2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
