COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Šis alus gaminamas pagal klasikinę technologiją iš vandens, šviesaus miežių salyklo, karčiųjų bei aromatinių apynių ir alaus mielių. Ilgo brandinimo metu susiformuoja išskirtinis alaus skonis ir aromatas, natūraliai įsotinta angliarūgštė suteikia alui ilgai išliekančią standžią putą. Gamybos metu neatskiriamos mielės, kuriose gausu baltymų, mineralinių medžiagų bei B grupės vitaminų.

This beer is produced by classical technology of water, pale barley malt, bitter and aromatic hops and beer yeast. The unique taste and aroma of beer develops during the maturation time while naturally saturated carbon dioxide gives beer long-lasting rigid foam. Yeast which is rich in protein minerals and vitamin B is not separated in the process of brewing.

Ingredients: water, barley malt, hops, beer yeast.

SImple grainy aroma. Crisp carbonation. Hazy gold. Light milky and honey grains. Refreshing and crisp, but a little thin. Finish full lof honey. For a light one, a nice one.

allmyvinyl (9448) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 20, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Pours hazy orange-yellow with a thin white head. Decent carbonation. Aromas of cooked corn, biscuits, bread and hay, faint lemon. Taste is more of the same, only less so. Drinkable.

MartinT (9369) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2012
My Bottom Line:
Lightly caramelized cereals and straw build a chewy body for what is meant to be a quencher.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the hazy amber-hued dull blond.
-The soft prickling of carbonation increases drinkability.
-The flavor profile is delicate, but forgettable.
-Hops whisper bitterness into the finish.
-This is not bad by any means, but I’d rather drink their Kvietinis for quenching purposes.

Bottle.

3fourths (9137) - 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.

Ernest (7320) - 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.

larsga (7293) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2010
Small offwhite head. Hazy paleish yellow body. Papery mealy floral strawy aroma with spicy carraway notes. Dry-sweetish papery mealy floral taste with spicy herbal notes. Light body. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry oily grassy aftertaste with spicy notes. Decent, but a bit thin and boring. (0.33l bottle, Bamb Alyne, Vilnius.)
