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.

DanielBrown (4345) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2015
Bottle from Deya, Burton. Really bad. Popcorn, pure butter, greased honeycomb. Way too sweet. Soft gobfeel. All over the shop. Some cherry fizz bomb, fool.

Gangstergafje (594) - 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.

djoeye (3170) - Tromsř, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2015
Look; big off white head, lot of lacing, clear golden body. Aroma; sweet grains, toffeeish malts, attic hops, some floral perfume and sweetness. Taste; bread, round soft sweet malts, floral hops, whiskeyish grains, leading to a bready finish. Normal body and soft carbonation. Overall not bad.

Bottle. Pours golden with whiteish head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is maize, popcorn, grains, nastiness. Flavor is sweet, popcorn, malt. Overall: bad. Why the hell is this rated so highly?!
