2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours pale like white wine with white frothy medium top, medium lacing even. Aroma - mostly malt, corn and a minimal sweet hoppy (like Saaz). Taste - sweetish malty with minimal light from hopping. Palate - above medium body, watery but thick also texture, lively carbonation, light dry finish, bitter but weird, not herbal aftertaste. O.A. - not pleasant beer cause of unknown malt as an ingredient.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2009 Rating only from bottle, keg not a good sample
Draught (Bralis Krogs, Riga)
Clear rich yellow, small white head. Dusty aroma. A little alcoholic taste. Thin lagery taste too, but can’t get far beyond the booze. Thin. Blah. Bleh. (4-2-3-2-4=1.5)
Rerate - 500ml bottle (Riga Airport) - gift from Serge at work - thanks!
Slightly buttery smell, artichoke dip, but I had just been slicing lemons. Pleasantly beery. Taste in the mouth good mix of malt and herby hops. Finish a touch mouldy in some ways, but that might just be dusty hops misinterpreted. It’s not an unpleasant finish. Good but simple lager, easy to drink and tasty. (5:2+:5:3:10=2.5)

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught @ Alus Krogis "Bralis"
Golden color, small white head. Aroma is slightly sour and malty. Malty, metallic, lacks hop character of unfiltered version, so not so interesting brew. Dry aftertaste.
