fonefan (50733) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2012

Draught @ Alaus Stacija, Riga, Latvia.

Clear medium yellow orange colour with a small average, frothy, good lacing, mostly diminishing, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, hay, straw, butter. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter with a long duration, malty, sweet malt, dry, hoppy. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20120729]

Travlr (25828) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 19, 2017
Draft at Brevinga. Cleat yellow color. Straw aroma. Taste is plain lager. Not bad.

omhper (25565) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2012
Draught at Alaus Stacija, Riga. Clear deep golden creamy head. Restrained hops in a sweet malt aroma. Faint notes of bubblegum and butter. Light bodied, mid dry with saltier bitter finish. Quite nice.

TBone (18099) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 6, 2012
[email protected] Õlleklubi
Hazy orange color, no head. Cereals, grainy, a bit sweetish aroma. Light to medium bodied. Grainy, sweet malty, unfermented sugars. Lively carbonation. Very typical "mass brewpub" beer. I am not impressed.

Bottled (04/2005)
Golden color, small creamy off-white head. Hoppy (Saaz?) nose, only slightly skunked. Some grassy hops in the flavor. malty finish. Not really hoppy enough to be a pilsener, but quite different to the most of other Latvian "gaisais" I have sampled.

FatPhil (16930) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 2, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2014 Tap (Brewery Olleklubi) as dodgy fake name (5:4:6:3:11=2.9)
Almost wheatbeery, with it’s rich orange, and haze. tiny ring head. Sweet, almost corny, aroma. Similar in the mouth, perhaps a touch of honey. Fullish smooth palate, but quite harsh carbonation for a snowy night. Light graininess in the finish, just a hint of They seem to have at least temporarily cured the diacetyl disaster they were suffering from. Pretty drinkable, but as I’ve just eaten and drunk to my full, I found it hard to get something with this level of carbonation down.
Rerate: Tap (ditto) shared with TBone (6:3:5:2:10=2.7)
Sweet and corny. Fizzy, too harsh. Needs swirling a lot. Then the corniness resembles grains more. These beers all still need work, clearly.
Earlier Rating as "Rezeknes Gaisais": 5/13/2011 Total Score: 2.8
Tap (S. Brevinga Alus/Viski, Riga) - 4.6% 2010- version. Not entirely sure it’s the Gaisais
5+ Sweet treacly aroma, Anna gets some ginger.
4 Hazy reddy orange. Settles to a small head after a big frothy pour.
5 Very latvian. A touch lactic, but very full of a simple grainy taste.
3 Pleasant mouthfeel. Finish has a new taste for me - the raw, freshly steeped malt grains.
11 Super easy to drink lager, maybe a bit sweet, but it goes down so easily.
Rerate: Tap (Folks Klubs, Riga) as "Rezenkes Gords Ols" apparently at 4.6% not sure this is the right place for the review (6:3:6:3:12+=3.0+)
Nice deep reddy orange. Nice sweet dunkel, caramel forward. Easy drinker, but a bit thin for a dunkel.

2.3
Hermod (8250) - Vantaa, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2015
[email protected] Brewery Ølleklubi as "Hansa Eerste Velvet". Had this on 29.8.2015. Poured amber in color with a quickly disappearing white head. Aroma was malts, some vegetable like notes and cereals. Flavor had the same things going on, vegetables, grains and sweetness. Low bitterness. Very generic.
