"Kvas" (or 'gira' in Lithuanian), also sometimes called a bread drink in English, is a fermented beverage made from black or regular rye bread. Usually it is classified as a non-alcoholic beverage, although it does have a very low alcohol content--a product of natural fermentation.
"Smetoniska" kvas is made with respect to good quality and traditions of Lithuanian cuisine by Ragutis, a brewery in Kaunas, Lithuania. The brewery was opened in 1853.
The color of the bread used contributes to the color of the resulting drink. This kvas pours a clear ruby-brown topped by a short-lived wisp of light tan foam. The nose comes off as the usual grainy pumpernickel deal, with a slight bit of gingerbread in there as well. A bit of what seems like nutmeg works its way in, too. Naturally fermented kvas "Smetoniška" is a traditional kvas for the whole family. Enjoy it and be healthy!
