Bottle at Peculiar Pub, New York, NY

A: The beer is crystal clear light yellow in color and has a slight amount of carbonation. It poured with a short white head that died down, leaving some patches of patches of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of fruit stand out in the smell - apples seem to stand out in particular.
T: The taste has flavors of apples and pale malts along with hints of corn adjuncts.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer doesn't have very interesting flavors, but the taste is inoffensive and no skunk is perceptible despite the beer coming in a clear bottle.

500 ml bottle from off licence in Midlands Ireland. Probably stocked for ethnic Latvian's and the growing number ofIrish beer drinkers looking to try the beers of the world. Nothing to dislike. Easy to drink.

Piss yellow. Flat.
Flowery aroma. Grainy with a bit of fruit. Cheap perfume.
Initial sweetness protrudes into a grainy, fruity finish.
Moderate carbonation.
The overall experience is one that I do not wish to replicate.

Served in a bottle at Peculier Pub in New York, NY

A: Pours a crystal clear pale yellow in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some hints of lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy white head that quickly reduces to a couple of small patches of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of sweet corn adjuncts with lighter aromas of pale malts and some light fruit (apples - almost like a cider).

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of pale malts with some corn adjunct lending it a light amount of sweetness. There are also some light flavors of apple. No hops are perceptible.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Kind of surprising that there is no skunkiness to the taste or smell of this beer considering it came in a clear glass bottle - overall a decent offering for the Euro Pale Lager style and inoffensive (which is not something I can always say about this style and/or Eastern European mass produced lagers in general).

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pale straw colour, big foamy head that settles pretty fast, to a fairly thin head, loads of carbonation going upwards.

S: Fair amount of hop, some sugar, hint of grass

T: very sweet, hardly any hop, a little bit of malt, something floral at the finish; overall not much there, nothing bad, although for me too sweet.

M: A little thin, and undercarbonated, on the plus side fairly dry,

O: It's a descent beer, nothing great (I actually start to doubt that I will ever find that great lager), but I can enjoy it. A friend of mine grew fond of this beer while living in Latvia and I can see why, it's probably a descent session beer.
