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?

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.

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.

Clear Yellow, Big Head, Decent Lacing. Funky Aroma, not exactly skunk, but something along those lines. Would not be surprising since it came in a white bottle... Malt, corn, buttery, alcohol shines at the end... Gone bad or plain no good beer. Either way, nothing good or interesting here. Drinkable, but one was plenty for me... Pass it...

Poured the color of a typical macro..but more head. Sadly, it disappeared quickly again looking like a macro with zero lacing. Almost no aroma but I got a weird hint of mustard. Slight fruity malt taste. Not much going on here. Only slightly better than an American macro.

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.

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.
