1L PET from keg in Laagri Maksimarket near Tallinn. Hazy golden-amber color with medium head. Sweet malty aroma. Flavor was sweet malty, honey-like, some hops in finish. Interesting.

Brewery is quite new,but beer is good. It has specific taste, with hops and malts. Quite refreshing and overall good Latvian lager.

Hermod (5986) - Vantaa, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2015
Draught@ Brewery Řlleklubi as "Hansa Eerste Velvet". Had this on 29.8.2015. Poured amber in color with a quickly disappearing white head. Aroma was malts, some vegetable like notes and cereals. Flavor had the same things going on, vegetables, grains and sweetness. Low bitterness. Very generic.

djoeye (3170) - Tromsř, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2015
Look; huge off white head and clear golden body. Aroma; pale sweet malts, caramel, grains, bread. Taste; mild caramel malts, sweet bread, soft faint hops, buns - leading to a sweet finish. A bit thin texture, modest carbonation. No off-tastes, easy pale lager. [50cl brown bottle 4.6%abv BB01-09-2015 T@Ferie2015]

Dark gold on the eye. Weak white head, almost no aroma. Malty with a hint of bitterness - overall sweet. Hoppy finish. Ok lager, good for the summer.

mandaritto (179) - LATVIA - JUN 28, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2014 Golden with white head. Malty, watery beer with too much carbonation which isn’t good for light pale lager type beer. Not bad, but nothing special.

Discore (68) - - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle, clear, deep golden, minimal head. Lightly bittersweet. Grain/barley aroma Medium carbination, thin, slightly oily texture. Overall rather drinkable lager, refreshing at a proper temperature.

On tap (nitro?) at Brewery Õlleklubi in Tallinn, Estonia where it was listed as "Old Town Velvet" on the English menu and Hansa Eerste Velvet" on the Estonian menu. I believe that the "Velvet" was added to indicate that the beer was on nitro. Brewery Õlleklubi tries to look like a brewery, but its house beers are mostly rebranded Latvian beers. Clear, straw with a near off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of grain and light floral hops. Taste of caramel, light floral hops and grain. Medium body and medium/low carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
