500 ml bottle. From Latvia.
Amber colour. Nutty, woody? and sweet aroma. Sweet, buttery (diacetyl) and nutty flavour. Lots of diacetyl but I like this beer.

Bottle. Golden beer with a fairly strong head. The aroma is fairly yeasty and slightly smokey, and the flavour is malty, gently bitter and mildly yeasty. Overall an average quite yeasty flavoured beer.

Pale golden pour. The aroma is a bit sweet with a little bit of minerally character. As it warms up it’s actually pretty decent. A little bit of light sweetness and some faint herbal character. Pretty decent actually - works with my shishlak.

Pale golden pour. The aroma is quite metallic and a little bit astringent as well. Sort of sweet but there is a touch of woody hop character as well. Light and assertively bitter. Clean though.

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.

Bottle bought in Riga. Golden colour, clear, with small head that does not last long. Aroma is quite unusual: sweet, with butterscotch, intensive honey and floral notes. Medium sweetness. Soft carbonation, medium body. Definitely does not taste like a pale lager. Overall quite pleasant.

Bit changed with times, but decent pale lager. Some maltiness, light grainy, medicine grassy hops, light vegies. Moderate to light sweetness with decent bitterness, bit sharp plastic finish. Quality of this one can quite differ.
This example was more or less standard
