TBone (12477) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2010
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.

MiP (13535) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle, 5.2%. Clear golden colour. Small lacy white head. The flavour has a little spicy hoppiness. OK mouthfeel.

SaintMatty (5113) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2008
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.

faroeviking (10293) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 2, 2008
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.

FatPhil (9182) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 18, 2008
500ml bottle. 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

omhper (19239) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 25, 2007
Bottled. Pale golden, firm head. Soapy butterscotch aroma. Medium bodied. Some malt sweetness dried out by a fair amount of soapy, flowery resiny hops. Rounded mouthfeel, notes of butter. A beer with character.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2007
(Bottled, BBE 23.6.2007) Clear, deep golden with a large, foamy head. Dull, slightly metallic and cardboardy aroma with some past-its-prime grassy hoppiness and butter. Buttery-malty, lightly metallic flavor with honey and actually some hop bitterness present all the way. Some cardboard, probably since it’s past its BBE. Almost medium-bodied, neutral, pretty dull palate with foamy but not that high carbonation. A surprisingly malty brew with at least some flavors - even if they’re not that pleasant. Seriously, this is not that bad at all.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2007
Golden colored, little white head. Strong Latvian aroma: butter with lemon and some sweet cardboard. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor has even stronger cardboard with also this buttery touch, soft palated. Aftertaste is slightly watery with sweet malts. Standard Latvian.

zziemelis (12) - Rīga, LATVIA - FEB 6, 2006
It tastes a bit grassy and is dedicated to «those who really appreciate the taste of beer», brewed in honour of 15 years of the brewery. Too bitter to drink after You take sauna. Good in small amounts.
