The history of Cesu beer can be traced back to the thirteenth century when a beer brewery was founded right in Cesu castle. The chronicles of the year 1590 present evidence for the popularity of the particular beer brewery at the time. Due to the new factory in Cesis the new beer corresponds to nowadays demands while preserving the flavour of natural beer.

500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pale yellow colour, small white foamy head that dissipates quickly. Grainy aroma with some malt. Similar flavour. Felt like a light beer. Nothing notable to say about this.
April 2015.

Uhh.. quite a disaster in a bottle. One of the corniest rubbery brews I ver tasted, even beats mexican corn ales. Some grainy maltiness, corn, cardboard, rubbery grassy hop extract. Light sweetness, light bitterness. One time try for ratebeer.

Van de tap op de boot tussen ventspils en lubeck. Goudgeel met een witte kraag die snel weg is. Graan voert de boventoon met een hint van gras. Suf en zoet lager.

harrisoni (17282) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2015
Can from Prince International Supermarket, Ashford. Clear pale gold colour lasting white head. Sweetish cereal aroma. Touch of cardboard. In the mouth the flavour is not awful, some cereal. Some lemon. Itís perfectly fine. Why itís only got a score of 6 I donít know. Not sure Iíll go all Leighton over the score, but Iíve had many more worse beers. OK premium lager. Oh and love the little foil cap on the top that protects the ring pull. Iíve dropped my initial score from 2.8 as it got a bit too cerealy and pukey towards the end.

berkshirejohn (5988) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2015
50cl can from my local Londis. A bright straw colour, with a loose white head that vanishes immediately; sweet grainy aroma, but also some sweet apples giving a cider like quality; sweet corn syrup taste; with a reasonable grassy bitterness; and a sticky finish. Just another dull lager.

Senka (1059) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 24, 2015
From the Germany trip 2010: Same as A Le Coq Pils. Not bad. Not good, Just a hoppy lager.

Golden colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, grainy. Flavour is malt, grainy. Medium to thin body. Boring beer.
