pintbypint (2593) - Edmonton, Alberta, - JUL 24, 2004
Sampled from brown 500ml bottle. Pours a very pale gold colour with a thick white head that disappers rather quickly to form a thin dishsoap like "scum", by the end of the glass no trace of head could be found at all. Moderate malt and hops in the nose. Full syrupy body, with a bitter finish.

UXO (182) - CANADA - AUG 28, 2014
Pours a clear straw yellow with one finger of white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, moderate lacing. Nose is pale malt, corn, and faint grassy hops. Taste follows suit with malt and corn dominant over grassy hops. Light to medium body and moderate sustained carbonation with a slightly sticky finish. The bottle says "Acknowledged by beer lovers and experts". Fair enough: I acknowledge it as well. Furthermore, I acknowledge I didn’t actually go blind as a result of drinking it. However, I also suggest you don’t actually drink it, unless soviet-era vodka with a chaser of gasoline is to your taste. Perhaps acknowledge it with a little wave as you pass it on the shelf, or maybe the sign against the Evil Eye? This isn’t really so much a beer for drinking, as it is a beer for avoiding, or perhaps running away from, very quickly.

mutz (574) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2014
Tap@ hotel in Vilnius. Bleekgele kleur, kraag blijft niet lang. Ruikt moutig. Behoorlijk zoete smaak. Weinig hop en mout in de smaak.

GoufCustom (802) - HONG KONG - AUG 18, 2014


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!

tania_nexust (101) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
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.

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.

Bottle BB Jan 2015 at house party. Body is very foamy, touch of carbonation. Taste is malty with some tangy ash. Hmm…pretty bad. We’re talking Carling bad.

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