Can from an Eastern European shop in Bedminster, Bristol. Deep copper in colour, with a frothy, off-white, head and moderate carbonation. Sweet, malty, aroma with some red berries and brown sugar. Flavour had bready malts, toffee notes, more fruit and a hint of chocolate, before a moderately bitter finish. Fine.

56,8cl can from some supermarket in Vilnius. Pours clear amber with a rather short-lived head. This is beer!? It tastes more like some kind of soda. Artificial sweet candy aroma, some caramel and not much that reminds me of beer, and certainly not any Belgian ale. Whoa! Weird one. Somewhat drinkable, not the worst soda, but beer!? What!?

Butelka. Piwo barwy ciemno-mahoniowej z rubinowymi refleksami, klarowne. Piana początkowo bardzo ładna, obfita, barwy ecru, drobna, ale średnio-trwała, dziurawi się i wolno redukuje do cienkiego kożucha. Aromat nikły, słodkawy: karmel, toffi, nuty opiekane, ogrzane trąci nawet orzechami. Nut owocowych, czekoladowych, czy kawowych jednak brak. Pierwszy łyk i uwydatnia się zbyt mocne, drażniące nasycenie. W smaku nadal słodkawo - wszystko kręci się wokół smaków opiekanych, melanoidynowych, karmelowych, toffi. Choć jest też lekki kwasek od ciemnych słodów i jest odrobinę orzechowe. O dziwo, pojawia się nawet przyjemna, chmielowa goryczka odkładająca się na podniebieniu, która w efekcie daje bardziej wytrawny finisz. Dziwny twór. Porterem bałtyckim to to nie jest, tym bardziej imperialnym. Bardziej to przypomina jakiś ciemnego lagera ...

56,8cl can from some Maxima in Vilnius. Pours dark, dark mahogany coloured with a rather fast dissipating off-white head. Malty and caramelly aroma with notes of dark dried fruits and hints of rye bread. Sweet and malty and reminds me slightly of kvass - it’s a bit bready and there are some slightly sour notes present. Quite drinkable, but hardly memorable.

Can from a minimart in Thetford - May have been called Euro Market? Sweet banana and cloves aroma. Opaque pale gold. Creamy if blotchy white head. Sweet and sour, the latter more so into the finish. Foam banana sweets, herbs and citrus. Relatively light bodied and on the thin side but rescued by the soft carbonation. Abrupt finish, somewhat astringent. Much better than the previous Lithuanian hefe I had. Perhaps not a classic but a decent enough effort.

Can, 568ml: BBD 24th Apr 2018. Poured into a vase shapped ’Old Speckled Hen’ pint glass at home on 2nd June 2017. Two hour walk with the wife and dog, needed a beer: really enjoyed this, one of the best ’Dark Lagers’ I have come across so far. Malty and semi-sweet in nature, Cola brown body, off-white head. Caramel and toffee in both the nose and taste: my sweet tooth taking to the brew straight away.

56,8cl bottle from some hypermarket in Vilnius. Limited edition nicely presented in a cardboard box for the bottle. The cashier even checked the box for hidden alarm stickers. Pours very dark mahogany, looks almost black in the glass. Head is beige and fairly modest in size. Mild aroma of dark malty with wooden notes and hints of bourbon. Some dried dark fruits is also present and hints of caramel too. Fairly sweet and flavour intensity is lower than expected, but still not bad. Not sure if I’ve tried any other rather large bottle of industrial barrel aged stuff. At least it’s much more interesting than the usual pale lagers from the brewery.

Pours clear yellow, large head. Nose shows banana, doughy wheat, soft spicy phenols, light banana confectionery. Flavours include doughy wheat, banana, bready malt. Very little bitterness, making it seem a bit on the sweet side.

