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.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, - APR 29, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Fully golden colour, practically no head. Sweetish with a rather full body. Pronounced bitterness in the finish. In style this reminds me of a German "Export" or perhaps "Extra". Presumably from the oldest brewery in the Baltics. 020104

Light golden colour. Nice dense head. Smells of corn and faint malt in the background. Little taste overall. Very forgettable.

5.2% gold in colour with a good head, some malt in the aroma and taste, doesn’t sound good but it was better than most lagers sold in the UK.

Alengrin (4458) - BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2016
Bought online from some Russian supermarket in the Netherlands. Latvian pale lager with thick, regularly shaped, egg-white, heavily ’paper’ lacing and stable head over a cristal clear golden blonde beer with steady fizz. Aroma of soggy chicken corn and sweaty grains, rainwater, damp kitchen cloth, hints of sweetbread, freshly cut grass, raw honey, chalk. Neutral onset with an early sweetish side, clear corn, minerals, softish carbo for this style, very vague salty accent, supple, thin and somewhat oily maltiness in the middle, corn sweetish and maltose-like, very metallic, finishing the same but with a faint hint of grassy hops at the back with very superficial bittering properties; finishes artificially maltose-sweetish and metallic, otherwise rather watery. I had worse than this in this particular style, but not that many: this is below average even for an industrial pale lager, not even ashamed to show its heavily adjunct-laden character. A ’pilsje’ for the uneducated masses.

500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pale yellow colour, small white foamy head that dissipates quickly. Grainy aroma with some malt. Similar flavour. Felt like a light beer. Nothing notable to say about this.
April 2015.

Uhh.. quite a disaster in a bottle. One of the corniest rubbery brews I ver tasted, even beats mexican corn ales. Some grainy maltiness, corn, cardboard, rubbery grassy hop extract. Light sweetness, light bitterness. One time try for ratebeer.
