Warning! Early amateur rating! Full bodied lager with a strength of taste you would associate with a much stronger lager. Slighty bitter finish. Alright.

MiP (13799) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle, 5.6%. Weak grassy hop aroma. Clear dark golden colour. Stable white head. The flavour does have some OK grassy hops, but it is also a little rough. Good mouthfeel.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2014 Tap (Alus Arsenals, Riga) (6:4:6:4:12=3.2)
Milky grains, plenty in aroma, but tons in the taste. So milky and soft. Has an interesting quirk as you swallow, but it’s Piebalgas, you expect some quirks. I think this is what the brewer intended, so putting more weight behind this rating.
Rerate of: 500ml bottle (3:2:3:2:5=1.5)
Mid yellow, thin head. Slightly light mushroomy aroma, but not much. Passable mouthfeel, gives an early warning that there’s a pungent hoppiness and some maltiness. When swallowed, it leaves something somewhere between iffy and dodgy in your mouth, hard to describe where on that spectrum it lies. Some aspects aren’t a complete disaster, it’s definitely made from ingredients that make beer. And dead rats. Finish alas takes some of the more unpleasant aspects of the taste, and punishes you even more. I’m left with rubber or plastic, and grass.
rerate of Draught (?, Kuldiga) (3-2-1-1-2=0.9)
Light gold, thin head. Pungent aroma. Outrageous taste - bitter and super-nasty. John liked it, and it wasn’t off. Just horrid. Fishy. Metallic.

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2011
Tap at Pale golden pour, the aroma is moderately sweet. A simple sort of pale malt aroma with a little bit of light zesty character and some light floral character. A pretty nice, fresh tasty lager. A little bit of lingering zestiness on the finish.
