I give it maximum, because this is really my all-time favourite. It has its very special taste, not easily understandable, but especially distinct. I may even doubt, whether it may be classified as a Lager - it may go as a Bitter as well (although it is sweetish by taste). charmarita (66) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2016
Wonderful Latvian beer. Pours from bottle golden yellow with tall creamy foam head. Aroma butter caramel popcorn. Palate silky soft matched by soft carbonation. Taste mildly sweet with tad bitterness starting in middle until end but aftertaste returning to a perfect balance between bitter and sweet. Perfect example of the lager style. Thanks Sari for sharing. Cokemonkey11 (833) - - APR 10, 2015
0.5L brown bottle, rimi, spice, Riga. Unpastuerized. Pours light amber with a thick white head, subsiding slowly. Scent is light malt. Taste is dense lager with citrus middles and grassy notes. As it warms up, also nutty and wood/mushroom-like notes. Finish is slightly bitter, transitioning to slightly sticky as it warms up. Great. estpiwo (1319) - ESTONIA - AUG 29, 2007
Bottled beer. Real good! My favorite Latvian beer. Beginning is sweet and malty and end is bitter and hoppy. thearmi (31) - Riga, LATVIA - JUL 3, 2012
A floral aroma with quite a strong feel of sweet malt. Very light, pale in color and quite clear with a minimal head. Rather sweet and a little bit bitter. Quite lively with a pleasant finish.

Tap at Pale golden pour, the aroma is moderately sweet. A simple sort of pale malt aroma with a little bit of light zesty character and some light floral character. A pretty nice, fresh tasty lager. A little bit of lingering zestiness on the finish.

0,5l butelka kupione na Statoilu na Łotwie. Smaczne piwo z charakterem -trochę goryczy dośdużo słodu, ale ciekawe jak będzie z utrzymaniem jakości smaku bo jak się przekonałem z tym na Łotwie jest problem Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - FEB 3, 2012

Draught at Alaus Stacija, Riga. (as Piebalgas Nefiltrets, 5.7%) Hazy golden, creamy head. Aroma of sweet malt with slight notes of butter and jelly. Sweet and solid bodied with firm, well rounded mouthfeel. Sugar and salt before a spicy bitterish finish. rlgk (18847) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2010
Bottle. Pale golden color, quite nice white head. Grassy aroma, hay and some spices. Hoppy grassy flavor with some metal and some bread and toffee. Balanced bitter finish.
