omhper (23426) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 Bottled. Lightly hazy golden, small head. Dough and grass. Mid sweet with medium body and well rounded mouthfeel. Some hay and grass. Mid bitter finish. Old rating.Bottled. Cloudy golden, small head. Overpowering offputting stale cellar aroma with powerful notes of diacetyl and butyric acid. Sweet and soapy with old Soviet style unclean flavour. The malt profile however is soft and would be pleasant if it wasn’t for the full array of brewing faults that completely dominates this beer. Very aggresive and oily. Too bad that the one Latvian brewer I’ve tried that seems to have any ambition also seem to have sever quality issues (1/4/2/2/4 - 1.3).

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 29, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2010 Keg (Alus Arsenals, Riga) Hazy light orange, small light head. Hoppy and malty - light grains. Very sessionable and pretty tasty. Very good for a light lager - a style I usually sneer at. (5:3:5:3:11=2.7)
Rerate: Keg (Riga Beer Festival 2010) (5:3:6:4:12=3.0)
Really fresh. So much more grainy than I remember. Smooth palate, lots of light grains in the finish. Delicious fresh.

SaintMatty (6805) - 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 (5047) - 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.

halapablo (126) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUN 17, 2012
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!!

Gangstergafje (684) - 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.
