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.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 !!! :)

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Place Luxembourg, Brussels. Golden body with big head. Nose of sweet and malts and corn. Taste is not bad at all, malts and some caramel in the house. Light syrupy texture. Went down well as I was doing yard work.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On keg in Riga. Pours a blonde colour with a fair white head. Aroma is very bready with caramel and light grassy hops. Similar bready flavour with mild bitterness and grassy hops again. A little oily mouth-feel with mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. Caramel linger. Not too bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Unusual creamy aroma. Slightly hazy, rich golden colour. Strange flavour for a pale lager - butter and cloves, slightly sweet. Interesting, different and not bad.

Bottle. Slightly hazy gold with a White head. Aromas are grain with wheat and hints of corn. Some cream and citrus. Flavours are sweet grain with hints of sweet caramel. Soft lemon with a buttery slick palate. Spritzy carbonation. Not bad.
