omhper (25538) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2012 Re-rate, draught at Lido, Riga. Hazy amber, small head. Sweet and doughy. Medium bodied with soft mouthfeel. Bread and some syrup. Light malt bitterness. Draught at Lido, Tallinn, Estonia. Cloudy deep golden, creamy head. Mild citric nose. Sweetish with light-medium body and fairly clean mouthfeel. Some caramel. A little sourish and lacking in depth. Resiny bitterness. Off shape, if it hadn’t been poured at one of Lido’s own establishments I wouldn’t have rated it ,now it’s been in their control all the way to my glass. (4/5/4/2/8=2.3)

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2011 Draught (Alus Seta, Riga) (5:3:5:3:11=2.7)
Arom is a heavy muesli grain aroma, raw. A little dusty too. Taste is creamy but also slightly drying hoppiness. Pleasant but not brilliant. Hints of mud or mushrooms later.

MiP (15960) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2008
Draught, 4.5% at LIDO. Cloudy amber colour. Very small head. The flavour is OK malty, with a little roasted malt. Perhaps also the tiniest note of smoke. Pleasantly mild carbonation. Simple, but nice.

First rating
RBESG 2017, sampled on July 20, 2017.
LIDO Atputas Centrs, Riga. Brunch before the official gathering started.
From tap. First took this down as the Gaisais, then we realized it was actually the Specialais, by the time we had already got and rated that, so two ratings to compare within an hour of the same beer, thinking they were different.
Hazy golden color, white head. Malty, sweet, herbal scent. Malty, herbal, short taste. Malty aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness.

JoeMcPhee (9515) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2011
0.5L pour at LIDO. Amber golden pour with a little bit of white head. The aroma is a little bit sweet and slightly fruity. There is a touch of DMS along with some light malt sweetness. A light floral character but muted. It’s okay though. It’s no cask bitter, that’s for sure.

Marduk (8206) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 28, 2013
Tap @ LIDO Dzirnavu Street 74, Riga. Hazy, brown color. Firm medium size head, stays. Yeast, malty, bit sugary and caramels in aroma. Heavy malts, bready, yeast, grainy and detectable hops in flavor. Full bodied, but slightly off and slick. Drinkable brew.
