Marduk (2637) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 1, 2012
0,5l bottle. Grainy, malty, yeast, mildly sweet aroma. Mild yeast, faint sugar, grainy, malty, very faint hops in flavor. Nice crisp mouthfeel. Tastes like old common USSR beer 25 years ago (in a positive way).

Uzavas Gaishais is a delicious pale ale with a mild aroma, foggy appearance and perfectly neutral palette that leaves you ready to drink again. ~1 GBP, 1/2 liter bottle, Rimi Latvia

suurjuust (1031) - ESTONIA - JUL 3, 2012
Pale straw, medium head that quickly disappears. Nose has some floral notes, some sweetness, but unfortunately the papery-rubbery malt dominates the whole thing. Taste is an improvement over the aroma, it has some fairly nice and crisp malt to it, with some honey sweetness. Weak bitterness in the finish. Somewhat oily mouthfeel, some prickling by the CO2. This could be a premium lager if it had just a touch more body.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2013 1.12.2013 - niestety musze obniżyć ocenę może to przypadek może natrafiłem jakąś gorszą partię ale jednak nie trzyma poziomu z poprzedniego roku - piwo na pewno męskie ale pozostawia posmak goryczy, którego nie lubię 17.6.2012 ocena 3,7 -bardzo smaczne piwko, rewelka, butelkowe z krotkim okresem ważności, świeże, fajna miękka woda, bogaty piwny smak, słodowe, chmielowe, nie pozostawia zlego posmaku, chyba najlepsze jasne jakie piłem na Łotwie, uzavas rządzi!!

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 17, 2011
On keg at Lido in Riga. Pours a light golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of caramel, barley, bready yeast and grassy hops. Similar flavours with a caramel linger. Mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. OK.

BeerSkull (1264) - SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2011
Sweet and slightly tart malt aroma. The taste is malty with a distinct hops character. The aftertaste has a nice dry hops bitterness reminiscent of a Pilsner. The tastiest Latvian beer I have tasted to date! Not Bad!

dnoaksson (693) - , SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2011
Lägger man ifrĺn sig sitt kritiska öga - men kom ihĺg: förvara det pĺ en säker plats, helst i en innerficka - kan man lĺta sig smaka av Uzavas. Det är först när man börjar syna ölet som man inser att den är en bluff - en simpel lageröl som uppträder som om den vore värd betydligt mer än en 9:a i totalen.

Kavu (2182) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2011
These east European lagers are made from the same mold. Clear golden, medium head, aroma and flavor are both very light and mostly malts.

Maris (980) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 22, 2010
On tap in a 500ml glass in Vecriga beer garden on 22/7/2010. Has quite a distinct aroma for a pale lager, with a floral, honey/pollen and bready aroma. Sweet honey is the most notable flavour. Has a quite firm and lasting hop finish. A lovely, high quality lager which is perfect to quaff on a warm summer’s afternoon in Riga.

ekstedt (5391) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2009
Bottle (50 cl), thanks gnoff. Clear golden, medium white head. Sugary and honeyish, gainy, some vegatables. Light to medium bodied, soft but lively carbonation. A bit sweet with low to medium bitterness.
