Tap, Riga... A terrible, headache inducing pint. Truly awful chemical taste, I can only imagine that the pipes hadn’t been cleaned correctly...

Cheap, corn sweetener aroma and flavor. Not a drain pour but had to wolf it down. Look at the bright side: it would beat any mass-produced Amerikansk malt liquor!

Snegurochka (382) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2012
330ml from tap@Alus Arsenals, Riga. (22.Dec.2012) Light yellow body with filmy layer on top. Mild hops and malt aroma, flowers and cookies, maybee some citrus notes? Most of all sweet. The taste of artificial acidic lemon overwhelms me. Too carbonated. Reminds most of all of a (bad) Russian lager, but then again there are many Russians living in Latvia...

daniel0017 (380) - Yukon, CANADA - OCT 21, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2006 Light amber colored body (for a Lager) with a decent white, foamy head of one finger and very good lacing. Has a weak, hoppy aroma that leads you to a very unexpected and inviting sweet honey, hops, malted barley flavor that is brilliantly smokey. Some more complex flavors are present in the aftertaste. Very good finish in this one... Consistency is a little watery, but not boring. A definitively different Lager. This one’s underated if you ask me and a doubly excellent tasting Lager.

Pours a clear straw colour with a big bubbly head. Malt aroma. Higher carbonation than most europeans. Sweetish malt flavour with mild and somehow strange hop bitterness.

SeanMacGC (332) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 22, 2009
Bottle, 500ml. Pours clear yellow, with short-living bubbly head. Hoppy aroma, with some citrus on the palate. Quite highly carbonated. Run of the mill.

fhoublon (312) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
Canette de 500 ml achetée à la SAQ du Complexe Desjardins. Dégustée le 4 mars 2010 (dimpled bug), date de production 18 juillet 2009. Bière blonde limpide pâle. Mousse beaucoup, col crémeux épais et persistant. Peu effervescente, grosses bulles. Odeur qui rappelle le ginger ale. Goût de grain de maïs (fait penser à de l’eau dans laquelle on a fait tremper des grains), ainsi que de citron en finale. Désaltérante malgré qu’elle soit assez sucrée. Manque de corps, de caractère, ensemble un peu terne.

Canette de 500ml, robe dorée, arôme de grain frais et de houblons, en bouche on remarque le citron en avant plan.

no real smell, lightly musty, tiny bit of honey. bright clear yellow, soapy big white head with lace. taste is very soft malt, honey sweet, ending with a floral, fruity hop note. soft but not watery. this is pretty nice, no off notes, just a light tasting but flavourful lager

Thickish, malty, oddly calibrated but not altogether unpleasant. Would be absolutely unbearable warm, so make sure your Zelta is well-chilled. Good with heartier pizzas and pastas.
