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.

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

ectuohy27 (1021) - ESTONIA - JUL 16, 2010
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)

Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2008
500 ml bottle, at Gladmatfestivalen 2008, Stavanger (Pushkin restaurant). ABV was 5.0%. Golden colour, decent head. Moderate aroma, some malts. The flavour is slightly alcoholic (a bit of a surprise, the ABV is fairly moderate), but the beer is also quite well hopped, which makes it slightly-above-average for European golden lagers.

Eructoblaster (3843) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2008
Bottle - 500ml. Pale blond body with a lasting white foamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with malty and bready hints. Taste lacks strength and complexity. Ends with a short bitter finish.
