5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
wanted to try this from a local shop for €2.05 and it seems to be the best root beer(1,2%) i have ever tasted - pops open with a loud bang and tastes very sweet and sour at the same time.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml dark swing top bottle, £1.99 from a local Polish shop. Appears to be unfiltered. A little crude and consequently quite interesting. Hazy pale amber/orange appearance. Some diacetyl. Some fruit. Some honey. Neutral to dry palate with sweet flavour, especially when dregs are swirled and poured in. Lithuanian beers tend to be more interesting than most. This is not a beer that is conventionally pleasant, but is quite fascinating and different.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy orange-copper color, quick-fading thin head. Monstrous whiffs of butterscotch diacetyl. Popcorn butter and caramel. Sweet cereal taste up front, low bitterness, but finishing surprisingly dry. Rustic in that special Lithuanian way. Not for everyone.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from the Polish delicatessen, opposite The Barum Top Inn, Halifax. Hazed amber with a small head. Aroma is lager malts with a light fruitiness. It’s not too stated in flavour, with some lager character here too along with a sweetness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, as hele ölu (from estonia, spunka). Golden hazy, unfiltered. Sweet malty nose, honey dry meadow on nose. Bit meady, bit sweet orange, sweet orange peely estery. Med bodied, smooth, dry dusty flavour. Fruity malty, fermented honey dryness. Feels very alive, raw, medieval. Youve sort of gotta get in the right mood for this. Doesnt compare really to normal ales, cant drink it through the same frame of reference.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ home shared with dad. Clear dark golden color, medium sized off-white head that diminishes quickly. Aroma is a bit weird and it doesn’t particularly strike me as very fresh. Tastes malts, dusty, lightly sweet-bitter, tastes old and not very fresh to say the least. Not good.
