2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Hazy yellow with a quickly-dissipating big white head. Aroma of grains, bread, hay, yeast (a bit vegetal), citrus and grass. Flavor has mild sweetness, some graininess, bread, yeast, a faint sourish hint, citric and grassy touches and a bitterish finish. Quite light-bodied. Certainly has more character (and less sweetness) than most industrial ex-USSR pale lagers. Quite easy-drinking.

Golden color. Beautiful high head. Aroma of malt. Rather weak but not bad at all. Taste of malt with notes of yeast, though yeast are not mentioned on the label.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml bottle provided by Gaute. Clear straw coloured body. Two-finger sized head, short-lived. Fragile lacing. Poor on aroma, hints of sweet pale malts. Flavour is candy sweet on a backbone of grain. Mid-dry, sweet ending. Lightly oiled palate. Soft carbonated. Has got some body and is quite possible to drink, but overall it’s an anonymous beer (Tromsø, 11.10.2013).

I’ve been to Riga and I have no idea what they mean when they say on the label "Authentic Riga beer". Golden with a big artificial head. Sweet, grainy, Wonderbread aroma. Slightly spicy hop breaks up an otherwise doughy palate.
