djoeye (5278) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2014
Light off white head, nice clear golden body, few lacings.
Aroma; barley and bread, apple and butter, caramel and grass, lemon and hay, yeast and dust.
Taste; bread and rubber, hops and caramel, butter and malts, yeast and dusty bitterness.
Feels a bit as "zhigulivske", dirty and clean at the same time, and this beer is unpasteurized.
Flavor slightly yeasty, malty, strangely dry and sweet at the same time.
Finishes with notes of butter and apple. Inoffensive easy beer.

lobs_ols (452) - LATVIA - JUL 16, 2014
Light gold colour, strong white head. Light sour-ish hoppy aroma. Very neutral taste, some bitterness, bitter finish. Ok lager, good for the summer, drinkable in large quantities, I think.

2.5
Marduk (8513) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUN 2, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear golden color. Medium size, thick white head, stays. Sour, metallic, honey in aroma. Grainy, sweet, malty taste. Slick mouthfeel. Sweet malts in aftertaste. Simple lager.

Discore (71) - - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle. Clear pale/golden with minimal white head. Sweet malt aroma. Sweet a bit overwhelming taste. Dry. Oily texture that sticks on the roof of the mouth for a while, light body, average carbonation. Slightly bitter finish. Drinkable, but I wouldn’t say that I enjoyed it as much as I would like to.

ectuohy27 (1272) - ESTONIA - JUN 5, 2013
Blechhh...nasty off-putting aroma, astringent and slightly hoppy with more twisted dry nastiness. a bit of yeast reflecting the "unpasteurized" on the label, but blechhh regardless

zenkis (1079) - Ogre, LATVIA - FEB 2, 2013
First aroma is vomit, than comes canned peas, than ... well no, it shouldn’t be beer aroma. Weird is that after some time aroma stabilizes in tolerable hops semisweet tones. Pours pale amber, small cap. Taste not bad - some sweetness from malt, mild bitter from hops, a bit bready. Although a bit rice in flavor too. Light body, watery mouthfeel, above medium carbonation. In conclusion - will not suggest this to my enemy too.

3.5
Brainiac (218) - Riga, LATVIA - JAN 9, 2013
0,5l glass. Aroma is weak and soft hoppy. Taste is the same, but no bitterness in it. Aftertaste is not long in being hoppy, but that pure bitterness stays and its long.

Vells (1969) - Rīga, LATVIA - DEC 16, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2013 Pale golden with medium to thin white head. Disappearing quite fast.
Aroma.. mostly malts, bit grainy and grassy
Waterly with unpleasant metallic notes.
Not the worst beer, thou if theres choice from other Piebalgas, I would put this away.

thearmi (31) - Riga, LATVIA - JUL 3, 2012
A light beer with some sweetness in aroma from the hayish malt. Very clear liquid, pale colour and white head. Light sweetness. Lively carbonation, light - bodied. Feels like it has less alcohol than it actually has.

TBone (18411) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2010
Bottled (from Rimi, Riga, BB 02/2010)

Clear yellow color, huge white cloudy head. Unclean buttery-diacetylic nose with some kind of metallic, grassy and earthy notes. Taste is similar, but actually it is not so bad: this beer has some Czech character with butterness and some hops. I could call this even a pilsner. Unfortunately lots of unclean flavors too.
