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.

smmaaren (236) - 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.

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 (205) - 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.

Donatas (188) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - DEC 25, 2002
The same as lithuanian Kalnapilis. And the same brewer. Average Baltic lager.

Brainiac (160) - Riga, LATVIA - OCT 22, 2014
0.5l bottle. Color is indeed golden as it looks in transparent glass bottle. Aroma is weak but is of pleasent malt a little. Tongue sensations leave weak touch but its all good. Aftertaste is rather not long.

LordBeamish (144) - Boozetown, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2007
bottle: My initial drink of this beer felt like I had taken an enormous swig of Billy Bee honey straight from the honey bear. However, much like Ekstra this beer grew on me as I made my way to the bottom of the glass. Very nice hops and malts blend to produce a nice flavour. Finishes sweet but not in an offensive way. All around a very satisfying brew
