1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

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 !!! :)

Severe and persistent aftertaste, light caramel, but it’s kind of blurry. While the other is not to drink, then it helps still half-liter bottle

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle from Baltic Branch Dover. Clear golden colour with a creamy white head. Slightly sweet malt aroma and flavours dominate, grainy, very smooth, with very good aromatic and bitter hops. Bitter-sweet overall character, due to the velvety carbonation and the intensive flavours very moreish. Another delicious beer from Bauskas Alus!
