KnutAlbert (6012) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 3, 2008
Light lager, but very well hopped, making it very refreshing. Quite similar to a North German pils like Jever. For once the commercial description describes the actual beer and not something the marketing detp has cooked up!

obguthr (3653) - 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.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2012
500ml bottle, 5% ABV. Respectable lace and retention, bright gold beer. Soft, shrub-like hop, lightly floured malt aroma. Full and soft with a sweet, well-made, Germanic character; crisp malt and sappy hop; breadstick, honey and unsalted popcorn hints. Better than every single widely distributed lager in the UK.

berkshirejohn (4396) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2012
50cl bottle, ABV 5.0% from a Polish shop on Oxford Road, Reading. Straw with a ring of white head and light carbonation; the aroma is light and floral to start with some deeper herbal notes; the taste is similarly light and floral with a ceral body; and a soft, gently bitter finish. Not at all what I was expecting, a refreshing refined lager, rather than a brash Eastern European one.

LowBrau (74) - Tonawanda, New York, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Pale gold & clear. Thick white head that stuck around for a while. Cereal dominates the nose. Soft, creamy mouthfeel, with a smooth finish. The aroma is mostly cereal, and the hops give it a light bitterness. That bitterness gets sharper along the way, but overall an easy-going lager. My first foray into Latvian beer has been an enjoyable one.

SarkyNorthener (1720) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2013
Bottle from Eastern European shop. Yellow beer with medium foamy head and a little lacing. Looks better than most pale lagers. Aroma is metalic and grassy. The taste is a little sweetcorn and mild herbs. Slight sweetness in the aftertaste too, refreshing. Not overly carbonated and decent body for a pale lager. Not bad, better than commercial UK lagers by far.
