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.

Kavu (3312) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2011

Saygun (12) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2011
Just like the rest of the Svyturys variety, this stuff is absolutely HORRID. The only thing that makes it a little worse than the rest is the lack of a body. It feels like drinking beer flavoured water from start to finish.

Pale yellow color, small white head. Aroma of corn and cardboard. Light body. Flavor is sweet corn-malty, cardboardish with harsh finish. Poor Baltian mass lager. One of the worst Svyturus products.

Clear pale golden colour with small white head. Malty aroma with some grassy notes. Grassy hops and sweetish caramel malts in flavour. Not bad.

Bare minimum of satisfactory drinking here, the Svyturio is overly hopped--and with bad hops to boot. Metallic, at times unpleasingly bitter, this one still has decent carbonation and malty aftertaste to balance it out. Essentially tastes like the Gintarinis/Amber with ramped-up hops (supermarket in Kaunas)
