Oakes (12447) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2004
Slightly hazy golden colour. Odd toasty, malty, grainy aroma. Smooth shortcakey malt flavour. Soft herbal hoppiness carries things forward. Clean, gentle, subtle.

Maris (989) - 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.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - AUG 20, 2008
Very cool too. NOt so tasty as the other, maybe I should have tried in different order. But the qualiy amazes me. I hear good things about them from other people.

Senka (472) - 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 (395) - 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.

Marduk (2717) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 1, 2012
0,5l bottle. Grainy, malty, yeast, mildly sweet aroma. Mild yeast, faint sugar, grainy, malty, very faint hops in flavor. Nice crisp mouthfeel. Tastes like old common USSR beer 25 years ago (in a positive way).

SaintMatty (5242) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2008
Draught (Red Fred, Riga) - Amber in colour wih a slight haze and a small head. Grassy and slightly citrussy aroma with some hops and grapefruit. Clean tasting and refreshing. A good malt and hop balance and a fair amount of body for the style. The after taste has a hint of peach and passion fruit. Not bad at all.

Miksu (4948) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2008
0.5 l bottle. Golden color, OK head. Sweetish, honeyish and toffeish aroma. The taste has notes of malt, honey, herbal-fruity hops and medium bitterness. Soft palate. Clearly above average baltic lager with fair amount of hops.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2013 1.12.2013 - niestety musze obniżyć ocenę może to przypadek może natrafiłem jakąś gorszą partię ale jednak nie trzyma poziomu z poprzedniego roku - piwo na pewno męskie ale pozostawia posmak goryczy, którego nie lubię 17.6.2012 ocena 3,7 -bardzo smaczne piwko, rewelka, butelkowe z krotkim okresem ważności, świeże, fajna miękka woda, bogaty piwny smak, słodowe, chmielowe, nie pozostawia zlego posmaku, chyba najlepsze jasne jakie piłem na Łotwie, uzavas rządzi!!
