UPDATED: DEC 22, 2016 500ml green glass bottle with different label. Good to see new beers from Lithuania available in Moscow. Pours gold with a white head, some lacing on the glass. Aroma is herbal hop, bread, malt. Taste is grass, pale malt, mild bitterness. Actually quite decent.

A lovely lager with a light golden body and nice white head. Sweet, malty taste with just a hint of hops. Very tasty and a typical Baltic lager style.

BeerRenter76 (868) - Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Overall it wasnt as bad as I expected, but pretty average overall. Mid yellow body, lots of carbonation that left a decent amount of lace. Aroma of malts, grass and upon one smell a hint of apple appeared. Flavor had a slight metallic presence and malts followed. Average European lager. Originally rated on 11/26/08

taunusmies (352) - FINLAND - JUN 17, 2016
Clear golden colour, white medium head. Nice malty aroma with grain. Flowery hops with notes of hay. Quite fizzy. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel. Perhaps a bit too much on the watery side.
