Clear glass bottle with a "finger-destroyer" cap - I can’t think of a worse combination for presenting beer. Golden lager body, small head. Bready and malty aroma with some CO2 sourness. Taste is the same. Body is a bit fuller than average macro lager but otherwise it’s a very generic lager. Reminds me of some Baltika beers. Slightly sweet finish.

0.5L bottle. Strong bread, hop aroma. Taste is sweet an light lemon flavor. Hops goming out in the end again and this takes normal tasteful finish. Drinkable sometimes

0,5L alu-can alumīnija var, Rimi hipermārkets, Bauska Latvija. Abv 5,2. Scents of meadows, hops, propane. Smaržas pļavu, apiņi, propāns. Airy white head diminishing without trace on the straw yellow body. Gaisīgs balta galva pazūd bez pēdām uz salmu dzeltenā ķermeņa. Tastes grains, hops, orange, sweet malts. Garšo graudi, apiņus, apelsīnu augļus, salds alus šķirnes. The malt and hints of honey, dominate this beer. Iesals un mājieni medus, viņi dominē šo alu. On palate somewhat oily. Uz aukslējām nedaudz eļļains. Overall alright. Kopumā viss ir labi.

Can. A pale golden beer with just a tiny, white head on top. The aroma is fruity and grainy with dusty malts. Rather similar flavor, equally uninteresting, but at least there’s a vague hoppy bitterness. Thin on the palate, medium body and pleasant carbonation. Short finish. A superbly uninteresting beer, but at least it doesn’t taste bad. 130111

Clear Yellow, Big Head, Decent Lacing. Funky Aroma, not exactly skunk, but something along those lines. Would not be surprising since it came in a white bottle... Malt, corn, buttery, alcohol shines at the end... Gone bad or plain no good beer. Either way, nothing good or interesting here. Drinkable, but one was plenty for me... Pass it...

500ml bottle. Pale yellow color. Almost no head. Metallic, sweet, funky aroma. Metallic, syrup, sweet, malty and watery flavor.

50 cl bottle from shop in Jurmala. Golden colour, white head. Little hoppy taste. Average beer. The label said Premium - nothing Premium here.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Half liter bottle from Beer Run. Pours a clear golden color with a large creamy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of raw grain, floral hops. The taste is sweet malts, corn, a tart grape-like note, green banana. Thin bodied. A little different, at least.

Crappy. One of the blendest Latvian beers i tried. Weak maltyness, too carbonated, and no aftertaste, Left almost a full glass

50cl can from Riga Airport. Pours clear pale golden with a small white head. Getting pretty tired of these now - just another standard pale lager. Weak malty aroma with hints of fruits and cooked vegetables. Sweet, slightly watery and not much bitterness to speak of. Very uninteresting, but drinkable. Fair enough, but nothing premium about this.
