Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2006
My bottle didnt say Ekstra- but just 5.2%. Pours a clear medium to light gold with a nice white head, fades a bit but leaves a film. Aroma is bready malts, but has a slight skunked hop aroma. Bready malts along with some herbal and spicy hops and a slight metallic finish. High carbonation detracts from the flavors and mouthfeel.

Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma is fruity malt. Flavour is fruity malt with green apple.

thegreenrooster (4284) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 23, 2006
Pour is a very clear yellow with a white head. Aroma is a lager non-existant. Flavor is not totaly crap. A very sweet grain and hop. Nothing to blow you away mind you but still decent for a eastern euro lager and the price is decent as well at only a bit over a dollar for a 500ml.

Bottle. Yellow colour with a medium frothy mostly diminishing white head. Aroma of malts and hops. Not a good one.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2016 Re-rate, 2-24-16, from .5 l can. The usual clear yellow pale lager, sudsy head. Nudging the smell up one since it’s really not bad, just the usual "beer" smell. Taste still has a bit fusel alcohol to it. Some bitterness that seems more like dead yeast, in spite of looking filtered or pasteurized. Still your basic cheap Baltic beer. Original rating, May 20, 2006: Taster at Binny’s, Orland Park. So the post Soviet beer invasion continues. First thing I noticed here was an odd cracker smell. Reuglar lager color and head after that. Taste? Kind of grainy and corny. Just ordinary imported dollar bottle of beer. 3-3-4-2-8

LadyCooper (100) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2006
Pours a hazy golden with a foamy head that leaves some serious residue (almost as bad as Guinness residue!), but the taste isn’t too bad. A little bitter and malty, but nothing really stands out. Leaves a slight metallic aftertaste, but again, nothing too bad.

Decent light yellow beer, not skunked, crisp, slight hops, but no real outstanding feature.

Rune (12071) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2006
330ml bottle. Pale yellow with plenty of white foamy head. Light grainy aroma. Thin mouthful and lightly malted. Short end. Very average for its style. Alright as a partner to freshly cooked asparagus.

onystrom (1333) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2006
Yellow color with okay head. Some sweet malty flavors mixed with some hoppy bitterness. An okay beer.

DuffMan (10072) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 23, 2006
A pleasant surprise for my first Lithuanian beer! Pale yellow, massive dense head. Vaguely fruity, grainy aroma. Lightly fruity palate, malty and smooth with a crisply bitter finish that is mild. Very nice.
