1.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours golden, clear, bubbly with white head diminishing soon.
Smells like teen after done sport activities, hoppy, boiled, old vegetables.
Strange but taste is better than aroma - mild sweet malty, mild hopped - even light hop bite on tongue. A bit rice in flavor (minus 1 o.a.). Typical hopped lager in LV. Middle body, watery mouthfeel, hmm... not at all dry finish although hopped good. Overall - compared in my small session with "Piebalgas Senču" this one is drinkable indeed - just with nose closed :)

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden with thin white head. Lasting a bit.
Aroma.. a bit of malts, a bit of hops, grassy, some citrus.
Less bitter from all Piebalgas brews, with some notes of sourness.
Quite OK refreshing beer. Not very enjoyable, but if you are thirsty..

Little remains blank. After all, is nothing, but it’s true and uniqueness effect is far from bright. Perhaps it is not recommended.
