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.

50 cL bottle thanks to my colleague Daria for bringing me this! Pours yellow clear with a little white head. Mild malty and hay aroma. Flavour is slight grainy and grassy, but okay with a decent bitter finish.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - 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

Leighton (17802) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle at home in London - courtesy of the Kris Wines. Pours clear, light yellow with a wimpy, white cream head. The nose carries simple dry doughy pale malts, some metal, hay. Light to medium sweet flavor with cereal, lightly biscuity pale malts, white bread, white sugar, light bitter hay. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Sweet finish, ever so slightly syrupy, with more cereal, dry white bread, faint bitter hay, suggestions of grass and biscuits. Pretty solid pale lager, though just a touch syrupy at times.

Draught at Hanza Hotel, Riga. Pale yellow, decent white head. Vegetable aroma. Weak bread and vegetable flavor, with a quite pleasant spicy hoppy finish.

harrisoni (16849) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2015
Can from Prince International Supermarket, Ashford. Clear pale gold colour lasting white head. Sweetish cereal aroma. Touch of cardboard. In the mouth the flavour is not awful, some cereal. Some lemon. It’s perfectly fine. Why it’s only got a score of 6 I don’t know. Not sure I’ll go all Leighton over the score, but I’ve had many more worse beers. OK premium lager. Oh and love the little foil cap on the top that protects the ring pull. I’ve dropped my initial score from 2.8 as it got a bit too cerealy and pukey towards the end.
