3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle bought at Scapa Scandia’s booth at HKCEC in Wan Chai during HKTDC Food Expo 2014.
Dull golden yellow colour; One-quarter finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 15 seconds; Moderate sticky lacing with very small but fizzy carbonation; Sweet aroma of malt, with light floral, dust, sugar, bread, light yeast and faint lemon; Light sweet taste of full malt, with faint grains, strong bread, light dough, very light lemon, very light bitter hops and light grass; Mid to light body. Slick and quite rich palate; Mouth feel is full lager maltyness in a pretty thick and rich body. Very low sweetness despite the presence adjunct rice, and you almost can’t feel it. Definitely Premium material’s here. Fluffy bread, light dough and licking low hops complete the picture. Good!... Hoppiness is very light lemon in nose and thin grass in taste. Very low-blow bitterness in background for a mostly malty and bready finish; Quite dry after taste. Very easy and rich to mouth.
Comments: I thought this was going to be a casual Baltic macro drain pours and was I wrong, big time: this is a rich, full malty lager akin to Helles or a Dortmunder, with nice aroma, very low sweetness and fulfilling soft breadyness. If the hops can be jacked up a bit more this will be perfect. Will buy again and Lithuania, tick!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a rich gold with a head that soon dissipates. Very lightly malty aroma. A more pleasant lager-style; none of the "metallic" flavour notes I don’t like, and has malty notes I do like.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
50 cl. bottle shared with Kraddel. Procured from Anna Maria. Very pale, totally clear golden with basically no head, the type of look that pale lager lovers tend to go for. Smells super-duper metallic, very chemical & cheap booze smell to it. Taste is extremely chemical, bitter macro hop pellets style fare, plastic, cold water corn, sticky, lightly oily. I prefer pale lagers to have as muted flavours as possible because they taste terrible (duh!) & this is super-duper outspoken, way too much, not fun at all.

Jasno złoty kolor, średnio obfita piana, szybko znikająca. Aromaty trawy, słodu. W smaku czuć nuty trawy, przypraw oraz słodowe. Piwo bardzo pijalne i przyjemne.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This gold lager pours with a small white head that dissipates quickly. There are small hints of hops and malt in the bouquet and taste, which also has some sweet corniness. It has a nice, smooth finish. There’s nothing special about this 5.2-per cent alcohol Lithuanian beer, but it’s a decent summertime quaff when you’re just looking for something simple to relax with.
