Bottle. Pours clear and yellow with a medium white head that dissipates fairly quickly with some lacing. Light aroma of grain, perhaps carboard. Flavor is slightly sweet grainy. Light bitter finish. Surprisingly rich mouthfeel.

Boks 0,568l fra Dagligvarebutikk i Riga. Lys gylden med litt gulskjćr. Hřyt kritthvitt skum som varer. Litt lacing. Metallisk aroma. Smaken er sřt malt med antydning til frukt. Svakt syrlig avslutning.

wlajwl (4688) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Aroma is grains and tea-like but not quite. The flavor is heavy on the grains, along with fruit and a flavoring to the grains that I can’t quite place. Different and decent enough pale lager.

obguthr (4684) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2009
Corny foreign lager aroma. Milky amber with a medium snow white head, good lacing. Thin body. Delightfully goood honey and corn flavor, honeysuckle finish. Actually quite nice. Very similar to Luksus and perhaps better.

hotstuff (4408) - Indiana, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Bottle.Small very fizzy white head that quickly dissipated, spotty amounts of lacing, fast rising carbonation, transparent, and a yellow hue. Nose was hoppy, semi-sweet and some grassy notes. Flavor was hoppy, bitter, semi-sweet, and somewhat harsh tasting.Mouthfeel was spritey and medium in body.Did not enjoy the taste of this beer due to it being somewhat harsh tasting, boring nothing exciting about it IMO and not one that I recommend spending your time or money on.

DanielBrown (4147) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2012
Bottle from Lithuanica, Birmingham. Doesn’t smell great - very sweetcorny. Very pale, little head. Taste is smooth with lots of cakey flavour and some dolly mixture. Perhaps a bit of candied fruit. Pretty light and easy to drink. Haven’t totally made up my mind here. It’s reasonable.

visionthing (3678) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2013
50cl can from Riga Airport. Pours clear pale golden with a short lived white head. Lightly fruity aroma with pale malt and hints of cooked vegetables and hops. Medium sweet with a mild, but somewhat decent bitterness. Still a fairly standard pale lager. Utterly boring, but drinkable.
