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!

Maris (1307) - 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.

Senka (1037) - 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.

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

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2015 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. [re-rate] Bottle - expiration Sept. 19th marked on bottle, sampled Sept. 4th - brought by Latvian relatives visiting in July 2015. Pours clear golden with moderate white creamy head - leaving some lacing. - nose is distincy and unique- pleasant and pungent unbaked bread yeast dominates along with mild but slightly spicy german-like hops (not exactly german noble, but similar to tettnanger). Flavor is very good - earthy, and truly artisan tasting - somewhat ale-like esters give the beer body and a bit of roundness in the middle, beer begins crisp with leafy, herbal - whole leaf? - hops, has just a touch of malt sweetness and creamy texture in the middle and finishes with a wash of noble-like hoppiness - green, mildly bitter, palate clearing and a touch resinous - that lasts for minutes into the finish. - 4.0

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.

agent_persik (641) - 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.

Gangstergafje (489) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2015
The beer has quite a lot of foam for a pilsener. The foam is rough and white. Nice. The color of the beer is golden yellow. The beer is crystal clear. The smell has also some of this strawberry. There is also a nice hoppy aroma. Quite nice. The strawberry is also in the taste. It is quite a nice beer. It is pilsener, with an extra dimension. All the love to Latvia.
