2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

These east European lagers are made from the same mold. Clear golden, medium head, aroma and flavor are both very light and mostly malts.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, sourced in Geneva. Mid coloured lager with strong initial carbonation. Quite distinguished as a pale lager, decent enough malty base and then has a nice bitter hop finish. A tasty lager, also felt quite fresh. The bitterness made it very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
