Tap to bottle, Market stand, Riga. Clear golden color. Small size, yellow head, stays. Buttery, bready, grainy aroma. Mild hops, bready, grainy taste. Very thin and watery. No carbonation, bland. Not the freshest example I must say.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Short off white head. Clowdy yellow color. Tutti fruitti aroma with some smoke as well. The smoke is also present in the taste and give a astringent taste and the beer also has some acidity.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle with no commercial label. Head is small, all from natural carbonisation. Color is amber. Taste gives you a little, for pale lager, bitterness, but the aftertaste drives you right into heaven. Fantastic yeast taste, not too strong. One of the best (my exp isn’t big though) light beers I’ve ever tasted.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy gold, almost no head. Malty nose with honey, toffee and banana. Taste is malty with aforementioned banana and toffee hints with some added buttery notes. Some hoppiness in the finish. Flat carbonation, watery palate. The wateriness keeps it from being "all that it could be". Still, decent.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Decanted from 2L plastic bottle (Riga Market)
5 Very simple light grainy aroma
2 Pale, clear, small brief head.
5 Fruity retronasals. Light graininess, touch of vanilla, pleasant bitterness, fresh grassy hops, however, it’s a bit dishwatery.
2 Fairly watery palate, low carbonation. Finish quite hoppy, but a bit minerally, and papery.
9 Has ups and downs, but the watery nature and minerals detract a bit too much
