3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2013 Bottle. Slightly bitter. Tastes malty. Carbonation is a bit low. While the bottle and aroma won’t leave a huge impression, the taste (especially at a proper temperature) will knock your socks off. Definitely a high quality product and one of the better beers Latvia has to offer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear deep golden with medium size white head.
Aroma.. Most hoppy brew from Tērvete. Grass, bit malty. Bread, some citrus
From bit sweet to dominating bitterness, thou not too pushy and harsh.
Overall.. Not very exceptional, but nice quality drinking beer for "everyday situation"

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale golden, white soapy head. Nose is bready malts with some weak spicy-citric notes and vague cardboard. Taste is fairly malty and finishes with grassy, slightly citric hop bitterness. Texture is on the thin side, thin to medium body, discreet carbonation. Nothing overly special, but a pretty good quaffer.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2012 Pours light golden with little but sustainable head. Aroma is something between minimal bready and corny, could be more intense. I feel no hops not in aroma nor in taste after I try to get more aroma in to my nose by spinning beer in the glass, little bitterness in aftertaste, no dry finish. Carbonation level is average good, some sweetness in taste, no sourness - like it.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle bought at a Rimi supermarket in Riga but drunk back home in the UK, in its sell-by month. Latvia’s best lager and able to stand up for itself in fairly stiff competition I would judge. Probaly hop pellets and 90% malt though it might be better than that. All the usual tastes of a higher quality blong lager.

Bottle. Dark golden color. Sweet fruity aroma. Flavor is little bit sweet at the beginning, but immediately I can feel hops. Originalais is more hoppy than other Tervete brews. Good.
