Medium white head, pure gold. Faint malty hop aroma. Malty grain with bittersweet palate and a watery bitter finish. Ok.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
No wonder that Latvians are not good in beer. As well as ?? know Tervetes i? popular in Latvian for it’s taste. At least I failed to find the taste, I meandbthat beer is less than average. Awful label makes it even worse

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle. Mostly clear, but few divers floating in. Grainy, bready, sweet, honey in aroma. Grainy, malty, yeasty, but only slightly sweet in flavor. Where did the honey disappear?

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle (Stockmann or Rimi, Riga)
Pale, flecky floating specks, brief white head. Really raw bready grainy aroma. A bit watery in the palate, crisp carbonation. Again bready and raw in the taste, maybe a touch yeasty. Drying, not so refreshing, a little acidic in the finish. I’d guess that on tap it’s better, that’s the experience I’ve had with other beers from them, but in the bottle it’s dead, and a bit chemical. A tough battle between this and left hand polestar pilsner this evening, I think I would just prefer this one. It’s simpler and more raw, but at least can fall back on the breadiness that the polestar lacked. Of course, that was 8 beers ago...

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bit hazy pale golden with medium sized white head, that stays quite OK. Lacing.
Aroma and palate are quite poor. Grassy, typical light barley, light hops.
Waterly. If you want to enjoy, theres nothing much to enjoy. There are 3 uses for this beer. 1. enjoy appearance 2. refreshing 3. if you want to drink a lot
