2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours nice deep golden, sparkling with medium frothy white top. In aroma it is backbone sweetish malt, a bit rice, a bit metallic. Taste is more dominated by bitter with sweet malt profile. Palate - medium body, average carbonation, mild dry finish. Not bad brew, but from this brewer I prefer more hopped, more bitter beers with less sweetish in flavor. This seems not balanced enough.

Small white head. Clear yellow body. Light strawy oily aroma with herbal notes. Dry-sweet papery strawy taste with dusty herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry grainy strawy aftertaste with sugary spicy herbal notes. Minty and earthy, too. Nice and drinkable. Bitter mealy finish lingers. (0.3l draft at Gauja, Riga.)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pale golden, medium head. Malty aroma with a slight cabbage/metallic influence. Sweet malty taste. Not too watery palate, perhaps even quite full, but then some more metallic notes appear in the finish. This must be partly the alcohol. Hard to ignore that.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from S.Brevinga Alus un viskija salons, Riga. Pours clear golden with a huge creamy white head. Aroma is grainy, some grassy weak hops. Taste is sweet grainy, with not enough bitterness to make this a good pilsener in my opinion. Very light spicy hops towards the end.
