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

Tricker (307) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2012
Bière blonde de 5.2 % d’alcool. Elle possède un dorat fruité. Belle finition en verre, léger col au versement, fort pétillante. Bon goût, douce, simple, agréable et rafraîchissante. Elle possède un aspect fruité, légère et succulente.

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

K-V-F-L (292) - LaVista, Nebraska, USA - APR 5, 2002
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.

smmaaren (253) - NORWAY - AUG 11, 2013
50 cl bottle from shop in Jurmala. Golden colour, white head. Little hoppy taste. Average beer. The label said Premium - nothing Premium here.

Skidds (252) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2008
Poured a golden blonde with a white head. Aroma of corn and malts. Flavour is grainy with a touch of sweetness and fruitiness. Finish is light with a touch of sweetness. A pretty good beer.

DJC (238) - USA - NOV 26, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2006 Pale gold color, with a mostly diminishing head. Some lace. Gentle malt aroma, and a woody initial taste. Malt/bread finish, with a slight bitterness. Good carbonation. Too bad I can’t get this really fresh.

Elkas (213) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2009
500ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours golden with a short lived head. Taste and aroma is typical eurolager. Not great.

KingofCastle (206) - London, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2007 bottle: I feel like I am in the Baltic States, with a pitchfork heaving hay around. Tired, i reach for a cold beer & encounter Zelta. This is a refeshing, tasty pale lager which urges me on to pitch more hay. Classic is the world here: soft malts, some bitterness, some definite sweetness, nothing too offensive, nothing to stand out. You can do better, but don’t turn it down when you need to do more farm work. These Baltic State beers have a lot of soul, I feel transported.

The same as lithuanian Kalnapilis. And the same brewer. Average Baltic lager.
