pils-like bitterness in the finish. I am not sure if it’s simply a freshness issue but I had the regular Svyturys Ekstra not but a few weeks ago and it is no where near this good. This is w/o a doubt the very best Lituanian beer I have tried.

"Wow! That’s pale!" Was my first thought when I poured this beer from the bottle into my trusty Samuel Adams glass. Only slightly yellow, with no head retention. The aroma reminds me strongly of macro brews, full of rice and metallic tang. This beer is as light in texture as it is in color, watery and light in carbonation. The flavor has a brief sweetness, quickly followed by an overwhelming blandness, with metallic notes lingering afterward. The bottle is nice though...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 4 years ago.
Quite pale, with a high head, but short-lasting head.
Strong aroma, hoppy and malty, with a nice herbal note.
Nicely balanced hoppiness and maltiness in taste, plus this herbal component and the nice bready finish.
