2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Medium sized white head that mostly diminished, very little lacing, transparent, carbonation noted, and a yellow hue. The nose was heavily malty, mildly sweet and lightly hoppy. The flavor was very malty, lightly bitter, a touch of alcohol, and finishes semi-dry. Smooth, semi-dry mouthfeel and medium in body. A strong lager and did not like the taste of this one as it just did not come together for me at all. It tasted cheap and not wanting again.

Thanks, fatphil! Quite discusting aroma. Average-dark colour, big white head. Taste ok, but very weak for its voltage.

500ml bottle. Shared with Tranquillity - sorry!
Pale amber, persistent thin head. Malty lager aroma. Sticky alcoholic palate. Boozy malty taste, little finish. Not too bad for the strength.

Aldaris Stiprais is a clear, pale yellow lager with a small white ring for a head. The aroma is of metallic fruit and cereal. It is medium-light on the palate and reasonably smooth. There are adjuncts and chemical flavors abound. It tastes like a 40.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
500 ml bottle. Easy to drink, crisp Latvian lager. The alcohol in not noticeable at first, and there is a nice light creamy taste. The aftertaste isn’t so good. Skunky bitterness, sugary sweet overkill. Not really recommended, but tolerable and almost enjoyable nonetheless.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverages - 500 ml bottle. Medium golden pour, soft, soapy light white head. Slightly neutral aroma, hint of wort. Some yeasty, grainy notes in the flavor. Just a bit of cake mix sweetness as well, however tastes slighlty worn out - alcohol evident. . Mouthfeel - leaning to the thin side. So-so strong lager.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured out light and yellow with a small head. A slightly skunky crappy taste that did not impress me. The sour taste was suppose to be enjoyable, but it wasn’t.
