"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."

Explosive carbonation on this bottle,Cloudy golden color,large white head that faded slowly then faded to a nice lace.Grainy aroma with some hints of fruit and also coming off as being a little sweet.The flavor is nothing special though a bit medicinal in the beginning lots of carbonation giving it a slight acidic feel on the pallate.The taste is kind of grainy with some hops coming on in the end and a mild bitterness.Not something iíd care to try again,in fact i think the Baltas was better,because this one is getting sickening fast.Just plain Yuck.

Ho-hum. Although I like Lithuanian beers quite a bit (truly!), this tasted somewhat metallic and yeasty in an odd way. Straw-colored and tasting sort of Eastern European-weird. I probably shouldnít be surprised that I could taste a hint of alcohol in this brew. Iím sort of used to that from brews that are of lesser quality.

Bottle. Light straw coloured with a thick white head. Aroma has grain, some sweetness and not much else. Something a bit disturbing about the taste; sweet, some light bitterness, a bit sour in the finish, but it doesnít feel good in the mouthfeel department. Those experts at the World Beer Cup, may not - gasp, horror - be experts at all!

This seems to be very variable from batch to batch. When I first tried it, it had a pronounced smoky flavour, which was hardly present a month later. Not much hopped, so the skoke aroma worked well in balancing the malt. But they can obviously do more to make a stable product.

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.

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 (2198) - 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.
