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.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2006
This one was way too grainy and grassy for me to appreciate. Medium finish, yes but maximum yeastiness. An acquired taste?

Miksu (5030) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2006
Bottle. Golden color, small head. Sweet and malty aroma with notes of corn, butter and white wine. Malty, bitter, grainy and fruity estery flavor. Bitter and estery finish. No reason to finish this beer, except alcohol.

Ungstrup (31463) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2006
A light yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet hoppy, from a boring hop sort - and so is the flavor.

My favorite beer, though I’m no expert, so take it with a grain of salt. Great aftertaste

JonMoore (2033) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2006
Bottle. Golden colour with a large white head. Vague malty and metallic aroma. Didn’t seem to taste of much at first; but some sweetness did develop. Thin and watery mouthfeel. Not the best.

johndoughty (4587) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2005
Pale yellow and poured with a medium head.Slightly hazy and left no lacing.a little insipid and certainly not one of the best from this part of the world.

rauchbier (3699) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2004
UPDATED: APR 30, 2012 Bottle, from an ethnic food store in Scunthorpe. Gold, thin shortlived white head and moderate condition. Gentle sweet malty nose with some ester notes and a low hop bitterness, quite a sharp estery bitterness in the mouth with a fruitiness developing, lingering dry bitterness in the finish.
