"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."

Bottle. Yellow/orange colour with small white head. Little aroma. Taste is of a little yeast and malt a few floral notes in there. Everything else is typical of a lager. I am not a fan of lagers but this one wasn’t too bad, at least it had some taste. I have rated it a 3 based on lager ratings. If compared to other beers it would not get much above 2. A good beer within its style.

Smells sour grain. The foam is very rough and has an average storage life. The flavor is dominated by hops and it is sweet in a slightly unusual way (probably added sweetener). The aftertaste has clarified hop bitterness. Not a beer you remember long.

Vilnius 3/10 2015. 50 cl can in front of hotel. Nice watchtower on the can. Aroma is sweet malts with hints of sourness. Medium carbonation and watery palate. Taste is sickingly sweet. Overpowering - I really miss the bitter touch. I think the "Ekstra" in the name refers to the sweetness in this unpleasant brew.

Fairly malty and a bit bitter taste. Funky smell. A little fruity in the taste.

YantarCoast (534) - Moscow, RUSSIA - AUG 15, 2015
500ml can. Thought it was Ekstra Draught (wanted to re-rate) but turns out it's another tick for Lithuania. Pours gold with a brief white head. Hoppy and malty aroma. Taste is bread, malt, spicy hops. Decent lager.

jaghana (4828) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - AUG 13, 2015
Bottle 50cl shared by Calisky, a clear yellow beer with low head. Nose is lemony with grassy hops. Aroma is on barley sugar and apple notes, light honey touch, grassy hops, saccharose, better than expected even if not outstanding.

MichaelAwesome (5920) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2015
Recht trocken am Gaumen und im Hals. Etwas hopfig, ein wenig Getreide, Perlung ausgewogen. Bitterkeit kaum vorhanden. Nett zu trinken, nichts Besonderes.
