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.

Good, very nice, but another Latvian lager, nothing special, would need to drink more to get used to it.

KnutAlbert (5758) - 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!