Butelka. Piwo barwy żółto-miodowej, całkowicie zmętnione. Piana śnieżnobiała, obfita, drobna, zwarta, dość trwała - redukuje się wolno do postaci kożucha. Aromat dość wyraźny i klasyczny: bananowe estry, lekke goździkowe fenole, zboże, może gumy balonowej brak. W smaku słodkawe, najbardziej dominuje dojrzały banan, wspomagany przez drożdże i zboże. Jest też odpowiednia fajna cytrynowa kwaśność. Finisz bardziej wytrawny z wyczuwalną niską goryczką chmielową. W odczuciu jest dość pełne, rześkie, choć nagazowanie mogłoby być większe.

CAN 568 ML. Clear bright gold, white head. Smells of sweet pale malts, pretty strong wild herbs with a medicinal edge. The taste is of a full-bodied malty pale lager, moderate sweetness, same medicinal herbs with no proper bitterness. Soft mouthfeel. Not bad.

(500 ml can, Beijing) AROMA: significant peach/apricot, sweet, fruity, smells more like an apricot cocktail than beer. APPEARANCE: slightly pale, straw yellow with a touch of oranginess, decent billowy white head that reduces quickly TASTE: fruity, artificial, some underlying wheat and yeast, fruit characteristics override any maltiness, strange. PALATE: not very frizzy, kind of flat, a bit oily/creamy, light body, small small touch of bitterness on the end. OVERALL: not what I was expecting. Light in body, heavy in fruitiness, seems more like a Radler type beer made with apricot soda. I guess refreshing on a hot summer day, thirst quenching, but below average as far as beers go.

Dziękuję @mieszko za prezent z Litwy ! Naprawę państwa należy zacząć od naprawy pojęć, jak się okazuje recenzję tego piwa też. Jest to 6% lager, który w składzie ma jedynie słody jasne i karmelowe, a nazywa się Imperial Porter. Z pewnością nim nie jest, nie jest też bałtykiem, najbliżej mu do czegoś w stylu czeskiego polotmavego/vienna lagera i tak też będę go oceniał, bo w stylu porter bałtycki nie mógłbym zostawić suchej nitki. W aromacie czuć że to lager, na początku ciężko powiedzieć czy jasny czy ciemny po samym aromacie, z czasem wychodzi skórka pieczywa, trochę nut warzywnych i ziemistych, jest mało intensywny, dosyć przyjemny. Barwa jest jasnobrązowa, niezbyt ładna, piana za ładna i drobna, jednak szybko opadająca. W smaku jest wodniste, karmelowe, dosyć wytrawne. Tu również czuć lagerowy charakter, bardzo czysty profil, nie za wiele się dzieje. Goryczki brak, na finiszu lekko metaliczne i kwaskowate. Wysycenie średnie. Nie da się ukryć że piwo jest kiepskie, ale nie ma też większych wad, jest lepsze niż koncernowy jasny lager, to na pewno.

Volfas Engelman APA (Australian Pale Ale)
This is a "special release" by Volfas Engelman from Kaunas, Lithuania. Usually I associate APA with American Pale Ale, but according to the can they wanted to make an "Australian Pale Ale" here. Very well. The aroma is mostly grassy and floral, the taste is mildly malty and buttery. Tastes like Helles, or maybe like an a bit more expensive lager.

Really fruity aroma, wheaty and orange, sweet. Not really a wit. Sweeter taste, fruity, but more cleaning products. Pale hazy orange, brief spongy head. Lightish palate, some sweetness, moderate carbonation. Too sweet, and so not a wit. However, remarkably drinkable, I almost feel guilty glugging it so uncritically. Finished Anna’s glass too. Maybe I’m just thirsty.

Rich gold, nice persistent frothy head. Aroma reminds me totally of the weetabix with additions I had in England last week. Raisons, in case you care. Eww chemical watery taste. Fullish palate for an LA, almost a slickness going on. Taste is gluey too. Oh god, that’s bad.

Boks delt med Ovesen på Holmens aktivitetsdag: lett uklar, lys korngul (med et grønnskjær), kort skum. Noe kunstig aroma og smak i den søtlige retningen, minner på mange måter om en pærebrus/cider med sukkertøy i tillegg. Her har de virkelig spart på humlen. Slapp munnfølelse. Decidedly underwhelming.
