2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle (Eastern European Foods, Glasgow):
A weird, skunky aroma coupled with some sweet butter, corn and bread as well as some cheap lager hops and malts.
Light, slightly amber straw colour with a small white head on the top. Very much a cheap pale lager in appearance.
Sweet malts kick things off along with some butter and vanilla, neither what I was expecting from this to begin with. There is a slight spicy tanf and a lot of corn to round things off with.
Quite light with a slightly spicy palate and medium carbonation levels. It is also quite plain and unexciting with a hint of alcohol right at the end and some grain too.
A poor, cheap pale lager and not as good as I recall from my time in Latvia a few years ago although that could be down to my palate changing quite a bit since then.
