2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle bought in Riga. Golden colour, clear, with small head that does not last long. Aroma is quite unusual: sweet, with butterscotch, intensive honey and floral notes. Medium sweetness. Soft carbonation, medium body. Definitely does not taste like a pale lager. Overall quite pleasant.

A little bitter. But on the whole it does what it should do and is a fine thirst quencher.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The head is ok, the body light and clear. It smells malty, hoppy, a bit metal. The taste is malty, bitter, flowery, fruity, aromatic. A bit boring.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Super Zabka, Handsworth. This is surely a Helles; for it has all of the prevalent bready sweetness. Nice unfiltered flavour, doesn’t suffer from warmth. Quite drinkable.

Bottle. Deep gold/light amber color, hazy. Sweet corn aroma, slightly overwhelming. Taste is also sweet, though a bit dry. Oily texture. Low carbonation. Enjoyable at low temperatures and with some salty snacks.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I drove into Bauska a friday afternoon, and went into Rimi Hypermarket, where I found this beer (among several others). Bauska is a nice little city in southern Latvia, only 20 kms from Lithuania. The stay at the ABC Hotel was comfortable.
Bauskas Alus Gaisais 4,8% pours an offwhite head on the golden yellow body.
Possible to make it tall for some seconds, but it diminishes without much patterns.
Scents of sweet malts, faint hops, hints of honey.
Taste; grains, hops, sweet malts, and some seconds I wonder if it is a bit perfumed.
Mouthfeel, there is some bitterness in a gentle way into this beer.
End; grains, hops, these distinct bitterness signals, and maybe something that makes me think of almonds dipped into honey and then roasted.
Overall this beer is worth being made. The city Bauska should be proud of its brewery and the newly renovated castle, Bauskas Pils.
