2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0,5L standard brown glass bottle with a cap as "Beerville Light" from Rimi supermarket in Tallinn. The ABV and appearance matches so I think this must be it. Big buttery Lithuanian aroma. I can see how some people will interpret this as a brewing flaw but it’s actually the way traditional beers are done in Lithuania and I guess the locals prefer it that way. Taste has plenty of malt and more buttery/creamy flavours. Low carbonation. Slightly soapy finish. Well, you either like this style or not. But for me, the rich and soft malty body makes it more natural and drinkable than most of the other supermarket lagers which have a thin body, fizzy carbonation and taste like sheet metal. This is flavoursome but not all these flavours are good.

Bottle from Snekutis Uzupio, Vilnius. Pours pale golden with a big, rocky white head. A bit strange spices and vegetables aroma. Starts sweet with quite a bit of honey flavours. Not completely off, better in the mouth than in the nose.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500ml bottle kindly shared by djoeye. A solid foamy white head with lots of dimples on the top of a clear golden body. Dusty hops with honey on the nose. Taste of earthy malts, honey, butter, and lactose. Ends with mid-sweet malty moments. About drinkable. Far from great (Tromsř 22.01.2015).
