"A crystal clear golden beer that crowns a glass with a frothy head of dazzling white. A deep hop aroma and a rich long lasting flavour that is underscored by a light, barely perceptible hint of hop bitterness."

I started a review of this one back in March and then forgot about it. Itís kind of easy to see why. Poured a very light yellow with a smallish white head that diminished entirely. Aromas were dry with some burnt grain and grass. Flavor was lightly bitter with some sourness late and a clean, crisp finish (I wrote down the word "snappy", but I donít know what that means). Better than average, but only slightly.

09.02.05 500ml bottle. Just hazed pale straw with thin but lasting head of odd little foamy clumps. I can hardly smell anything except for a distant vague aroma of sweet grains. Flavor is also hardly detectable except for a grassy metallic tang. If the goal was to produce a palyer in the world of flavorless beer, this one can compete with Michelob Ultra. I canít believe how highly this beer is rated. Nonsense.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2005
Light yellow color, no head. Sweet, mildly skunky Eastern Europe aroma. Medium bodied. Crispy, sweet flavor, ends with medium hops. Flavor has some fruits too. Hops make ending dry, dryness lasts.

yngwie (15606) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2006 Bottle. Svyturys Extra poures a light yellow colour that is a little cloudy. Aroma of light malts, wheat, citrus and banana. The taste is more sweet and sour than bitter, with the same elements as in the aroma. Not a very good beer, but absolutely drinkable, especially in the summertime, as it is refreshing. (050830)

piscator34 (2178) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 23, 2005
Medium yellow in colour with lots of carbonation. Light malt aroma, with some veggie hop thing going on too. Light bodied, with a somewhat coarse bitterness. Slightly fruity flavor, along with more veggie hops. Not very good.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2007 Bottle (500ml). Poured a very pale clear yellow with an enormous soapy looking freakishly white foamy head. I was afraid the lacing might be permanent, or a CIA mind-control device. Mild aroma - I get small almost equal portions of yeast, mild hops, sweet mild sugary malt, a little sweet tree fruit in there too. Gets nose-crinklingly vegetal as it warms. Taste - well, there isnít much. Very icing sugar sweet, some artificial gummy bear pear and banana, almost imperceptible hops; make sure you drink it before it warms up. Mouthfeel is a just watery. Not awful, but any beer you have to serve at the surface temperature of one of Neptuneís moons is to avoided on principle.

Slight sweet malty aroma. Pours a light yellow, not too bad of a head. Cornish tasting. Some hops, but barely there. Average at best.

Mild and bland (but not falvorless) Lithuanian import. Seems to be a local fav among some friends, but Iíd call it another beer in a bottle. Not terrible, but there are many other, better, beers out there.

Ok very different then what I have had before. Slightly bland and watery there is a bready malty taste and I think I tasted some pear like notes. A little hoppy but not too much it is drinkable. I think I would like it if only the flavor was a little stonger as it is very distinct.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Light yellow hue with some decent lacing. The aroma is bready, with a classic lager type yeast. Slightly grainy. Light flavor dominated by malt and grain (rice?). Drinkable, and not bad. Way too much adjunct texture though. Iíve had much worse, and much better.
