my opportunity to sample this beer is a monument of good intentions over beer-nerd sophistication: this came to me as part of the "great latvian beer airlift of 2007" (my partner went on vacation there-- don’t ask me why. sniff).

i know as much about latvia as i do about curing constipation in geriatric gerbils-- or the dark side of saturn’s moons. not that any such knowledge is greatly requisite in simply rating a beer; i just don’t want to endorse a beer if they use slave labor or anything unsavory like that over there; i mean, for all i know, they get their brewing water from the same treatment plant that services the nuclear reactor.

barring those considerations, i found a beer that immediately wanted to learn my language and adapt to it’s host country. "whissssst" it sang out when i popped the top, and like any american thoroughbred, it galloped into the arena with it’s frothy white mane tossing, and with the shade of yellow only associated with the better-made tin grommets of the world.

fairly clean grains highlight the aroma, especially grains that came to us in plastic bins. it has a distinct "circus-peanut" kind-of orange-scented cotton candy aroma-- or imagine if jello made a lemon-hop flavored gelatin dessert. not at all unpleasant, and probably quite an allure to those factory workers who might in fact BE slaves. how should i know? anyway, seriously, i have no complaints: this is a decent enough straight-forward quencher, tending toward a medium body, grainy, dry, well-carbonated, and with enough fresh-tasting hops to rank it respectably among the ubiquitous euro-pilseners.

but... if i can only get her to go to belgium NEXT year!!

Alusmamuts (1496) - LATVIA - APR 23, 2016

larsga (7242) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 21, 2016
Small offwhite head. Clear deep yellow body with light carbonation. Fruity earthy papery aroma with herbal mealy notes. Dry peppery mealy taste with wooden notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry wooden papery earthy aftertaste with mealy spicy notes. Interesting. Delicate and a bit too papery. (0.5l bottle, from Rimi.)

phfyysik (630) - Tartu, ESTONIA - MAR 10, 2016
Pours golden clear with white medium top. Aroma is hay, dust, malts, mild hops, some sourness. Taste is surprisingly bitter, some grains, dust, malts, hops, grass. Long and mild bitter after taste. Very refreshing and good beer!

Brainiac (218) - Riga, LATVIA - AUG 14, 2015
0,5l bottle. Soft white bread aroma, not sweetish. Well balanced on the tongue, aftertaste gives up a little hops.

Rune (11036) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2014
500ml bottle kindly shared by djoeye. Stable, bubbly, white head to a bright golden coloured body. Satisfying lacing. Fresh bread on the nose. Flavours of bread, buttery caramel malts and dusty hops. Quite refreshing. Medium bodied. Pleasing (session at Finns in Tromsø 05.08.2014).

Flaske 500ml spandert av djoeye. Delt med ham og Rune på Nerstranda 5 Aug 14. Lys gyldenbrungul. Høyt kritthvitt luftig skum som varer. Litt lacing. God maltaroma med litt humle. Smaken er brød & karamell balansert med en anelse humle i avslutninga. Av de bedre fra den kanten.

djoeye (3439) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2014
Šis alus nāk ar lielu gandrīz balta galvas un dziļi salmu zelta ķermeni. Caramel, toffee, honey, plums, bread, faint air of hops to the nose. Caramel, sweet bread, toffee, butterscotch, grains, faint hops to the tongue. Balance and body alright. Finishes with bread and some hops. Better than pale lager, more as premium. [B@Rimi Bauskas Latvijas : RatingSession@Finns. 50cl. br. btl. 5.4%abv. °. BB20.08.14]

lobs_ols (452) - LATVIA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle. Good white head, pure gold colour. Slight hoppy malt on the nose. Bittersweet taste with sweet, but not obnoxious, finish. I somehow remembered this as being more bitter. Still decent, but not great.
