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?

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.

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.

bunget (572) - 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.

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.

Medium-gold with a continual stream of bubbles rising towards the paper-thin head. Aromas and flavours work in unison, offering a solid dose of malt and confectionery sugar. The round malt flavour even holds out on the medium-length finish. Quite nice.

hens (534) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - OCT 17, 2013
0.5L bottle. Strong bread, hop aroma. Taste is sweet an light lemon flavor. Hops goming out in the end again and this takes normal tasteful finish. Drinkable sometimes

haf (528) - Gijon, SPAIN - MAY 26, 2008
Botella 500 Ml. No es tan mala como parece, pero se puede hacer larga de tomar (por lo menos la botella de medio litro)

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2007
500ml bottle, 5.2% Generously carbonated, golden colour, with a thick creamy looking white head. The nose is of grains, malt, and unfortunatly a little urine. Tastes much the same, a little too malty for my tastes, with a somewhat complex and spicy aftertaste which is easily the beers highlight.
