As pale “Kanapinis” received great popularity, the dark version of this beer was brewed as well. For brewing of the beer, hemp seeds and roasted malt is used which gives rich dark colour and, upon tasting, caramel savour with distinct hop bitterness unfolds.

SWING-TOP 1L. Hazy red, tan frothy head. Aroma of caramel, cherries, spicy hops, dry leaves. Some smoked cheese far behind. The flavour is similar, fruity with a zesty bitter finish. Smooth, silky mouthfeel. Despite the rustic feel to it, it feels quite clean.

ectuohy27 (796) - ESTONIA - JAN 22, 2013
Another solid, complex, bready, yeasty beer full of flavor from Panevezys Municipality, brought by Lithuanian houseguests. Uniquely non-sweet and non-hoppy, a pleasant change of pace indeed!

bierkoning (11539) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2011
Bottle from Schroppfy, thanks! Pale amber color, cloudy. Peach and pear in the aroma. Tart flavor with lemon, canned peach and pear. Metallic and yeasty notes. These Lithuanian beers really are something else. But in a pleasant way.

rauchbier (3700) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2012
2 litre bottle (5.3% abv) from an ethnic foodstore in Scunthorpe. Hazy red brown, thin but sustained cream coloured head and gentle condition. Initial buttery sweet caramel notes in the nose but developing a peppery spiciness as it warms, some earthiness from the hops and a touch of burnt smokiness from the darker malts. Quite sweet from the start in the mouth but a dry bitterness and burnt toast note quickly balances this out, theres a background yeastiness and a suggestion of butteriness akin to a German dunkel but with a tangy fruit note lurking in the background and lingering into the finish where it is joined by a gentle chalky yeast bitterness that becomes dominant but never opressive.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours reddish brown with a small tan head. The aroma is roast, rye bread, toffee. The taste is sweet, roasted malt, some caramel. Best part of this beer is the brewery name.. which I repeatedly called "Can of penis."
