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.)

Rather sweet brew, lots of soft fruit and flowers. Boiled veg - carrots, califlower. Not the first beer to seek out in Latvia!

Sigmund (4958) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2007
500 ml bottle, bought in Riga, as "Piebalgas Alus Piebalga". ABV is 5.6%. This is a "gaisais alus" (= pale beer). Unpasteurised. Pale golden colour, large and lasting white head. Sweetish malty and slightly fruity aroma, hints of honey. Sweet malty flavour, too sweet for a pale lager. Notes of honey. Alcohol is noticeable. Some hops in the finish. Unusual lager, but not undrinkable.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 18, 2011
On keg in Riga. Pours a blonde colour with a thick white head. Aroma of bready yeast and barley with metallic notes. Flavour of bready yeast, caramel, grassy hops and barley. A mild bitter finish with moderate carbonation and a light CO2 prickle. Not great.

Frovigalning (2930) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 29, 2009
It poured a clear golden liquid with a small foam that left some lacing. It didn’t have any odor at all. Tasted like a cheap kind of sparkled water.

visionthing (2624) - 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)
