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. Pale golden beer with a light frothy head. The aroma is malty and mildly dry, and the flavour is bitter with a malty, sugary and roasted finish. Overall much better than I was expecting, a reasonable malty and dry lager style beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma is grainy malt and grassy hops. The taste is sour malt with a strangely dry and harsh bitterness in the aftertaste. You also get a sticky sweetness in the mouth. Boring!

Can. Limited edition rock ’n’ fun can. Hazy gold on colour with a thin foam. Aromas are grain, corn and butter with traces of apricot and lemon. Flavours are sweet grain with sugar and stewed apple and some citrus. Dry with some soap to finish. Wish I could have had it colder than my fridge could manage. Nice colourful can, though.

Can. It’s a clear, pale golden beer with a small, white head. Fruity, slightly grassy nose with some syrupy sweetness and corn. Sweet, corn-like flavor with a grassy, fruity touch and a faint bitterness. Medium body. Not much bitterness in the finish. Drinkable, but it needs to be cold. 091018
