Lido Medalus 2.6
From Lido, Riga. Pours red without head. Aroma is quite weak, some caramel, malts, honey. Taste is quite sweet but passes well with food. Easy to drink. Mouth feels some honey, malts and hops. Feels more like easy bockbier. Nothing special but passes well with food.

[2014-12-30, Riika] Punertavanruskea, tiivis vaahtofilmi. Tuoksussa toffeeta ja makeaa mallasta. Maussa makeaa maltaisuutta, joka loppuu karamellisuuteen ja kevyeen katkeroon. Suutuntumaltaan kermainen ja voimakkaan hiilihappoinen.

Enjoyed a pint of this beer in Riga, Latvia at a restaurant. The beer had a rich amber color with a large foamy white head that had great retention along with good cling and lacing. Its aroma had notes of grainy and earthy hops along with barley and some light malt. The taste was mostly bitter and grainy with some barley malt notes as well. It was a fairly filling and fuller beer with a slightly wet and watery body with average carbonation.

Een lekker en gebalanceerd bier. De honing is duidelijk aanwezig, maar niet zodanig dat het erg zoet wordt. Mooi contrast met de hop. Erg lekker.

Kullankeltainen, hieman samea. Tuoksussa ohraa. Maku alkaa miedosti katkerana ja maltaisena sekä hieman yrttisenä. Muuttuu loppua kohden katkerammaksi ja jättää suuhun hieman öljyisen suutuntuman sekä yrttisen katkeran ja miedosti suolaisen jälkimaun.

50cl on tap at Alus Seta, Riga. Almost clear amber with an off-white head. Mild malty and caramely aroma with some lightly herbal hints. Moderate to medium sweet with a light bitterness. Fairly balanced and goes down quite easy on a hot day like today.

Amber beer, with soft carbonation. Malty, a bit of fruity aroma, also earth and honey and a little bit of caramel. Creamy, refreshing. Disbalance between aroma and taste. Nice beer after work, but nothing special.

Pours hazy yellow with white medium-sized head. Sweetish nose with honey and malts. Taste is sweetish too with notes of honey. Some herbal bitterness in the finish. Quite basic brew, but goes well with Estonian food. (Draught in Lido, Tallinn, Estonia)

On tap @Lido krasta. Amber with small white head. Little aroma of some malts and little hops. Nothing intense, but descent beer to drink with food. If you are at Lido Krasta, try this one with food.

Lido Medalus 2.8
on tap from dimpled mug,
Flavor is heavily pale malt oriented, grainy, a bit pale bread with light touch of honey to me. Aroma - pale malt sweet, far away honey, a bit sharp, herbal hops. Taste is light sweet with light bitter, sweetness seems a bit sugary-sour ending. Light to medium body, sour-sweet aftertaste. Brew’s name "honey beer" minimal defines what it really is. Easy drinkable but nothing to remember.

Tap at Lido Vērmanītis. Amber. Medium beige head. Taste is light sweet/light bitter. Aroma - hops and caramel. Unfourtunately had a bad batch this time (no carbonation at all and seemed like it is a bit stale), but usually it has low to medium carbonation. Drinkable beer.

on tap @Riga Airport. Pours clear pale amber with white frothy medium top. Aroma is week but still - mild malt sweet plus far away herbal and a bit aroma hops, a minimal dry, mild bitter finish. Pleasant refreshing sample, like that it’s more hops oriented. Medium body, mild thick-much texture. Nice one but lacks intensity aand aroma.

Lido Medalus 2.9
Small offwhite creamy lasting head. Hazy yellow body with carbonation. Mealy fruity aroma with honey notes, fairly weak. Dryish dusty honey taste with papery notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish mealy honey aftertaste with earthy dusty notes. It’s not bad, but low on flavour. Fills out a bit as I drink, so served too cold. (0.3l draft at Alus Setas, Riga.)

Medium creamy dense offwhite head. Slightly hazy deep amber body with strong carbonation. Mealy strawy aroma with herbal dusty notes. Dry-sweetish dusty strawy grainy taste with spicy earthy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish-dusty strawy aftertaste with earthy grainy notes. Nice, vivid, but not very exciting. (0.3l draft at Alus Setas, Riga.)

Lido Specialais 2.8
Pretty decent, oily, root-beer-y Vienna, true enough to style (if heavily featuring that yeasty taste that seems to be the trademark of everything in Latvia). Hops low enough to form, but too light and not enough caramel/treacle notes for style points

Draught (Staburags, Riga). Vague fragrance of malt with butterscotch aroma. A bit watery malt flavor with a slight tone of butterscotch and a dry hop bitterness in the aftertaste. A little better than "Lido Specialais"!

0.5L pour at LIDO. Amber golden pour with a little bit of white head. The aroma is a little bit sweet and slightly fruity. There is a touch of DMS along with some light malt sweetness. A light floral character but muted. It’s okay though. It’s no cask bitter, that’s for sure.

Re-rate, draught at Lido, Riga. Hazy amber, small head. Sweet and doughy. Medium bodied with soft mouthfeel. Bread and some syrup. Light malt bitterness. Draught at Lido, Tallinn, Estonia. Cloudy deep golden, creamy head. Mild citric nose. Sweetish with light-medium body and fairly clean mouthfeel. Some caramel. A little sourish and lacking in depth. Resiny bitterness. Off shape, if it hadn’t been poured at one of Lido’s own establishments I wouldn’t have rated it ,now it’s been in their control all the way to my glass. (4/5/4/2/8=2.3)
