ectuohy27 (620) - 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 (10500) - 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 (3626) - 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 (2205) - 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."

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of Schroppfy. Pours a cloudy amber with a lacing off-white head. The nose has a little exotic fruit and dryish(!) caramel accents. Light body, again this interesting lactic tartness. Overripe fruitiness, rustic metallic notes with a dry finish. Again hardly any hops. Very far from what you’d normally associate with a Dunkel! 080911

Derbeth (360) - Kraków, POLAND - OCT 7, 2014
Draught. Dark brown colour, quickly diminishing head. Aroma: dark bread, some honey, some strange herb in finish (maybe this is hemp). Soft carbonation. Unusual and good.

FatPhil (9508) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 9, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2014 500ml bottle (?, Vilnius) (5:4:5:3:10=2.7)
Deep copper, almost no head. Simple malt aroma. Minerally taste - chalky. Dry, a touch too minerally. Passable beer, but not exciting me.
Rerate: 500ml (Olu Volu, Tartu) (6:4:6:4:12=3.2)
Pours with a sweet cakey aroma, very malty, a little mashy in the glass, just a little hint of liver once or twice, but sweet raisiny cakeyness, and even kali/kvass-like aspects, dominate that. Nice dark copper, small tight beige head. Smooth palate, pleasant carbonation. Rich sweet taste, again a little raw and kvassy., but again has a little bit of liver in its graininess. Anna says it’s a little vegetal, but I’m not getting that. Feels a bit watery, this could be made a bit bigger, all the way to doppelbock levels. Much nicer this time. Useful rerate.
