3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewery shop, Riga. Hazy deep golden, small head. Bread nad butter, some grass. Mid sweet with medium body and well rounded mouthfeel. Honey, butter and spicy hops - all in good balance - lead to an increasingly bitter finish. Nice!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml @Valmiermuiza bar, Riga, with Stefan. Slightly hazy golden amber body, with tiny head. Fresh hoppy aroma, with hint of cheese, pine and citrus. Herbs are added in taste, some pine and grass, kind of astringent finish and rather carbonated. Lingering! Okay, but after the Ziemas it did not feel like an easy drink.

Small white head doesn’t last. Hazy amber body with carbonation. Earthy mealy nutty aroma with strawy fruity notes. Dryish dusty strawy taste with dried fruit and flour notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish earthy strawy aftertaste with resiny wooden notes. Interesting and unusual. Drinkable, but surprisingly bitter. (0.5l draft at Folkklubs Ala Pagrabs, Riga.)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2011 Keg (?, Riga) (5-:3:5:3:10=2.6)
Really not getting much aroma, just vague light grains, but served so cold. SImple in the mouth, crisp and refreshiing. Finish does have pleasant crisp and dry noble hops. However, not as good as either the uncertain heritage keg from Tallinn, or the bottled one from a year ago. A touch of sourness in the mashiness.
Rerate of: Keg (Tallinn Town Square, Ethnic Minorities Day) (5:3:6:4:13=3.1)
Little aroma, as it was a cold day, and served very cold. Rich gold, tight keggy head. Lovely full smooth malts. A touch husky. Gentle hops. Milky body. Excellent easily-drinkable lager. Uncertain if this really was the nefiltrets - it was definitely "live" and from keg, but it didn’t actually say nefiltrets.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On keg in Riga. Unfiltered version. One of my favourite Latvian lagers. Pours a golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of bready yeast and caramel. Similar flavours with mild bitterness and a grassy hop finish. A little oily mouth-feel with mild carbonation and CO2 prickle.
