Aldara Gaišais (Aldaris pale beer) is a classical quality light beer with a fresh hops aroma and a soft bitter taste. This type of beer is an ideal thirst quencher and a perfect companion for a night out with friends.

Had this at Pocono Beerfest. Nothing grand, but not bad either. The aroma was faint, maybe a minor bit of hop. Appearance is prototypical clean yellow, adequate head that diminishes rather quickly. It’s flavor is nothing extra special, hoppy a bit tart as well. It’s ok, but not super smooth. Ok.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours Golden, pale in colour, very clear, lots of bubbles and a nice single finger head. Aroma of Honey, Grass, Grain. Initial taste of Honey, (standard for Eastern European/Russian Lagers) then some wheat, grain, grass and some herbs, maybe lemongrass, maybe fennel...a nice crisp yet slightly bitter finish. Very nice.

Bottle. 1PT. 09 oz. Pours pale yellow with nearly zero head. Aroma has a vegetable quality to it, lightly unpleasant at times but with enough hoppiness to save it and a sweet maltiness that comes through once it gets enough air. The palate is fairly good, medium carbonation, medium in body. Flavor is somewhat sour cabbage, some carrot, mildly bitter but after a sweet and malty front. Finish is light and almost okay, it leans towards something nicely hopped and fairly dry but gets screwed up with a couple off flavors I can’t define. Good bitterness, good palate, everything else is lacking. It gives me that malt liquor type corn flavor I’ve grown to hate. Better than the last few beers off the same shelf though. Just a touch more hops might have covered up all that vegetable yuckiness. I guess I got quite a ways to go before I kill the eastern bloc section at Topp’s because I’ve not even gotten through the first half case. Hope this one will continue a streak of unskunks.

Mild hop aroma. Light on the tongue but slightly sticky. Hazy honey color. Lots of head that doesn’t last. Light flavor, somewhat sweet hoppy finish.

An okey and somewhat fresh lager that works as a thirst quencher and intoxicant.

spotty lacing from a white head that quickly dissipates, murky yellow body. mild hints of hops. sweet. nothing spectacular, but it’s a pale lager.

Undistinctive lager. Has some smoothness. Light in overall: from hops and bitterness to malts and spices. Grainy, maybe bit watery. Soft carbonated. Light golden color.

Al can (pint). Aroma comes with nice hops, taste is not strong, but bitterness on the tongue, which comes afterwards is right there, finish is long. Carbonation is lively.
