3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent would be overstating this beer. There’s simply much better options in latvia (even from aldaris!) Simply disappointed with the weak, oily flavor and boring palette. Visually it’s pretty nice though. Bottled, 1/2 liter, rimi, riga

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden to brown with medium white lasting head. Lacing very nicely.
Aroma.. nose some not very amusing herbal. light malty. Same goes to flavour only if you push your senses to the max, there is some notes of caramel. Sweet, with bit of sourness and very light bitter finish.
Overall.. goods.. nice look, easy drinking, refreshing.

bottle from Rimi Centrs, Riga.
Thick white head. Clear light amber pour. Ok. I was expecting a darker beer with more flavour

Bottle at Dan N. thanks.
Light beige head. Dark yellow color.
Much sulphur and coocked vegetables in the aroma. Some dark roasted malts in the taste and a balanced bitterness. Good body.

negative surprise here with a very common type of beer and common bulk beer flavours.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
courtesy of Per - pours a clear amber beer under a little beige foam left; the nose is dusty and herbal, medicinal; moderate malt backbone and a low carbonation; short and dry herbal and slightly vegetable-like finish - dubious

jak na Łotwę to zupełnie niezłe piwko. Fajna mięciutka woda, nieźle wchodzi choć niezbyt dobrze skomponowane nuty słodkie z gorzkimi i kwaśnymi.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
In bottle. Pours a golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of bready yeast, caramel and Ovaltine malt. Similar flavours. A little oily with mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. Light bitterness and a caramel linger.

Deep amber pour with a little bit of light malt sweetness. A bit of caramelly character along with a touch of soft fruitiness. Simple but not unpleasant. Reminds me of some Mexican examples. A little faint herbal flavour on the finish.

Bottled, thanks SaintMatty! Brownish amber, firm head. Mid sweet with plenty of bready malt. Medium bodied with relaxes mouthfeel. Dominated by dough, low bitterness. Surprisingly nice.
