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.

mzaar (1549) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2014
Flaska @ Don Basil, Ventspils. Klar guldfärgad med stort vitt skum. Dofter av gräs, frukt och örter. Smakinslag av gräs, örter och malt. Viss pepprighet i eftersmaken. Extra plus för en snygg etikett, sådant ska inte underskattas.

Clear gold with a good white head. Citrusy hop notes on the nose. Same bitter citrus on the palate. Decent enough lager, slightly fizzy bitter finish.

RuneStumo (2167) - FØRRESFJORDEN, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2014
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

Discore (66) - - FEB 23, 2014
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.

RihardsF (81) - LATVIA - JAN 8, 2014
Pours amber light, crystal clear, with white foam. Aroma of hops. Taste is bitter from hops a bit floral, then some sweetness of malts are noticeable and in the aftertaste also some bite of hops. Quite thin body. Nice lager, thou a bit over carbonated.

Oakrock (102) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2013
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.

visionthing (2621) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2013
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)

larsga (6143) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 28, 2013
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.)
