Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 17, 2011
On keg at Lido in Riga. Pours a golden colour with a fair beige head. Aroma of caramel, yeast and biscuity malt. Similar flavours with a grassy hop linger. Moderate carbonation with a foamy mouth-feel and a little CO2 prickle. Not bad.

Draught (Staburags, Riga). Scent of tangy butterscotch. Malt flavor with obvious hints of caramel and butterscotch. This beer is really not good! On the verge of undrinkable!

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2011
0.5L pour at LIDO. Amber golden pour with a little bit of white head. The aroma is a little bit sweet and slightly fruity. There is a touch of DMS along with some light malt sweetness. A light floral character but muted. It’s okay though. It’s no cask bitter, that’s for sure.

omhper (19185) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2012 Re-rate, draught at Lido, Riga. Hazy amber, small head. Sweet and doughy. Medium bodied with soft mouthfeel. Bread and some syrup. Light malt bitterness. Draught at Lido, Tallinn, Estonia. Cloudy deep golden, creamy head. Mild citric nose. Sweetish with light-medium body and fairly clean mouthfeel. Some caramel. A little sourish and lacking in depth. Resiny bitterness. Off shape, if it hadn’t been poured at one of Lido’s own establishments I wouldn’t have rated it ,now it’s been in their control all the way to my glass. (4/5/4/2/8=2.3)
