"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."

Very clear yellow colur with a massive white head that stays a little. Rather unspectacular in its taste. A bit sweet for a lager, but has a slight essence of fruityness in its aftertaste.

Buying this beer strictly because it was Lithuanian, I was dissappointed in the overal taste of the beer. The yellowish pale pour had ZERO head, little aroma and little taste to offer except some citrus, hops and very little malt. I really wouldn’t waste my time with this beer, but if it was free I wouldn’t pass it up. However, there are tons of better beers out there. And it’s not like Lithuania is globally known for the beer production. A 2001 Gold Winner?? Who was tasting this Homer Simpson?

Hazy, light gold body with a huge white head. The aroma has some sweet potatoes and honey. There are also some light herbal notes. The taste has some potato skins along with flowers and some old oranges. There is a slight apple character. A strange brew indeed.

badgerben (4822) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2005
Clear yellow color with a thick white head. Grainy aroma, but clear and light, not muddled. Also a bit of fruit and barnyard qualities. The taste was very similar. It was grainy, but very fresh and not the silo dust that most grainy beers end up being. A little bit of sweetness on the end, reminiscent of honey.

johndoughty (4862) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2005
Golden and malty with a clean taste.Left no lacing just a slight lingering maltiness. A reasonable attempt at a very pleasant style.

Bottle. Frothy good mostly deminishing head. Moderate malty aroma, slightly citruslike. Metallic flavour, short finish. Nice palate.

Geiserich (4089) - Linz, AUSTRIA - NOV 28, 2005
Light bready aroma. Fresh, light malty flavor. Nice dry, bitter finish. One of the better beers of this county.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Pilsener golden with a creamy, white head. Malty aroma. Soft, light body dominated by malt with a weak, underlying tartness that indicates the use of brewing cereals. But overall a decent and quenching drink. 211105

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2005 Pours light golden with a thin white head and sparkling carbonation. Aroma is nasty sweetish malts, DMS, and honey. Taste is sweet bready malts and a strange fruity butter finish....? Mouthfeel is sticky and deceivingly heavy, with medium carbonation. This does not taste like any Dortmunder I’ve had. Because, I taste corn, and rice (which they admit to). And to think that I got excited when I found out this was a Dortmunder. Overall, if I were to rate purely on style, I’d say this is a complete failure in my book. Why would I want my glass decorated with a thick scum of glaring whiteness? Does that sound even the least bit appealing? Why do beers from Eastern Europe always taste so sugary sweet? This beer did not sit well.
