Flaska @ Don Basil, Ventspils. Gyllengul öl med stort vitt skum. Dofter av gräs och örter. Smaken är densamma med inslag av viss citrusbeska och lätt pepprighet.

larsga (6929) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 28, 2013
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.)

Pours amber light, crystal clear, with white foam. Aroma of hops. Taste is bitter from hops a bit floral, then some sweetness of malts are noticeable and in the aftertaste also some bite of hops. Quite thin body. Nice lager, thou a bit over carbonated.

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.

thirstyrabbit (1537) - 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.

joergen (24512) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2006
Bottle. Clear golden coloured with a white head. Aroma of malts and fruits. Flavour of malts, caramel, fruits and hops.
