On keg at Lido in Riga. Pours a blonde colour with a fair white head. Aroma is very yeasty. Bready yeast, caramel and barley notes. Flavours of yeast, banana, barley and light caramel. A long yeasty caramel linger. A foamy mouth-feel with mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. Just OK.

Not very exciting. not very sweet and the flavor is not very bold at all. Kind of a funny, metallic aftertaste though.

This is a lot better than I anticipated. body is a golden colour, with lots of nice bubbles floating around. Head is fluffy and white. Aroma is citrus, hops, and grass. Flavour is citrus and hops. A bit of a sour note to it as well. Nice bite in the throat too. Also very refreshing.

Pale gold body topped with a nice and thick bubbly head. Average malty aroma with some pleasant and surprising citrus hints. Taste is fairly bitter, bready, and stronger that I was expecting, but the finish is very discreet. The fact that I drank it after the "best before" day may explain why it was so tasty. Well... good for me!!

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2005
Not bad for Latvia, I suppose. Sure beats the crap outta any American swill. Pours very yellow and slightly cloudy; drinks nice and crisp with just a light hint of hops in the finish. Refreshing lil’ brew.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2005
Medium-gold with a continual stream of bubbles rising towards the paper-thin head. Aromas and flavours work in unison, offering a solid dose of malt and confectionery sugar. The round malt flavour even holds out on the medium-length finish. Quite nice.

Bottle
A: corn, sweet malts, fruity
T:sweet corn/malt, fruity, slight sulfur,br> Not a bad lager. I was worried that I would be opening a bottle of skunk juice, but I was wrong. Nothing really wrong with this beer other then being a macro style lager.

Very light yellow color, but a great taste. Not too bitter, but a crisp beer. Foam is crystal white. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
