Amber, good head of fine bubbles. Mostly a bread malt aroma followed by a soft malt, earthy taste. It’s a surprisingly good Oktoberfest style. Saygun (12) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2011
Slightly more bearable than the regular Svyturys, but still pretty nasty and tasteless. Following my experience in Lithuania and with Lithuanian beer, I think those guys should stop producing beer and start importing it. They really have no idea what they’re doing.

Draft at The Taste of London Food Festival 2011. It pours clear red-amber, with moderate carbonation and a foamy off-white head. The nose is caramel malt, roasted barley, metal and Ovaltine. The taste is caramel, fruit cake, metal, milk chocolate, nut, praline, nougat and hay, with a dry finish. Overall it is fairly sweet, but decent enough (and not as bad as I was expecting!).

Deep mahagony reddish color with a nice foamy tan-light beige head. Caramel and biscuit in the nose with nice fruits like wild berries, fig, raisins and yeast. Smooth mouthfeel with a balanced body, biscuits again with caramel, fruits and honey, some spicy ginger, a bit of grassy hop in the finish. Nice surprise!
50cl bottle. Poured red/dark amber color with a fluffy head. Caramel sweet malty aroma. Flavor is sweet caramel malty mostly, found it better than I had expected it to be, thought it would be much sweeter than it actually was. Not something I will buy again though.
