2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On keg at the Alus Arsenals beer restaurant in Riga. Pours a blonde colour with a fair white head. Aroma of lemon, bready yeast, caramel and barley. Similar flavours with a little lemon linger. Very thin with a foamy mouth-feel, very low carbonation and light CO2 prickle.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Sweet malt aroma with a strange flavoring similar to stale honey. Sweet malt taste with a weird flavor (probably honey) and a dull bitterness in the aftertaste. Rather distasteful!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml bottle. From Estonia/Latvia. Thanks FatPhil!
Clear deep golden colour with average sized white head.
Quite familiar Brūveris aroma with some honey, spices, mild metal and candle wax.
Flavour is malt, mild hops, vegetables, sweet honey and some spices. Dryish aftertaste. I’m not quite sure if Brūveris house aroma/flavour is what I really dig. Slightly watery.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml Bottle - Golden with a white head. Grassy and malty aroma with a hint of hay. Malty taste with moderate bitterness and hints of grain. Drinkable and rather refreshing, but nothing exciting.
