On-tap at Karčema, Plunge, Lithuania

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that left a collar around the edge of glass.
S: Light aromas of sweet malts are present in the nose.—corn seems to stand out in particular.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has a little amount of sweetness from the malts.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and is nice and clean and smooth. It isn't that adjuncty.

Serving type: on-tap

Reviewed in Roger Protz' CAMRA classic "300 Beers To Try Before You Die!"
Ekstra also is on the "1001" list. I will review the next time I have it.

Nice appearance, clear golden with solid white head, but too dusty , vegetably & corny aroma.
Taste - rather sweet, malty, honey, metallic, hop is forgotten.
Medium body and carbonation. Nothing interesting.

Bottle from Mix Markt in Kaiserslautern. Nice, smooth helles. Aroma is on the faint side, but taste is good and overall presentation is good. Decent lager, more dortmunder than pale.

Continuing the process of gradually going back and reviewing beers in full for beers I had previously designated as a "had". 500 ml bottle served at cellar temperature into a pint glass.

Appearance - Pours a rich golden colored beer with amber hues. Thin half finger of white head is poured, compensated by decent retention and some sparse lacing left behind. Carbonation appears minimal.

Smell - Plenty of grassy hop aroma, some general graininess and a light floral bouquet. Pretty respectable for the style.

Taste - Clean and fairly grain dominate, there's definitely some caramel like sweetness that comes through, moreso than other EPL's. Still it works nicely. The sweetness does become unwelcome by the second half of the bottle though.

Mouthfeel - Carbonation is low, although body has a certain syrupy characteristic to it, aided by that carbonation. Body and mouthfeel is moderate.

Overall - Quite honestly one of the best of the sty;le that I've tried, falvor is good and filling and the body works well with the flavor profiles. Consider this a go-to if you need something a half step up from a lawn mower type of beer.
