Amber reddish almost clear. Malty, heavy dry caramelly nose. Rich caramels, bit old leafy hops, caramels. A heavy drink.
Bottle at Bambalyne in Vilnius.laiti (8468) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2012
Oxidized malt / notebook paper.
Plaster / drywall yeast.
Chewy, grainy dog food malt aroma and flavor.
Decent body, good froth, medium to full mouthfeel.
Medium sweetness, low bitterness.
Metal and tomato / sweet catsup notes present.
Soured cola and vegetables after it breathes.
Another flaw-ridden country beer, this one with surprisingly full carbonation in the mouth but little to no visible signs in the glass. Raw, grainy, under-fermented with some strange DMS-like faults (take your typical carrot / cabbage character and add some catsup, paprika and garlic... siracha sauce!)
1L bottle @ KBF. Rated on 26.11.2010Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2012
Aroma is rather strong on butter. Also some sweetish honey notes and grainy malt. Flavour is a bit odd and sweet with butter, spices and some grainy malt. Odd stuff, but decent for a 8% pale lager.
In short: A big sweet copper lager with a spicy twist. Meh.TaktikMTL (7798) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2012
How: Tap directly at the brewery restaurant
The look: Clear copper topped by an off-white ring of foam
In long: Nose is malty and a tiny bit spicy. Taste is oily caramelized malts, oily roasted nuts, a surprisingly strong spiciness sensation, some candies and notes of sweet breakfast fruit jam. This felt a bit heavy for a beer that is only 8%, low drinkability. Not my thing. Certainly the most memorable beer I had during the Lithuanian road trip, a road trip that I find hard to describe, I don’t know if I should describe it as a trip where I was taking naps between drinking beer or a trip during which I was drinking beer between naps.

Nice christmassy spicy aroma. Dark treacle hints. Mixed peel too. Mellow, nicely attenuated and aged. No way this is 8%. A touch of toffee in the taste, and some aged yeastiness too. Suspect this should be a S/H/V rather than an ESL. Either way, it’s delicious!
