1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
This is Gira, a soft drink, not proper beer. Hazy dark brown with a fizzy head. Aromas of lemonade and raisins. Taste very sweet with flavours of black bread, raisins and figs. Not a bad soft drink, but it is not beer.

Tall can from the Catonsville Lithuanian Festival. Pours murky brown with a fizzy off white head. Smells strongly of figs, raisins, cereal, and cookie malt. Tastes like sweet raisin with a light creaminess, fig juice, light milt, and almost no trace of alcohol. Medium body and almost no carbonation.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Slight hazy reddish brown with small orangy-brown head. Raisisn, red fruit, lots of caramel, some notes of mold and rotting fruit. Also quite spicy with christmas bread and glühwein. Very sweet with some sour notes. Wow this is some strange stuff, I just randomly bought this can and don’t really know what to think of it. It has some good notes, but it’s also very sweet and has that weird rotten/moldy taste too. Not my thing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cl. can sampled. Procured from Anna Maria. Dark red bread, normal fizzing away kvass head. Sweet sticky syrupy dark bread and lots of raisins nose, thick brown sugar. Very sweet raisin bread taste, dark bread, very sweet both brown & artificial sugar. Pretty nice, I do not think that kvass can ever be optimal canned or preserved as opposed to the real stuff which doesn’t keep but this was pretty nice, not overly artificial & quite different from what I get from most kvass that I pick up.

1L PET bottle. Dark brown color. Medium size, brownish head. Bready and sweet aroma. Metallic, awful sweetness, burnt plastic in taste. That’s just bad and not recommended to drink. Never again!

1L PET bottle (Iki, Kaunas) (5:4:4-:2-:7-=2.2---)
Brown, dark head. Pleasantish sweet gira aroma, tons of sweet dark malt extract. Pretty poor in the taste. First taste is unpleasantly papery. Sweet and sticky palate. Dirty, cardboardy. Finish is burnt plastic. Unpleasant.
