Marduk (2528) - 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.

RuneStumo (2144) - 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.

Golden yellow color, medium head, nice bubbly aspect. Light notes of malty, dried grassy, wheat. Little watery taste, not much crisp and with a light bitter content.

estpiwo (1268) - ESTONIA - AUG 29, 2007
Bottled beer. Real good! My favorite Latvian beer. Beginning is sweet and malty and end is bitter and hoppy.

BeerSkull (1234) - SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2011
Slightly fruity malt aroma. Sour and tangy malt flavor with a vaguely grassy hop tone and with a hint of alcohol. Boring!

thirstyrabbit (1065) - 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.

dnoaksson (653) - , SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2011
Mycket har nog inte sagts om Piebalga Alus, troligen för att det kräver en Nobelprisvinnande poet för att få ned upplevelsen på papper. Ölet är som en tapet man sett varje dag de senaste tjugo åren: en blind fläck i den del av hjärnan som registrerar och handlägger sinnesintryck.

Vells (622) - LATVIA - DEC 16, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2014 Hazy golden with medium head, lasting OK. Aroma.. Dominating hops, some alcohol and light notes of citrus. Grassy Quite bitter all the way with dry bitter finish. Quite OK beer thou its too expensive for quite OK

zenkis (539) - 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.
