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.

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.

Pours pale golden with a big white head. Aroma is mostly malty. Taste is very light and watery, dominated by sweetish maltiness. A hint of bitterness at the finish. Soft CO2. Very simple bulk lager. (1 pint can, best before 7 apr 2015)

Brainiac (176) - Riga, LATVIA - AUG 1, 2014
0.5l aluminum can. Weak aroma, some head but probably because of carbon dioxide injected although its weak on tongue. Weak hop sensations on tongue, but some strong feelings of it in medium lenght aftertaste.

MarkoNm (1023) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 6, 2014
Pours a quite pale golden color, topped with a small and quickly disappearing white head. A relatively strong malty aroma with some skunky smell present. The taste is quite sweet, lots of malts and cardboard feel to it. Slight bitterness in the finsih, but not enough. Too sweet to be really enjoyable.
