Quite malty, bit caramel, bready, weird fruity. Moderate sweet with some moderate bitter finish. Definitely not bad, but unbalanced for me and brings headaches X) Melnis (526) - LATVIA - NOV 5, 2013

On tap poured in PET bottle, Miestiņš beer store, Riga, Anniņmuižas iela 2. 5.9% alco
Pours brownish with good beige thick top, above average lasing, thick as well, diminishing speed - acceptable. Aroma - dominant sweet malty, a bit rye bread like with good tones of roasted, toasted malt. Taste is caramel-malt sweet with average bitter from darker malt and hopping, but hops are lesser partner in this flavor. Palate - medium+ body, quite thick texture, flat carbonation, finish is sweet plus light bitter. Easy drinkable overall, but not much cause becomes a bit annoying, a bit boring in taste.
