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 (3830) - 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.

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)

Fruity, floral and malty. Grassy hops. I was rather surprised by this. Looked rather thick when I poured it into my pint.

My first beer from aldaris. Looks like yer standard pale lager in a mug. No visible C02 while it sits there. Cleaner metallic sterile aroma. No skunk. Good CO2 sizzle on the tongue. Taste is mild, laid back and quite refreshing, better than expected for a baltic. Easy going pleasant beer drinken experience. Even some citrus in the background. Fine finish.

I drank this from the bottle into my Rochefort glass...The beer pours a light honey gold with lots of carbonation, albeit pretty light taht falls quickly, decent lacing....The aroma is medium gives off honey, lots of yeast a little hop/skunk finish but very light...After tasting this I am super surprised by the rating, no way this is a C beer. The tasate is light but its tasty, light hops, yeasty, a very crisp drinker. This is what a light beer should be, tasty, easy to drink and lacking skunk. Great effor there.

500ml pull-top clear bottle. It pours exactly how it looks in the bottle, a pale gold with a big foamy bright white head. It actually is a nice looking beer, but that doesn’t mean you should use the clear bottle, especially for export bottles. The smell has some honey, paper, graham, and a hint of grassy hops. Not skunked thank heavens, gotta grab it from the back of the shelf. The taste is very similar to the smell, there is a big hit of grain and cooked veggies that make the flavor just average EPL crap. It will end up with a nice rating on here, but it is average at best for the style and not really worth drinking. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-28-2010 01:16:48

Tasted from a 500 mL bottle purchased in Littleton, Colorado. Clear pale yellow appearance with a larger white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Sweet pale malty aroma that’s not that pleasing. Sweet pale malty flavor that’s bitter, a bit skunky, and not that easy to swallow.
