2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber in color. Aroma - hoppy, herbal. Enough hopped to hide absence of nobility of components. Light body, too watery.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium beige head. Clear brown body. Perfumy spicy herbal aroma with fruity caramelly notes. Odd. Sweet spicy caramelly taste with chocolatey notes, fairly faint. Mid-bodied. Mild, flattish, smooth mouthfeel. Sweetish fruity papery caramel aftertaste with mealy chocolate notes. Nice, and quite unusual. (0.5l bottle, from Rimi Centrs, Riga.)

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
50cl can from Rimi Juglas centrs, Riga. Pours clear golden brown with an off-white head. Grainy aroma with notes of caramel, cooked vegetables, overripe fruits and hints of herbs and bread. Sweet, slightly unpleasant and somewhat confusing with some unpleasant flavours and a rather mild bitterness. Almost drinkable, but some almost rotten notes makes it difficult. Would prefer to not drink this beer again.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Wouldn’t have pegged this as a Strong PL due to its heavy caramel flavor and dark-ish appearance (strikes me as a replacement for the Tumsais), as well as its now lower ABV (5.8%). But as a dark macro from Riga (not Liepaja as erroneously noted), it’s pretty decent, with layered tastes and a lasting, relatively balanced finished
