Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from lcbo. Tasted in dimple mug. Appearance is clear yellow, very light in colour. Light white head. Light aroma - corn, malt amd grain. Mass produced macro hints.... Taste is sweet with a nasty malt beverage finish. My day of tasting ’baltic’ lagers ends with a fiz.......

Canned. Golden colour with minor white head. It has a seet and malty aroma. The flavour contains a strong taste of malt, kinda sweet with a bitter finish.

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.

liked this one, pouring into a darkish gold colour with a short-lived foamy white head and very little lacing. Aroma was "hop over malt", and the taste seemed to offer even more malt. Smooth and refreshing. FYI, the back label says mine was produced in 26 October 2004, and I bought it 17 June 2005 in Toronto.

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

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.
