Blechhh...nasty off-putting aroma, astringent and slightly hoppy with more twisted dry nastiness. a bit of yeast reflecting the "unpasteurized" on the label, but blechhh regardless

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.

Brainiac (218) - Riga, LATVIA - JAN 9, 2013
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.

Vells (1506) - Rîga, Latvija, LATVIA - DEC 16, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2013 Pale golden with medium to thin white head. Disappearing quite fast. Aroma.. mostly malts, bit grainy and grassy Waterly with unpleasant metallic notes. Not the worst beer, thou if theres choice from other Piebalgas, I would put this away. ......................................... UPDATE on tap from Jaunpiebalga.. awesome brew no metallic no bad sideffects.. malty enjoyable sweetish but balanced on tap goes 3.5, bottle supermarket 2.1

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.

TBone (16080) - 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 (15247) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle, 5.2%. Clear golden colour. Small lacy white head. The flavour has a little spicy hoppiness. OK mouthfeel.

SaintMatty (6734) - 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 (10284) - 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 (13581) - 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
