3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
