500ml flip-top bottle, as Zelta Premium 5.2% abv., beer gift from Helga. Crystal clear, golden body. Fragile lacing from a airy, chalk white head. Plain grainy malts to the nose. Taste of sweet, bready malts. Dry, sweet fruity end. Minimal hops. Soft carbonated. Standard for the style (shared with Frau Eva, 20.03.2012).

Very light yellow color, but a great taste. Not too bitter, but a crisp beer. Foam is crystal white. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap, Riga... A terrible, headache inducing pint. Truly awful chemical taste, I can only imagine that the pipes hadn’t been cleaned correctly...

It was a long ago, don’t remember much... But in my memories, a really good pale lager. Hope to taste it again

reebtogi (4183) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 1, 2012
330ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a 2 finger white head that setttles quickly leaving virtually no lacing. Aroma is mild cereal grains and light hops. Taste is light malt sweetness and mild hop bitterness. Light to medium body with decent carbonation. This is a drinkable beer on a hot day, nothing more.

Bottle
A: corn, sweet malts, fruity
T:sweet corn/malt, fruity, slight sulfur,br> Not a bad lager. I was worried that I would be opening a bottle of skunk juice, but I was wrong. Nothing really wrong with this beer other then being a macro style lager.

gunnar (5296) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2011
Bottle, gift from my gf. Pours clear straw colored with a big white head. Aroma of sweet pale malts. Taste is sweet grains, watery mouthfeel. Like so many other pale lagers, this is not outstanding, even amongst water.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 30, 2011
Bottle. Pours an orangish yellow with a decent white head. Aroma is sweet malts with maybe a hint of hops. Flavor is sweet (caramel malts) with a hint of straw from the hops. Also detect a little metallic taste.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 17, 2011
On keg at Lido in Riga. Pours a blonde colour with a fair white head. Aroma is very yeasty. Bready yeast, caramel and barley notes. Flavours of yeast, banana, barley and light caramel. A long yeasty caramel linger. A foamy mouth-feel with mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. Just OK.

northropfrye (2213) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 2, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2011 Bottle. For a pale lager this isn’t bad. There’s nothing off-puting about it, but no discernible flavour or aroma, either.
