UPDATED: JUL 29, 2005 Golden colored with sweet malty aroma. Very light and cloudy live beer. !! The best choice if you are in Riga. :)

I really have no idea who made the ratebeer.com top beers list, but I’m damn sure they’ve never tasted Uzavas beer. If they did, Uzavas would be #1 undoubtly.

DREVIL1977 (2) - LATVIA - MAY 23, 2006 does not count
One of the best beers in Latvia, a little bit bitterness, that only makes a beer good enough.

zziemelis (12) - Rīga, LATVIA - FEB 6, 2006
Golden, balanced and pleasant. With enjoyable taste of bread and favourable aftertaste. Worth trying when You’re in Latvia. If You can call this one ’typical’, please say ’typical BOUTIQUE beer’ - it’s produced in very small amounts and is definitely one of Latvia’s best draft beers.

Uzavas Gaishais is a delicious pale ale with a mild aroma, foggy appearance and perfectly neutral palette that leaves you ready to drink again. ~1 GBP, 1/2 liter bottle, Rimi Latvia

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.

asedzie (598) - 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.

fuchebu (146) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2005
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.

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2008
Draught at Alus Arsenalis, Riga. Honey, malt, cereals, nuts. I would ordinarily say this was too sweet for me, but this one was seducive. The Latvian brewers have a splendid way of brewing with honey that other countries could learn a lot from!
