Hailing from Rinkuskiai, Lithuania, Werewolf is a clear, copper-coloured strong ale.  It is brewed by Brewery Rinkustiai and comes in adorably weird 500mL bottles emblazoned with an image that is half-woman, half-wolf and the slogan "You Have to Be Sure You Wanna Taste It".  The alcohol content is a forceful 8.2%. Werewolf is lightly carbonated, topped with a wisp of tan head.
A malty, bready aroma precedes a very sweet body. The flavour is malty, with definite notes of caramel. The malt theme continues through to the aftertaste.

Werewolf has great caramel character throughout. The high alcohol content is effectively masked by a big, malty flavour. I'd prefer a bit more carbonated liveliness, but that is a pretty small criticism of an otherwise tasty brew.

Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
