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.

Marduk (2594) - 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.

zenkis (551) - 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.

ramboraffe (355) - SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2014 500 ml bottle. Clear golden with white head. Smell is lager yeast and some citrus. Taste is sweet malt with funky body and low to medium bitterness.
