3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Deep copper with white to beige head.
Aroma.. not intense malty, light caramel, bit fruity
Sweet with sour bitter finish. Sourness is not very pleasant this time.
Decent beer, thou sourness even metallic touch in finish spoils the pleasure

The beer looks quite nice. There is a nice layer of white foam. The beer is dark amber ore a little light beer. The beer looks quite nice. The smell is special. It reminds me of sausages. The aroma is kind of savory and porky. It is weird, but nice. This savory smell is the strongest. There isn’t really much else. The taste also has this savory sausage taste. Really funny. There is also a ice bitter hoppyness in the taste. The beer is quite nice. Latvian beer isn’t bad.

And here comes my overrate of my favorite brewery in Latvia near close which I spent my childhood. It fits my soul so well in each sip, I was kinda underrating for myself :) The taste - it is simple but its mine.. :)

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Quality, with a nice layered mouthfeel and slight honey notes with a bit of caramel and malt, but unfortunately weighed down with a nearly sandpaper-sharp hop finish; not enjoyable

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl bottle from Riga Airport. Pours clear mahagoni with a small, off-white head. Aroma of caramel and malt with some roasty and earthy notes and a hint of alcohol. Sweet, caramelly and mild malty with a hint of bitterness. Medium body with fairly average carbonation. Quite okay, but boring and a bit too much on the sweet side for my taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big brown lasting head. Clear deep brown body with light carbonation. Light roasty earthy caramelly aroma with spicy minty herbal notes. Dry-sweet earthy minty musty taste with grainy compost notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish fizzy mouthfeel. Dryish minty caramelly earthy aftertaste with roasty dusty wooden notes. Interesting and unusual, but a bit musty and earthy. (0.3l draft at Citi Laiki, Riga.)

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
My Latvian roomate brought this home as part of a tour of Latvian beers. Pours a dark caramel color, no head. Smell is cloyingly sweet. The taste follows suit with an almost undrinkable sweetness. Not the best introduction to Latvian beer.
