COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1122) - FINLAND - JUN 24, 2009
Can. Golden colour with a vanishing medium sized head. Malty aroma. The flavour is sweetish malt with some grassy notes. Not the worst pale lager, but not the best either.

Bottle. Weak taste, hoppy beer, some malt flavour to speak of. Just about average.

estpiwo (1277) - ESTONIA - JUN 1, 2009
New can - 1 pint. This beer brewed in Tartu and at the same time A.LeCoq released new canned Alexander - 1 pint, 5,2%. Same beers? This beer - nothing interesting. Not bad, but ...

rosenbergh (6665) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2009
500 ml can. From Latvia. Pale golden yellow colour with fluffy white vanishing head. Malty aroma. Flavour is definitely malty and grassy. Unfortunaly flat. I had higher hopes for this one.

OleR (4799) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2008
Canned. Pale, bright golden with a one-finger stable white head. Weak aroma; light malty and unfresh cardboardy hop aroma. Sugary grain flavor. Stale bitterness. Body is light. Finish is sour. Beer is crap.

JonnyDr (132) - , Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2008
Fairly generic yellow pour with grain, grain and water. Nice bitter finish but doesn’t stand out.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - AUG 20, 2008
Good, very nice, but another Latvian lager, nothing special, would need to drink more to get used to it.

ekstedt (5399) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2008
Sampled at Gothenburg Beer Festival 2008. Pale golden with medium white head. Earthy and honeyish malt aroma with notes of potatoe. Spritzy mouthfeel. Sweet with low bitterness.

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 3, 2008
50 cl can with "limited edition" packaging. Thin, watery, sweetish, some bitterness in the finish, but it is not very pleasant. There are many Lativian beers that are more premium than this!

downender (6200) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2008
500ml Bottle from an East European grocers in Bristol. Pale gold with a slight white head. Sweet grain aroma followed by a sweet malt flavour and a short dry finish. Ok.
