Bottle. Pours a pale yellow with a small, quickly fading head. Not much aroma. Flavor is grainy and cardboard like with some sweetish malt notes. No hops whatsoever. Not good. The Bud of Latvia?

jkwood04 (3941) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 24, 2011
500ml bottle in a shaker. Pours light golden with a thick, white head. Aroma of tin, dry white bread, and hardly any hops. Flavor the same. Don’t waste your time with this beer.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 17, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2011 On keg in Riga. A blonde lager with a large white head. Metallic aroma with bready yeast notes. Flavours of caramel, bready yeast and barley. Nicely bitter. Moderate carbonation and a little CO2 prickle. A metallic aftertaste spoils this beer which could otherwise pass for an Aussie lager. A long biscuity linger and a foamy mouth-feel.

Av allt ett öl kan smaka väljer Aldara Lukus att smaka nästintill ingenting - eller åtminstone så lite som möjligt. Eftersom det är en lager kan man kosta på sig att vara förlåtande och låta det gå ned i strupen för den här gången.

cheap (4054) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2011 Big brown bottle. Nice clean aroma. Looks decent in the glass. First taste is rather rude for a lager, comes across more like high gravity or cheap malt liquor. Aactually seems to be much more than the 5% listed here, more like 7%. Gets a little more civilized as the session continues. However it still has that little nasty bitter background.

TheBeerGod (5249) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2011
Bottle. Golden bodied with a medium eggshell white head. Nose is grainy with malt, soft honey notes, light lemon and grassy Euro hops. Taste is bready malt, honey, buttery biscuit grassy hops and light, zesty lemon. Body is light-medium with a pleasant dryness and a crisp feel. Ends with a touch bigger hop bitterness, more honey, bread dough, grains and light lemon.

adnielsen (9077) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Tasted from a 500 mL bottle purchased in Littleton, Colorado. Pours a clear pale yellow appearance with a large white head. Pale malts and just a hint of skunkiness in the head. Fairly rounded body for a Pale Lager.

Pours a slighjtly cloudy golden color with a short lived head. Mild aroma with a hint of bread. Mildly hopped. A little above average.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Bottle in Riga. A pretty standard lager but it’s clean and refreshing.
