3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had this on tap at the bizarre Lido microbrewery on the outskirts of Riga in Nov 2004 it is housed in a wooden lodge complete with ice rink and kids entertainments quite possible the strangest micro brewery that I have ever been to. Golden colour slightly hazy, large white frothy head, some yeast and malt on the nose, quite tasty and refreshing I had a couple they went down well with some Latvian beer snacks.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy honey color, off-white medium head, lace. Malty, sweetish, sticky nose. Propably tap was not 100%? Crisp, malty, a bit harsh palate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lively amber colour; gentle carbonation and dense head. Aroma has hints of malt and mustiness. Rather tart flavour - not objectionable, but odd for an amber lager. I had it at Stuburags, a Lido restaurant, so there’s no excuses if it was not meant to be sour. Plus, as I said, it worked. Oranges, fruity notes, maybe faint traces of malt round things out. Refreshing.
