This is a good drinking lager. I had it on draught in Riga. It reminded me a lot of the Sam Adams Lager. It had a similar floral hop bouquet and balanced flavor. Very good option if you’re drinking in Riga.

SarkyNorthener (2797) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2015
Bottle from deya, burton. Golden beer with medium head. Aroma is pale malts and some cereal grain. Taste is cereal grains, light herb, pale malts and a little sweet bread. Decent lager, the way they should be.

Alusmamuts (830) - LATVIA - NOV 9, 2014
Retrospective rating. Golden-amber ahzy with medium white cap. NIce balanced taste with mild bitterness, rich of nuances. This rating is for beer on tap, for unknown reasons the bottled beer is much worst.

NordicV (1293) - 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.

mzaar (1946) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2014
Flaska @ Don Basil, Ventspils. Klar guldfärgad med vitt skum. Dofter av säd, malt och majs. Smakar förvånansvärt bra för att vara en lager, där en viss honungssötma bryter in bakom säd och vitt bröd. Medelkolsyrig. Lättdrucken.

lobs_ols (344) - LATVIA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle. Very weak fizzy head. Gold with more bubbles than anticipated on the eye. Malty hop aroma, faint. Sweet malty taste, hoppy malt finish. All a bit watery. I swear this was better when I was younger.

BeerBaboon (1723) - FINLAND - JUL 14, 2014
Pours gold with white head. Aroma is sweet malt and old butter. Flavour is light bitter, light sweet and notes of metal.

Senka (857) - 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.

visionthing (3387) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2014
50cl bottle from Riga International Airport. Pours clear golden with a finger thick, but pretty fast dissipating white head. Moderate fruity and malty aroma with notes of honey. Moderate sweet with rather nice fruitiness and a light bitterness tingling in the finish. Rather nice for being a pale lager.

Discore (68) - - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle. Slightly hazy golden color. Aroma - balanced mix of hops, malt, nuts and bread. Taste is light sweet with a nice bitter finish. Light to medium body. Overall - much more than just another pale lager and one of the best beers from Latvia.

jann3 (168) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 19, 2013
A draught poured in a dimpled mug. Yellow and a bit hazy body with a large white head. Sweet and malty aroma with notes of honey. Malty flavour that lingers until finish. Soft carbonation. Very little hops. Maltiness definitely dominates. Decent but too sweet for me.
