2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty good for a PL, the yeasty, almost bready flavor of "living beer" is characteristic, and generally welcome. A bit hoppy at the end though

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Flaska @ Don Basil, Ventspils. Klar guldfärgad med vitt skum. Dofter av säd, malt och majs. Smakar förvĺnansvärt bra för att vara en lager, där en viss honungssötma bryter in bakom säd och vitt bröd. Medelkolsyrig. Lättdrucken.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Very weak fizzy head. Gold with more bubbles than anticipated on the eye. Malty hop aroma, faint. Sweet malty taste, hoppy malt finish. All a bit watery. I swear this was better when I was younger.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A draught poured in a dimpled mug. Yellow and a bit hazy body with a large white head. Sweet and malty aroma with notes of honey. Malty flavour that lingers until finish. Soft carbonation. Very little hops. Maltiness definitely dominates. Decent but too sweet for me.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Salve Restorans (Riga). Blond body with an average carbonation and a good white foamyécreamy head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with herbal and bready hints. Taste is rather thin but not bad. It carries herbal notes and ends with a short bitter finish. Decent Lager.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.)
