Unlike the other Gubernija that I've tried, this didn't taste like it was poured from a rusty drain pipe...just a regular drain pipe. It definitely had a weissbier flavor to it, but it had kind of a weak, sour, funk taste to it. At 4.5% ABV, you can do better with a Miller High Life, and their funk taste goes away quicker. Nothing against Lithuania, but they're O-for. I'm hoping it's just a remnant of the poor quality control process left over from the USSR.
