COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Etnologų nuomone Šiaurės Lietuvoje sambariais vadinta šventė, kurios metu buvo geriamas alus, padarytas iš žmonių sudėtų miežių. Kaimas tiksliai nutardavo kiek ,,pilti sambarių” (t.y. kiek miežių sunešti salyklui). Sambariai suburdavo visus sodžiaus žmones, nepriklausomai nuo amžiaus ir socialinės padėties. Gėlėmis, vainikais išpuošdavo trobos vidų, kiemą, sodą, pasikviesdavo muzikantų ir prasidėdavo šventė. Dienų rūpesčiai darbas, vargas, pareigos buvo atidedami į šalį, užmirštami.
Apibendrinant sambarius galima pacituoti istoriko J. Jurginio žodžius: ,,Dabar sunku pasakyti, ar sambariai ir ilgės buvo susijusios su pagonybe, tačiau visai aišku, kad svarbiausias jų tikslas buvo ne religinis, o visuomeninis, viena iš kaimynų bendravimo formų, turinti ilgą praeitį”.

"Sambariu Beer"
In the old times, „Sambariu“ beer was believed to bring better barley after the sowing of grain. During this ritual, all the people would bring their own barley and contribute to brewing „Sambariu“ beer. After the beer was brewed, village people gathered in a house decorated with flowers, they listened to the music, danced and drank beer.

Taste is medium sweet, light to medium bitter and faint acrid. Body is creamy with soft carbonation. Finish is long and sweet with notes of syrup, almonds, hazelnuts and hints of sweet licorice.

Tap (Rinkuškiai brewery tap) (6+:4:7+:4:14=3.5++)
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!

omhper (25717) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2009
Bottled, from Snekutis, Vilnius. Deep golden, rich head. Juicy floral nose. Sweet and fruity with medium-full body. Soapy and rustic with notes of butter. Dense and soft, juicy and sweaty, alcolol is well hidden. Some late herbal bitterness.

Bottle. Frothy White fair mostly deminishing head. Amber colour. Moderate malty and light hoppy nice aroma. Moderate biter flavor. candis dominating. Average modefate bitter finish. Oily palate.

3.2
Ungstrup (38382) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 18, 2007
Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet matly with strong notes of caramel and fruit, and lesser notes of alcohol. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of over ripe fruits, and light notes of alcohol, leading to a dry bitter end, where the alcohol still is present.

3.2
MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2012
My Bottom Line:
Spicy hops manage to protrude from this powerful brew’s almond-laced caramel malts, building a nuanced, if unmemorable, sipper.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam bobs atop the glowing amber.
-This is more effervescent than the average for the region, but it actually helps in this case.
-This is drier than expected, which increases drinkability.
-Marzipan notes roam about.
