1.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
First aroma is vomit, than comes canned peas, than ... well no, it shouldn’t be beer aroma. Weird is that after some time aroma stabilizes in tolerable hops semisweet tones. Pours pale amber, small cap. Taste not bad - some sweetness from malt, mild bitter from hops, a bit bready. Although a bit rice in flavor too. Light body, watery mouthfeel, above medium carbonation. In conclusion - will not suggest this to my enemy too.

0,5l glass. Aroma is weak and soft hoppy. Taste is the same, but no bitterness in it. Aftertaste is not long in being hoppy, but that pure bitterness stays and its long.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A light beer with some sweetness in aroma from the hayish malt. Very clear liquid, pale colour and white head. Light sweetness. Lively carbonation, light - bodied. Feels like it has less alcohol than it actually has.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled (from Rimi, Riga, BB 02/2010)
Clear yellow color, huge white cloudy head. Unclean buttery-diacetylic nose with some kind of metallic, grassy and earthy notes. Taste is similar, but actually it is not so bad: this beer has some Czech character with butterness and some hops. I could call this even a pilsner. Unfortunately lots of unclean flavors too.

500ml Bottle - Golden in colour with a small white head. Malty and grainy aroma with some bready notes. Bittersweet malty taste with a lingering but not overwhelming finish. Not bad and drinkable.

Bottle. Deep golden with a small white head. Grainy bit mouldy aroma. Nasty sweet grainy maltish flavour. One of the worst Latvian beer I’ve had.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale gold, thin head. Very simple lager aroma (note - I’d been eating spicy food earlier, might not be at top sensitivity). Lively carbonation, somewhat watery in the mouth. Taste is a simply creamy maltiness. Some bitterness too but not a huge finish to it. Fairly pleasant, but not anything special
