Light, yeasty, palate-cleansing beer with good balance of "live" hops, clean malt, etc. Not too-too much going on but a great session lager. Not officially available on the menu, have to ask!

I’ve had this a million times, both on tap and in bottles, and I’ve loved it nearly all those times. The bottle I’m having now (BB due in a few months; € 2.60 from a local supermarket) is honestly not very good... It forms a massive off-white head when poured in a nonik glass, leaves very good lacing and retains well. Colour is light honey, body clear. Nose earthy and dank, taste not better - semisweet, faintly bitter, but mostly just malty. Normally I find it having a very pleasant honey note to it, which complements the malty sweetness and faint appearance of hops, but not much this time. Good crispness and body. It’s my go-to lager when not in the mood for anything fancy, when I just want a goddamn beer, or nothing better available. Giving it a solid 3.2 whereas the bottle I’m having now maybe only deserves around 2.

Gyllengul öl med vitt skum. Doft av hö, gräs lätt maltighet och fruktighet. Nĺgot för söt i smaken med en lättare beska.

Tap@ Days Hotel Riga. Wat donkergeel van kleur, de kraag was zo weg. Ruikt bittermoutig en smaakt ook zo met vooral een aangenaam moutkarakter. Goed te drinken

Gold on the eye, white head that does not linger. Initial hoppy aroma that gives way to malt.Balanced clear taste with malty notes - a bit too sweet maybe. Very sweet finish. This was better 6 months ago, I swear.

Clear golden appearance, medium head. Malty, lightly hoppy with herbal notes. Medium low complexity, not too sweet with well rounded bitterness. Good and refreshing premium lager.

Valmiermuiža; village with 1000 inhabitants, 110kms northeast of Riga, with brewery, tourist information and old sites at same spot, googleman tells. Valmiermuižas Gaišais Filtrets (Nepasterizete Alus); deep golden clear bubby body, pearl white dense head, dots inside the mug and a little curtain. Mild scents of sweet malts, hints of caramel, toffee fudge, sour toe, loaf of bread, meadow. Taste; wort, bread, caramel, toffee, butter, grains, herbs, grass, and notes of butterscotch passing by. Slicky on palate, normal body. Bread-buttery finish with some hops playing along. Very nice pal to cheese, salty sausages and evening sun. [50cl brown bottle abv5.2% BB24sp14, b@Bauska Latvija]
