zenkis (594) - Ogre, LATVIA - SEP 27, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2013 Color - pale, golden with small, fast white cap diminishing in spotty layer. Mild malt, overwhelming hops in aroma, but poor intense. Taste is bitter good, min sweet, no sourness.Below medium body, watery in mouthfeel, min dry finish. This one with "Bauskas Gaišais" is one of two LV lagers who is not "typical" in my opinion -loaded with some aroma hops also, not grassy as mayority. Worth attention.

Draught at Alaus Stacija, Riga. (as Piebalgas Nefiltrets, 5.7%) Hazy golden, creamy head. Aroma of sweet malt with slight notes of butter and jelly. Sweet and solid bodied with firm, well rounded mouthfeel. Sugar and salt before a spicy bitterish finish.

thirstyrabbit (1138) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 3, 2012
"Piebalgas Nef." (5,7%) from keg to PET bottle. Semi clear golden body, medium to small head. Fresh malty aroma with some sharpness. It has a bold malty palate but the alcohol taste is very evident, which makes it not so enjoyable.

Marduk (2967) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 27, 2012
Draught (5,7% abv Nefiltrets). Clear deep amber color. Small white head, disappears quickly. Malty, yeast in aroma. Sweet, bitter taste. I can feel alcohol in it so its not that great.

thearmi (23) - Riga, LATVIA - JUL 3, 2012
A floral aroma with quite a strong feel of sweet malt. Very light, pale in color and quite clear with a minimal head. Rather sweet and a little bit bitter. Quite lively with a pleasant finish.

kolencs (1) - - JUN 19, 2012 does not count
Although the etiquette of the bottle says its non-pasterized it does not generate that very special taste.
