ŠVYTURIO is, 5,0 % volume light beer of transparent gold colour and tender aroma of hops. Rich taste and bitter freshness of hops are a subtle match. This especially soft and light beer is made of malt, hops, aromatic hops, beer yeast and fresh water.

ŠVYTURIO beer is appreciated by many Lithuanian beer lovers, because it is a perfect match of light freshness of GINTARINIS and rich taste of EKSTRA. Maybe because the label of this beer is red the beer lovers named it “red”. Almost all shop attendants reach for ŠVYTURYS refrigerator if they are asked for “red”.
This beer is sold in 0.5 litre bottles only.

Note: The beer was replaced by a 6% version in 2012, but the name was reverted to the 5% version in 2013, while the old version continued on as Švyturis Tradicinis.

TheKernOwl (196) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2016
On the sweetish, butter-y side of lagers. Hay and corn on the slightly malty/biscuit-y nose; cereal theme continues in the taste (like “Cheerios”, mixed with weak tea). Altogether more drinkable than many a too-bitter Euro lager, but I am probably not going to be demanding a third bottle in any particular sitting.

Weak, malty aroma. Mellow bitterness in the taste, butter. Okay, drinkable, not much more.

jmgreenuk (7848) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle from Lithuanica, Birmingham. Poured a clear straw colour with a thin whispy white head. The aroma is light malt. The flavour is light bitter with a malt hop, light weird tasting plastic palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Pretty awful I must say.

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle from Lithuanica, Birmingham. Very pale. Very sweet. Dabs of sherbet in a morass of sweet, thin tea. I’ve had much better.

ogivlado (7254) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 4, 2014
Bottled 500ml. -from Rimi supermarket Vilnius. Straight from the bottle. Light grassy nose. Sweet malty, light grassy and some cardboard with hint of herbal hoppiness in the finish. Boring "red".

foxo82 (843) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle - I think from Lituanica, Birmingham. Slightly cloudy gold with a long lasting head. Metallic yeast aroma. Sweet Euro hop taste - lasting bitterness or duration. Average.
