Ernest (6218) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light yellow. Aroma is notes of raw grain / cereal, sour veggies, diacetyl. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, raw/husky, very unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Yum.

3fourths (8023) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2013 bottle best by October 2013. Lightly hazed gold body with a small white head and no retention. Very faint nose of grains, yeast, water, honey, air... Syrupy malt texture, creamy carbonation, softer than most Šviesuis, and lacks the overt flaws seen in so many Lithuanian beer. Drinkable but plain and uninteresting.

zenkis (572) - Ogre, LATVIA - NOV 11, 2012
Color dark amber with white head, not lasting long. Aroma of some spice which I can not identify, maybe licorice (much usable by this brewer), although not intensive. Taste is a bit sweet with no notable manifestations nor in taste nor afterpath. Pity. Weird beer, not good.

Miksu (4948) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2012
0.5 l bottle, thanks Mako and hanniku! Deep golden color with hint of haze. Sweet aroma of honey, corn and popcorn. Sweet honeyish and herbal taste with some toffee, grainy corn and butter. Smooth oily palate with smooth carbonation.

Glouglouburp (6023) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 28, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2012 In short: A basic thirst blonde lager. Unspectacularly drinkable
How: Tap at Alaus Namai, Vilnius, Lithuania
The look: Almost clear blonde body topped by a persistent small white head
In long: Nose is fresh cereals, a tiny bit of that characteristic Lithuanian countryside toasted hay and fruity notes. Taste is crisp hay-like cereals, fruity notes of oranges, dusty yeast, light honey-caramel sweetness. The orange flavor adds a strange acidity in the after-taste. Very active carbonation. Nothing remarkable here. Strangely I preferred the tap at Alaus Namai over the tap at brewery beer bar. The tap at Alaus Namai had a softer carbonation and I didn’t note the acidic orange flavor. That’s strange. Quite drinkable but also not interesting, basically I’m not sure if I liked this beer or not, although I usually hate when people are vague, I think that vagueness may even annoy me more than some other stuff. Maybe.

Grzesiek79 (3203) - Radom, POLAND - APR 16, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2014 1 l. Bottle Swing Top with paint Label. Pachnie drozdzami, pszenica i skorka od chleba. Swieze bardzo aromatyczne delikatne w smaku slabo wysycone i mocno metne. Ze srednia piana i krotkim terminem przydatnosci. Namalowanym na etykiecie. Swietnie wygladajaca i zachecajaca butelka do konsumpcji.
