COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aldaris Luksus (Lux) Super Premium pale beer is brewed from a unique kind of hops grown only in one part of Europe. Its taste can not be compared to any other beer types. Aldaris Luksus Beer is served in the bottles especially developed for protecting its unique taste from the effect of the sun.

bought at red apple in bremerton, washington. pour is clear, light yellow with a 2 finger foamy white head. smell is sweet, straw, faint touch of fruit (maybe apple or pear). taste is silage, honey, a bit like beer that is not quite done brewing (green beer i think they call it), woody. better than bud, coors, miller, etc... :O)

PorterPounder (5825) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2007
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverages - 500 ml bottle. Light golden pour, soft white head, thin, but leaves a bit of lacing. Rather neutral aroma with hints of hard water amd metal. Flavor has a hint of honey sweetness with some saaz hoppiness. Common lager flavor and thankfully lacking that musty, yeasty flavor that some of these types of beers seems to have. Somewhat crisp finishes. Mouthfeel is rather thin and a tad tinny. Does in a pinch.

Sigmund (5421) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2007
500 ml bottle, in the café at Stockmann, Riga. ABV is 5.2%. Pale golden colour, moderate head. Sweetish and fruity aroma. Moderately malty flavour, moderate sweetness, low bitterness.

The aroma has grassy hops, plus sweet malts. The appearance is pale gold. The flavor is like the aroma but is balanced between the hops and malts. The palate is rally thin and the finish slightly tinny. This one is a little bit dry in the finish. Not good but not awful either. I like the fact that it actually has detectable hops, something not found in this style of beer very often.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 14, 2007
Golden colored, little white head. Sweet aroma with mild hops and fruity tones, maybe some grainy tones there also. Medium bodied. Flavor is not as clean as aroma: some cardboard with sweet fruitiness and mild hops, some metal in aftertaste.

heemer77 (5133) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 11, 2006
This is cool looking textured bottle. This beer was a new arrival in Coralville, IA. The body poured a light yellow with a dense and thin white head. The aroma is glazed donuts with a little bit of cherries. The taste has sweet potatoes with some apples. There is also a little bit of tea. A decent light lager.

Very light colored, with a relatively strong, semi-sweet, damp hay aroma. At first, there’s cereal grain and decent hop flavor, but that is quickly replaced by alcohol. I’ve certainly had worse pale lagers, but I’m happy to report there are better ones within easy reach.

Gold colour; harsh grain and metallic taste. Somehow this is better than Stiprais.
