JorgeLee (1194) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2013
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.

NordicV (1162) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2014
Flaska @ Don Basil i Ventspils. Gul med vitt skum. Doften är ganska söt med malt och honung. Samma i smaken med en lättare gräsig beska som avslutning. Snäppet bättre än många industrilager men något för söt.

suurjuust (1065) - 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.

Maris (990) - 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.

Lägger man ifrån sig sitt kritiska öga - men kom ihåg: förvara det på en säker plats, helst i en innerficka - kan man låta 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.

Vells (690) - LATVIA - DEC 16, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2012 Bit hazy golden with medium white head. Quite OK duration. Aroma.. hoppy and malty thou not very intense. Bit grassy, some honey. Sweet with mild touch of sourness. Dry, medium bitter finish. Nice quality Latvian brew. Nothing extraordinary, thou decen, balanced drinking beer

asedzie (604) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 11, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2007 On tap in Riga. Pours light copper with thick, slightly off-white head. Some lacing down the side of the glass. Fresh, spicey hop aroma. Doughy, musky malt. Distinctly smells of honey. Aroma is key here, taste seems secondary. Just wanted to stick my nose right in the glass. Flavor is bright, grassy hop bitterness. Aftertaste is prominent oily bitterness. Mouthfeel is fluffy and a little oily.

ectuohy27 (600) - ESTONIA - MAR 22, 2013
Pretty good for a PL, the yeasty, almost bready flavor of "living beer" is characteristic, and generally welcome. A bit hoppy at the end though

Senka (475) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 15, 2014
From the archives: I was searching for this beer for some times. I was driving through Riga, but it was never available in supermarkets. Creamy, with specific Latvian yeast aroma. Slightly sour.

agent_persik (400) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 19, 2013
Clean golden color, small white head. Aroma of malt, honey and grain, a bit buttery. Taste is dry sweet with lightly bitter hoppy finish. Watery body and medium carbonation. Nice and refreshing pale lager.
