I give it maximum, because this is really my all-time favourite. It has its very special taste, not easily understandable, but especially distinct. I may even doubt, whether it may be classified as a Lager - it may go as a Bitter as well (although it is sweetish by taste).

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.5L brown bottle, rimi, spice, Riga. Unpastuerized. Pours light amber with a thick white head, subsiding slowly. Scent is light malt. Taste is dense lager with citrus middles and grassy notes. As it warms up, also nutty and wood/mushroom-like notes. Finish is slightly bitter, transitioning to slightly sticky as it warms up. Great.

Bottled beer. Real good! My favorite Latvian beer. Beginning is sweet and malty and end is bitter and hoppy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden clear with medium white top. Aroma is dust, malts, grains, cardboard. Taste is quite same, some more bitterness and oregano jumps up. Medium carbonisation and after stays quite long grainy and bitter. Not bad lager!
