omhper (18954) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 Bottled. Lightly hazy golden, small head. Dough and grass. Mid sweet with medium body and well rounded mouthfeel. Some hay and grass. Mid bitter finish. Old rating.Bottled. Cloudy golden, small head. Overpowering offputting stale cellar aroma with powerful notes of diacetyl and butyric acid. Sweet and soapy with old Soviet style unclean flavour. The malt profile however is soft and would be pleasant if it wasn’t for the full array of brewing faults that completely dominates this beer. Very aggresive and oily. Too bad that the one Latvian brewer I’ve tried that seems to have any ambition also seem to have sever quality issues (1/4/2/2/4 - 1.3).

MiP (13046) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle, 4.6%. Clear golden colour, white head. The flavour starts off a little sour, almost as if infected. But then it just turns into a standard macro lager. Slightly rough bitterness, good mouthfeel.

TBone (11905) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2005
Draught "live beer"
Golden, a bit hazy, white small head, lace. Very light grassy aroma. Malty, carbonated mouthfeel, sweetish with not much of hops. Typical East European lager. This is drinkable one.

Oakes (11798) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2004
Slightly hazy golden colour. Odd toasty, malty, grainy aroma. Smooth shortcakey malt flavour. Soft herbal hoppiness carries things forward. Clean, gentle, subtle.

FatPhil (8595) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 29, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2010 Keg (Alus Arsenals, Riga) Hazy light orange, small light head. Hoppy and malty - light grains. Very sessionable and pretty tasty. Very good for a light lager - a style I usually sneer at. (5:3:5:3:11=2.7)
Rerate: Keg (Riga Beer Festival 2010) (5:3:6:4:12=3.0)
Really fresh. So much more grainy than I remember. Smooth palate, lots of light grains in the finish. Delicious fresh.
