It’s nice, but not enough to drink when something really more preferable is available. I don’t like the aftertaste. faroeviking (10842) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 2, 2008
Draught. Pours a golden amber colour. The aroma is sweet and malty. The flavour is bitter and dry with sweet maltiness. MiP (15650) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle, 4.8%. Mild grassy hop aroma. Clear dark golden colour. Small white head. The flavour is very slightly hoppy, then turns a bit more malty. Slightly sugary, but OK.

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. Finn (7516) - Tromsř, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2014

Bottle at a tasting in Uppsala, July 2012. Thanks SaintMatty.
Almost clear golden with a medium white head. This was not that sweet. Bread, malt, some notes of metal and very light notes of hops. Drinkable.

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