1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml bottle. Hazy amber color. Small head. Tin tomatoes, grainy, sweet notes in aroma. Metallic, iron, grainy flavor. It’s not horror, but I don’t want to drink it again.

500ml bottle (Rimi, Riga)
Fairly wholesome, almost yeasty, lager aroma. Very Latvian. Pretty messed up in the mouth, vegetables, and iron. Nasty tinned veg. Full of brewing flaws. Tinned veg, tinned veg, tinned veg, and more tinned veg. Ugh.

Aroma: boiled vegetables, compote, far away malty sweetness. Pours amber with fast white top, no lacing. Taste mild sweet with nice medium bitter, more speaking in aftertaste. Overall - meed more, not beer, taste is only tolerable aspect. Fu... this sh...

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at a tasting in Uppsala, July 2012. Thanks SaintMatty.
Slightly hazy golden with a small white head. Sweet aroma and taste of bread, dough, caramel and something that felt a bit "sour". Drinkable but really nothing to write home about.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy amber, white filmy head. Nose is a confused mess of caramel, bubblegum, malt, dust and walnuts. Taste is more of the same, with more stress on the weird malts. Vaguely dry finish with dust and the same nuttiness as the nose. Has some interesting sides, but way too off balance to be considered good.
