500ml bottle (Stockmann, Riga)
4+ Simple light lagery aroma, touch of huskiness, but pretty bland.
4- Very bold caramelly red, small white head.
5- Simple bready taste, with some bitter huskiness too.
3 Unexceptional palate, pleasant carbonation. Not too thin, not to sweet or heavy. Finish is fairly bitter with noble hops, a touch biting occasionally, assisted by the carbonation. A little grassy perhaps too, and definitely there’s some minerally aspects too.
9 Fairly unexciting, but a fairly full flavoured lager. Would massively benefit from being unfiltered and fresh.

Bottle sample at the tasting. Thanks Ariel. Clear red amber with off-white head. Weak malt and caramel aroma. Light flavors that follow the nose, moderate sweet with light bitter finish. Light-med body, watery texture.
