0,5L can was bought at Rimi hipermarkets in Bauska , in Latvija. Pours a shortlived head on an amber to deep golden body. Scents of hops, yeast, meadows, hay. Tastes roasted hops, malts, grains, and has a well balanced bitterness. Alright in the mouth. Ends with bread, grains, some malts, some hints from a barbecue. Overall really a decent lager, close to premium lager.

Drake (8546) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Half liter bottle from Beer Run. Pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a medium sized frothy, fizzy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of mild malt and floral notes. The taste is very sweet malts with a bit of tartness and peppery hops. Medium bodied. On the aroma, I wasn’t sure this wasn’t exactly the same as the Zelta I just had, but though the taste may be a bit on the sweet side, it is actually a pleasant surprise.

larsga (6206) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 28, 2013
Biggish offwhite head. Clear yellow body. Light papery aroma with very faint spicy herbal notes. Sweet-dryish papery strawy taste with earthy grainy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, slick mouthfeel. Dryish minty spicy grainy aftertaste with earthy oily notes. Not bad, in fact, it’s kind of nice. (0.5l bottle from Stockmann, Riga. Labelled "Aldaris Luksus Originalais", not clear it’s the same beer. ABV 5.2%.)

imdownthepub (10226) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from East European Supermarket, High St. Banbury. Gold with short white head. Sharpish, grainy, corn like beer with a slightly odd boiled veg note, either that or the Christmas sprouts are repeating. Some sweetness, but basically this is not too good.
