Pours golden with light white head. Aroma is fruits, malty sweetness, some perfume, freshness. Taste is fruity, sourish, citrus, flour, some hay. Very different and nice lager. Good beer!

Cunningham (7716) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2016
Clear golden color with a white head. Mild intensity in the aroma. Medium body and an average carbonation. Decent balance between sweetness and bitterness. Plain decent pilsner flavor. Herbal hoppy and pale malt.

visionthing (5240) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 20, 2016
50cl bottle from Rimi Hypermarket in Jelgava. Pours clear deep golden with a fairly small, white head. Grainy and almost honey-like aroma with some fruity notes, hints of cooked vegetables and grass. Fairly sweet, but some noticeable bitterness to balance it out. Fair enough.

butelka 0,5. wygląda średnio ale smakuje nieźle - ma smak palonego słodu a na końcu zostawia słodkawy posmak trochę ciężki i lepki ale nie najgorszy. Można spróbowac innych z tego browaru

Vells (1808) - Rīga, LATVIA - OCT 11, 2015
Weird for pale lager. Some grainy maltiness, bit spicy, caramel, cardboard, butter. .I hope its gone off, not intentionally brewed like this. Light sweetness with light bitterness. No thx.. only if I am dead thirsty

zenkis (834) - Ogre, LATVIA - AUG 4, 2014
Pours pale amber, clear with white, thick, frothy finger wide top, aroma and flavor - dominant licorice with only minimal space left for light sweet maltiness and sharp, a bit spicy, herbal europen noble hops. Not enjoyable but in hot summer day I could have a glass. Medium body, minimal dry finish, some

On tap at Brewery Õlleklubi in Tallinn, Estonia where it was listed as "Design Pilsner" on the English menu and "Hansa Zeldzaam Desing Pilsner" on the Estonian menu. Brewery Õlleklubi tries to look like a brewery, but its house beers are mostly rebranded Latvian beers. Clear, sparkling, bright amber with an off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of pilsener malt, floral hops, caramel and bread. Taste of caramel, pilsener malt, floral hops, black pepper and toffee. Medium body and medium carbonation with a clean and nearly crisp mouthfeel. A sweet, but otherwise respectable pilsener. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden yellow clear beer with practically no head at all. Rotating the glass makes some white head which disappears instantly. Aroma has lots of yeast, diacetyl, berries and glue. Weird. Rotating the glass brings out some grassy hops and malts like a pilsner should, but it goes away in a second. Flavor is really mild but little yeasty and malty sweet. Short finish with practically no hops at all. Mouthfeel is floury and thin with high carbonation. While drinking this I was told that it’s a local microbrew so I thought it was just a bad batch. Heard later that it was actually contract brewed from a bigger company but I don’t understand how they can produce this kind of stuff.
