Svyturys is not just the best Lithuanian beer I've had to date, but it's a pretty decent lager that holds its own with some of the better mass-brewed European lagers from Germany and the Czech Republic. I was expecting that metallic taste that I often sense in many Eastern European lagers from Russia, Lithuania, Poland, etc. but all I tasted was a nice malty lager that was easy drinking. It had a little more alcohol than average lagers, but it was very understated.
