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.

Bottle. Pours clear light golden with stable white head. Clear aroma of hop with a grainy note. Hoppy and malty, a little sweety taste. A dryish aftertaste. OK.

Bottle, 5.2%. Almost clear golden colour. small white head. The flavour is a little bit papery. Tastes unfiltered, and also looks it a bit, I suppose. But not bready or yeasty in the good way.

Naprawdę średnie piwo jeśli chodzi o smak. W sapachu słoma i kukurydza. Za to wygląd piany i klarowność bardzo dobra. Zwłaszcza piana która wystaję o kilka centymetrów ponad szklankę.

Bog-standard European PL, with decent foam but a severely corny aftertaste. More hoppy than usual (on tap in Riga)

puszka hipermarket na Łotwie (chyba Maxima) nie moja bajka całkowicie słód jakiś sztuczny pojawiający się na końcu, smak bardzo mineralny. Decyzja jednoznaczna - więcej nie kupować!!

tommann (3236) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2012
500ml can. Pours light gold with a thin, frothy head. Aroma is really strong corn with a tiny bit of lemon. Taste has a minerally start with corn on the bitter finish.

Bottle from the Baltic Supermarket on the Narborough Rd, Leicester. Gusher- unusual for a clear-bottled lager. My Latvian isn’t too clever, but I think this is also unpasteurised. Brilliant gold with barely a bubble of carb and an uneven tuft of foam. Decent hay and pine on nose; hutch, a little lemon jelly. Pleasant grassy lager with soft condition, bread stick and beeswax notes, rubber hints. Slightly pilsener-like in the finish with a bitterness that lingers. Has that slightly mineral edge I remember all draught Latvian beer having in Riga, irrespective of style. Decent lager.
