25.04.2014. on tap at the Egle, Riga. Golden yellow colour with white head. Aroma is grassy. Very fresh with green apples and fresh hops. Aftertaste is medium bitter with nice crispy bitterness. Body is medium with good flavours of malt. For a pale lager this is a pretty good beer.

0,5l butelka kupione na Statoilu na Łotwie. Smaczne piwo z charakterem -trochę goryczy dośdużo słodu, ale ciekawe jak będzie z utrzymaniem jakości smaku bo jak się przekonałem z tym na Łotwie jest problem

Bottle to glass. Golden, clear, medium white head. Neutral hop aroma, slight hint of butter and yeast. Taste - sweet, but since it’s a bit watery, the sweetness is just the right amount. Medium carbonation. Thin body, but with a lasting and pleasant finish. Underrated enjoyable pale lager.

Interesting Beer and extra plus for traditional Taste. I Would Say it has a Taste of So called soviet beers. Sweet, coriander (rubber) and basement. Taste trip back to 70’s with modern purity and freshness.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 16, 2014 Better fresh on tap, quite decent lager.
50cl bottle from Riga Airport. Pours clear golden with a white head. Weak malty aroma with notes of herbs, grass and alcohol. Medium sweet with a herbal bitterness. Slightly unpleasant and not far from the usual pale lagers, but slightly more flavour and bitterness, and more alcohol. Not my cup of tea. (3-3-4-3-8)

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Small white head. Clear yellow body with carbonation. Mealy herbal aroma with grassy mealy notes. Dry-sweet herbal grassy taste with spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish, coarseish mouthfeel. Dryish herbal fruity aftertaste with spicy earthy grassy notes. Not bad, but a little boring. (0.3l draft at Citi Laiki, Riga.)
