Aldaris Pilzenes beer is the best of its kind in Latvia. This beer has a unique fresh hops aroma and medium bitter malty taste. This refreshing beer is meant for an exciting night out and a perfect party atmosphere.

2l bottle. Nife hopy aroma. It sure is bitter, b?t the aftertaste is not strong, but long.

A decent brew in the bottle. Clean, moderately hoppy.

Zunächst einmal großen Dank an Nils C., der mir dieses Bier aus Lettland mitbrachte. Das Aldaris Pilzener ist optisch pilstypisch hell, der Schaum geht auch in Ordnung. Getreidig-zitroniger Geruch. Ansprechend malziger und herber Geschmackseindruck, wenn auch etwas metallisch. Dies hält sich aber sehr in Grenzen. Malziger Ausklang. Ein würziges und malzbetontes Pils, das eher an ein Dortmunder Export erinnert. Trotzdem ist das Bier eine Empfehlung wert. Ganz gut.

johndoughty (4982) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle. Yellow with a small head. Sweetness is very present but nothing else is there. Not an unpleasant beer but one with nothing much to offer.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Sour hop aroma. Light yellow colour. Bright fresh biscuity hop flavour. Another good Latvian lager.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2012
My first Latvian rate proper- ticked every beer in Riga but in pre-RB days. 500ml bottle. Straw gold with a sustained tuft of head. Metallic aroma with an underlying, lemony wet grass note trying to break out. And rubber. Some Germanic soft floured grassiness and breadstick on the palate. Lingers delicately with a clean malt, unsalted popcorn-like note. Pretty tasty.

Bottle - can’t remember where from in Birmingham. Nice metallic bitterness. More a pilsner than a pale lager. Decent

Finn (6291) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2012 Flaske 0,5l fra Kilpishalli. 4,2%. Drukket under Døgnvillrating med Rune 23 Aug 12. Strågul. Høyt kremaktig & luftig skum som fester seg litt til glasset. OK malt/gress- aroma med innslag av blomster. Lett-drikkelig. Smaken litt gress med overgang til malt. Bra øl.

MarkoNm (2343) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 11, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2015 Pours a clear golden color, topped with a nice white head. There is a mild malty aroma, easily picked up. The taste is nicely balanced, not sweet, decent bitterness in the finish. A really nice lager. Refreshing and tasty.

Dorqui (2188) - Brescia, ITALY - OCT 18, 2010
Bottled in Riga. Clear golden color, elegant bubbly aspect. Medium resistence head. Discreet aroma of cereals and dampen grains. Medium smooth body with flavour of dried grassy, hop and fresh malty content on the final. Good bitter and alcohol sentors.
