Really proud by te firsts Latvia’s ale. Sometimes difficult to evaluate, but really a good ale, which bitterness corresponds well with its name.

Benzai (14122) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2013
33cl bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Hazy orange color, small, a bit soapy white to off-white head. Smell malts, hops, lightly pine and a bit fruity. Taste malts, hops, lightly piney, bitter and slightly fruity. A bit thin, but it was poured very cold so that might have to do with it as well. Nice beer though.

zenkis (754) - Ogre, LATVIA - OCT 27, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2013 Clear, intensive aroma of plums with tones of citrus hops. Amber in color it pours and thin, white layer on top it has. Simple bitterness with nice dry finish. Above medium bodied. Not complex flavor. Good one but something not enough. Update: second batch- out of blue in aroma there is some mold, old wood tones, not so fruity in aroma, more matured it seems, flavor although has stayed in same condition - more hopped than malt profile, simple one to me. Seems a bit bitter-sour from hoping.

Marduk (6330) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 29, 2013
Tap. Hazy orange color. Small white head, stays. Good lacing. Weak hops, malty, grainy and sweet notes in aroma. Grapefruit, orange peels, fruity, dry hops and mild graininess in flavor. Nice dry hoppy mouthfeel. Very drinkable. Good one!

On tap at Alehouse, Riga. Slightly hazy deep golden with an off-white head. Hoppy and fruity aroma with malt and hints of caramel and berries. Moderate sweet and fruity with balanced bitterness. Medium body with fairly average carbonation. Mild and refreshing pale ale.
