Enjoyed a pint of this beer in Riga, Latvia at a restaurant. The beer had a rich amber color with a large foamy white head that had great retention along with good cling and lacing. Its aroma had notes of grainy and earthy hops along with barley and some light malt. The taste was mostly bitter and grainy with some barley malt notes as well. It was a fairly filling and fuller beer with a slightly wet and watery body with average carbonation. mandaritto (248) - LATVIA - MAY 12, 2014
Amber beer, with soft carbonation. Malty, a bit of fruity aroma, also earth and honey and a little bit of caramel. Creamy, refreshing. Disbalance between aroma and taste. Nice beer after work, but nothing special.

Tap @Lido. Slightly hazy light brown color. Medium size, white head, stays. Classic Latvian if I may say so. Sweet, malty, touch of honey and mild feeling of earthiness in taste and aroma. BeerSkull (1372) - SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2011
Draught (Staburags, Riga). Vague fragrance of malt with butterscotch aroma. A bit watery malt flavor with a slight tone of butterscotch and a dry hop bitterness in the aftertaste. A little better than "Lido Specialais"!
