SaintMatty (5096) - 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 (4938) - 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!!

JorgeLee (1152) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle, sourced in Geneva. Mid coloured lager with strong initial carbonation. Quite distinguished as a pale lager, decent enough malty base and then has a nice bitter hop finish. A tasty lager, also felt quite fresh. The bitterness made it very drinkable.

larsga (6140) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 28, 2013
Small white head. Hazy yellow body with light carbonation. Earthy nutty mealy aroma with fruity musty notes. Dry nutty earthy fruity taste with mealy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish-bitter mealy grainy earthy aftertaste with herbal notes. Not bad, but a bit low on flavour. (0.5l draft at Prie Kristapas, Riga.)

visionthing (2604) - 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.

BeerSkull (1234) - SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2011
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!
