larsga (6240) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 28, 2013
Small white head. Hazy yellow body with light carbonation. Earthy nutty mealy aroma with fruity musty notes. Dry nutty earthy fruity taste with mealy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish-bitter mealy grainy earthy aftertaste with herbal notes. Not bad, but a bit low on flavour. (0.5l draft at Prie Kristapas, Riga.)

KnutAlbert (6129) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2008
Draught at Alus Arsenalis, Riga. Honey, malt, cereals, nuts. I would ordinarily say this was too sweet for me, but this one was seducive. The Latvian brewers have a splendid way of brewing with honey that other countries could learn a lot from!

SaintMatty (5380) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2008
Draught (Red Fred, Riga) - Amber in colour wih a slight haze and a small head. Grassy and slightly citrussy aroma with some hops and grapefruit. Clean tasting and refreshing. A good malt and hop balance and a fair amount of body for the style. The after taste has a hint of peach and passion fruit. Not bad at all.

Miksu (4948) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2008
0.5 l bottle. Golden color, OK head. Sweetish, honeyish and toffeish aroma. The taste has notes of malt, honey, herbal-fruity hops and medium bitterness. Soft palate. Clearly above average baltic lager with fair amount of hops.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - AUG 20, 2008
Very cool too. NOt so tasty as the other, maybe I should have tried in different order. But the qualiy amazes me. I hear good things about them from other people.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2004
Golden colored with little head. Rather sweet and malty aroma with some yeast too. Again this traditional baltic skunky lager flavor, not my favorite. No carbonation, very dry ending with bitter hops. Somehow skunky aftertaste, although dry ending is nice.

Eructoblaster (3056) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2013
On tap at Salve Restorans (Riga). Blond body with an average carbonation and a good white foamyécreamy head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with herbal and bready hints. Taste is rather thin but not bad. It carries herbal notes and ends with a short bitter finish. Decent Lager.
