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 (5678) - 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.

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.

Om ett öl kunde smaka som den där vardagen du inte längre minns - den som varken hade smak, lukt eller färg, och som stal tjugofyra timmar av dig utan att du märkte det - ja, då är det Aldaris Zelta det ölet smakar.

500ml bottle. Pale colour. Skunk free smell. Light, clean taste. Overall, a solid lager.

envane (567) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2011
Clear gold with a white head. Aroma corn and alcohol(?). Taste is quite sweet corny malts with alcohol and light hops. I dunno why I am tasting so much alcohol in a 5.2% beer, but it drops the rating.

obguthr (4082) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Hay and corn husk aroma. Clear yellow, thick fizzy white head. Malt, corn, cane sugar flavor, slightly sweet initially. Finishes with honey and a hint of vanilla. This beer has some likable characteristics despite the fact that it is a mere pale lager.

ectuohy27 (627) - ESTONIA - MAY 16, 2011
Off-putting aroma (and unusually warm clear golden appearance) balanced with exceptionally clean, light pale lager taste...no skunking or notable ’off’ notes, as other reviewers have pointed out, this is surprising for the region (and considering how long it took this beer to get to my taste buds)
