Vells (1808) - Rīga, LATVIA - FEB 17, 2013
Clear golden with medium white head, that disappears quite fast. Bit Lacing. Aroma.. grassy hops, bit malty, fruity. Quite well balanced with no unpleasant spikes. Sweet with quite bitter finish, hints of sour. Decent beer for price/performance

FatPhil (15813) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 5, 2010
Keg (Riga Beer Festival 2010)
5 Initially almost nothing, as the keggy head smothered all the aroma. Getting close, there was some dusty hops, and perhaps some ginger. As it warms, there are lots of herby grassy hops
3 Rich gold, large light white head.
5 A full grassy and herby hoppy body. Packed full of grains, but also other vegetable matter too. Quite bizarre, but very much Piebalgas.
3+ Soft palate, decent carbonations. Finish very hoppy - a touch papery, but green too. Vegetal in places too.
9 A well crafted and interesting beer, but not to my taste so much. Anna adds "Only a little bit shit in the taste".

NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2010
500 ml bottle. Pours light golden, pure white head. Light cereal grains and grassy hops in the aroma, flavor adds a corn like sweetness. Kind of blah, not much going on, but a totally unoffensive lager.

glennmastrange (2828) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2009
Bottle. Light malt aromas of grain, grass for the hops and a hint of apple. Head is large, fizzy, white and clumpy. It has no lacing and is mostly lasting. Flavor is lightly sweet and acidic to start and the finish is lightly acidic. Palate is light to medium, watery and has a fizzy carbonation. An average tasting Pale Lager with a little uniqueness.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - FEB 6, 2009
(bottle - 500 ml) Slightly cloudy gold color with a soapy white head. Aroma is sweet and malty, almost with a hint of iced tea and biscuits. Not much hops in the aroma. Flavor is sweet and malty at the front that moves to a dry and grainy middle of hay, grass, earth, and hops. Finishes bitter and slightly sour with a light hint of sweet malts. Thin-bodied.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2008
Bottle. I am thinking this has to be a new country. Pale lager, white lacing. Simple malt sweetness and breadiness. A light floral hop finish.

Lubiere (13681) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2008
A hazy golden lager with a thick white head. In aroma, a stricking maple water aroma, woody, a bit of corn. In mouth, a crisp malt with sweet light vanilla, a bit cloying, with definite cardboard notes, signs of oxidation. Tasted Jan. 2007.

KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2008
Bottle in Riga. A whiff of boiled veg her, but the beer is certainly not bad - cereals with grassy hops in the finish. Very decent for a lager of this strength!

faroeviking (10742) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 2, 2008
Bottle. Pours a golden colour with a medium short lasting white head. Aroma of grains and malt. Thin mouthfeel. The flavour is a bit sweet with malt, grains and some bitter hops.
