Pale gold & clear. Thick white head that stuck around for a while. Cereal dominates the nose. Soft, creamy mouthfeel, with a smooth finish. The aroma is mostly cereal, and the hops give it a light bitterness. That bitterness gets sharper along the way, but overall an easy-going lager. My first foray into Latvian beer has been an enjoyable one. SarkyNorthener (4784) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2013
Bottle from Eastern European shop. Yellow beer with medium foamy head and a little lacing. Looks better than most pale lagers. Aroma is metalic and grassy. The taste is a little sweetcorn and mild herbs. Slight sweetness in the aftertaste too, refreshing. Not overly carbonated and decent body for a pale lager. Not bad, better than commercial UK lagers by far. MrBlueSky93 (524) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Bottle from Beers of Europe.
Pours Golden, pale in colour, very clear, lots of bubbles and a nice single finger head. Aroma of Honey, Grass, Grain. Initial taste of Honey, (standard for Eastern European/Russian Lagers) then some wheat, grain, grass and some herbs, maybe lemongrass, maybe fennel...a nice crisp yet slightly bitter finish. Very nice. ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 20, 2015
Can. Pours a light golden body with a small white head. Nose is mild banana, grains, straw and hints of dusty hops and maize. Taste is grains, red berries, straw, pale malts and hints of grass and honey. Light to medium body, medium to high carbonation. Although this might actually display some "brewing flaws" regarding style (a bit too estery for a pale lager, for example) I’d say it lifts the beer considerably, from a regular boring pale lager to a rather tasty pale lager. Still, it’s a pale lager. They only go so far. charlotte (5416) - rødovre, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2015

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Botle 50 cl) Very pale, slightly hazy beer. Looks almost like a Belgian witbier. Creamy, stable head leaving laces on my glass. If this really is a lager, it’s really rather unusual because of it’s odd wheaty touch. Slightly sourish and quite fresh. According to the Aldaris website this is a lager made pale with some barley-starch. But all in all surprisingly nice. 160104 BeerandBlues2 (13719) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear light yellow with an average, frothy, white head, mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (husky grain, hay, straw), average hops (grass), average yeast (earth, leaves) with notes of apple, pear, and vegetable. Light bodied, thin texture, average carbonation, and a chalky finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness. rauchbier (3928) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2012
Bottle (5%), from an ethnic food store in Scunthorpe. Gold, thin but lasting white head and low condition. Low sweet grainy malt and herbal hoppiness in the nose, quite fruity in the mouth with some malty sweetness and a pleasant tingle of hop bitterness which lingers into the finish, some estery notes develop with time. badhack (565) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Mild hop aroma. Light on the tongue but slightly sticky. Hazy honey color. Lots of head that doesn’t last. Light flavor, somewhat sweet hoppy finish. tampierre (1419) - Pilsen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 9, 2013
