2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Bottle at a tasting in Uppsala, July 2012. Thanks SaintMatty.
Almost clear golden with a medium white head. This was not that sweet. Bread, malt, some notes of metal and very light notes of hops. Drinkable.

A little bitter. But on the whole it does what it should do and is a fine thirst quencher.

Mid gold, tiny head. Pleasant sweet light malt aroma. Sweet soft bready taste at first, but the bitterness builds up and becomes annoying after a while.

Draught (Paddy Whelans, Riga) - Dark gold/amber with a white head. Malty and grainy aroma. Clean tasting with malt and a bit of citrus. Well made, but nothing special.
