0,5L bottle b@Marijampole LT, 1.2abv.
Kvass (gira), malts, prunes to the nose. 1 1/2 finger beige head on ruby-red-brown somewhat unclear body, only few lacings.
Tastes raisins, malts, prunes, apple, and lots of kvass (gira).
Fresh with alright carbonation. Juicy finish, and not too sweet this one. Good premium gira.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours near black with a big head that is gone quick. The aroma is straight pumpernickel. The taste has rye, raisin, a little too sweet. Solid kvass.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark brown colour, small head. Notes of dark rye bread, a bit of sweet aromas like caramel or honey. Medium sweetness. Drinkable and thirst-quenching, sweetness does not disturb and the aroma feels very natural.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium brown head. Clear reddish brown body. Deep earthy honeyish aroma with plastic spice notes. Sweet-dryish earthy honey and rye bread taste with roasty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, slick mouthfeel. No real aftertaste, with lingering honey and rye bread notes. Refreshing and interesting. (0.5l bottle, shop, Vilnius.)
