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)

rough around the edges. grassy... lots of head... pale pale yellow in colour. Smooth like in the pilsner urquell. Grassy, a very good lager.

asedzie (624) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 6, 2007
0.5 l bottle. Pours golden with thick white head. Smell is sweetish, grainy. Flavor is malty grains, sweetness and alcohol. Some slight adjunct cabbage-like flavors in the background. Creamy, carbonated mouthfeel. Good and substantial for the style.

TheCaptain (613) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2008
Bottle, poured a yellow gold with a white head, good carbonation. Some bitter hops on the pallet with light malt and grains. An average Lager but a little lacking.

A solid lager with a mildly pleasant aftertaste. A great beer to have on a hot Summer day.

Welcome to Riga. Say hello to the beer that is everywhere. You can imagine what it tastes like - just look at the picture. Looks delicious eh?

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2003
No No No. This is a very pale yellow with floating things which probably arent supposed to be there. I haven't heard of the Zelta having a second fermentation. Smells sour. Tastes bitter and does have a sourness to it. Uninteresting Latvian beer.

bunget (578) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2012
500ml can. A pale clear golden body, medium white head with poor retention, no lacing at all. Aroma of cereal, hay, rice, touch of grass. Tastes a little better, cereal sweetness, touch of herbal hop bitterness. Light body, thin texture, average carbonation, abrupt finish.

D (577) - Gdynia, POLAND - JUL 22, 2006
A typical lager, but rather well made - not too much carbonation, strong hops flavour, bitter finish. Drinks well, nice summer lager as the fellow ratebeerian wrote.

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.
