djoeye (1839) - Tromsř, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2013
I drove into Bauska a friday afternoon, and went into Rimi Hypermarket, where I found this beer (among several others). Bauska is a nice little city in southern Latvia, only 20 kms from Lithuania. The stay at the ABC Hotel was comfortable. Bauskas Alus Gaisais 4,8% pours an offwhite head on the golden yellow body. Possible to make it tall for some seconds, but it diminishes without much patterns. Scents of sweet malts, faint hops, hints of honey. Taste; grains, hops, sweet malts, and some seconds I wonder if it is a bit perfumed. Mouthfeel, there is some bitterness in a gentle way into this beer. End; grains, hops, these distinct bitterness signals, and maybe something that makes me think of almonds dipped into honey and then roasted. Overall this beer is worth being made. The city Bauska should be proud of its brewery and the newly renovated castle, Bauskas Pils.

Rune (8484) - Tromsř, NORWAY - APR 21, 2013
Thanks to Elisabeth and Stefan for sharing a 500ml bottle. Slightly unclear golden body. Tight, near-white head with satisfying retention. Sweet and dry pale malts to the nose. Taste of sweet corn, almond and sweet, bland fruits. Sweet ending. Watered and floury. Just about drinkable (session in Tromsř, 16.04.2013).

imdownthepub (10646) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2013
Bottled, 500ml from Grosik European Supermarket, Banbury. Amber with scummy head. This tasted a little strange, sweet maltiness but with an odd vegetable note, I like Maeib’s description below. Thin, boiled notes. I didn’t really like this too much.

Splasenec (3) - CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 19, 2013 does not count
Although the packaging of this beer doesn’t say anything about it to be unfiltered, it was very cloudy. Head lasted quite a long time, but the sparkle is very weak (only a few small strips). The aroma that is not intense, can’t make you interested. The taste is sweet, as if there is a wheat malt contained. But it isn’t writen on the label either. This beer is suitable perhaps only as an example of what’s brewed in the world, but as a common beverage isn’t interesting.

Brainiac (162) - Riga, LATVIA - JAN 8, 2013
0,5l glass. Strong hoppy aroma, solid taste with very much bitterness in the end. Surprised to see it’s a pale lager! Kind no yeast at all, very clear taste. Carbs a medium.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2012
Bottled 03/11/12. An amber coloured beer with an off-white head. A sweet and milky nose. Sweet in the mouth also with an odd tomato flavour. Vegetatively strange and not enjoyable.

Notably hoppy PL, but a good head and lively carbonation. not bad with spicier food

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 Here it comes... I can not be objective about my favorite beer in my country. Casual, mostly bottled, but in few bars in Riga available on tap (to me more dense for this beer). Aroma and taste is not very intense but hoppy indeed, malt. It could be more to bitter style rather than pale lager - I am inclined to agree. Color is pleasant amber. Light body, compote texture, minimal dry finish. Only criticism is that maybe it is too watery when bottled. White head foam is ok lasting. In conclusion - cause my favorite is IPA, maybe this one most reminds me of ...Worth attention !!! :)
