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.

Rune (11341) - Tromsų, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2013
500ml bottle, 5 % abv, shared by Gaute. Near clear, yellow coloured body. Airy white head reduced to a patchy layer. Faint, grassy nose with a fruity touch. Flavours of grain, herbal fruits and honey sweetness. Weak bitter endnotes, very dry. Possible to drink without further excitements (Tromsų 24.10.2013).

djoeye (3800) - Tromsų, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle on 5%abv found at Norfa XL Marijampole Lithuania. Airy white head, some lacing, and yellow bright but not totally clear body. Aroma fruity, sour/sweet notes, some malts, and some hints towards wheat beer. Tastes malts at once, bright sweet malts. Mouthfeel some dry, but low bitter. Ends with bread, sweet malts, a bit dry but good. Good if they have actually reduced abv, coz it is very easy drinkable. Enjoyed 2013-10-24 at RateMeet with Rune.

Holmen1 (4878) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2013
Flaske delt på brygga med Willy, som hadde håndimportert den: 5% iflg. etiketten, ikke 6%. utseende, aroma og smak som SIIP (standard internasjonal industripils). Ikke dårlig, bare kjedelig.

Kavu (4175) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2011
Basic pale lager. Very pale golden with nothing but malts. Perhaps a bit below average even for it’s type.

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.

TBone (16194) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2011
Bottled 500ml (Maxima, Vilnius)
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.
