Ernest (6908) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 8, 2002
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow, thin density of small particles. Aroma is lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly malty (grain), with a note of solvent. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Too sweet, with some off-aromas/flavors.

Bottle. Light yellow pour, decent sized head. Syrup like body, but actually a little bit of a malt base there, which was surprising. Could not get much out of the aroma. Taste is standard bad imported Euro lager, insert tinny, corny, grassy adjective here. But I would rate this one slightly higher than most of my failed lcbo experiments, simply because there was a little more flavour in there. Deep down.

Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from lcbo. Tasted in dimple mug. Appearance is clear yellow, very light in colour. Light white head. Light aroma - corn, malt amd grain. Mass produced macro hints.... Taste is sweet with a nasty malt beverage finish. My day of tasting ’baltic’ lagers ends with a fiz.......

Cheap, corn sweetener aroma and flavor. Not a drain pour but had to wolf it down. Look at the bright side: it would beat any mass-produced Amerikansk malt liquor!

tomciccateri (1033) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - FEB 4, 2007
From a 32cl brown bottle with no freshness date. Pours a pale straw color with lasting white head. Perfumy aroma. Ligth body, well carbonated, very mild hop flavor, little hop bitterness, sweet corn-like flavor (DMS?). Might be better if very fresh.

HoppyBudgie (833) - SOLA, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2013
Crappy. One of the blendest Latvian beers i tried. Weak maltyness, too carbonated, and no aftertaste, Left almost a full glass

Bottled, Pasteurised. Pale straw coloured with carbonated head. Saved for the Latvia v Holland game, sweet malt mash with corn notes and a false hoppiness. Doughy, yeasty, but not disgusting.
