3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Nice hoppy fruity aroma, clear golden yellow colour. Slighty dry hoppy flavour, smells better than it tastes but still another good Latvian lager.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
I drank this from the bottle into my Rochefort glass...The beer pours a light honey gold with lots of carbonation, albeit pretty light taht falls quickly, decent lacing....The aroma is medium gives off honey, lots of yeast a little hop/skunk finish but very light...After tasting this I am super surprised by the rating, no way this is a C beer. The tasate is light but its tasty, light hops, yeasty, a very crisp drinker. This is what a light beer should be, tasty, easy to drink and lacking skunk. Great effor there.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My 9th of the 10 LCBO vapid Slavic lagers. This one wins points for aroma....it lterally fills the room with floral and fruity accented malt aromas..excellent! Clear gold color in the glass...short lived white cap but good lacing. Aroma is a strong blend of ripe apple, floral hops and sweet grains...almost like someone in Latvia is trying to brew a German helles with bohemian character. Medium-light body front side is all-malty sweet but not cloying with a fair balance from (surely spalter and Hershbruker) give the taste a woodsy earthy tone with the nice malt delivery.....sweet finish that dries up later...biscuit after taste...nice Slavic lager.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a one-finger white head that stays leaving a thick lace. Almost clear pale amber color. Light-medium carbonation. Faint hoppy nose. Starts clean and crisp with an even mix of hops and malt, faint hoppy finish. $1.75 for a 500ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, MA - had to get this one Latvia is a new country (#61).

Fruity, floral and malty. Grassy hops. I was rather surprised by this. Looked rather thick when I poured it into my pint.

Originally rated May 2005. Good foamy lacing and the creamy-fizz head has average retention. The colour of this brew is golden, but with a touch of amber. Quite nice. At first, I could smell euro malt, but then the hop became predominant. Crisp mouthfeel. Smooth start, going to a slight bitter finish. Biscuit afteraste. Non-repulsive lager.
